Kingsdown Holiday Homes

South East England has some of the most stunning and welcoming beaches for your Kent seaside and beach holiday experience. There is a mixture of sand and shingle beaches which are family friendly or perfect for quieter times. Here is a selection of some of the best.

What better way to start your beach holiday than Kingsdown's very own offering. Kingsdown Park has its own private beach and beyond this, the expanse of pebbles stretch as far as your eye into the horizon.

 

Peppered with traditional fishing boats, huts and houses, set against a backdrop hinting of the White Cliffs of Dover, you're bound to find something of interest if not the sea itself. For those seeking rest and refreshment, The Rising Sun and Zetland Arms are just some of the hostelries on offer.

 

Cyclists can ride unhindered on the parallel road through to Walmer and Deal, and the magnificent Walmer Castle and Gardens within easy walk too, a visit to the home of Wellington and Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports is well worth it.
