Pricing From: £349.00

Sea Holly is a charming period cottage nestled into Hythe's picturesque hillside within the conservation area, with lovely views over the town and to the sea beyond. Hythe's many attractions are a short stroll away and it is a pleasant 12 minute walk to the beach.

The landscaped garden is a delightful space for summer living, with sea glimpses and seating areas amongst the tall grasses and tropical planting. The cottage is a well equipped and comfortable retreat from the bustle of the town and sea front, yet is only a short stroll to shops, pubs and restaurants, with little need to use a car.

The Cinque Port of Hythe has changed little over the years, with its narrow streets and passageways complemented by historic buildings, public gardens, the Royal Military Canal and the expansive sea front promenade.
