places to stay in Kent
Luxury treats, unique sleeps, money-wise comfort...
From holiday cottages on grand country estates, to bright n' breezy seaside B&Bs, the sheer variety on offer is astounding. Spa breaks, luxury hotels and boutique sleep spots are everywhere - perfect for a weekend away. Highlights include Eastwell Manor near Ashford; the Abode in Canterbury, Chilston Park part of Hand Picked Hotels near Maidstone; Dover's Walletts Court and The Marquis; The Lodge at Prince's Golf Club; Rowhill Grange near Dartford; the Hotel du Vin and Spa Hotel in Royal Tunbridge Wells… the list goes on (see "hotels").
And then there’s the comfort and convenience of superb-value, recognized chains: hotels belonging to Hilton, Holiday Inn, Marriott and Ramada dot the county (see "hotels"). While a wealth of cosy inns run by Kent’s historic brewer, Shepherd Neame, provide still more options (see "pubs"). Meanwhile self-catering gems abound; top agencies include Mulberry Cottages and Freedom Holiday Homes (see "self-catering").
There are some real rarities too. You can sleep in converted oast houses, lighthouses and fishermen's huts. Kip in a sea-view tipi on top of Dover's White Cliffs. Drop off in Leeds Castle's 16th century Maiden's Tower. Slumber inside the gorgeous grounds of Canterbury Cathedral, in the Canterbury Cathedral Lodge. Bed down near the racing circuit at Thistle Brands Hatch or beside lions, elephants and gorillas at Port Lympne's Livingstone Lodge (see "something different").
