Why stay here

Come and find us in the middle Kent’s luscious ‘green garden’, surrounded by quiet countryside and open farmland in the town of Densole. This is a perfect retreat for exploring the great outdoors and an excellent base for getting to Canterbury or Dover.

In less than 30 minutes by car, you could be in the heart of historic Canterbury, famed for its legendary Canterbury Tales. The medieval castle of Dover, Port Lympne Wild Animal Park and the Battle of Britain Museum, Eurotunnel at Folkestone and Dover Ferry port are all too no more than a 35 minute drive away.

Family days out

Dover Castle is a 10 mile drive to the coast and a great place to explore with the kids. From secret tunnels to breezy towers, there’s plenty to discover and lots space to play or set up a picnic.

Travel equal distance in the opposite direction and you’ll find Lympne Wildlife Park. You’ll be taken on a safari experience through the animal enclosures past rhinos, giraffes and tigers - there's even a dinosaur forest waiting to be explored.

Sunny Sands Beach is less than five miles from us and has golden sand and cafes, pubs and toilets along the promenade – perfect for family trips to the seaside.

Activities & experiences nearby


Cycling

Within a 5 mile radius is the Folkestone Downs, Creteway Down and Folkestone Warren which are important areas for natural wildlife and offer fantastic views. These are located in between the Regional Cycle Route ‘17’ the National Cycle Route ‘2’ (The Chalk and Channel Way). View the Sustrans route map.

For a coastal route, head to Margate for the Viking Coastal Trail that runs south to the sandy, cliff-lined shores of Pegwell Bay.


Walking

Next to our local pub is Reinden Wood with a circular trail that’s ideal for walking and running, and carpeted with bluebells in May. Continue south 2 miles towards the Folkestone Downs and if you want to head out across the open hills.

The white cliffs and rugged coastal pathways are the best for walking and fossil hunting. Enjoy vast, panoramic views from East Cliff and Warren Country Park or continue west to The Leas for pretty coastal walks.


Things to try

Have a go at climbing high with Go Ape at Leeds Castle, a treetop adventure playground that’s less than 45 minutes away by car. Nearer to us is Go Ballistic paintball grounds as well as Folkestone Sports Centre that offers dry slope skiing and ‘footgolf’ - if the rain spoils your fun, the centre also has a pool, gym and wellness centre to relax in.

On the coast, there are lots of activities to do, such as hitching a ride on a sea safari. If that doesn’t float your boat, head into town and find Mudpie Folkestone. They hold a weekly evening BYOB pottery painting class and by day they run family workshops, including teddy bear building and foam clay fun.


Pubs and restaurants

The local pub, the Black Horse Inn is friendly, has an open fire and is conveniently close (about 100m from the front gate). From our gate, turn left to Folkestone Garden Centre which serves tasty cooked breakfasts.

In Folkestone, there are a number of cafes, pubs and restaurants to try. Anna’s is a little tea house that serves up fresh, artisan foods, cooked lunches, cream teas and homemade cakes. Into the evening, you might want to visit The Chambers - a fabulous Mexican pub/café that holds regular live music nights.
