This property is part of our Welcome Cottages collection

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


This holiday property sits in an elevated position, with stunning coastal views and only 50 yards to the beach, it is the perfect seaside retreat.

Serena Cottage is a delightful, detached seaside property in an elevated position above the coast of Sandgate. Boasting sea views over to France from most rooms, you’ll almost feel that you’re afloat – without getting your feet wet whilst relaxing on the sofa! This is a fantastic location to enjoy a seaside holiday. Both bedrooms have private balconies, where guests are welcome to sit out and watch the sunset over the horizon, or admire the spacious landscaped garden that overlooks the channel. Originally the bath house to Encombe Manor, it has been lovingly restored and renovated by the present owners.
The open plan kitchen/dining room means that there is plenty of space to enjoy evening meals with friends and family. The large windows in the living room really make a feature of the stunning sea views.
Serena Cottage is located in Sandgate, where H.G. Wells (the famous author) once lived and where Hattie Jacques, the comedienne, was also born. Always worth a visit is Port Lympne Wild Animal Park, which is set in 600-acres. It is home to the largest herd of black rhinos outside Africa, as well as African elephants, tigers, lions and the world’s largest gorillarium ‘The Palace of the Apes’ and the African safari experience.
Another enjoyable way to pass the time is to take a 13½-mile ride from Hythe to Dungeness Lighthouse via Dymchurch and New Romney on the Romney Hythe and Dymchurch Steam Railway, which boasts one-third full-size steam and diesel locomotives. The Lower Leas Coastal Park at Folkestone is ideal for cycling.
There is golf, sailing and fishing locally. The Eurotunnel Exhibition is worth a visit and day trips to France are also possible. There are good high speed rail links to St Pancras station and the city of London from the local train station. A must whilst in Kent is a visit to the famous city of Canterbury, where you can explore the stunning cathedral and dominant city walls, shop along the cobbled streets and enjoy a city steeped in history. Beach 50 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    Perfect location for a small holiday cottage. Unfortunatley there was no real shower in it and the bed was a bit uncomfortable. But nevertheless it was well equipped for a short holiday.

    This cottage is beautiful and our holiday here exceeded our expectations we had a amazing time the decor is well thought trough and offers everything we needed with comfort and relaxation. The view are idilic and from all windows the garden and balcony we could see the French cost and weand we spent most we spent most evenings watching ships and boats sail past. Beautiful walks along the sea front and adventure playground a short walk away with Caffe. Idilic location.

    A stone's throw from the beach, loved swimming every day. The busy road and on road parking detracted from the overall location. Great to be able to walk along the promenade to Folkestone and Hythe. A washing machine and somewhere to dry towels, swim gear etc would have been welcome. Listed as having a bike store, but none available.

    Would suggest that this cottage isn’t good for people with limited mobility. Steps up to the cottage and garden on at least two levels
