They don’t call Kent the ‘Garden of England’ for nothing. This beautiful county has all the ingredients needed as the perfect spot for a holiday home.  

As practical as it is beautiful, the rolling countryside, picture-perfect scenery and fun-filled coastline have brilliant transport connections to London and South East England. Before we take you through the reasons to buy a static caravan in Kent, let’s hear from some of our Kent owners.

Paul Camies, one of our Kent Coast owners, sums things up: ''It feels great; part of a wider work/life balance. It feels good to be able to spend so much time at the park meeting friends. Kent Coast has a real community spirit.''

Mr Palmer says: ‘‘We feel part of a friendly community, and there’s always lots to do for all ages. We’re lucky to have a new happy lifestyle.’’

Becoming a Haven homeowner in Kent means you’ll be unlocking one of the county’s most underrated areas. The Hoo peninsula is a magnificent rural paradise on Kent’s north border, meeting the Thames Estuary magnificently and creating the perfect place for an escape from the hustle and bustle at our Kent Coast Holiday Park. 

We’ve invested millions in this place to make it not only one of the best parks in the UK for holidaymakers, but one where you’ll love spending as much time as possible as an owner.

2. A peaceful place with convenience thrown in

The Hoo peninsula may be one of Kent’s most rural and untouched areas, but that doesn’t mean it’s not convenient distance of everything needed to live comfortably on a day-to-day basis. A short drive gets you all the things we’ve come to expect at home and on holiday.

3. A tight-knit community in Kent

Allhallows is just one of a number of picturesque villages on the Hoo peninsula, each marked by pubs, restaurants and village halls that are the lifeblood of the communities they serve. There are clubs to get involved in on and off park, with days out laid on throughout the year for you and your fellow owners. You’ll not only be adding something priceless to your lifestyle, but you’ll be making new friends along the way too. 

Allhallows Golf Club is a great place for a round or two with old and new friends, and the surroundings are simply perfect for a walk, run or cycle with the loved ones. 

4. A breath of fresh air every time

Kent Coast's position on the Hoo peninsula is one of the most scenic spots in Kent. Imagine having a place of your own just a few steps from the sea, sitting amongst greenery that perfectly showcases why Kent is called the Garden of England. You’d be forgiven for forgetting just how close to London you are here, and there’s always a way to make the most of the breath of fresh air. 

Take the dog for a stroll up to Monika’s Beach, head west along the Dagnam Saltings to Coombe Point or head inland through the countryside. 

5. Loads of events for the loved ones
