LOCATION

The location is perfect for taking in the beautiful countryside via the local footpaths, including the Royal Military Canal, which runs all the way from Seabrook near Folkestone to cliff end Hastings via Rye. If cycling is more your thing, there are numerous flat, green lanes which wind their way through the marsh.

Dungeness is a must. Its nuclear power stations and lighthouses provide the perfect backdrop to this most fascinating part of Kent. The houses are made up of disused railway carriages and black painted weatherboard houses, surrounded by plants & Insects many only found in this part of the UK. The gravel pits attract hundreds of varieties of coastal and migratory birds looking for refuge and the RSPB have great observatory points.

We are also conveniently placed for visiting the cinque ports, which are steeped in history, especially Rye & Winchelsea which have some beautiful old buildings, streets & ruins which to explore.

The walled city of Canterbury with its fantastic cathedral & the more recent addition of the Marlowe theatre is just 24 miles away and worth a look.

FAMILIES

For families with young children, the South of England Rare Breeds Centre, which is a 100 acre visitor farm, run by the Canterbury Oast Trust, is just a mile away. Check out their website!

LOCAL ATTRACTIONS

The miniature Romney, hythe & Dymchurch Railway terminates at Dungeness and is well worth the journey. And whilst there try out The Pilot restaurant which serves the best fish & chips.

SHOPS, PUBS & EATING OUT

Our closest village shop & post office is in the next village of Hamstreet which is approx. 2 miles away, for the bigger supermarkets you will have to go into Ashford or Tenterden.

There are several pubs in the area The Black Lion in Appledore. The Woolpack in Brookland & the recently re-opened Woolpack inn in nearby Warehorne which is a sister pub to The Globe Inn in Rye, which comes highly recommended.

Lastly the Indian Restaurant in Hamstreet is definitely worth a try.
