Indeed, more than one-third of the county has been deemed an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Rolling countryside, sandy beaches and dense woodland can all be enjoyed here, as well as a happy number of vineyards. Whether you're considering a seaside break, a countryside retreat or a fishing holiday in Kent, you'll find plenty to keep you busy in this charming part of south-eastern England.
In addition to the county's array of dog-friendly pubs, sleepy coastal towns and distinctive oast houses, visitors can discover impressive sights such as the dramatic White Cliffs of Dover, Leeds Castle and Canterbury Cathedral. With one of the most popular coastlines in the British Isles, seaside towns and villages such as Margate, Whitstable and the Cinque Ports of Hythe and Rye are much-loved destinations. For those planning a short break in Kent, cottages, pet-friendly holiday homes, and superb hotels are available in abundance.
Be sure to try the local specialities on your holidays in Kent.
These include huffkins, bread rolls with a hole usually filled with jam and Kentish Blue, a blue cheese matured for three months.
Those with a sweet tooth will want to look out for gypsy tart, a traditional Kentish pudding made with shortcrust pastry and filled with evaporated milk and muscovado sugar.
English wine has become increasingly popular in recent years, and the vineyards of Kent have proved particularly fruitful.
One of the most noted is Terlingham Vineyard near Folkestone, which offers tours and tasting sessions of its sustainable vintages.
