Planning a trip to Kent? Not sure where to stay and what to see? Here are a few suggestions to help get you started.
Holiday cottages: There's nothing quite like having a country home to escape to on the weekends.
It's all fine and well to spend your week running in the rat race that is London, or any big city, but when Friday afternoon comes around, hard workers like to get into their cars and head out of the city, to a place where neighbours live several acres away, and the only noise heard in the morning is the chirping of birds.
Of course owning a cottage is an expense not everyone can afford.
If that's the case for you, then why not rent one? There are some lovely holiday cottages available for rent in Kent, from barn conversions, to oast houses, farm houses, and seaside apartments.
Whether you're taking a family vacation, a romantic break or just need to relocate temporarily, rental cottages are an ideal solution.
Bed and Breakfasts: Bed and Breakfasts are a great way to stay warm and cosy as if in your own home, while still being cooked for and having your bed made.
It's not that making your bed or making your own pancakes is a big deal, it's just nice when someone else is there to do it for you, especially when you're on vacation.
Some famous bed and breakfasts in Kent include Orchard Way, The Oak, Elmsted Court Farmhouse, Hopes Grove Cottage, and The Beachbrow Hotel.
