We are a real get-away location, truly rural yet also within a stone’s throw of so very much to do. Our nearby East Kent coast is a mecca for tourists. The irresistible draw of St.Margarets Bay, Walmer, Kingsdown and Sandwich Bay has resulted in growing numbers of visitors flocking to this little-known corner of our country to discover all that it has to offer. Golf fans wishing to test their skills over the links of Royal St.Georges (2020 Open Championship venue), Princes, with its inspired 27 hole set up and Royal Cinque Ports are spoiled here too with such a cluster of world-class golf courses right on our doorstep (see VIP golf).
