All the best places to stay in the Swale area of North Kent
From country cottages in the North Downs to traditional bed and breakfasts on the maritime setting of the Isle of Sheppey, Swale offers a wide range of places to stay where you’ll never be far from the action. With excellent travel links, all accommodation makes a fantastic base from which to Visit Kent and even beyond. Sittingbourne for example can be reached in just over an hour from London or half an hour from the tourist centre of Canterbury by rail.
Our lists of hotels and B&Bs are sure to provide a cosy, pleasant nook for you to kick back and relax after a long day spent on foot. With extra facilities like spas, swimming pools, restaurants and bars, there’ll be no excuse for you not to feel rested and energised at the end of your stay.
If you prefer to go self-catered however, there are a number of cottages run by reputable self-catering chains to make your stay as homely as possible. Try our range of Mulberry Cottages in the local villages, or the independent and accredited domestic idylls in Faversham. Alternatively, you might decide to go au natural with a fun weekend of camping or make yourself at home in one of the caravan parks on the Isle of Sheppey.

As well as graded accommodation we also list providers that have signed up to the ‘Kent Tourism Accommodation Standards Charter’, a local entry scheme aimed at ensuring a level of quality as part of our listing conditions.
Other accommodation providers such as Premier Inn at Sittingbourne may be signed up to their own quality schemes or wish to promote themselves independently.
Details of accessible accommodation and attractions across the South of England can be found on our partner website Visit Kent.
Whatever your accommodation requirements and preferences, you’ll be able to find it in Swale, where coast and country live side by side.
