Five days on the Kentish coast suited us very well, especially staying in the Greenhouse Apartment at Walmer Castle.
Rather pricey, but worth saving up for a bit of a treat - of particular note is the fact that you get to enjoy the extensive gardens out of hours. We felt hugely priviledged to do so, as if we lived in the castle itself!
The sunny and warm weather made for glorious walks at Sandwich and St Margaret's, as well as along the coast to Deal and the other way to Kingsdown. I even dipped in the sea one evening, quite a surprise to find myself doing that in October (and warmer than it was in Devon last month!).
