A seaside escape with that feeling of being in a home from home is assured at Prospect Cottage in Hythe. A charming detached two-bedroom family home offers super space and ample living space along with parking for 2 cars on the driveway.

The location is prime and as the name explains you will find the cottage along Prospect Road which is sandwiched between the high street and the military canal. Enjoy punts/boat trips with an ice cream in hand, or strolls along the old high street into some independent shops. Hythe is home to seafront cycling, cream teas and a scone in a tea room, and not forgetting the Romney Hythe and Dymchurch miniature railway which whisks its riders to the funfair of Dymchurch or down to the eerie landscape of Dungeness.

In the Area


Hythe is one of those places that is a bit of a secret along the Kent coast. Its very name is the "landing place” and historically it was a major port on the English Channel. It is also one of the original five Cinque Ports that provided naval support for monarchs and as such the railway and military canal has serviced connections across this corner of the Kent coast over many years. Since those days, the harbour has silted up so it no longer functions as the busy port it once was, but it is a popular seaside town with all sorts of activities and amenities, perfect now for those precious holiday getaways.

Culture and castles can be found here, including a Hythe at Saltwood and Lympne. Saltwood was the ancestral home of Lord Deedes. Port Lympne the wildlife reserve sits beside Lympne Castle. The reserve park is now dedicated to the conservation of endangered species and visitors can take a Safari tour around a huge park and, enjoy experiencing wild animals up close. There are even experiences and a choice of cafes and restaurants on-site to enjoy.

The views across to France are spectacular down at the pebble bay. Hythe is the Northern Terminus of the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway which runs through Romney Marsh to the wild shingle peninsular that is Dungeness. This miniature railway was set up by Captain Howey and Count Zborowski in 1927 and runs steam trains seasonally and is particularly lovely at Christmas time for all the family.

Hythe is also the starting point of the Royal Military Canal which runs to Winchelsea and was built as a defence against Napoleonic invasion. It now provides a wonderful habitat for all sorts of wildlife including birds, and frogs and with dappling light cascading among the trees, quite the place for a romantic walk. The summer brings life to the canal with the hire of river boats for couples and small families to enjoy - you can also grab a cone on your way via the resident ice cream van. Every other year, the town holds a Venetian Festival on the part of the canal that runs through the centre with amusing floats, music and fireworks making for an entertaining evening.

Another form of defence against Napoleon was the 74 Martello Towers constructed between Folkestone and Seaford. Three towers survive in Hythe and one of them is a private house with splendid sea views!

Lovely cosy cottage 5/5

the cottage was lovely and very cosy, ideal position just behind the High St. The beds were both comfortable, and the kitchen was well equipped. Had a really lovely stay

Thank you for hosting us for this lovely weekend break by the sea. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the beach, the town and the animal park. Highly recommend the Star Cafe on the high street for breakfast, don't over order like we did!

A very comfortable house in an excellent location. 4.3/5

Prospect Cottage was comfortable and well equipped. The efficient heating system was much appreciated as the weather was rather cold for late April. The house is spacious and has everything needed for an enjoyable holiday. It’s only 2 minutes walk from the High Street and the same distance to the Military Canal. The sea front is about 10 minutes. It’s also very quiet in spite of being close to the main road. I wasn’t impressed by the way previous guests had left the kitchen utensils and cutlery. I had to wash each item before I could use it. The TV was a bit of a mystery but we were able to watch the ordinary channels. My husband adjusted the indoor aerial to improve reception and got a slight shock. This is a well situated house and we would definitely recommend.

The house was everything we wanted. Very comfortable and well equipped. We appreciated the efficient heating system as it was very cold the week we were here. Very well placed for the town and the seafront. We enjoyed walks along the canal in both directions. The Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch railway out to Dungeness was great fun and Dungeness itself was very interesting with lots to see and do in the area. We would recommend.

We loved the cosiness and we had everything we needed. We enjoyed the walks to the beach and around Hythe. Definitely a nice place to live. We hope we can come back again.

Thank you for a delightful stay. The house had everything we needed and the area has lots to offer. We enjoyed a walk to Folkestone along the canal and back along the seafront. Just perfect.

Beautiful Hythe in January 4.5/5

This cottage is in a great location - just a stones throw from the High Street, canal and a short flat walk to the sea (and a small green dog exercise area near the canal). We enjoyed some great eateries over a long weekend and were blessed with sunny (if a little chilly) weather. The bedrooms are huge! The cottage has original doors and windows so noise suppression isn’t great, but the road isn’t terribly busy so all in all didn’t detract too much from the stay (although the heating was essential to help balance out the occasional draughty window). The place was immaculately clean with good quality, soft and comfortable linens. The tv was a bit of a mystery - it had google chromecast but we couldn’t fathom it out - the weather was so lovely though that it didn’t matter. The option of a stair gate for the bottom of the stairs would have been helpful - we ended up using a dining chair to ensure our dogs didn’t even think about attempting the stairs - but the paint was a little flaky so made a bit of a mess in the hallway. I would definately come here again - although the price was a little steep as there was only 2 of us in an off-season period, as was the £60 charge for the dogs for 3 days.

A very comfortable property with everything you need. Extremely convenient for town centre, walks by the Royal Military Canal, and of course the seafront. Very amiable owner too. Recommended.

See below 4.3/5

The accommodation was excellent! Beds very good and the rooms and kitchen very spacious. What we missed are bedside lamps in the back bedroom and a chair to sit on if you want to change. We also missed a cupboard with hangers for a dress, shirt or jacket. In the bathroom an extra shelf for the toiletry bag would be very nice, as well as extra hooks for towels. A coat rack for coats would also be very nice, especially if the weather is wet so that the coats can dry somewhere. When we arrived and wanted to use something, we noticed that almost all the crockery, glasses and cutlery were dirty. Plates were messily stacked and wet. Fingers and dirt on the wine glasses, unwashed cutlery. We only cleaned what we used. We were missing (enough) tea towels in the kitchen, how do you dry the dishes? The central heating was only on in the morning and evening, not during the day, it was very difficult to get the house warm. We contacted the agency and they later said that there was a clock on the stove in the kitchen, luckily this was resolved. Curtain rail in the living room, the curtain on the right kept falling off, there appeared to be no final battle on the rails, provisionally solved with a piece of plastic. A personal welcome would also be very nice, going through everything together is very nice for the course of the holiday. Sorry for my funny English… Regards, Hanne Ruiter from The Netherlands

Pretty house in a great location 4.7/5

We had a lovely week in Hythe staying at Prospect Cottage. The house is beautifully decorated and very spacious, with everything you need. I particularly loved browsing the large selection of cook books.

a long weekend in Hythe 4.8/5

We had a great long weekend in Hythe! It is a cosy village around the cottage and up the hill. Small alleys, right now in the spring also with mediterranean flair. The cottage is well equipped, everything you need you can find. You don't have to drive by car to next supermarket!!!!! That really is a benefit! Waitrose is around the corner. You can leave the car at the cottage and can do everything by feet. Only 10 minutes to the waterfront. The only thing for us to moan about would be the relativ small bed in the master-bedroom.
