The Kent Downs has just been highly commended as best destination globally at the recent Virgin Holidays Responsible Tourism Awards 2009. It was beaten by South Africa’s Table Mountain so our home grown countryside continues to top the awards. With 600 areas nominated this is a huge achievement.
The Kent Downs stretch from Rochester in the North of the county to Folkestone in the south and offer wonderful walks, unspoilt villages and beautiful rolling countryside. Whatever the time of year this is a stunning part of England to visit with small villages and hamlets dotted in unspoilt valleys just waiting to be explored. It is difficult to believe that the area is only about 60 miles from central London. Mulberry Cottages have a good range of pretty country cottages in wonderfully unspoilt positions just waiting for you to sample and explore the area.
