Walking holidays at Hawthorn Farm

Rolling countryside, clifftops and beaches, stunning views and miles of footpaths to explore... Grab your walking boots, maps and compasses and come and see for yourself why this part of Kent is a favourite for enjoying a walking or rambling holiday!

Beautiful cottage overlooking grassed area. We took our black Labrador with us who settled in very well and enjoyed her daily walks along the footpaths nearby, taking us across farmland to the river. There were some lovely views across the marshes. The accommodation was spotless and was a lovely place to relax. Hoppickers, August 2015
