Cottages Ideally Placed for Sailing Holidays in Sandwich Bay
If you think a cottage holiday means no chance of getting your feet wet and practicing your Williamson’s turn (though less of these the better!) then fear not.
We have lots of cottages close to the Kent Coast and the waters of Sandwich Bay available to book throughout the year. Perfect for keeping the budding Ben Ainsle’s of the family happy and even those who haven’t got their hearts set on Olympic sailing stardom.
Sandwich Bay is an unprotected stretch of shingle beach, with views of Thanet one way and in the other you can catch glimpses of France. This fantastically non-touristy stretch is the ideal splashing ground for Wayfarers, Lasers and all manner of wobbly boats which seem to induce more time spent getting wet than moving with forward propulsion.
Many of the local clubs offer temporary membership whilst you are on holiday and short courses for those who find the allure of jibing and tacking just too irresistible not to learn. It may not be the America’s Cup, but the kids will find the exhilaration of manning their own vessel addictive, we’re sure!
If getting your sailing fix or having the opportunity to learn to sail whilst on holiday sounds like a perfect way to spend your time on the Kentish coast, then have a look below at some of the cottages available, all within a stone's throw of Sandwich Bay. Wait until the sun is over the yardarm and peruse what’s on offer - or call us on 0333 2020 899 and we'll be happy to recommend a holiday home to suit.
