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.

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.

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.

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.
