- Quiet site in the grounds of a coarse fishery a mile from Sandwich
- 10 miles from Canterbury and Howletts Wild Animal Park
- Great fishing on site, with six well-stocked lakes
Sandwich Lakes is a small quiet site in the grounds of a coarse fishery a mile from the centre of Sandwich.
As you might imagine, this is a top spot to settle in if you're into fishing, as the fishery has six lakes stocked with perch, tench, bream, roach and rudd. You can also fish for common and mirror carp: whoppers of up to 35lb have been recorded here (not to mention all the ones that got away...). A tackle and bait shop along with rod hire takes care of the practical side.
The on-site café serves hot meals and snacks all day from early morning to early evening. Supermarkets for stocking up are a 15-minute drive away in Sandwich, along with a brimming catch of pubs, cafés and restaurants for when you fancy something more substantial.
While you're in Sandwich, the Secret Gardens a well worth snooping round too... three and a half acres of lush greenery around a Georgian manor house created in 1911, they're just the ticket for cool walks on hot days, especially when topped off with cream teas.

You're never too far from the coast in Kent, and a 10-minute trip takes you to the Sandwich and Pegwell Bay National Nature Reserve for walking trails and wildlife spotting. Ramsgate (15 minutes' drive) has a rich amount to offer, with a sandy beach, seal spotting and fishing trips from the harbour, and a maritime museum.
If you're hankering after some more history, Richborough (five minutes) has a well-preserved Roman fort and amphitheatre. A minute from the site, meanwhile, the White Mill Rural Heritage Centre is far more than a striking building to photograph; the exhibits and outhouses of this preserved 19th-century smock mill record a whole vanished way of Kentish country life. For cobbled lanes and cathedral tours, Canterbury is 20 minutes away.
After that, connect with your wild side at Howletts Wild Animal Park (20 minutes), a conservation project rather than a zoo which houses and protects the future of 400 species, many of them endangered. After hanging with the elephant herds and greeting the baby rhinos, Dreamland Margate (also 20 minutes) makes you feel like you've stepped into another universe, with traditional fairground rides and amusements bringing the former days of seaside entertainment back to life with a whoop.
