  The Detail...

Within easy reach of Canterbury and Whitstable, A Secret Garden really is a special discovery. You can get away from everything and everyone at this made-for-two adults-only hideaway complete with outdoor hot tub.

A Secret Garden offers something a little different down in East Kent. You wont find a TV or superfast Wi-Fi this place is about being together and escaping modern life. Its all kept warm and cosy inside with a wood-burning stove and underfloor heating, while your king-size bed with pocket-sprung mattress enjoys views of the stars through the glass roof.

With a barbecue, a gas cooker and fridge freezer, you have the facilities to cook up breakfast, lunch or dinner the table and chairs in the secluded garden makes the perfect spot to enjoy it. If you would rather dine out, the local pub is just five minutes walk away.

Compact but well thought out, the accommodation also features a wood-panelled shower room with flush toilet. There is even a surprising amount of storage space for your bits and pieces. The wooden hot tub is a real treat, so dont miss out on a dip beneath the night sky. Bathrobes and towels are provided too.

A Secret Garden has parking for one car, and you are well-positioned to go and explore some of Kents most popular destinations. The university city of Canterbury always has something going on, whether its live theatre at the Marlowe or the Gulbenkian, festivals or craft markets.

There is no shortage of restaurants, bars and old-school pubs, and the city centre sees plenty of intriguing independents rubbing shoulders with big-name stores and, of course, Canterbury Cathedral. A number of pretty villages can be found to the east of the city, with the timeless town of Sandwich lying just beyond.

A visit to Whitstable will show why it has become such a favourite in recent years. Full of seaside charm, this easy-going town has a varied dining scene and hosts the annual Oyster Festival each summer.

"What a magical hobbit house! We visited as a birthday treat and were very pleasantly surprised with how amazing the place was. Beautifully decorated, incredible hot tub (that was steaming hot when we arrived!) a luxury hamper and bottle of prosessco in the fridge. Would highly recommend for a fun night away."
