Holidays in Kent

The leafy lanes and wealth of public rights of way that criss-cross Kent's beautiful landscape, provide endless opportunities for those who enjoy walking, cycling or riding. Trips along the lanes will take you past lavender fields, vineyards, orchards, pretty villages with welcoming pubs and oast houses that are a popular sight in this picturesque county. With such beautiful scenery to offer, it is hardly surprising that almost a quarter of Kent is designated an AONB.

Kent is the oldest county in the country with an incredible amount of fascinating historic sites to visit including the City of Canterbury with its beautiful cathedral; the White Cliffs of Dover that took some 80 million years to form; Rochester the inspiration for many of Dickens' greatest works and home to the second oldest cathedral in the country and Sandwich, a historic town with more medieval buildings than any other part of the UK (and a links golf course that challenges St Andrews!). As a county, it also has more than its fair share of attractions for exciting days out. Why not take a look at our top recommended attractions in Kent.

There are plenty of shopping opportunities in Kent. Meander around the tiny streets of the unspoilt towns of Tenterden, Royal Tunbridge Wells and Cranbrook; shop until you drop at Bluewater, one of Europe's largest shopping centres or head for the bright lights of London's West End which is under an hour by train.

The Garden of England is home to plenty of farmers markets and proud of its local produce which can so often be found in its picturesque pubs and fine dining restaurants. Succulent Whitstable oysters, wonderfully fresh Dover sole, award winning English Wines from Kentish vineyards and beer ('the drink of England') produced by the oldest brewery in the country.

Why not take full advantage of a cottage holiday in Kent with a day trip to Lille or lunch in Paris! Made possible by the Eurostar from Ashford or Ebsfleet, or take your car via the Dover / Ramsgate sea crossings. For more information about the 'Garden of England', check out our blog article on Kent.
