RambleFest displays details of the Saxon Shore Way accommodation, camping, where to eat and drink, and public transport. We also include an Ordnance Survey map link for each location along the route for which we have service details. Please refer to the Saxon Shore Way Accommodation, Services and Mileage Table (below) for places visited along the route. By clicking on any location, the Ordnance Survey map for that location can be opened and dragged (and re-sized) to follow the route of the Way.

The Saxon Shore Way is a 160 mile long-distance footpath tracing the coastline of south-east England as it was in Saxon times, beginning at Gravesend and finishing at Hastings, and visiting most of the Cinque Ports. It passes by some very isolated pubs and villages, as well as towns.
As can be seen from the table below, there is plenty of accommodation, pubs and restaurants along the route, and also good transport links. At Gravesend it links with the Wealdway, at Rochester with the North Downs Way, and at Rye with the High Weald Landscape Trail. The route is mostly level, and should not present physical or navigational problems. It is marked by name on Ordnance Survey Explorer maps.

Notes on Saxon Shore Way Accommodation

Saxon Shore Way, Rye accommodation

Saxon Shore Way, Rye

We have listed the accommodation for each location in our Saxon Shore Way Accommodation, Services and Mileage Table below. Simply click on a location to open the page displaying the details of accommodation, camping, pubs, restaurants and public transport available at that location, including addresses and contact info.
We display a wide range of Saxon Shore Way accommodation type, e.g. B&B, Guest House, Hotel, Inn, Hostel, Self catering, camping, etc., but inevitably in some locations the accommodation is limited. Not all accommodation will offer evening meals; this needs to be ascertained with the individual landlords. B&B (Bed and Breakfast) is almost always within the same house, farm, etc. as the people who run it. Guest Houses are usually expected to be grander than B&B, but are not necessarily so. Hotels are grander still, and with the expected higher cost, although there is a range of hotel quality. Hostels offer the most basic of accommodation above Bunk-House and Camping, and are therefore among the cheapest. Quite often some cleaning is required on the part of the resident.
We have included Camping, although there are relatively few official campsites. We advise telephoning the individual sites for info on facilities. Also, it may well be worth telephoning farmhouse B&B to enquire about camping.

At first glance, there does not appear to be any Saxon Shore Way accommodation between Upchurch and Faversham, a distance of 32 miles. However, there are ways around this – refer to the Rochester, Iwade and Faversham pages. We welcome alternatives.
We are always looking to improve our information, and welcome Saxon Shore Way accommodation recommendations.

Saxon Shore Way Restaurants and Pubs

Saxon Shore Way, Whitstable accommodation

Saxon Shore Way, Whitstable

Some ramblers will be content to stay in their B&B in the evening and relax. Others will want to explore the villages and towns and sample the pubs and restaurants. Luckily, many pubs serve good food, and at a reasonable cost. As mentioned above, there is plenty of stopping points along the Way, whether for food or drink, and we have attempted to give as much information as possible on pubs and restaurants, especially regarding pubs serving real ale and/or food. However, restaurants and pubs are notoriously changeable. Please let us know if our information is out of date.
