About Springhaven

Springhaven is a beachfront holiday home steps from the sand. The expansive self-catering property sleeps 10 people in five bedrooms and is perfect for big families, extended families, or close friends who don't want to be more than a short stroll from the sand. This is the sort of place where you can park the car and forget about driving for the duration of your stay. The house is a mere two-three minute walk from the 16th Century Ship Inn pub and only a 10-minute jaunt from the centre of Dymchurch and shops, cafes and other amenities.

Dymchurch is a traditional seaside village that has been a family favourite for generations. In addition to the vast sand and shingle Blue Flag beach, which you can access via a gate from the cottage, it has a seafront amusement park and the heritage Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Miniature Railway. Springhaven's location is not only beautiful; it's extremely convenient for a family holiday. Forget loading up the car with everything but the kitchen sink - you can spend all day, every day on the beach, popping home for an extra beach chair, a drink or if you have young children who need a nap.

Days out can include driving ten minutes to either New Romney or Hythe. These towns have a wider choice of places to eat, drink and shop. The Military Canal passes through Hythe and is a popular walking and cycling route. Alternatively, go to Port Lympne Zoo, a mile drive inland from Hythe; or drive a little further to the lively coastal town of Folkestone with a busy harbour and restaurants. A trip on the steam train to Dungeness is especially thrilling for younger guests, with everyone enjoying a walk through the nature reserve to the landmark lighthouse. Historic Canterbury and Dover are both around 45-minutes by car from Springhaven, opening up even more sights and places to eat, drink and shop. You could even pop over to Calais for the day, with the Channel Tunnel being only a 20-minute drive from the cottage.

Springhaven is fully-equipped for self-catering holidays. There is plenty of space inside and outdoors where families and friends can relax and enjoy a seaside holiday at any time of the year.
