"Seashells" is a delightfully quaint and cosy former fisherman's cottage 5 minutes walk to the seafront, Royal Military Canal and the High Street with its many shops and restaurants. It has a light and airy décor and a wood burning stove for chilly evenings.

The space
This idyllic little grade II listed cottage is perfect for that weekend getaway, a romantic trip for two or for a trip to the seaside for a couple with a child. It is quirky and full of charm with its beams, log burner, patchwork quilts and crisp cotton bedlinen.

To the rear of the property is a lovely landscaped, shingled garden with summer house and garden furniture.
Note: the garden is accessed up some fairly steep steps so will not be suitable for those with limited mobility.

Guest access
The cottage comprises a sitting room with wood burning stove, seating for three people, a table and chairs for two and a tv/dvd player. The kitchen has a small fridge, an electric oven and hob and microwave. Outside the back door of the kitchen is a small utility room where the washer/dryer and freezer are housed. There is storage space here for bikes, pushchairs etc.
Upstairs is the main bedroom with a double bed, a chest of drawers and a cupboard with hanging space. There is single room with a small single bed, a chest of drawers and a sink. The bathroom, which has a newly refurbished walk-in shower (2018) and toilet is accessed through this room. Towels and linen are provided.

Location

Hythe, England, United Kingdom

Hythe is a hidden gem of a town and there's lots to see and explore! The cottage is ideally placed to explore it all as it is just a short walk both to the seafront and the High Street with its many pubs, shops and restaurants. The Royal Military Canal also is a couple of minute's walk away where you can enjoy fishing, rowing or take a leisurely trip on the electric boat. You can take a trip out to Dungeness on the famous Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch light railway or visit the lovely Port Lympne Zoo just up the hill.

I've lived in Hythe for 37 years now and love it. It's a really friendly town, and I love how all the amenities are right on my doorstep; shops, bars and restaurants, and great walks along the canal, seafront or countryside. It's easy to get to Canterbury, Hastings, Dover or a take trip to France. I love travelling myself and am really happy that I can welcome people from all over to this lovely part of Kent and welcome them to this beautiful little cottage.
