Overview

About the property

Cottage in Hythe, Nr. Folkestone, Kent, England - Convenient Location Close To High Street And A 5 Minute Walk To The Seafront

This 18th Century 2 bedroom cottage is situated on Stade Street which runs between the High Street and the Seafront. On the High Street, a five minute stroll from the cottage, you will find a variety of interesting and 'artie' shops, selling artifacts and crafty materials, great for presents, cafes, pubs and restaurants suiting any pocket. We recommend the Hythe Brasserie and in the summer, Greggs Fish mongers offer beautifully cooked fishat tables on the beach. Waitrose is a 10 minute walk along the Military Canal bank in one direction and Sainsbury's the other. The seafront, a 10 minute stroll, has a promenade great for walking, cycling or roller skating. The cycle path continues into Folkestone and is a flat and traffic free ride. (Cycle hire can be arranged.) Great days out are offered by the Hythe and Dymchuch Railway, Port Lympne Wildlife Park, Dover Castle, Cantebury with London and France just over an hour away. The cottage is cosy with a coal effect gas fire and central heating retaining its historical charm whilst equipped with all modern facilities.

About Nicola Deane

I live in Hythe with my husband and our rescue dog Daisy. For many years I lived and worked in London but now enjoy the peace of this lovely town and a different pace of life.

Why Nicola Deane chose Kent

For many years my husband and I lived in London and used the cottage as a weekend retreat. Last year we decided to live full time in this beautiful part of the world and relocated to Hythe. We gave the cottage a face lift and hope that others will enjoy it as much as we did.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is within easy reach of the town and the seafront. When we used to come for weekends and short breaks I loved the fact that I could park up the car and not use it again until we were heading home. There are good cycle paths in the area and many of them are very flat! There are excellent walks and many guided walks too. The shopping facilities are varied and if you like to find a bargain the charity shops and auction houses are plentiful.

If you want to use your car there are many beautiful beaches from the wildness of Dungeness to the miles of golden sands at Camber. Many beautiful villages nestle in the surrounding countryside. The landscape has great variety with the Romney Marshes and the hills and cliffs at Dover.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The cottage was well equipped and had a lovely open feel. Hythe is an interesting town with plenty to see and do. We didn't use our car once."

Lovely property conveniently situated close to beach and town centre.

  • 4 of 5

Very much enjoyed our stay. Nicely presented and clean with comfortable beds. The property had all the necessary amenities. Made for a relaxing stay. Our daughters loved it. Very nice owners. We would definitely stay again. I would rarely rank anything five star but this was close to 5 stars. There was some road/pedestrian noise but that didn't really detract from the peaceful stay and limited outdoor space which might have been a slight issue for a longer stay but not on this occasion.

Lovely cosy cottage in a central location

  • 5 of 5

We have had a relaxing few days in this lovely cottage. It is well equipped with all your home comforts. We arrived to a very friendly welcome from the owner Nicola and a very nice basket of goodies much appreciated thank you. The location of the property is perfect for lots of lovely walks both along the canal and by the sea. We would love to return.

Great cottage in a nice, small town

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 2nd stay in this superbly equipped cottage. Nicola and Chris managed to create a "home away from home"-feeling. Tulips and a welcome basket contribute to that impression. The cottage is ideally situated not far from the sea and the Military Canal.

We would definitely like to come again.

Confortable historical cottage with all services

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there for 4 days and we loved it. The cottage was built in 1720 but it has been equipped really well! Heating works pretty well. Isolation is nice. You can enjoy Satellite TV, DVD, Internet, dishwasher and all kitchen tools are available. The beds are really cosy and the cottage is well structured. The cottage is really close to 3 supermarkets (Aldi, Waitrose, Sainsbury's), beach and High Street (walk distance). There is also a pub close by.

The two owners are really nice and when we arrived, there was a welcome pack with milk, biscuits, bread, butter, jam and wine. We enjoyed all of it! There were also flowers in all rooms. In a nutshell ... good deal and nice experience.

Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for long weekend in February. Cottage as described, very homely and terrific location for high street and coast. Owner very easy, informative and efficient to deal with. We were met and welcomed by the key holders who made us feel at home. Overall would not hesitate to use cottage again, and would happily recommend to family or friends.
