There is a wide variety of sporting and leisure facilities in the area including the Hotel Imperial Leisure Centre, cricket, bowling and lawn tennis clubs, 2 golf courses and sailing club.

There are two good primary schools in the vicinity and a Performing Arts School for ages 11 - 18. There are boys' and girls' grammar schools in Folkestone which are served by a free bus service from Hythe.

Hythe is very conveniently located for easy access to the M20, Channel Tunnel Terminal, ferry port of Dover, etc. Sandling main line railway station, approximately 2 miles away on the outskirts of Saltwood, offers regular commuter services to the City. (All distances are approximate). High Speed Link services to St Pancras are available at Folkestone West and Ashford International along with Eurostar services to Paris and Brussels at the latter.

Having been in the hands of the same owner for many years this substantial semi detached house has suffered from an extended period of neglect. It now requires complete refurbishment but presents an exciting opportunity to acquire a property which they can tailor to suit their own tastes and requirements. The house occupies a generous plot with a wide frontage of around 38 feet as the previous owners acquired an additional parcel of land to the side of the house many years ago. With this in mind there is considerable scope to extend the house (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained).

The accommodation currently comprises an entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, lean-to sun room, kitchen, three bedrooms, bathroom and separate w.c. There are gardens to the front, side and rear, the side and rear adjoining open fields at the foot of The Roughs which provide a delightful backdrop and open vista from the first floor. There is also considerable potential to create parking within the gardens, possibly also garaging (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained).
