Travel Guide to holidays in... New Romney, Kent, England

New Romney is a small town on the perimeter of Romney Marsh in Kent, an area of land that has been reclaimed from the sea. Once a sea port, New Romney is now over a mile from the sea, but a mooring ring can still be spotted outside its impressive Norman church. In the second half of the 13th century a sequence of storms weakened the coastal defences of Romney Marsh, and the Great Storm of 1287 almost eradicated the town. The harbour and town were filled with sand, mud, silt and debris, and the River Rother changed direction to flow out into the sea near Rye, Sussex. The debris was never completely removed, and many of the old buildings, including the church, have steps leading down into them from the modern pavement level.

The town’s historic high street offers several small, interesting shops. The former almshouses in West Street are notable historic buildings of Kent. Founded in 1610 by John Southland, a prominent local magnate, they were rebuilt in 1734.

New Romney is the headquarters of the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway, a miniature mainline railway built for a millionaire racing driver in the 1920s. It still operates a full timetable, calling at the six stations from Hythe to Dungeness.

Other attractions in the area include: the Dungeness Lighthouse, with its superb panoramic views; the links golf course at Littlestone-on-Sea, once a favourite of Dennis Thatcher; Port Lympne Wild Animal Park; Dungeness Bird Observatory; Hever Castle; Dover Castle; the Royal Military Canal; and Leeds Castle. Other towns and villages nearby include Littlestone, Greatstone, St Mary's Bay, Lydd On Sea and Dymchurch.

Take a drive around Kent in summer and you’ll soon see why this lush and fertile county is called the Garden of England. But there’s much more to this beautiful county than horticulture and whichever of your holiday cottages in Kent you choose, you’ll have a wealth of attractions on your doorstep. A cottage holiday here gives you magnificent castles to explore, including the one at Leeds, which is perhaps the most beautiful in England. Dover Castle is also sure to impress. Kent is home to Canterbury too, with its magnificent cathedral, so redolent with history. Royal Tunbridge Wells harks back to the age of Georgian elegance - make sure you leave time for some shopping in the famous Pantiles. And there’s historic Rochester, famous for its castle and cathedral. All are an easy drive from our holiday cottages in Kent. If it’s fresh air and peaceful countryside you’re looking for or your cottage holiday in Kent, then the North Downs are ideal for walkers. For traditional seaside fun and games there are Margate, Ramsgate and Broadstairs, while the beach at Camber Sands is justly popular. Or why not pay a visit to Whitstable, and sample some of its famous oysters?
