The towns of Rye, Folkestone and Dover are all within easy reach - and, while you're in the area, why not pop across to France for the day?

The Kent region
'The world, according to the best geographers, is divided into Europe, Asia, Africa, America and Romney Marsh.' In these words, the author of the Ingoldsby Legends provocatively suggests the extraordinary phenomenon of a 'fifth quarter of the globe,' and therein lies the magic and wonder of Romney Marsh.
The 'fifth quarter' is situated in the southern corner of Kent, and stretches on the seaward side from Hythe to Rye, and is bounded on the north by the Royal Military Canal, behind which is the irregular range of hills which mark the ancient coast line. It comprises some 50,000 acres, and is roughly ten miles broad and eighteen miles long. In point of fact, this area consists of three marshes, Romney Marsh proper, the largest and most easterly section, and the marshes of Walland and Denge, between New Romney and Rye.
Other corners of England may be better known for the magnificence of their scenery, but Romney Marsh has been famous for centuries as a place of infinite age, infinite mystery, and infinite peace.
In very early times this great tract of level land was one vast bay of the sea, over the waters of which vessels sailed up to the old fort and port where Lympne now stands. When Julius Caesar landed on the Kentish Coast he found a shallow estuary extending from the chalk cliffs at Fairlight to the ragstone hills at Lympne. At low tide this estuary became a stretch of muddy flats with occasional ridges of shingle and sandy islands deposited by the receding tides. As time went by these sandy islands became bigger, so that in Saxon days large tracts of land existed above high water level. This is proved beyond doubt by early Saxon charters and grants of land. To protect these sandy tracts from being washed away, skilful inning was carried out, massive earth walls were raised to resist the tide, and the natural shingle ridge along the shore was banked up so that gradually a drained and protected area came into being. During the wet season the streams from the hills brought down more soil, which spread itself over the sand and in time begin the growth of that rich green grass which has made Romney Marsh the envy of sheep graziers all over the world
Dymchurch is an old historic village set in the centre of a lovely bay, seven miles wide, sheltered by a range of hills which commands a magnificent view of the English Channel and its shipping. This delightful setting is set in the South Eastern corner of Kent, known as the Garden of England.
Dymchurch owes much of its popularity as a holiday destination to the many miles of firm golden sands, which are washed clean by every tide. At low tide the sea goes out for a considerable distance leaving a perfect playground for even the youngest visitor.
The village has many amenities including many small shops and cafes, a small supermarket, a post office, a funfair, amusements, and several public houses. There are frequent buses up and down the coast road, and the one-third-scale steam and diesel locomotives of the famous Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway, call at Dymchurch Station on their way from Hythe to Dungeness.
For those people who are desirous of a more quiet and peaceful holiday, Dymchurch is a convenient centre for exploring the historic Romney Marsh, especially for those who prefer to turn aside from the bustle of the modern age to the quiet lanes with their beauty, and thorn set dykes.
For those who love the past this village has unending interest, where one can find the Land of the Normans, and the Romans in the many works that have been unearthed around Dymchurch.
