Out & About

Discover places to see and things to do whilst in and around Sandwich Bay, Kent to truly enhance your stay come rain or shine!

Sandwich The picturesque Tudor town of Sandwich is two miles away and has a rich cultural heritage as one of the Cinque Ports. It has lots to see and do including an independent cinema, delicatessen and grocers, and many events in the town centre throughout the year.  

History and Architecture Canterbury has the perfect blend of city, coast and countryside, ensuring that however varied your interests are, you will be spoiled for choice. Don't miss the historic cathedral (the oldest in England) and numerous other examples of stunning architecture, all of which can be admired from a punting tour of the city.

On the Water Top windsurfing locations include Minnis Bay and Whitstable - conditions are so good a world speed record was even set there! Kent's calmer coastal and inland waters are ideal for kayaking and canoeing. Aficionados paddle the three spectacular routes that set out from both Sandgate and Sandwich Bay, or make for St Margaret's to glide below Kent's remarkable White Cliffs. 

Wonderful Whitstable This unique self-catering holiday property is just 40 minutes from Whitstable. Its narrow streets, excellent eateries, quirky shops, art galleries and museums all make this seaside town definitely worth a visit!

Parlez-vous français? Wonderlands is just nine miles from Dover and with a 40 minutes crossing time, the Calais ferry is a quick and enjoyable way to hit the land of love. What better way to enhance your UK holiday than with a day tripper to France to pick up some of their delectable delicacies or enjoy a lazy lunch French style?

Wine Time! Why not visit England’s leading wine producers at Chapel Down and take a guided tour of the famous vineyard and winery. The expert guides will teach you all you need to know about the history of English wine and the traditional methods of sparkling wine production, not to mention a tutored ‘tasting’ of the award winning delights!

Nearest Beach Sandwich Bay is right on your doorstep!



The kitchen makes a welcome space for cooking and cavorting indoors. Beautifully fitted and well-equipped, the kitchen in the main house offers guests a British made Falcon Range with two fan ovens, grill and five gas burners. The Butlery and The Restoratory each have their own fully-equipped self-catering facilities. The large farmhouse table seats all guests for a button-bursting holiday feast.

In-House Cuisine

If you'd rather spend your break indulging in the little luxuries, let an in-house chef prepare a mouth-watering meal for you and your party (on prior request and subject to an additional cost). 

Eating Out

Nearby trendy Whitstable is famous for its restaurants so there's lots to choose from (especially if oysters are your thing!). There are lots of gastro pubs to choose from such as The Dove at Dargate and Michelin-starred The Sportsman at Seasalter.
