Property Overview

This charming traditional ragstone cottage is tucked away from the road and sits in a row of five cottages originally built for workmen some 200 years ago. Claire's Cottage has been lovingly restored with the decor and furnishings offering many homely touches and comforts to make your stay relaxing, including the wood burning stove in the living room. There is an enclosed cottage style garden which has been beautifully planted and is a real suntrap where you can enjoy eating out in the summer.


Property Details

The Space
Step through the front door directly into the kitchen. With a tiled floor and fitted cottage style units with a butler sink, amenities include a fridge with freezer compartment, washing machine, microwave, electric cooker and hob. The window overlooks the front, and a door leads up the stairs, whilst the other door leads through to the living room.

A cosy carpeted room, the living area at Claire’s Cottage houses an original fireplace which remains a delightful wood burning stove. You’ll find built-in cupboards and bookshelves on either side of the fireplace. There is a comfortable two-seater sofa and TV, plus an extending gateleg dining table with two dining chairs.

Overlooking the back garden, the bedroom is carpeted and has a king size bed with bedside tables and lamps. There is also a wardrobe and a dressing table, together with a chest of drawers and an armchair.

Head to the bathroom and you’ll find a shower cubicle, a hand basin, a heated towel rail and WC.

Outside Claire’s Cottage is a pretty, enclosed garden which is south facing and a real suntrap. There are planted borders and a small patio area by the back door, along with garden furniture and a BBQ.

The suburb of Saltwood, on the edge of Hythe, has a hotel with bar and restaurant called The Castle which is just a five-minute walk from Claire’s Cottage. There is also a Michelin starred restaurant called The Hide & Fox which is well worth booking ahead for a special occasion.

Take a walk to Saltwood Castle and enjoy the stunning views out to sea from the public footpath through the park or visit Brockhill Country Park, only 15-minutes' walk from the cottage.

Hythe is a traditional seaside town with a lovely mix of independent shops, cafes and restaurants. The delightful Romney Hythe and Dymchurch miniature steam railway will whisk you away to Dungeness and the lighthouse. Hythe Bay shingle beach and the wonderful wide esplanade along the seafront is the perfect place to breathe in the sea air and enjoy the views to France.

Head for the Royal Military canal for some fun in boats or perhaps have a day out at Port Lympne Wildlife Park which is only a few miles away.

If you prefer a countryside ramble just head out to one of the many villages on Romney Marsh and do some exploring - the 14 historic village churches are well worth a visit.

Nearby Sandgate is very popular and great for finding antiques or visit the Little Fish and Chip Shop and have your fish and chips on the beach whilst the sun goes down.

Folkestone Harbour Arm and Creative Quarter offer a vibrant and fun shopping and eating experience. If you need some retail therapy look no further than Ashford Designer Outlet centre, where you can pick up a bargain and enjoy one of the many cafes and restaurants.
