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!

Reviews

  • Absolutely amazing!

    on 26/09/2022

    My husband, our dog, and I thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful space and the surrounding area. As others have said, the space is exactly as advertised, if not better. The flat is immaculate, and the hosts were impressive in terms of responsiveness both in preparation for our arrival, upon our arrival, and in their availability to answer any questions during our stay.

    The hosts shared their combined knowledge and love of the area and local venues, which - as this was our first venture to this part of the UK - facilitated our enjoyment of some of the best the area has to offer, while also taking time to just relax in the sun on the terrace or on the beach directly in front of the property.

    I also have to give a shout-out to how 'dog friendly' this space is. The hosts welcome dogs wholeheartedly and enthusiastically. As an example, when we arrived, we found a dog bed and bowls for food and water for our four legged, in addition to some special treats just for her. Also, and as many dog owners will appreciate, the beach in front of the house is dog-friendly and it seemed that more people than not had their own pooch with them as they strolled or ran along the Coast Path that is situated between the property and the beachfront.

    We spent two weeks here and this place was exactly what we needed. Thank you!!

  • We felt very welcome

    on 25/08/2022

    We are on our way home from an absolutely stunning few days in this home. The photos are gorgeous but it’s even better when you get there, we explored quiet a lot and all agreed that the beach outside the house is by far the best, waking up to the view every morning is wonderful snd then so peaceful falling asleep to the waves. The host is brilliant; you can feel the love she’s has put into the home and has such great knowledge of the area. We felt very welcome!

  • Perfect

    on 21/06/2022

    Lovely, thoughtfully-furnished and comfortable apartment. Right on the beach with stunning sea views. Perfect for a refreshing break.

  • A beautiful property!

    on 10/05/2022

    Had the most wonderful and relaxing stay. The host made sure everything was perfect for our arrival. Extra effort was made to make it feel like a luxury stay with special little touches. Beautifully presented and clean.
    The property is beautiful and you have a beautiful sea view all day and the sunsets are amazing.
    Great tips given by the host for activities to do during our stay including The Radnors Arms which is fabulous for a Sunday roast! Highly recommend a getaway here.
