About The Nest

Retreat to the coast with the family in this very special chocolate box cottage. Nestled away and set back along a private lane in a privileged position along the seawall in Dymchurch.

Quite the spot for a visit any time of year with the beach accessible from a little gate at the end of the garden. Perfect for picnics on the beach and strolls along the endless promenade taking in the sea air. In the summer time why not take a dip in the sea and only a hop and skip back to your private garden for a BBQ.

As perfect in the summer as in winter, with all the homely creature comforts and a place to snuggle up with loved ones. Nestle by the log burning fire with a good book and delve into the comfortable sofa, a home to kick back and unwind in. Many guests come for the peace and tranquillity but for those wanting entertainment, nearby you will find a range of cafés, bars and the Amusement Arcades. If that is a little too far, why not don your cap and tie up the laces, bring out your rackets and out onto your very own Tennis court!
