The Bird Hide
For the perfect escape from busy life Bird Hide is set in a wonderfully rural location, yet within 3 miles of the wonderful coastal town of Folkestone. Enjoy lazy summer days on the beach, walking the nearby White Cliffs of Dover or bring your wellies for a blustery countryside walk and take a stroll to the nearby country pubs. And to relax those tired legs afterwards enjoy a luxurious bubbling hot tub with your own sound system and soothing lighting. Let the stresses of day to day life drift away whilst enjoying a glass of something cold. At the end of a busy day sink into a luxurious king size bed in the sumptuous bedroom - we can promise you won't want to leave!

In The Area
Until the turn of the millennium Folkestone Harbour Arm was a key transport hub linking Folkestone and mainland Europe. Following the re-opening to the public in 2014 it has become established as a favourite food, drink and entertainment destination. The former railway station and ferry terminal have been wonderfully restored to reflect the heritage of the site, including its role as an embarkation point for millions of soldiers in WW1. The Harbour Arm offers unrivalled views of the fishing harbour and the wider coastline, including the famous White Cliffs, and has wonderful spaces to enjoy the fresh sea air. You can walk from Folkestone along the coast to Sandgate, and Hythe beyond, and take in the quaint seaside towns which offer antique shops, cafes, eateries and much more.
With so much in Folkestone and surrounds to enjoy you will have a busy time exploring. The neighbouring town of Hythe also has the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch miniature railway, the military canal with romantic boat hires and Port Lympne Wild Animal Reserve.
Folkestone is located by the Eurotunnel in Cheriton and also the Dover docks - both within 15 minutes drive. London is less than 1.5 hours drive away and trains go in to Ashford International directly, with connections to Folkestone Central.
