Holiday Cottage in Tunbridge Wells, Kent
from £125 pwSleeps 4
Step out of the door from this self-catering holiday apartment and onto The Upper Pantiles, a historic walk which during the Victorian time was frequented mostly by gentry, with the iconic listed buildings standing the test of time with their striking architecture and gleaming white facades. Today you will find a parade of busy cafes and eateries, offering a cosmopolitan and almost continental feel that you would expect to see in France or Italy. Perfect for a city break and less than forty five minutes away from London.
The apartment itself offers a modern contemporary pad with an African twist with contrasting bright colours, making an exciting space within an otherwise Georginan period building. The apartment is situated wonderfully central with everything you could ask for just outside the door. The grade 2 listed building offers historic features making the most of the light from dramatic sash windows, which look out over the charming town.
Suitably equipped for those spontaneous weekends away, it's also ideal for those visiting for extended stays and business trips. The train station is very nearby making the location wonderful for those coming in from or out of the capital or indeed across Kent.
This self-catering apartment is the perfect bolt hole for those looking to explore the best sides of Kent and similarly a flawless romantic getaway for two anytime of the year.

You will find lots to do in this lovely Georgian spa town, with wonderful restaurants, cafes, small galleries and of course the picturesque Pantiles itself. The shopping is extensive as the town is full of boutiques and individual shops. For the evenings, there are two busy theatres in the town centre and a selection of night clubs and bars. It was established as a spa town in Georgian times and was very popular under Richard (Beau) Nash when the Pantiles and its Chalybeate spring attracted visitors who wanted to try the waters. Today, it is a pleasant place to wander, admire the architecture and visit its antique shops and cafes.
Take a trip out to the surrounding villages where you can find lots of good walks and great pubs for lunch. Groombridge Place is a short drive away, with its wonderful gardens and raised wooden adventure walk through the woods. The giant swings in the Enchanted Woods are a must for any child or adult!
There is a variety of wonderful visitor attractions including Scotney Castle, a National Trust 14th century moated castle, Bodiam Castle, Lewes Castle, Penshurst Place and Hever Castle. Bedgebury Forest and National Park is only a 30 minutes' drive away which is a stunning area of natural beauty, miles of walks and cycling paths, including 'Go Ape,' a hugely fun activity where you can swing through the trees.
Bewl Water is also a half hours drive - known as the largest area of inland water in the South East. If you are a water sports enthusiast, this is the place to visit with lots of activities including sailing, canoeing and wind-surfing. Bowles Outdoor Centre is situated just 10 minutes away where you can learn to rock climb, build rafts and even ski on the 2 dry ski slopes.
Also only 12 miles away is Ashdown Forest. Originally a deer hunting forest in Norman times, Ashdown Forest is now one of the largest free public access spaces in the South East. It is a great place for walking and enjoying spectacular views over the Sussex countryside and is known the world over as the 'home' of Winnie-the-Pooh.
