A bird’s eye view and a peaceful spot in a quiet lane for those seeking the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
This 1930s style detached home has some subtle art deco touches from its native era that add a warmth and glamour to your abode. Adding to the house’s sun-trap spot on the hills of Hythe, it’s a hard place to leave once you’ve arrived. From its position in a quiet laneway, high above town the views towards the Kent coastline are fabulous and there’s just enough terraces to enjoy them over a glass over wine and a sunset before the lawns of the cottage’s garden slope away.
For a couple or two seeking a new perspective on Kent, this base on the outskirts of Hythe won’t disappoint. The living space is so comfortably considered. The open plan kitchen and dining room are naturally sociable whether you’re brewing coffee, making breakfast or after dinner treats. The sitting room proffers squishy sofas and armchairs, a roaring fire should you need it and really all that’s left is your choice of movie for a relaxing evening in. For those who need to catch up on emails or take calls during their stay, the study provides the perfect nook.
Exploring out and about in Hythe is really quite delightful. The town itself is a few minutes’ walk down the hill - be prepared for the wander back up! Enjoy your ice creams on Hythe beach for the day and you’ll be amply energised for the return climb. Also in town is the Royal Military Canal, which rather wonderfully has rowing boats for hire making for a fun afternoon’s meander like Rat and Mole might under the spell of E.H. Shepherd.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
The two first floor bedrooms at Quince Tree Cottage both enjoy a small balcony each and the beds are perfectly placed to soak up the view last thing at night and first thing in the morning. We know where we’d take our early morning brew. Once has a king size bed, the other a double and they share a bathroom with separate bath and shower.
The owner will not accept children under 12 years due to the balcony and layout of the terraces.

This is a beautiful property. Very clean and comfortable with all amenities to hand. The view from the verandah (and windows) is wonderful. After staying at a few cottages and the various settees always being past their best, one particular bonus was the three piece suite at Quince Tree cottage which is in excellent condition and very comfortable to sit on after being out sightseeing all day. Its also in a great location for walking into Hythe itself which has a variety of pubs and restaurants. The owner is a lovely host, very helpful and her lemon drizzle cake is delish! We didn't want to leave and would hope to return to Quince Tree cottage.Mrs Pamela McArdle - 20th September 2019
This is an excellent property with everything you would need for a stay of any duration. Well kept, clean and with great views out to sea. Within easy walking distance of the town. The owners are great hosts. Our second stay here and hope to be back soon.Mrs Wendy Vane - 31st August 2019
Very good service & a holiday cottage which was excellent. The interior was well maintained and a very high standard Mr stephen smith - 5th July 2019
First class accommodation, with very helpful owners. excellent in all respects.Mr Brian Cobb - 15th March 2019
It fulfilled all our expectations, and, because of its comfortable furnishings and superb views, was the perfect location to spend a relaxing week. Rev Paul Berrett - 15th October 2018
Wonderful cottage, outstanding view. Perfectly equipped kitchen, extremely comfortable beds, high quality linens. I particularly liked that although there were some nice wall decorations, the place wasn't cluttered by nik naks and ornaments. I also appreciated the study - handy place for the laptop, various essential paperwork, and journalling/crafting materials. I felt a bit tearful when I had to leave!Ms Geraldine Curtis - 8th October 2018
Our first stay with Kent and Sussex Holidays and the property was excellent. We stayed in Hythe which is a lovely town and we enjoyed walks along the military canal and taking The Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch railway to Dungeness. We also visited many gardens in Kent and went to Sandwich and Walmer Castle. We were welcomed by the owner and found the house comfortable, clean and of luxury standard with a large screen tv and WiFi. We loved the balconies with distant sea views and had a very relaxing holiday.Mrs Helen Robertson - 10th September 2018
This was by far the best holiday cottage we have stayed in, (and we have stayed in a lot!) with the owners having an exceptional approach to little “over and above” touches. There were fresh flowers, homemade cake, local pear juice and beautiful pots of bright geraniums on the balcony. Mrs Gill Linturn - 6th September 2018
The house was the best equipped we have stayed in. Excellently furnished, very clean and tidy. Great views out to sea and good access to the countryside nearby. Within walking distance to the town centre for shopping or food. Would recommend.Mrs Wendy Vane - 27th August 2018
Superb cottage in pristine condition. Everything has been provided that one could possibly need and the charming owners could not be more helpful. Unquestionably the best holiday accommodation that we have ever experienced and Hythe has so much to offer people of all ages.Mr Chris Lindsay - 20th August 2018
The property was absolutely charming.Mrs V Downing - 27th June 2018
It would have been helpful to know how narrow the access roads were. The off road parking was a god send.Mr Maurice Williams - 11th June 2018
We enjoyed the stay, good location, we lacked for nothing in the way of cutlery, crockery, etc. The kitchen well fitted and all the user manuals available for equipment supplied. Excellent. Hythe is a beautiful place to visit, lots of individual shops etc. Plenty of places to visit and a really nice unspoilt coastline. Joy to visit the seaside without penny arcades etc. not crowded even at Bank Holiday with good weather. We will go back, and will use the company again. ThankyouMrs Margaret Darby - 4th June 2018
The owner was charming and very helpful.Ms Diane Penney - 29th May 2018

Property owner was very helpful and friendly and the property was extremely comfortable making a very enjoyable holiday.Mr Colin Mills - 28th March 2018
One of most nicest and well equipped cottages we have stayed in. Fantastic location, beautiful views and a very well equipped and luxurious cottage.Mr Russel Howes - 19th February 2018
Very attractive and comfortable. Friendly, helpful owners. Mr Robin Broadfield - 31st August 2017
This was unquestionably the best cottage I have stayed in, my hosts were very helpful and left some lovely extras which were appreciated. Mrs V Hudson - 5th July 2017
A warm welcome from the owner, who was very helpful. A clean and comfortable property, everything provided was excellent quality.Mrs S Griffiths - 27th June 2017
An absolutely beautiful cottage, high standards throughout.Mr R Housan - 1st May 2017
This is a wonderful property, providing great style and comfort. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was the cleanest place I have seen, and every day was hugely relaxing. Just brilliant.Ms Jan Howlett - 4th November 2016
Immaculately equipped and spotlessly clean and tidy. Owners really helpful and friendly great people.Mr J Anderson - 4th October 2016
The property itself is absolutely beautiful. Presented in a fantastic way by an equally fantastic host who was adorable and the touches she puts in place to make your stay enjoyable are nothing short of fantastic.Mr Geoff Hunt - 12th September 2016
This was a really lovely property, beautifully presented and immaculate in every way. We really appreciated all the extras - not only the homemade cake, milk and local apple juice, but also the tin foil and cling film!Mrs C Lambert - 5th September 2016
