The Gate House, Dover

This historic cottage sleeps two plus two. A pub and shops may be found within half a mile.

This area of East Kent has a host of places to visit and things to do.

 

First to mention are the world-famous White Cliffs. Then there are Dover Castle, Walmer Castle and Deal Castle - all beautifully preserved.

 

For historic towns visit Sandwich, with its narrow medieval streets and plentiful cafes, or Canterbury with its cathedral, theatre, restaurants and shops.

 

If you like the seaside, Broadstairs has numerous sandy bays while Ramsgate and Folkestone boast pretty harbours.

 

And, for some, the stay would only be complete with a cross-Channel trip by ferry or tunnel.
