The olive Grove garden, outdoor eating area

The prefect holiday location in the heart of Kent


Are you looking for somewhere special to spend some quality time away with friends and family?

Royal Retreat is an exclusive collection of two large and luxurious holiday cottages in Woodnesborough near Sandwich in Kent.

Surrounded by beautiful countryside and just a 20-minute drive to the coast, both Birnam and The Olive Grove really do provide an idyllic rural retreat.

You’ll find both exquisite holiday properties have your every need catered for. With stylish and elegant interiors set in extensive secluded grounds, there’s plenty of space for everyone. Whether you want to enjoy social time together or spend some quiet time apart, simply relaxing.

Both Birnam and The Olive Grove have their own pool spa and hot tub plus there’s a private gym at Birnam too. The neighbouring properties can be booked individually, so you can enjoy a perfectly private holiday. But if you are looking for somewhere to stay with a larger group, they can both be booked together as The Ultimate Royal Retreat to accommodate up to 20 guests. There is a gate in the garden that adjoins the two properties.

Experience the culture, coast and countryside.

Royal Retreat is idyllically located for exploring South Kent and its surrounding areas. With walks straight from the door, there are lots of routes and trails to discover, through the tranquil surrounding Kent countryside and beyond.

Thrill-seekers can also enjoy wakeboarding, bubble football, archery and more activities nearby.

Culture enthusiasts will love visiting the unspoilt medieval town of Sandwich, just a 7-minute drive away. Said to contain more half-timbered houses than any other street in England, it is steeped in history and brimming with character.

A little further (but still just a half hour drive) is the Cathedral city of Canterbury. Full of historic buildings, both have a lot of tales and stories to share as well as a fantastic selection of shops and restaurants to visit. If you need to top up your Vitamin Sea, it’s just a 20-minute drive to the coast. Build sandcastles on Deal Beach; treat yourself to fish and chips, ice-cream and donuts in Margate or escape for a quiet stroll along the shore at Stone Bay.

Beth Staples

Michael & Esther have had difficulty finding suitable holiday rentals in the UK near London to go with their family. A place in the countryside where they could have privacy, luxury and fun all at the same time wasn't easy to find. They decided the solution to the problem was to create their own holiday home. Royal Retreat holiday rentals are exactly what you need to get away from it all and just unwind and spend quality time your friends and or family.
