On the South Coast of England, spellbinding cities like Canterbury are hemmed by idyllic countryside on one side, and the crash of waves on the other. Gentle, historic Kent is scattered with famous landmarks such as Leeds Castle, Dover Castle and, of course, the magnificent Canterbury Cathedral with its intricate stained-glass windows.
Elsewhere you’ll find the New Forest, which is actually anything but new, with a history dating back to 1079. This national park is a pocket of seclusion, offering expanses of wilderness amongst easy-going villages. There's also the South Downs National Park which offers rolling hills, ancient woodland, breath-taking views, glorious countryside and iconic cliffs stretching from Hampshire to East Sussex.
What we think
Gareth, Big House Experience
Rolling landscapes, stately cities and lazy beach towns... need we say more? Book a house in Kent where its genteel appeal is timeless and irresistible. Or head to the New Forest. This region of heathland and forest is a serene sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
