- Area Highlights There can be few places as tranquil as Kent’s Elham Valley that are so easy to reach and offer such a range of activities. Enjoy a walk in the unspoiled countryside followed by a pub lunch at one of the many charming village pubs. Breathe in the fresh air, drink in the views and feel yourself relax. The Elham Valley Way, a 21 mile promoted footpath, passes over fields and through woods and villages, it therefore provides a wondeful encounter for the long distance walker. The Way largely traverses the track of the old Canterbury – Folkestone Elham Valley Railway which closed in 1947. The pretty village of Elham hosts some wonderful historic houses of Kent together with welcoming pubs, and log fires in the winter. There is so much to see and do in the area surrounding THE VIEW and much of this is outlined in the OUT AND ABOUT tab on the main menu. Additionally, The View is very close to the coast and great beaches that can be found in Folkestone, Hythe, Dymchurch, Greatstone, Littlestone, Greatstone and St Mary’s Bay.
