Escape to the idyllic countryside and enjoy a peaceful retreat at our charming Saltwood cottage, Bunny Cottage. Nestled in a quaint village, surrounded by glorious countryside, yet moments from the sea, easily allowing you to explore both. A wonderful choice for both couples and families looking for a breakaway in this beautiful part of Kent.
Step inside and be greeted by the warm glow of the fireplace, inviting you to curl up with a good book, with hand-picked pieces of furniture and artwork paired together for a welcoming and homely feel. The cottage boasts a fully-equipped kitchen, perfect for whipping up a delicious meal with local ingredients, and a dining area, open plan to the sitting room, for cosy meals in together, with doors leading outside to the small but perfectly formed, enclosed garden.
Hidden behind an unassuming door, ideal for families with young children, stairs lead up to two generously sized bedrooms finished in calming tones, with white bed linen and plump pillows offering you a peaceful sanctuary for a restful night's sleep. Beautifully finished, the spacious bathroom enjoys both a shower, and a bathtub for you to unwind after a day of exploring.
A bijou, but perfectly formed, enclosed garden offers the ideal space for enjoying evening meals al fresco or simply soaking up the fresh coastal air. And with the nearby Brockhill Country Park and beaches just a short walk away, there's no shortage of opportunities to explore and enjoy the great outdoors.
Take a stroll through the nearby countryside and discover the breathtaking natural beauty of the area, with the glorious Brockhill Country Park a 10 minute walk away, or head to the nearby beaches to soak up the sun and breathe in the salty sea air. And for foodies, the Michelin-starred Hide and Fox restaurant is just a short walk away, offering a delectable culinary experience, whilst if a more low key meal out or drink is what you fancy the village pub is a minutes’ walk away. Equally charming, the coastal town of Hythe sits a few minutes drive away, or a 15 minute walk downhill, where you can delight in the independent restaurants, shops and cafes dotted along its historic high street, with a picturesque canal and long stretch of pebble beach both offering a beautiful backdrop for a stroll.

Separating the sea from the quaint high street, the Royal Military Canal awaits, with a peaceful pathway along its banks and boats to explore on water some Spring-Summer. And when you are ready for the sounds of the waves, a beautiful walk from the high street, over the canal, leads you along a tree lined walk along to the seafront. Whether you want to sit on the pebbles, stroll or cycle along the promenade, stretching as far as vibrant Folkestone, or sit in one of the beachfront cafes with lunch in hand, the choice is yours.

What about the extra bits to complete your break away?
A lovely getaway for the bank weekend, just to relax and unwind. The delightful cottage was thoughtfully decorated, put us at ease straightaway, with everything in tip top condition. Many attractions were within a short drive away. Great location with plenty to do. We walked to Hythe beach, a short drive to Lower Lea, Camber Sands and Great Stone beach. There were books and games as well, so you could curl up with a book or play board games.

Lovely Cottage 4.3/5
Sadly our stay was very brief due to a family bereavement. Only issue was awkward access for vehicles.
