With its range of stunning landscapes, Kent truly does live up to its nickname the ‘Garden of England’. From the iconic white cliffs of Dover and wonderful woodlands of the Kent Downs, to historic castles and charming seaside towns, there is an abundance of things to see and do in this county. If you love the outdoors but aren’t so keen on leaving your home comforts, then glamping is a great way to enjoy the best of both worlds. Here are some fantastic glamping sites in Kent.
