Sea Holly is a charming period cottage nestled into Hythe's picturesque hillside within the conservation area, with lovely views over the town and to the sea beyond. The landscaped garden is a delightful space for summer living, with sea glimpses and seating areas amongst the tall grasses and tropical planting. The cottage is a well equipped and comfortable retreat from the bustle of the town and sea front, yet is only a short stroll to shops, pubs and restaurants, with little need to use a car.

The Cinque Port of Hythe has changed little over the years, with its narrow streets and passageways complemented by historic buildings, public gardens, the Royal Military Canal and the expansive sea front promenade.

Attractions and nearby amenities
Hythe's beach, where fishing boats are pulled up between trips, is a pleasant 12-minute walk from the holiday property via the Royal Military Canal and "Ladies Walk" gardens.
One can walk and cycle along the promenade or simply sit on the beach and watch the more energetic windsurfing and sailing.
Romney Hythe and Dymchurch Railway, where one can take a trip on the world's smallest public steam railway across Kent's famous Romney Marsh to Dungeness.
Other nearby Kent attractions are Brockhill Country Park with 54 acres of lakes and woodland walks (10 minutes), Port Lympne Animal Park (20 minutes), Dover Castle and the Cinque Port of Rye.
A little further afield you will find the beautiful, historical city of Canterbury (45 minutes) where you can visit the famous cathedral, go punting on the river or simply wander through the streets admiring the spectacular architecture.
If you prefer the outdoors, take a drive to Sandwich and Pegwell Bay National Nature Reserve (45 minutes) where you will discover an abundance of wildlife or enjoy some lovely walks while breathing in the sea air.
For the more adventurous the Channel Tunnel allows easy access to the French coast, and day trips by car to the attractive towns of Boulogne, Montreuil and Le Touquet.
Sandling mainline railway station (five minutes drive from the property) provides access to London (journey time one hour 26 minutes).
