The coastline enjoys a unique micro-climate which makes it one of the driest and sunniest places in Britain. The area has a stark beauty of its own, and also has unique wildlife, which is visible at the Nature reserves at Rye Harbour and Dungeness. The area around Littlestone is steeped in history which includes Dover Castle: Discover its labyrinth of secret wartime tunnels built deep in the White Cliffs of Dover. Kent Battle of Britain Museum: The most important collection of battle of britain artefacts on show in the country. It has its own unique steam railway the Romney Hythe and Dymchurch Railway which runs along the coast. This narrow gauge miniature railway is a great attraction for visitors. The coast provides the best sandy beaches in the South East of the country, with shallow water allowing safe access for children.

Amazing property in a wonderful location
We spent a couple of days there to celebrate my fiftieth. We all thought the house as amazing, clean and well laid out. The beds were comfortable and the views absolutely perfect. We also took advantage of the beach hut which was also absolutely charming.
We had a wonderful time and it was lovely to be so close to the sea.
The property was a large and spacious family home with all mod cons and a clean environment. It was very nice to fit all 12 of us around one dining table for a change and we made the most of the location and not letting the weather deter us from the beach.
The only stumbling block being Owners directs involvement in that they were not very helpful at all with there payment system and the people I spoke to on the phone couldn't tell me there name, location or could not transfer my calls to line managers or more senior team members to help.
Good communication from the actual owner and easy to speak to.
