The property is right on the beach and ideally situated to visit lots of places. The Romney Hythe and Dymchurch little railway passes behind the property and is a great day out with children. Rye is nearby and Dover and Hastings are both within reach. The property is clean and well equipped and just right for a family.
We wanted an easy, relaxing but interesting half term break for the family and this was a perfect rental for us.
We found the house clean, cosy and welcoming. It has a large living/dining room to the front with long windows giving lovely light in the room and a unique skyline to greet you in the morning. Very relaxing and a perfect space for us all to 'hang out'. The kitchen is well fitted out and was spotless and adjacent to the dining area, so very easy to work in and serve up from. The three bedrooms are to the back and fitted out with all the family needed to snuggle up in what wasn't the warmest of half terms to be by the sea.
A special feature of the house is that it has a small gauge stream train light railway running past the bottom of the garden (The famous - I now realise! - Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway). Great entertainment for the kids, and cause of much excitement and regular expeditions down to the fence to wave this tiny train by (and no unsociable running hours, I am pleased to report!).
From the front of the house you walk across Coast Drive straight onto the beach. And if you want variety, there are lots of neighboring beaches within a short drive along the coast, non of them busy. That's the thing we found about Romney Marsh - the beaches, the pubs, the fantastic Port Lympne Zoo and even the lovely town of Rye aren't too busy. It is a very relaxing place to have a break. I would certainly recommend this house for a holiday home and a perfect base from which to explore this relatively unknown part of England.
Not as advertised. Dirty. Holes in the walls near the windows. Horrible bathroom, which explains the lack of photo. Black grout between tiles.
Not allowed to use the heading during the summer season, even when there's a Gale blowing through the windows.
I would never stay here.
