Find cottages in Folkestone

Situated on the south Kent coast the port town of Folkestone has remained a classic example of the traditional British seaside holiday destination for over a hundred years.

Folkestone looks out across the sea towards the coast of France, which is visible on a clear day from the higher points around the town. White chalk cliffs and rolling green countryside provide the background scenery to a town that has everything you need for a great British holiday. There’s a lift down to the Lower Leas Coastal Park, with areas for a relaxing BBQ or picnic on a sunny day and close by is Folkstone’s sandy beach.

The centre of Folkestone is a mix of traditional buildings and cobbled streets with a more modern restaurant and bar scene, giving you plenty of interesting places to explore during the day and an abundance of choices for dining in the evening. A traditional cinema can also be found in the town centre along with the Cultural Quarter, where you will find art galleries, live music and craft events taking place.

Day out ideas include taking a trip on the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway which takes you on a steam engine ride from Hythe via New Romney to Dungeness. Feel at one with nature at the RSPB Nature Reserve at Dungeness or visit Romney Marsh for its open spaces; woodlands and wetlands.

The rural countryside and dramatic cliffs surrounding Folkestone are a popular choice for outdoor pursuits such as walking and cycling, with numerous trails and routes that take in the wonderful sights in the area. This stretch of England’s south coast also has a number of castles build by Henry VIII and towers from the period of the Napoleonic Wars to help protect the country against French invasion.
