Whatever the occasion we have an incredible Big Cottage for you
Nestled on the south-eastern coast, Kent has well and truly earned its unofficial title as the ‘Garden of England’. With acres of stunning countryside, miles of golden sandy beaches and an abundance of historical sites, Kent is an experience you won’t forget in a hurry.
Looking for the perfect holiday cottage on the Kent coast? Perhaps you’re heading on a long getaway with the whole family? Whatever your holiday needs, kate & tom’s can help, with a wide range of holiday homes in Kent.
Housing the main crossing point over to France, Kent has a deep, rich history, with several castles built to protect England from invasions. Discover 900 years of history at Leeds Castle which was both a Norman stronghold and a palace for Henry VIII. Or explore one of the most iconic English fortresses, Dover Castle, which has protected the country for 9 centuries. Delve inside Dover’s nearby white cliffs to experience the Secret Wartime Tunnels, offering an insight into even more of Kent’s fascinating history.
If the wartime castles leave you searching for more cultural and historical gems, Kent has you covered. Transport yourself back in time with a visit to St Augustine’s Abbey, the ruins of a Saxon church from 597 AD. Or, for a grander taste of England’s religious history, you can explore an extravagant Normal-built place of worship at Canterbury Cathedral.
Kent didn’t earn its nickname for nothing. Its glorious beaches, impressive natural parks and iconic chalky cliffs paint a picture of pure tranquillity. Botany Bay is one of the best locations to take in the stunning views of the cliffs and chalk stacks, complete with an abundance of rock pools for kids to play in.
One of the most beautiful, unique spots in Kent is the unexplained Shell Grotto. The ornate subterranean network of shell-lined passages will leave you awe-struck with its stunning mosaic chamber. For another inspiring taste of history, wander the Pilgrims’ Way, an historical route taken by pilgrims from Winchester to Thomas Becket’s shrine in Canterbury.
Family escape, couples retreat, hen or stag party weekend or even your dream wedding – kate & tom’s have the perfect Kent rental for every occasion. Huffkins, Gypsy Tarts, Canterbury Pudding and even the humble sandwich, Kent is the birthplace of so many of England’s favourite foods. So, you can stock up the fridge and cupboards in your self-catering cottage and take some of your most-loved treats home with you.
Head south in the summer and make the most of the glorious English sun at a holiday cottage on the Kent coast, complete with golden sands and clear blue seas. Or, visit Kent in the winter and warm up indoors with heated flooring and a hot tub. Go on, treat yourself!
