The Prince of Wales is a minute’s walk from our site and serves as a perfect clubhouse for our residents. It offers a traditional family-friendly pub atmosphere, with a wide range of beers, great food and live music.
The world-renowned Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway (RHDR) runs directly behind our park, providing great entertainment for the children (and many adults!) who dash down to watch it steam past, from the safety of the fenced play area. The line begins in Hythe, snakes through the beautiful Marshland – with several stops, including Dymchurch – en route and ends at Dungeness. Go online to book or simply turn up and buy tickets at the office, which is only a 20 minute walk along the towpath from the park. www.rhdr.org.uk
Hythe, a Cinque Port town, has an amazing array of sights and activities to suit all tastes and ages. It offers visitors vast swathes of open countryside and marshland – not forgetting the beach, with its long promenade, stretching all the way to Sandgate.
If it’s an active seaside holiday you’re after, there’s a choice of water sports, including kayaking and kite surfing. And, just a few minutes’ walk from our park, you’ll find a hidden gem: the beautiful Royal Military Canal, which snakes through the tranquil countryside – all the way into town.
Hythe has a quaint town centre, which boasts one of the longest high streets in the country, with a selection of boutiques, antique shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants.
Take a long walk along the leafy paths of Brockhill Park. It features a lake, play ground and a cafe, offering a wide selection of vegetarian and vegan cuisine. Brockhill Country Park
And don’t forget France! If you’re looking for something a lot faster than the RHDR – and with a very different destination – you can head to Ashford, board the Eurostar and arrive in Paris by lunchtime. www.eurostar.com/uk-en
Otherwise, head onto the M20 towards Folkestone, board your car onto the Eurotunnel and enjoy a day trip to Calais. www.eurotunnel.com If you like to keep your head above water, then continue down the M20 and catch a ferry from Dover.
