Kent Staycation

16th August 2020

Earlier this month we packed up our car and headed down to Kent for a four day break. With a car filled with just about everything but the kitchen sink (how do babies need so many things?), we made the drive from London to Margate. Having never stayed in Kent before, we were keen to […]
