Find cottages in KentVisit Kent

Classic rural landscapes and traditional seaside entertainment along with ancient history and spectacular gardens; come and explore Kent and see for yourself the 'Garden of England'.

You don't have to travel far from your cottages to find beauty, fun and relaxation. A truly diverse county, Kent has some of the most unspoilt countryside in the British Isles, not to mention iconic landmarks, award-winning beaches and thrilling attractions for young and old.

Not to be missed are the world famous White Cliffs of Dover, which stand tall and proud welcoming you to England's oldest county. Discover Canterbury, where you're guaranteed one of the best views of the city from the Westgate Towers at Canterbury Cathedral; a truly magnificent World Heritage Site. Step in to the dazzling medieval past of Dover Castle and explore Secret Wartime Tunnels and stories of King Henry II's court.

For a taste of life in the fast lane head to Buckmore Park Kart Circuit and kids will love the up-close animal encounters at Howletts Wild Animal Park and Port Lympne Wild Animal Park. Step back in time to experience nineteenth-century England at Dickens' World and the Guildhall Museum, while cider connoisseurs will love Biddenden Vineyards and Cider Works. There's a lot to see and do, and self-catering cottage offers the best way to make the most of this wonderful area.

There are many ways to take in the beauty of the county; by foot, bike, car or water, but there's nothing quite like the grand heritage of the Kent and East Sussex Railway. Discover the captivating essence of the 'Garden of England' as the line wends along ten and a half miles of charming countryside. Wander off the beaten track and seek out little-known paths, where the deer of the woods around Challock and the orchids of the North Downs await discovery.

Why not enjoy some traditional seaside fun and head to Margate, Broadstairs or Ramsgate for Blue Flag awarded beaches, where you can enjoy anything from building sandcastle and exploring rock pools to exhilarating watersports and funfairs. Seaside town Whitstable offers quirky art galleries and craft shops and there's no shortage of tasty seafood restaurants for when hunger strikes.

Be enriched by Kent's exciting past and present. Take a look at our selection of holiday cottages in Kent today.
