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.
