Beach Cottages

Although Dover is internationally renowned for its iconic white cliffs, there is more to this lovely cosmopolitan town than this chalky sediment. The town is well known for its exchange of folk from the continent and the UK, something that has been going on here since the beginning of time and the town reflects this in every way. It is also the gateway to one of the most dramatic coastlines and fascinating counties in the UK. You'll be surprised at how many historic sites there are in this area, including Roman remains, various castles, landmarks, fossil grounds and museums. And Kent is known as the garden of England due to its many beautiful gardens and parks, which are filled with fascinating wildlife.


The local beaches offer a variety of pebbles and shingle but there is a sandy beach nearby called Sunny Sands that is perfect for kids. Dover's beach can be accessed by climbing down the white cliffs, so maybe a bit tricky for the less nimble. The highlight has to be a tour of these shores on a boat trip, as it gives you an unforgettable perspective on the monument that marks the entry to this remarkable land. The self-catering holiday cottages in Dover listed here include family friendly cottages that are child friendly and can be booked with the property manager or owner direct.
