A quirky little house that has been thoughtfully renovated and has the unique feature of being attached to  an original World War II pillbox.  The location set on the escarpment above Romney Marsh gives the property far reaching views to the sea, hence the position was excellent for a look-out post. The Den is a tranquil haven and comfortably sleeps two, it has a small patio overlooking a wild flower meadow, pretty gardens and countryside.  Just down the road you will find Port Lympne Wild Animal park which provides a fantastic day out and sometimes the animals can even be heard from the house.  A public footpath leads from just behind the house, through the fields down onto Romney Marsh.  For a day at the seaside head out to nearby Hythe, with its lovely wide open bay and esplanade to stroll along, boats to hire on the Royal Military canal and the wonderful miniature steam railway which chuffs its way through Romney Marsh to Dungeness and the lighthouse.  Lympne Castle Bistro in the village is perfect for eating out, or the nearby village of Aldington has two good pubs and a village stores.  Shop: 2.4 miles    Pub: 1 mile   Coast: 5 miles

What a fantastic find! The property was extremely clean, well-equipped and comfortable. The quality of accommodation is very high. The Den is situated in a beautiful setting, great for both walking and cycling. Our host Roger was friendly and helpful offering useful information about the local area. We especially enjoyed visiting Derek Jarman’s garden at Dungeness, the Art Trail in Folkestone and lots of bracing seafront walks. A very enjoyable week long stay.

Georgina & J,

After months of lockdown, The Den was a complete home. Simply sitting in the garden and looking at the view was all we needed. A cosy, super cottage, very comfortable bed, perfectly equipped & thoughtful touches that made all the difference - fresh flowers, water by the bed and the emboidered linen was delightful. Roger was a friendly, flexible and very accommodating host, doing a brilliant job in his beautiful home. Thank you for having us.
