Town and city breaks in Kent
Despite there being a number of bewitching market towns and country settlements, it is often argued that no place better reflects the charm of the county than the historic city of Canterbury. Whilst Maidstone is the administrative county town, Canterbury boasts both a cathedral and a university. If you're looking for surroundings that boast historic charm and architecture, book our Kent hotel, Abbots Barton, located in over 2 acres of beautiful grounds nestled in the middle of the quiet city. The city is steeped in history and rural charm and is a world heritage site. It is timeless yet contemporary, with a wide spectrum of shopping destinations and a number of world-class restaurants. The small spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells in west Kent is perfect for travellers who love olde-worlde pubs and unique, quaint shops. Visit nearby stately homes for the quintessential English experience. Enjoy a drive round the winding county roads stopping off for snacks and drinks in some of the other inviting settlements such as Folkestone, Seven Oaks, Bromley, Gravesend and Tonbridge.
Holidays in the Kent countryside
To really experience the full beauty of this breath-taking region, book a Best Western hotel in Kent countryside, the perfect starting point for a holiday. Blow away those city cobwebs and experience the stunning vistas on the Kent Downs, where nature is a joy to behold. Elsewhere, Romney Marsh is an unspoiled and dramatic landscape, perfect for walkers and wildlife watchers. Certainly don't miss the famous White Cliffs Of Dover, where the views go on for miles. Whether you just want to stop and admire the scenery over a coffee, or perhaps get involved in horse riding or cycling, the Kent countryside is a glorious place to have a short break.
Beach holidays in Kent
The Kent coastline boasts many delightful seaside town and beach resorts that are ideal for all the family. A relaxing stay in a Kent hotel in the small seaside town of Whitstable offers everything from freshly-caught oysters to seafront walks past pretty, multi-coloured beach huts and the chance to browse in little art galleries. Or if you are looking for a busier vibe, Margate offers traditional seaside attractions such as exciting funfairs, fish and chips and sandy beaches, ideal for a bucket-and-spade holiday with the children. Take a romp along the White Cliffs of Dover and take in the stunning views across to the continent out to sea, and the endless green landscape dotted with Exmoor ponies and rare butterflies on your other side. Margate is also perfect for exciting evening entertainment. So even if you just want to sit on a deckchair and stare out to sea, a hotel in Kent is the ideal base for your seaside stay.
