From Dover’s white cliffs to the magnificent Canterbury cathedral to the new Turner Gallery there’s so much to see and do in Kent. Shop on cobbled streets in Rye, experience safari adventures at Port Lympne Wild Animal Park, taste wines at Biddenden Vineyards, admire brightly-coloured orchards and beautiful countryside driving through picture card villages or visit impressive Bodiam or Leeds Castle.

Hythe has a lovely high street with plenty of antiques, small shops and restaurants. Folkestone’s Creative Quarter is a hive of arty activity with galleries galore. Folkestone Leas nature park overlooks the ocean and perfectly complements dinner at the Grand Hotel. Dungeness Nature Reserve is fascinating with fishermen’s huts and the largest expanse of shingle in Europe - a haven for wildlife spotters. Dymchurch Railway is a 15" gauge main-line in miniature, with operating steam and diesel hauled trains.  France is only an hour away with the Eurotunnel.

For rainy days and retail therapy, Ashford has a large outlet centre next to the International train station. There are several golf courses nearby such as Littlestone Warren (British open qualify rounds), Lydd, Hythe Imperial or Sene Valley.

Luxury self-catering holiday accommodation in Kent

Welcome to the bloomin' marvellous "Garden of England", Kent! Sprinkled with Oliver’s Travels cute cottages, bee-shaped lodges, mansion houses, seaside wonders and colossal party houses, you will find just the perfect place to stay to discover this wonderful county. So, gather up your favourite friends or your family or whisk away your special someone for a romantic getaway. Thanks to Oliver’s Travels, your adventure in this flowery haven is just a booking away!

Kent is home to some real showstoppers. First up is Canterbury Cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the Archbishop of Canterbury's favourite hangout. With its Gothic glam and incredible history, it is a must-visit for history buffs and spiritual seekers alike. Leeds Castle, named the "loveliest castle in the world", is surrounded by a moat and stunning gardens that make you question if you have stepped into a fairy tale. The White Cliffs of Dover stand tall and proud, like the bodyguards of Britain. These chalky wonders have guarded this fine land for centuries and a trip to Dover not only treats you to panoramic views of the English Channel but also a chance to explore the historic Dover Castle.

Nature lovers adore The Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a green haven of rolling hills, woodlands and charming villages. It feels like Mother Nature threw a garden party and you are invited! You can lace up those hiking boots, hop on a bike or just bask in the countryside tranquility. If you are looking for beachside bliss, Margate and Broadstairs have sandy shores and a lively arts scene. You should check out the Turner Contemporary gallery in Margate.

Canterbury is a living, breathing medieval postcard with cobbled streets, timber-framed buildings and the River Stour snaking through. Tenterden and Faversham, the market towns, are like stepping into a scene from a quaint British movie. Markets, boutique shops and historic architecture blend together in a beautiful way. Chilham, the village with a Tudor-style square, is practically a movie star. You might have seen it in period dramas, it is that photogenic.

There are plenty of festivals that take place, including The Canterbury Festival of music, theatre and art. The Rochester Dickens Festival offers Victorian-themed events, parades and street performances. It is like stepping into a Dickens novel. Get your taste buds ready for a dance because Kent is the "Garden of England" for a reason. Featuring orchards, hop gardens and vineyards, it is a feast for the senses. You can visit farmers' markets, cider houses and wineries to savour the local delights. Kentish cherries and apples are the celebrities here and you are the VIP guest at their flavour-packed party.

Kent is a whirlwind of history, natural beauty and culture. You will fall head over heels and the memories will linger like the scent of summer roses. So, whether you are storming medieval castles, sauntering through charming towns, lazing on a beach or feasting on oysters in Whitstable, a trip to Kent guarantees an adventure. Cheers to Kent where every moment is a bloomin' good time!

    A wonderful location right next to the beach. A great house with a real sense of fun and luxury.

  • Would go back.

    on 16/11/2018

    This house is brilliant. Eccentrically decorated - gave the house a real wow factor. The massive space downstairs - is brilliant for a large group to hangout in....and lots gadgets to play with. Dymchurch is right there and it’s lovely. We did a 15minute drive to DUNGENESS (a favourite place of mine) Would definitely like to go back. Thank you to the owners Louise and Karl, very friendly and relaxed.

  • The house was perfect

    on 07/11/2018

    What a great weekend with friends. Great location and the sun room was an experiance.

  • 40th Birthday Celebrations.

    on 12/10/2018

    We were absolutely blown away by the house and surroundings! There were 9 of us who stayed here for my 40th birthday and the house was perfect for a group of family or friends this size. Lots of lovely features including a well stocked kitchen, cinema room, LED lighting, music system, pretty garden with koi pond and apple tree. The hosts left a very generous hamper with bread, olives, biscuits and prosecco. The local area is gorgeous and the beach is stunning, there are some great local pubs and we even caught some morris dancing at one of them! Couldn't recommend this place highly enough, absolutely everyone in the group loved it, some treasured memories were made. Thank you so much.

  • A+

    on 03/07/2018

    Great location by the beach. Great experience with the owner. No issues.

  • Party House!

    on 24/08/2017

    We had a lovely weekend at the Beach Retreat -

    Great decor and a quiet little town - sun room was a treat! Music system also great! - Good size kitchen the place was clean and well maintained.
    Very straight forward booking via Olivers and the owners were always on hand for any queries.
    We were 3 couples - ideally I think its suitable for 2 couples and 2 kids - therefore the only snag for us was the bathroom situation - only 2 en suites with no doors only curtains for privacy!
    There is a additional WC but waiting on showers was a little annoying - the upstairs of the property is under construction so hopefully it will all be fully functioning before long.
    All in all a good experience - some lovely restaurants also very close by
