We have selected an eclectic mix of retreats for a relaxing weekend in Kent. From spa hotels to cabins looking over the water, there is something for everyone

The Luxury Spa Hotel

Rowhill Grange Hotel and Utopia Spa is a luxurious boutique hotel with modern and stylish interiors and essential amenities for the technology-dependent among us. The Utopia Spa is inspired by Roman baths and the stunning designs and the lavish treatments are sure to leave you feeling calm and pampered.

The Modern Beach Hotel

With the beach literally metres away, the calming waves will be the background music to your stay at Sands Hotel in Margate. There are chic interiors with nods to the nautical, a modern restaurant bar serving delicious food, local beers and a good selection of wines and tasteful, comfortable rooms for you to relax in.

The City Break

Conveniently located in the city of Canterbury is the Canterbury Hotel, a stylishly decorated hotel providing the perfect accommodation after a day of wandering in the ancient city. If you find yourself fatigued by your day out, you can finish it off with a rejuvenating visit to the indoor pool or a relaxing drink in the bar.

The Cabin Escape

This is one for the adventure seekers, Vanellus, a two person cabin situated in the picturesque Elmley National Nature Reserve and with views from the bed over the vast and stunning landscape, you will feel the therapeutic effects of being immersed in nature. With tiny but rustic and stylish interiors, this is one step away from sleeping under the stars.

The Glamping Experience

In this age of technology and luxury, it’s not surprising that ‘glamping’ has become such a trend; taking the core idea of camping but adding beds with clean sheets, proper toilets, hot showers and room to move. Why didn’t someone think of this before? Little Halden Farm has large yurts that sleep 4 – 6 people, a safari tent that sleeps 6 and classic camping during the summer months.

The Cliffside Spa Retreat

The Grade II listed Wallett’s Court is steeped in history, originally dating back to the 15th century. There are historic hints in all of the rooms which will make you feel like you are in an episode of Downton Abbey. Located in White Cliffs Country, the dramatic Kentish scenery adds to the allure and mystery of this wonderful hotel.

The Countryside Bed and Breakfast

This beautifully renovated 15th century farmhouse is perfect for walkers who want a long ramble in the Kent countryside. Located in the North Downs, the chocolate box views surrounding Bulltown Farmhouse Bed & Breakfast are panoramic making it the perfect for a secluded getaway from modern life. Enjoy farm life as it should be.

The Historic Village Bed and Breakfast

Located in an area of outstanding beauty on the edge of the village of Doddington is The Old Vicarage. The bed and breakfast is housed in a Grade II listed building that is a balance between old and new, mixing modern amenities with stunning period features. Nestled in the Kent countryside, you will feel the stress drop off with every passing moment.
