Sandwich, Kent


From being a Saxon stronghold first mentioned in AD664 to its role as a Cinque Port, Sandwich is richly woven with history and traditions.

Sandwich, Kent

It is one of the most complete medieval towns in England and contains the highest number of listed buildings per head of population in the country. Sandwich was also the first town in Britain to have a preservation order placed on the entire town.

The street plan has changed little since the time of Domesday in 1086 and some churches, houses and public buildings date back to the 13th Century.

The historic town trail follows a quiet circular walk, much of it running alongside the River Stour. There are a number of historical pubs along the walk to enjoy a drink or two.

It is said that the nations most popular lunch, a hearty sandwich, was in fact invented by the 4th Earl of Sandwich.

One version of the story goes that the Earl asked for his meat to be served between 2 slices of bread to avoid making his cards sticky and interrupting his gambling game.

Another theory suggests that the Earl’s commitments to the navy, politics and the arts meant that the first sandwich was possibly consumed at his work desk.

Wander through the unspoilt, medieval streets, where there are more half-timbered houses than any other street in England.

Sandwich’s traditions have remained unchanged throughout the centuries – they still ring the curfew bell from St Peter’s church at 8pm every evening!

You can also enjoy the town from a river boat, which goes up the River Stour and take in some seal spotting. At the historic Guildhall you can discover the intact 400-year-old court room and great antiquities.

Sandwich, Kent


There are three world class golf courses on the doorstep of all our properties.

Royal St Georges is a championship links golf course, and hosted The Open in 2021. This tricky course is not for the faint hearted, keeping pros (including Tiger Woods, Jordan Spieth, Ricky Fowler ) all on their toes, it is the definitely considered bucket list golf course.

Also in the area is Royal Cinque Ports and Princes Golf Club, each outstanding links courses and slightly more affordable.

Our properties are definitely havens for all golf enthusiasts!
