Our Town

The historic town of Hythe has plenty to offer. One of the original Cinque Ports it has a longstanding association with the military and was for many years the home of the army's School of Musketry, although that has now gone (and been replaced by a large supermarket) the ranges are still in regular use. The house in which the flat is situated was built in 1820 to accommodate officers.

The town centre is a short flat walk away where you can enjoy a shopping in the unique, independent shops that line the high street. There is a wide range of pubs, coffee shops an restaurants for all tastes and pockets - all within walking distance of the flat.

Overlooking the town is the ancient St Leonards Church which dates back to the 10th Century and is unique in having a skull-packed ossuary in the crypt. (with some notice we can often arrange access).

Central to the town (and less than a minute from the property) is the Napoleonic-era Royal Military Canal, with cycle and walking routes. Built as a defence it is now a Scheduled Ancient monument - during the summer season, you can hire a rowing boat or enjoy a leisurely trip on an electric cruiser.

Just a five minute walk is the Hythe Terminus of the world famous Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway; built in 1927 and known as “Kent’s Mainline in Miniature” it runs a regular year-round service along the 13½ miles of track from Hythe, terminating in Dungeness; a National Nature Reserve. Trains are usually hauled by steam powered engines.

The beach is a flat 10 minute walk from the property with stunning views of the English Channel to enjoy while strolling the Victorian promenade.

Available outdoor activities including sailing, windsurfing, paddle boarding, kite surfing swimming and golf. The town boasts a beautiful long beachfront that is perfect for a seaside walk, picnic or flying kites.

A short drive away is the popular Port Lympne Animal Reserve with its stunning scenery and endangered animals.

Great place to stay ideal location for all amenities
Property was very clean and tidy, had a quirky touch with all the musical instruments. The oven/microwave was a bit difficult to operate at first, once working was fine.

Nice
Very clean throughout and comfy beds. Quiet location off main road. Very handy for local supermarket on opposite side of lovely canal. Had minor issue trying to turn on induction hob but help was at close hand and afterwards had no further trouble

Just perfect
Lovely place to stay, near to all amenities, and in a quiet little cul de sac. Hythe has everything you need with some lovely walks along the Military Canal and seafront. Steve and Karen are really welcoming and we really enjoyed our stay.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely apartment in great location
Everything about this holiday let exceeded our expectations. The accommodation was spacious, very comfortable, clean, in a great location, with everything we needed and more. We loved the quirkiness of the posters and art work on the walls, out of commission musical instruments displayed and little touches that made it feel like home from home.
