A charming Victorian seafront cottage in the village of Sandgate. Albion Cottage is a terraced house right on the seafront with great views over the channel. Accommodation is over 3 floors with four good size bedrooms. There are three bathrooms - two with a shower and one with a bath and shower. The house is in the village of Sandgate which has a good selection of pubs, restaurants and convenience shops. Parking is available right outside, good bus connections to both Hythe and Folkestone.

The space
Right on the seafront, 10 metres from the beach yet very close to pubs and restaurants. Beautiful views over to France, you will be lulled to sleep by the sound of the sea. Visitors' parking available right outside. Fast train from Folkestone West to St Pancras take about 55 minutes. 10 minutes away from the Channel tunnel terminal so it is very easy to get to France for a day trip. Plenty of space in the house, secure back garden if you need to store bikes.

Where you’ll be

Sandgate, England, United Kingdom

Sandgate is a friendly peaceful village which has a good selection of pubs, cafes and restaurants. Folkestone is a pleasant twenty minute walk away along the seafront and has further pubs, cafes and restaurants including the award winning Rocksalt on the harbour front. The Ship Inn is close to the house and is a very friendly local pub with a great restaurant, Stuart and Wendy who own it are old friends. There is also an Indian restaurant, a Thai Restaurant and various takeaway restaurants. There are no banks in the village but the village shop has a free cashpoint and the Ship Inn will both you cashback. There are a few small food shops but the nearest supermarket is the Tesco by the motorway junction. For other shopping Folkestone and Hythe both have a wide range of shops including Waitrose, Sainsbury's, Aldi and Lidl. Golf is available at Etchinghall golf club. The house is an ideal location as a base for Channel swims. We recently hosted the incredible Sarah Thomas who swam the channel an incredible 4 times non stop.
