From the Napoleonic era, this lovely cottage has wood floors, set on the Royal Military Canal, ideal for canoeing.

Situated on the Royal Military Canal and beside Iden Lock, The Lock Cottage dates back to the Napoleonic era, when it was used as officers’ quarters. The lock itself was completed in 1808 whilst this detached, single-storey holiday cottage was built in 1824. Iden Lock is no longer a working lock; the last barge passed through it in 1909, the receipt for which was signed by Spencer Catt who had been the lock keeper since 1890. He was the great great great grandfather of The Lock Cottage’s current owner. Guests can paddle their canoe from Iden Lock to West Hythe or hire rowing boats at Hythe. Fishing and walking available. Camber Sands 5 miles. Rye, Appledore and shops 3 miles.

    Fantastic, exactly what we were looking for. Perhaps adding a WIFI would be a good idea.

    It was a lovely cottage in a peaceful location on the banks of the canal. Although it is isolated it is conveniently situated for places to visit. Unfortunately we were not blessed with good weather, if we had been, we would have appreciated it even more
