This lovely cottage is situated in the historic town of Hythe, one of the original Cinque Ports.
Once an artist's studio this property has now been transformed into a stylish, self-catering holiday home, making this a perfect place to stay for couples or families holidaying in this part of Kent.
Tucked away along a narrow lane, yet only yards from the bustling high street, guests will step up into a contemporary living room which can be extended into the courtyard garden by opening the bi-folding doors at the far end.
Perfect on sunny mornings when you want to welcome in the start of a new day, or where on warm evenings you can dine under the stars.
The two attractive double bedrooms have been decorated and furnished to encourage rest and relaxation after busy days exploring and sightseeing along the Kent coastline.
The master bedroom offers a bathroom en-suite, so indulge yourself with a long, hot soak in scented bubbles before climbing into bed and drifting off to sleep.
The well-fitted kitchen although not large, has everything you need to make the most from your holiday.
With so much to see and do in Hythe and along this part of the coast, days out will be packed from morning until evening.
Whether you enjoy swimming, windsurfing, fishing, golf, birdwatching, cycling or just lazing on the beach with a good book, this is the holiday home to choose!
Alternatively, you will be equally suited if browsing around bric-a-brac shops, enjoying a cream tea in the afternoon or indulging in the culinary skills from the Far East are on your holiday agenda.

About the location
Folkestone 4.3miles; Channel Tunnel 4 miles; Dymchurch 6 miles; Dungeness 16miles; Dover 13 miles.
Hythe is one of the five original Cinque Ports identifed by Edward the Confesssor as ports that would provide ships and sailors to protect this part of the English coastline from invaders, and in exchange the towns would retain all legal fees assigned in court cases. Of course this made these towns far more prosperous than most towns of the same size, and the result of this can still be seen by visitors when visiting Hythe. Running through the centre of the town is The Royal Military Canal. This was dug during the Napoleonic era as a defensive measure against possible French invasion. Now this lovey waterway is more popular with walkers and those taking a break from work; the grassy banks are a delightful place to picnic or sit and read. You can even hire a rowing boat and row yourself along the Canal and this unique part of Kent. A five minute stroll from the town and you will find yourself on the sea front. This wide promenade overlooks a long stretch of beach, with views over the English Channel to France, it is ideal for a summer picnic and safe bathing. Hythe offers visitors so much with golf, tennis, riding, bowls, squash, boating, windsurfing, freshwater and sea angling all available. Romney Marsh lies west of the town and can be explored by foot, car, bicycle or using the world's smallest public railway. Hythe is the eastern terminus for the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Light Railway, so why not climb aboard and alight at Dungeness where you can visit the nature reserve, explore the lighthouse, and perhaps get a chance to see some painters and artists at work, before returning by the narrow gauge railway back to the delights of Hythe.
