With extensive rugged shorelines bathed by azure Atlantic waters, the county of Kent is not only a gorgeous destination to explore as a family but also a wonderful region with beautiful beaches, a wild coastal landscape and a myriad of towns full of magnificent architecture. Known as the garden of England, Kent’s many orchards yield excellent local produce that will make having your own kitchen at your disposal in your holiday apartment really worth your while. This quintessentially English county is not only home to welcoming local people and great hiking trails. The offer is endless, with cities such as Canterbury where you can lose yourself amidst magnificent medieval architecture and independent shops and cafes, quaint Hythe with its steam railway and large stretch of beach, or day trips to London, France and Belgium with your nearest and dearest.
Renting holiday accommodation in Kent
Travellers who want to escape the bustling crowds of Canterbury or Ashford will find that a holiday rental is the more convenient option to enjoy the best that the county has to offer away from the noisy crowds found in hotels.

Where to stay in Kent
If you want to wake up every morning to the sound of rolling waves your best bet is to rent a holiday townhouse with views to the North Sea along the coast of Folkstone. Do you fancy indulging in some rural tourism instead? You will find a myriad of stunning holiday farmhouses and stone cottages with thatched roofs where you can enjoy your own private garden after a long day out and about for the price of a hotel room. A holiday rental is perfect if you are seeking to experience an authentic trip where you can chat to the amiable locals and discover their top tips to explore the best that Kent has to offer whilst staying away from the bustling crowds. Only they can tell you where to find the finest gastro pubs to sample some mouth-watering delicacies or perhaps share some of the local recipes that you can recreate in your very own kitchen with fresh produce bought at the farmers’ market.
Kent with the family
Children will love to explore Riverhill Himalayan Gardens near Sevenoaks, a stunning listed garden with plenty of activities to enjoy as a family, or perhaps they might prefer to go to Howletts Wild Animal Park to spend a day amongst tigers and elephants. If it rains head towards Penshurst Place, a fortified Tudor manor house, or to Hever Castle, Anne Boleyn’s childhood home. If you prefer a bit continental flavour take a day trip to Lille, a gorgeous French city home to magnificent architecture and plenty of romantic hidden corners to explore.
