White Cliffs Country has amazing venues to reconnect with the people who are special to you
Sensory indulgence: you’ve missed the novelty of being somewhere new - new sights, sounds and stimuli and the joy of experiencing them in companionship with the people who are most important to you. Come to White Cliffs Country and experience sensory indulgence with our rejuvenating fresh sea air, the sound of seabirds, salt spray on the cliffs, pebbles crunching underfoot, birdsong outside your window, bees buzzing around wildflowers, sheep and cattle from nearby farmland, ancient history on your doorstep. From the coastal paths of the White Cliffs of Dover; to the historical “smugglers’ town” in Deal and foodies' paradise with bespoke bistros and delis; to the perfectly-preserved medieval oasis at Sandwich and birthplace of the Roman empire in Britain at neighbouring Richborough - your imagination will go wild as you feed your soul and awaken your senses in the company of friends and family.
Holiday with your pets: over the past year, more people than ever have been discovering the joy of owning pets and in particular, of having a pet dog. Have you found a new four-legged best friend?
