Self Catering Kent. Self Catering Rye, Self Catering Holiday Cottage Tenterden. Kent Castles - It was in Kent that Julius Caesar landed in 55 BC and uttered the immortal line: "I came, I saw, I conquered". William the Conqueror and Napoleon passed this way too. And it was in these skies that the critical Battle of Britain was waged. Kent's most outstanding military sites are linked to fortified towns in France and Belgium through the Historic Fortifications Network. The same Kent shores also witnessed the arrival of St Augustine in 597 AD to reclaim England for Christianity. Canterbury, the seat of Christianity, now draws up to 1.5 million visitors to its Cathedral every year.
Many royal visitors have made their mark in the area too, including King Henry VIII who met Anne of Cleves here for the first time. The king's fruiterer planted the first apple and cherry trees in Teynham, establishing Kent's reputation as the 'Garden of England'.
"By far the most civilised are those who inhabit Cantium (Kent)", or so Julius Caesar said. And he must have been right, because for centuries the great and the good have made Kent their home, leaving a rich heritage of grand houses and castles, more than anywhere else in England. There's imposing Dover Castle, with its Secret Wartime Tunnels from which the Dunkirk evacuation was masterminded during World War II. Romantic Leeds Castle was the home of six medieval queens and more recently, a very wealthy American heiress. Then there's 13th century Hever Castle, childhood home of Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII's second wife.
For self catering accommodation in Kent. There are remarkable houses and stately homes too, from the magnificent Penshurst Place to Chartwell, the retreat of Sir Winston Churchill.
The famous and the infamous have all left their impression on this fascinating area. Leave no stone unturned as there's a story and a famous name around every corner Kent Gardens
Dazzling colours, seductive scents, superb seasonal shows – Kent’s gardens are rightly world renowned. And with 180-plus to choose from, there’s one to match your every mood and interest: grand and historic, exotic and informal, innovative vistas in the making like the World Garden of Plants.
Drift with spring bluebells at Emmetts, ramble with summer roses at Sissinghurst, kindle dreams with autumn colour at resplendent Scotney Castle. Excite or soothe your senses on a genuinely revitalising escape (and pick up brilliant ideas for your own garden from celebrated designers across the ages).
The gardens at Mount Ephraim offer an enchanting mix of styles, including a Japanese rock garden. At Yalding Organic Gardens, fourteen delightful garden 'rooms' allow you to trace the history of English gardening from medieval times to the present. Follow in the footsteps of Jane Austen in the fourteen acres of grounds at Goodnestone Park or marvel at the National Pine collection at Bedgebury Pinetum.
Deep breath and relax as you follow your nose around aromatic displays of 150-plus lavenders and 30 types of rosemary at Downderry Nursery, Hadlow. Sensational.

Vineyards and breweries
Kent’s fertile soil provides just the right conditions for plants and fruit to flourish, hence the county’s fame for orchards, hops and vineyards – and Kent is leading the way in the renaissance of English wines. Tours, tips and tastings make for memorable days out.
For a scenic day out, tour the mid-Kent and Low Weald ‘fruit belts’, then investigate how apples turn into liquid sunshine – Kentish ciders and apple juice – at Biddenden Vineyards and Cider Works. It’s Kent’s oldest commercial vineyard and a tranquil place to walk amid 22 acres of vines.
Tours and tastings are also scrumptious fun at Chapel Down Winery, Tenterden, and Lamberhurst Vineyard, near Tunbridge Wells, both leaders in the recent renaissance of English still and sparkling wines. They each have bistros and The Swan gastro pub is on the edge of Lamberhurst’s vineyard, perfect for a leisurely meal.
Work up a thirst with a visit to Britain’s oldest brewer, Shepherd Neame. A tour of the brewery in the market town of Faversham reveals the process ‘from hop to hand-pump and barley to bottle’.
