A pretty coastal spot that sits just outside Romney Marsh. This small market town offers plenty of restaurants and cafes for all tastes. The High Street has a mixture of unique and independent shops. The famous military canal begins at Seabrook and runs through Hythe all the way to Romney Marsh and Winchelsea. The canal is 26 miles long and if you enjoy walking, you can walk the along the banks the whole length of the canal.
If you want something for all the family to enjoy, a visit to the Port Lympne Reserve near Hythe is a must. The estate is set in 600 acres and incorporates the historic mansion with beautiful landscaped gardens. The animal park has many endangered species and rare breeds at the reserve so is worth a visit. If you enjoy visiting gardens and manor houses you can trot along to Brockhill Country Park in Saltwood Hythe.
Of course the famous steam railway with a railway track of just over 13 miles has a station stop in Hythe and travels through to Dymchurch.
The area has so much to explore and we have some lovely places for you to stay so you don’t have to miss out on anything. You could stay at Hydene Cottage that sleeps (2) or Cherry Tree Cottage, Hectors House, Badgers Holt and Marine Parade that all sleep (4) and finally The Upper Mill sleeping 6 and Watsons which sleeps 8 for those larger families.
