Boutique Cottages in Kent

Bordering London, Surrey, East Sussex and Essex, Kent is a stunning county that’s home to some incredible countryside and coastline and is often referred to as the Garden of England. 

With incredible natural phenomena to explore such as the White Cliffs of Dover, the Isle of Thanet with its blue flag beaches, the High Weald AONB, Romney Marsh, the Great Stour River, and the Thames estuary, there’s plenty to keep the nature enthusiast happy. 

With plentiful walking, cycling, and swimming options from the coast to the country and everything in between, there’s plenty to keep you active too, whilst a boat trip out to see the cliffs and resident seals is a must-do for epic views. 

Kent is abundant in places of historical importance including the castles of Leeds, Dover, and Hever as well as the UNESCO World Heritage site of Canterbury and its Cathedral. Alternatively, Sandwich blessed with perfectly preserved medieval houses, and Goodwin Sands with its collection of fishermen’s cottages and Georgian town houses are well worth a visit. Whatever you do, even the most passionate of history buffs will be satisfied.

Foodies will find a plethora of excellent restaurants, country inns, cafes, and tea rooms to satisfy, whilst the chalky landscape makes it perfect for vineyards, so expect wineries galore such as Balfour and Chapel Down. 

For shopping, you’re spoilt for choice with the spa town of Tunbridge Wells being a particular favourite with the chic independent shops along the Pantiles a must for perusing.
