    “Lovely cottage with every thought given to comfort, a real home from home.”

    Sitting on top of a hill the views are beautiful, finishing at the sea! Hythe is a lovely little town, an easy walk from the cottage. Keep going and you come upon the canal and shortly after that you are on the sea front, just lovely!

The property

Set in a commanding position above the town of Hythe, with expansive views of Romney Marsh to the west and Folkestone to the east, Kits Cottage is a charming, semi-detached cottage waiting just for you. It is well-suited to families and friends looking to tour the area, with plenty of attractions to appeal to all tastes.

Feel welcomed into the lounge from the moment you arrive and get cosy around the wood-burning stove as you relax into your evening and tune into the TV or grab a good read.

Move to the dining area to enjoy a deliciously prepared meal as you take in the coastal views from the far window and catch up on the events from the day.

You have all you need to put together a feast in the modern-style kitchen to the rear of the cottage, which boasts an electronically operated Velux window streaming in the natural light.

Climb the twisted staircase to the bedrooms, where you will find a king-size double and a twin room, ideal for those travelling with children. Wake up to a refreshing shower each morning in the wet room, where you can take in the views over the town as you dip your head under the rainfall shower fixture.

On a summer evening, you can sit out in the garden with a glass of wine and take in more of those inspiring views towards the sea.

A stroll through the churchyard across the way and find the centre of town within moments, where you have an assortment of amenities for you to make the most of during your stay. Enjoy waterside walks, days at the beach and many outdoor activities, including windsurfing, boating and angling.

Climb aboard the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Light Railway and visit the Dungeness National Nature Reservoir or discover the delights of Folkstone with its sandy beach, atmospheric harbour and Creative Quarter boasting over 100 art galleries. Find this splendid retreat to be just the place for you.

About the location


Folkestone 4.3miles; Channel Tunnel 4 miles; Dymchurch 6 miles; Dover 13 miles, Canterbury 20 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.
