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.

Cottage cuteness

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.


Hot, Sunny and Mild - Perfect week! We visited Port Lympne Wildlife Reserve, The lion and bear cubs were so cute. We walked to Folkestone and to Unit One along the canal. Fantastic cottage! from the view from the balcony, the small gestures like bird feeder and plants. Not forgetting the lemon cake!! We had a memorable and relaxing time, thanks so much.

Previous Customer,

Super equipped cottage - the beat! We walked around Port Lympne Nature Reserve and saw the giraffes, wildebeest, zebra, antelope and wild dogs. We also enjoyed The Food and Drink Festival and a walk to Folkestone. We had an excellent week - Thank you.

Sue & P,

We keep coming back, because this is a great place to stay! We met up with family and friends did some barbequing. We especially enjoyed one morning having breakfast on the beach with very few people around. Quince Tree Cottage has everything you would want. Many thanks.

Previous Customer,

Beautiful Cottage in an excellent location. We took a trip on the RH&D Railway. We visited Canterbury and Rye also Walmer Castle in Deal. A most relaxing week thank you.

Paul & T,

We enjoyed walks along the promenade enjoying coffee at The Waterfront. We also visited The Leas in Folkestone. A really great week in a lovely house. Thanks for making us so welcome and for the cake and flowers etc. Probably the best equipped house we've ever stayed in! We really enjoyed the verandah in the sunshine. We hope to be able to return soon.

Richard & F,

The first few days were sunny and dry, then rain and drizzle, but warm for the time of year. We enjoyed walking along the promenade and canal for hours. We also walked along the lanes, alleyways and minor roads near the house, looking at the architecture. Absolutely delightful house, warm comfortable with everything you could possibly need. It was beautifully decorated for Christmas. The cake, milk, welcome gifts and other little touches were much appreciated. Thank you.

Anita & V,

Lots of walking along the promenade! We visited Folkestone, Rye to see the Aircraft RAF museum Battle of Britain. We have again enjoyed a wonderful stay at Quince Tree Cottage. Lovely hosts who are always so ready to help. We had everything we could ask for. We will be back again next year!. Thank you

Yvonne & D,

Great location, very comfortable accommodation with everything you need. Off road parking an added bonus. Walking distance to the town with plenty of places to eat.

Mr K,

Fantastic property about 5 mins from the high Street. It's elevated position means there are walking cut throughs which are fairly steep. Excellent abundance of pubs and restaurants in the high street. Fantastic views from the property. Very homely and comfortable.

Mrs C,

Exceptional property in a beautiful location. The property had everything you needed and gives you all of the home comforts you need. Highly recommendable.

Mr A,

This is a beautiful property in a great location maintained to the highest standards. There are lots of lovely little personal touches I haven’t seen in other places. You wouldn’t have to bring anything if you didn’t want to.

Ms T,

Holiday home an absolute dream. Everything top quality and luxurious- didn’t want to leave. Couldn’t have chosen anything better.

Mrs W,
