The Seahouse is a light, airy, ‘beach-style’ detached holiday property built in the grounds of Encombe Manor and nestling into the cliffs. It commands uninterrupted breathtaking views across the sea to France – viewable on a clear day! French doors fold completely back to open onto a huge decked terrace running the full length of the house - ideal for al fresco barbecues on balmy summer evenings, whilst on winter days guests can observe the full power of the ocean from the warmth of the living room. A further feature of the house is a small balcony off the upstairs bedroom which has its own en-suite wet room. Communal wi-fi can also be found on site.
The Seahouse 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 and 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. Shops and pub ½ mile.
