New image will be posted when refurbishment is complete

The house is currently being renovated and will not be available for rental until Summer 2013

The house at Greatstone-on-Sea was originally built at the top of the beach. There are now sand dunes between the 3km sandy beach and the house which protect it from high tides.

With four bedrooms - two doubles, a twin and a single with bunk beds - the house can accommodate up to six adults and two children.

We use this house for summer holidays and barbecues and it has everything that you need for an amazing holiday on the beach with children or friends. Within a few hours you will be back in those days of childhood, sitting on the dunes with a mug of tea musing over the miles of sand and the rolling sea whilst the children fly kites on the beach.

If you feel like cooking there is a fully equipped modern kitchen complete with recipe books. If you want to watch a movie there is a separate TV room with a surround sound system, big screen TV, a DVD player and a hard disk drive with a library of dozens of films. When you want some electronic exercise there is a Nintendo Wii with two remotes and a balance board, so get fit whilst on holiday

The ground floor family room has direct access to the sand dunes and the beach through a garden which is a giant private sand pit. Young children will be entertained building sand castles all day without the need for constant attention.

Within the family room there is a separate 'library' area with hundreds of books. Amongst the books you will find descriptions of local walks, cycle rides and maps of the area. There are also guide books and leaflets of attractions within Kent.

If you want music, the hi-fi system has a CD player, a mini-disk player and a connection for your iPod/MP3 player. There is also broadband wi-fi available throughout the house.

When you arrive

You will be met and shown around by one of us and we will give you the full run down on how the house works and leave you with a free hamper of food that will include milk, bread, eggs, tea and coffee. There is a local supermarket, a newspaper shop and a chemist with a pharmacy just across the road and we would encourage you to shop there to support the local economy.

The local area

New Romney and Greatstone

Until the 13th century the river Rother flowed into the Channel at the port of New Romney. The entrance to the estuary had markers on each side, the Little Stone and the Great Stone.

Then, during 1287 severe storms caused the river Rother to change it’s course and New Romney became land locked. With no outflow of water the estuary silted up and left us with Littlestone and Greatstone.

If you are interested the history of the Romney Marsh have a look at the Rye Museum site or here is the Wikipedia reference .
