On the 16th July 1927, the Romney Hythe and Dymchurch Railway (RHDR) a narrow gauge railway was opened, Littlestone lies about 1/2 mile south of the main headquarters of the railway at New Romney . During 1928, the nameboards at the New Romney station were changed to read "Littlestone-on-Sea" in an effort to emphasise the railway's seaside location.
The railway was built by Captain J. E. P. Howey and Count Louis Zborowski to serve the local population and tourist trade, it stretches for nearly 14 miles from Hythe through Dymchurch, St Marys Bay, its base at New Romney, Romney Sands and then to the fishermens cottages and lighthouses at Dungeness. It is still a major tourist attraction and well worth a visit. http://www.rhdr.org.uk/rhdr/home_flash.html
Out to sea, lies a section of the Concrete Mulberry Harbour built during 1944 for the Dunkirk landings in the Second World War. This section became detached from its tug and drifted back to Littlestone. This platform is clearly visible from our photographs.

"Excellent place to stay for a large group"
Thirlmere is a beautiful place to stay and we were all amazed by the amount of space and how cosy the house is. We were impressed by the level of attention to details and how beautifully decorated the rooms were (especially the bedrooms). Although we only stayed a couple of nights, we could have easily spent more time there as the house is so comfortable and big. There is a huge dining room table which meant we could all fit around it for dinner, and plenty of sofas to lounge around without being in each others' way.

"Perfect holiday accommodation for a large family to enjoy."
Tremendous accommodation with an abundance of character and charm. The property is well maintained, its clean and exceptionally well equipped. Its very comfortable and ideally located close to all amenities. There is a lovely sandy beach in front of the property which is literally a stones throw from the house. Our party of 14 ranging in age from 3 to 61 thoroughly enjoyed their stay. The owners Denis and Mary made the holiday experience hassle free and could not have been more helpful.
