There are many scenic walks which can be taken from the village to the beach; the famous White Cliffs or to neighbouring villages. National Cycle Route 1 runs through the village as part of the Sandwich to Rye Route of NC1 & 2. The adjacent St Margarets Bay marks the closest point to France. A farmers market is held in the village every last Friday of the month between 9am and 12.30am. There is a good sized enclosed childrens play area in the village, a short walk from the cottage which caters for toddlers and older children up to approx 12 years.

“Comfy cottage in wonderful surroundings”

Reviewed 6 Dec 2016

Highly recommended. Very comfortable and warm in winter. Kitchen well equiped. But the real highlight is the amazing countryside and local cliff walks. The village was friendly and has a good local shop , otherwise Tesco is a 10 min drive. Will definately be returning !

“Just Perfect”

Reviewed 3 Aug 2013

It was everything we hoped for and more.A beautifully appointed cottage,everything spotless.The owner met us with the key and had even thought to leave some toys out for our grandson.I would recommend this cottage without hesitation

“Beautiful cottage located a mile from the seaside - perfect!”

Reviewed 24 Sep 2012

We were attending a wedding on the coast a mile from the cottage and chose to stay at the cottage based on the lovely pictures on the website. The owner made the booking process extremely easy and went out of her way to provide us with directions to the venue. The cottage itself was even nicer than the pictures. It is a beautifully decorated with a great layout. The rooms are large and the place is bright and airy with a long garden. We took my 1 year old son and he had a great time crawling around and enjoyed the toys that were thoughtfully left for children visiting. The road the cottage is on is quiet and peaceful and situated well for local conveniences and a few country pubs. The price was brilliant and we got much more for our money than if we'd stayed at a B&B. The cottage is one mile from the sea and there are steps down to the coast line (top tip...do not attempt to take a buggy down them unless you have good arm muscles!). There is a large Tesco nearby and the local fish and chips were a bonus! All in all a great stay in a lovely home in a great location.
