It was our first wedding anniversary and we wanted to do something nice. Just a short getaway without our little one, but not too far that 2 days felt sufficient.
We hadn’t been to Kent before, well Leeds Castle. However, that was just the day. There is so much more to see in Kent. Known largely as the Garden of England.
“Kent, has been referred to as The Garden of England for hundreds of years. With its spectacular coastline views and White Cliffs of Dover; possibly better known to those arriving in the UK by ferry, it’s no surprise that this is a sought-after location, home to 1,524,700 residents. Kent’s rolling green hills and beautiful scenery blend in with the many historic buildings and points of interest it boasts to tourists and residents alike giving it an enormous amount of reasons to visit.“Travel About Britain
We had looked around and finally settled on the quite magnificent Apple Tree Corner on AirBnB. A lovely 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom self contained unit. Not to mention the fully equipped kitchen and lounge area. The photos you will find on AirBnb along with the ones we have taken really do not do this place justice.
Hosts Julia and Richard are great, we didn’t get to meet Julia but Richard was there when we arrived. Welcomed us and showed us around the unit (which is an extension of their beautiful home).
You do have a inter connecting door to the main house, but this is locked from both your side and the hosts so there is no chance of them entering uninvited. The main selling point for us was the rolltop bath. Richard was all too pleased to show us, explaining that this is the reason for so many of their bookings.
You will certainly need a car to stay here, or at the very least the means to get here using public transport. Although the listing slates Canterbury, you are a good 15 minutes drive away. Which was fine for us having a car.
We had two wonderful nights stay here back in March this year. Unfortunately, we didn’t get the chance to see Richard on our departure. However, if we were to stay in Kent again we would look to book here in a heartbeat.
