The area around Dover is known as 'White Cliffs Country' after the iconic coastline that is so associated with England. It also provides a lovely destination for a relaxing cottage holiday in Kent, where you can take your time exploring this famous area's magnificent coast and quiet countryside.
There's plenty to see and do here; with excellent walking and cycling trails, as well as a number of equestrian centres. Cottington Lakes is a popular fishing spot that has its own tackle shop, or you could take a sea fishing trip from Dover Marina. Watersports are also a popular pastime and Dover Sea Sports Centre offers a wide range from which to choose.
If you fancy something a bit more relaxing, the area is home to many family-friendly attractions. Soak up some local history at Dover Castle or head for Deal Castle, one of England's finest Tudor artillery forts. Gather the whole family and head off on a sea safari from Dover Port or take a boat tour of the White Cliffs; children will even get the opportunity to take the helm!
After a long day's sightseeing, relax with refreshments at the Cider Works at Green Oak Farm, where you'll find a range of Kentish products and locally produced cider. If you want a break from the kitchen Dover has some fine waterfront seafood restaurants which are renowned for their locally sourced seafood and provide lovely views over the marina.
