Our cottage collection has been growing steadily for the last few years as demand has increased. In addition, short cottage breaks and weekends away in these lovely Kent holiday homes is something we have started to specialise in. With such good travel connections to the main cities and the changes in holiday patterns, we see more and more requests for 3 or 4 days breaks.
The baby boomer years have led to an increase in the number of larger parties wishing to celebrate the passing of time and cottages can offer a very economical alternative to hotels. The opportunity to enjoy one another's company in a more relaxed and open environment without the restrictions or costs of a hotel, is increasingly popular.

There are many famous towns and villages, all with their own selection of cottages. Depending on what type of cottage break you are after will determine the town. Perhaps you wish to visit the seaside and soak up the salt air or wish to explore the rich history of Kentish towns.
Some of the most famous towns are frequented year on year and see many people return to the halcyon days of their childhood. Names such as Sheerness, Whitstable, Herne Bay, Thanet, Margate, Broadstairs, Ramsgate, Deal, Dover, Folkestone, Hythe, Dimchurch and new Romney, conjure up beach holidays, sand dunes and long strolls along the Eastern reaches of the British Isles. This collection of towns can either look east across the mouth of the English channel to Brugge or Dunkirk, North to Clacton and Felixstowe, or directly South to France. The region is surrounded by the sea from North to South West.
This broad sweep of beach front towns has a very important place in the history of England from the ancient battles encountered with our neighbours and Nordic brethren, to the more recent songs written about the “White Cliffs of Dover”. This vein of history runs deep throughout the British Isles and draws people to experience the comfort of the recent peaceful heritage and to stare across the ocean and absorb the atmosphere that only being close to the sea can produce. Add to these famous seaside resorts; Maidstone, Sevenoaks, Royal Tunbridge Wells and Canterbury and the story goes even deeper. There can be no more historic locations than the university town of Canterbury with its famous cathedral. Only a short drive along the A290 from the famous Oyster festival town of Whitstable or Herne Bay this famous town can be visited on days out and the countryside surrounding is also well supported with holiday cottages in hidden villages, if the brisk sea side is not your thing!
Every town has its own attractions many too notable to be recorded here, such as Maidstone, sitting at very heart of the Garden of England, with its orchards and hop gardens and with its own history including Leeds Castle and the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
