Margate & The Kent Coast

Margate & The Kent Coast

Based at the Smiths Court Hotel




5 DAYS FROM £330


Kent has 350 glorious miles of coastline including more blue flag beaches than any other county in England. Lying at the peninsula of the ‘Garden of England’ the traditional holiday resort of Margate has a vintage feel with its cool café culture, tempting retro shops and Dreamland – the lovingly restored amusement park with the UK’s oldest wooden roller coaster, grade II listed scenic railway and wedgwood tea cup ride! Just to the east of Margate, Cliftonville’s long sandy beach has been a popular holiday destination since the Victorian’s first took to sea bathing – indeed the first covered bathing machines were introduced here.


Our base on the clifftop in Cliftonville is the family run SMITHS COURT HOTEL which enjoys stunning sea views and is within a short stroll of sandy beaches and Margate Old Town. Features of the hotel include a restaurant, lounge and bar where there will be entertainment on two evenings during our stay. All of the well furnished en suite bedrooms have tv, ironing board, hairdryer and hospitality tray. A passenger lift serves all floors but please note there are steps to access some bedrooms.


Departing Newark we principally utilise the motorway system to travel southwards making an extended break in Faversham - the oldest market town in Kent. Mentioned in the Domesday Book, Faversham has over 300 listed buildings along with an array of independent shops and cafés. We then continue to our base in Cliftonville.
