Description

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.

Practicalities

The owner will not accept children under 12 years due to the balcony and layout of the terraces.

Reviews

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 M,

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.
