Interaction with guestsAs renters of many holidays properties we know that guests needs vary and there is a delicate balance between support from the owners and privacy whilst you are away. We therefore provide a key box so you don't have to worry about arriving at a specific time and can just turn up anytime after 4pm. We will plan to call you the following day to make sure you have everything you need. We are local and are happy to provide any advice or assistance during your stay to ensure you enjoy your holiday to the maximum. Fiona and Graham

Spitfire View was really well equipped and comfortable accommodation. It was very easy to get in/out of Folkestone to see other sites in the area. And it lived up to the name with at least one spitfire flying over almost everyday. With COVID, many smaller attractions remained closed but larger sites, including heritage railways were open. And we particularly enjoyed our wine tasting session at Terlington Vinyard, close enough to use taxi’s. A great holiday..

The place was fantastic - lots of space both inside and outside, very thoughtfully designed to create different areas for guests to sit. Everything was in good working order, and the instructions for using the kitchen appliances were clear and easy to understand. Only a 20 minute walk from the coast with both Folkestone and neighbouring beaches in easy reach.

Es una casa hermosa, amplia, cómoda, los muebles y electrodomésticos son ultra modernos. Tiene jardín y todas las comodidades para pasar una excelente estadía. Está a 20 minutos de la playa caminando con una vista increíble de los white cliff. A 15 minutos hay un supermercado. El barrio es muy tranquilo. Si tuviera que volver definitivamente sería aquí. Altamente recomendable!

About the neighbourhood
Kent is part of the Garden of England, and has attractions for all types young and old from rolling hills to scenic villages and great pubs. Spitfire View is located in a very pleasant respected area on the outskirts of Folkestone town with easy access on foot (or by road), to many attractions such as the Harbour Arm, with its pop up restaurants and outside cinema to the costal park, Dover Castle or the white cliffs. There are many scenic drives to be had throughout Kent and some excellent shopping centres, or visit the continent using the Channel Tunnel or ferry for a day trip to France, Belgium or Holland or take the Eurostar to Disneyland Paris in just over 2 hours. Chatham dockyard famous for 'Call the midwife' is well worth a visit.
Getting around
Folkestone has excellent Transport links to London, (less than 1 hour), Eurostar to Paris or Brussels (around 2 hrs), and a good road and public transport network. You don't need a car to enjoy Spitfire View, there is plenty to do and see on foot. However to enjoy Kent to the full and visit the Kentish villages, great pubs further afield then we would recommend one.
