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."

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.

Well appointed cottage which is ideally situated for seafront, canal and town.

  • 5 of 5

Parking outside the cottage is unrestricted, so once we had our space, there we stayed as we didn't need to drive anywhere over the weekend.

The owners Nicola and Chris, are very friendly and welcoming and made it clear that they were available to help if we had any problems or queries.

The cottage itself is lovely, bright, roomy and warm.

We found an unexpected basket of goodies on the kitchen table which we were delighted with. The kitchen is fully equipped and all the utilities are good quality.

There is one downstairs bathroom with toilet, bidet, basin, shower cubical and bath. The bath also has a shower attachment.

Both bedrooms have double beds! This is unusual in my experience and very welcome. The beds have high quality feather pillows and duvets which makes for extreme coziness.

Our two dogs were welcome and the back garden was available for their morning relief, which of course was immediately cleared.

Overall an excellent place to stay.. we will return.

A lovely cottage with lovely owners

  • 5 of 5

A comfy warm cottage, which the owners themselves had lived in for a year or more. Hence a homely feel rather than the Spartan furnishings some rental properties get by with. Very well equipped, super welcome basket of goodies. Bathroom is downstairs, so take care on the stairs if you need the loo in the night. Brilliant location, one way five minutes to the beach and the fish restaurant, the other way one minute to the canal, two minutes to what is a very interesting high street, five minutes to Waitrose or Sainsbury's. Onstreet parking, outside the door with luck. Recommended, we will go again. Our cat enjoyed himself as well!

An absolutely perfect stay in your cottage in Stade Street, Hythe.

  • 5 of 5

It is not always easy to find a nice place to stay if you have a dog. Therefore, we were really happy to have found this wonderful and superbly maintained cottage in Hythe. Nicola and Chris do everything to make you feel at home. A very generous welcome basket, lovely fresh flowers and most of all, the "guided tour" by Chris on our arrival made the start of our stay special.

The cottage:

The cottage is very tastefully decorated. The kitchen is well equipped, the beds are comfortable. The TV and Wifi worked without any problems.

The location:

The location is perfect for us. On-street parking is usually no problem in Stade Street. The Royal Military Canal is just round the corner and a very nice area for walking (the dog). The High Street is only minutes awayand we can very much recommend the pub "The Butt of Sherry" for a good meal. The shingle beach is down the street.

Activities:

Hythe is a lovely little town with good access to the motorway. We love going to Margate for a visit in the Turner Contemporary or the amazing Shell Grotto. In Hythe St. Leonard's Church with the crypt and ossuary is very impressive, though a bit creepy.

We definitely would like to come back and thanks again, Nicola and Chris.
