Activities/Attractions: Historic houses, castles, gardens, steam railways, boats, farms, vineyards, wild animal parks, museums, lighthouses and lots more means Kent really does have something for everyone, and it is all here for you.

A unique and inspirational region, Canterbury and Coastal Kent has something for everyone.

Stretching along the historical coastline is a wonderful mix of traditional seaside resorts such as Ramsgate & Folkestone with their Regency and Victorian elegance. So why not relax on the beach or stroll along the famous White Cliffs at Dover with their spectacular views across the channel - you can even see France on a clear day!

Or perhaps you'd rather wander inland to explore and discover the hidden towns and picturesque villages set amidst the beautiful scenic East Kent landscape.


"We've stayed in many B&B's but the Harbourside tops them all - so much so that I am quite tempted not write a message so as to keep it a secret! Beautiful rooms; cosy, quiet and tastefully decorated as well as brilliant sea views. The exquisite house and garden are a delight to explore as well as being the perfect place to relax and breakfast was superb. A huge thank you to Ray and Joy for being so welcoming and hopefully will be visiting again soon. Thoroughly recommended."

"Our recent visit was our third time staying at Harbourside. We continue to be impressed by the welcome which we always receive and now Eugene's fried eggs also. Cannot recommend this place enough. We will definitely be back again."

"Thanks for making our stay so special. We spent a lovely weekend in the Degas Suite overlooking the sea, the views were magnificent across the channel. Cannot wait to return. See you soon!"

"This time we were lucky to find a hotel, absolutely one of the best ever when being in the UK, next time I know where to stay."

"Thanks for a wonderful weekend. We don't think we've ever been so spoiled for luxury."

"Spent a lovely week in the Burgundy Suite, constantly spoiled by Joy, Ray, Jackie and Staff. The beautiful view of the harbour from our balcony and the lovely strolls into town made our 30th Anniversary extra special. Can't wait to go back!"
