St Margaret's

The lovely seaside village of St Margaret's is set in the heart of White Cliffs Country. It first appeared in the Domesday Book as "Sancta Margharita" with continuing history revolving around its location.

From late Victorian times it developed as a holiday resort and retreat for the well to do, amongst which Lord Byron, Ian Fleming and Noel Coward all stayed or lived here.

During the Second World War the village was subject to almost daily bombardment and became known as "Hell-fire Corner".

Today the village and Bay offer an inspiring backdrop to spectacular countryside and coastline and to a wide range of activities.

From a luxurious 4 star country house hotel, great Kentish pubs and restaurants, St Margaret's has something for everyone.
