Garden of England


Long nicknamed the ‘Garden of England’, Kent really does have a lush and green countryside just waiting to be explored from the comfort of your B&B. Take a walk along the Saxon shoreline of the Swale estuary, looking out for the different species of waders and waterbirds that live here or call in on their migration path.

star Cheap Accommodation in Kent

When the summer sun sizzles, head to the beaches of Folkestone and Sandgate. Kent is said to be the United Kingdom’s warmest county so make the most of it with a family-friendly bucket and spade holiday. Both locations are packed with budget accommodation including hotels and B&Bs.

Lovers of history will find plenty to explore within the walls of the medieval castle at Dover or the elegant Leeds Castle, sitting in its moat. Days out for the family should take in the newly revitalised Dreamland at Margate and the Howletts Wild Animal Park while dedicated shoppers can spend a few hours browsing the shops of Bluewater near Dartford. Near every tourist attraction in England’s county of Kent can be found a budget bed and breakfast or a cheap hotel with family-size rooms.

Where to stay in Kent UK


From the half-timbered houses of historic Ightham village, some of which are home to quaint B&Bs through typical England towns like Tenterden to the county’s capital, Canterbury, you’ll find no shortage of holiday accommodation in the county. Discover cheap hotels or a bed and breakfast serving up a hearty start to the day. Some of the most popular visitor hotspots are

Canterbury

Whatever your budget, you’ll find accommodation to match it in Canterbury. With its cobbled streets and historic buildings, the town is typical of England while plenty of cheap hotels or homes offering bed and breakfast can be found in the centre near Canterbury Cathedral. Stretch the budget further by visiting out of season and staying in cheap hotels or B&Bs while you enjoy the Canterbury Festival in October.

Whitstable

Home to the British oyster, Whitstable has a real Dickensian charm backed up by the budget accommodation that can be found in old converted fishing shacks and Victorian townhouses. Many places offer bed and breakfast while a selection of cheap hotels can be found in the area. The town’s B&Bs fill up during the summer Oyster Festival.

Faversham

Faversham is a charming blend of the nautical with a market town. Its market is the oldest in the country and full of Garden of England produce. Faversham has over 500 listed buildings many of which are now budget B&Bs or other holiday accommodation.

Margate

Margate is one place that is definitely brimming with cheap accommodation including bed and breakfasts. In recent years this traditional seaside resort has seen a revamp with the opening of the seafront Turner Contemporary Gallery and the reopening of Dreamland. For family-friendly hotels and good value B&Bs with all the fun of the seaside on the doorstep, Margate is a real Kent winner. A few cheap chain hotels offering bed and breakfast can also be found in and around the town.

Folkestone

Another resort town that has seen recent regeneration is Folkestone and it is now home to accommodation that ranges from a romantic bed and breakfast to cheap hotels with family rooms and budget prices. History, art galleries, kid-size fun and an amazing beach draw families back to its B&Bs and hotels year after year. For history lovers, not far from the town is the poignant Battle of Britain memorial with its sweeping views across the Channel and Kent countryside.
