Lovely 2 Bed home in Hythe, England

Our bungalow is part of a large Edwardian house that was converted into individual dwellings many years ago. We are in the 'lodge', which is separate from the main house, with its own parking and garden. The sitting room has a lovely picture window that looks out towards the sea, which can be glimpsed through the linden and bay tree. There is a double and a single bedroom, a small but cheerful kitchen, bathroom and toilet. The garden has a Mediterranean feel, with palms and vines. There is a comfortable seating area with shade from the sun and a barbecue for the evenings. The Royal Military canal is a few minutes from the door, with walks going all the way up into Romney Marsh. The sea is less that 5 mins walk, and the area has a blue flag rating. We have two kayaks which it may be possible to borrow.
We are just outside Hythe, where there is a Waitrose, a Sainsburys and local shops. It's a 20 minute walk or 5 mins by bicycle down the promonade (which is also great for roller-skates, scooters, etc). Folkestone and the Creative Quarter are a short bus or car ride, or 20 mins on the bike. The white cliffs are also easy to get to by car, as is Dover castle, Port Lympne wildlife park, Dungeness and the RSPB centre. Day trips to France are also a possibility with the tunnel and the ferry a short ride a way.
We are easy to get to both by car and train (Folkestone West).
The place is ideal for two or three people, but could take 2 adults and 2 children with a bit of juggling of space.
