Short Break at Hythe

My wife Anne and I recently had a short break, just a couple of nights, at Hythe in Kent. We were able to spend some time with our daughter Gillian and her partner Daz, who live in the town.

We stayed at the Stade Court Hotel, on the seafront.

On the full day, we visited Ashford, and the two "antient towns" that were added to the Cinque Ports in the Middle Ages, Rye and Winchelsea, and also went down to Rye Harbour. In the evening, we had a meal at an excellent Wetherspoon`s in Folkestone.

The next day, we had a look at Sandgate Castle before returning to Folkestone and catching the train back to Leicester.

It was a very nice break.
