About Marine Parade

"To get under the skin of its seaside charm, book a period cottage. Marine Parade is a real find, and one of Mulberry Cottages' gems. A beautiful four-story Regency house, it is teaming with original features and tons of character. Antique furniture and quirky antiquities are dotted everywhere." - Forbes Magazine (August, 2017)

Enjoy the fresh sea air as you arrive in Hythe. Take a few steps up to your new home for a well earned break or holiday.

Once you enter, your sight will be drawn through to the traditional dining room, through the garden windows to the promenade and the beach. You will hear the waves breaking on the shore, you are at the seaside!

The house offers fine views from both sides out to see Dungeness and the coast-line of Romney Marsh frame one aspect. Occasionally France can be glimpsed in the distance. Often the sea is alive with small craft. On the landward side across the cricket ground there are views of the old Cinque Port town of Hythe with the 11th century Church of St Leonards.

Asian influences and traditional English antiquities add substance and intrigue throughout the house and you can see much of the owners' attention to detail in providing an atmospheric home for families and others to enjoy.

Marine Parade with its four floors gives you that feeling of space wherever you are in the house. We invite you to explore, finding bedrooms and bathrooms at almost every level. The lower floor offers a games room for children and others to enjoy with ping pong and board games. It is the perfect play den to keep children amused for hours, while adults can watch the boats pass by from the living room balcony with binoculars in hand or relax with a book from the well-stocked library.

For those of you who can be pulled away during your stay, a short stroll down the landscaped tree-lined Ladies Walk will take you to the Royal Military Canal and into the picturesque High Street and to the town's choice of shops and supermarkets. You will also find seafront cafes, restaurants and fisherman's shacks and even the miniature railway just close by. A great seaside location!

What makes this area
So special...

Hythe in Kent is one of the five original Cinque Ports (pronounced sink, as in Norman French) on the "Garden Coast" in South Kent. A wide promenade overlooks a long stretch of beach, and over the English Channel to France and it is ideal for a summer picnic and safe bathing. Hythe has a large choice of cafes and restaurants to choose from, but nothing beats fish and chips by the beach, fresh from the harbour, washed down with some bubbly
