Emma is happy to share her friendly home. Bedrooms have pretty beds and rugs on painted floors; the huge guest bathroom is gorgeous: freestanding bath, fluffy towels, scented lotions, a jug of flowers. A delicious breakfast with a dish of the day and homemade jam is served in the big, bright kitchen, or outside in the sun. You can settle in the drawing room for a film/dinner night (book beforehand), and there’s another sitting room with heaps of books, open fire and large antique mirrors. Head out for seaside walks, Whitstable Oyster Festival and Faversham with its medieval market place; Canterbury and Margate are a short drive too.
