Channel View

Folkestone | Kent
Embrace the vibrancy of coastal sunsets, the scent of wild fauna across the hills and the tranquillity and peace in this trendy, hotel inspired chalet set high up on the hills overlooking the sea of Dover to Folkestone.
With uninterrupted views across the channel take some well-deserved ‘me-time’ with a solo break or whisk your beloved away for a romantic sojourn (with room for your loyal pooch too).​

Welcome the day with yoga on your private south facing terrace before brewing a pot of rich coffee to enjoy under the porch watching as the world slowly wakes up. Just a short walk (20 mins) down to the beach, fill your days with lashings of seaside air, local treats and Kentish bubbly. For some romantic inspiration, stargazing in summer will be a dream, whilst in winter months there's nothing better than winter walks in wellies with your dog by your side, or add on access to the hot tub spa and admire the roaming pot belly pig and pony from the comfort of steaming hot water. Many may just wish to curl up on the comfy sofas with the complimentary fizz in hand awaiting your evening meal delivery or rustle up a simple meal using the air fryer / microwave. A hotel inspired service with a smile is on hand to collect your tray of evening plates and glassware which is readily returned for you in the morning. Now that's good service!

New - have afternoon tea arranged for a loved one, may you'd like balloons on arrival or a present laid out ready on the terrace. Whatever your occasion allow us to prepare an unforgettable stay for you.

In The Area

Lazy days will drift by as lovebirds enjoy gentle jaunts to the coast or country rambles, so rare is it to find the two entwined in one location while four-legged friends bound alongside with joyous abandon in the enclosed paddock garden. The coast path is a twenty minute walk away and possibly one of the most spectacular viewings spots on the coast. The Warren is an all year pet friendly beach and cockles and winkles and crabbing catching can be enjoyed before your journey back home. Folkestone is home to the Sunny Sands, a small but lovely light sandy beach, with arches that go back to Victorian times. The beach can be enjoyed at varying points to see the tides as they draw right up to the arches and reach back out far into the bay. The harbour offers a choice of eateries, cafes and ice cream shop as well as the renowned Rocksalt wine bar and restaurant (bookings are a must!) The new Harbour arm is a walk back in time to see and experience life in war time when the troops were collected by ships to sail into battle. The entire Dover to Folkestone coast is packed with war time history. Today the arm is full of trendy street stall cafes, wine bars and entertainment. The old high street and the creative quarter welcomes you to some trendy shops and art galleries. With so much in Folkestone to enjoy you will have a jam packed weekend and for those looking to see more the neighbouring town of Hythe has the miniature railway, the military canal with romantic boat hire and Port Lympne animal reserve park. In the winter months you can watch the weather change from the inside Channel View, and get great views of the storms and windy seas! Channel View really is an all year round place to stay.

Folkestone is located by the Eurotunnel in Cheriton and also the Dover docks - both within 15 minutes drive from Channel View. London is less than 1.5 hours drive away and trains go in to Ashford International directly then taxi or into Folkestone Central. Please note additional fees of £35 per session for hot tub use will apply on booking.

Do yourself a favour and book Channel View   5/5
"Our hosts were the most lovely and attentive hosts ever, they were so helpful and the place was absolutely stunning, perfect for our week getaway! the grounds were beautiful with a spectacular garden and hot tub (which was the perfect end to some great days) I’ve already talked about booking again for next year as we had such a good time! If you’re unsure about where to go for your holiday/staycation do yourself a favour and let it be here you’ll have the nicest time, and book at least 2 nights in the hot tub too I promise you’ll want more than 1!"

Lovely Getaway   5/5
"We stayed at Channel View with two dogs for 2 nights. Had a great welcome, everything was thought about for us and the dogs. The homeowners are very friendly and makes you feel at home. The place is immaculate & the views are breathtaking, if I could attach a picture of the sunset I would."
Daniella Venema  |  16 September 2021
"Channel View proves that you don't need to fly away to another country to find idyllic oasis. Our two night mini-moon really has made our wedding weekend even more memorable. With breath-taking views of the channel on one side, and views of the rolling North Downs on the other, its hard to believe we are a 20 minute drive away from our home. The house is decorated beautifully and with the hot tub, this stay really has felt like luxury. But most of all its the warmth and friendliness of Sonia & Lee that's made this gorgeous space feel like home. Thank you for having us and we have already planned to come back every anniversary! So see you all again next year!"

Tia & TJ  |  27 April 2022
"Dear Sonia & Lee, this place is just perfect! Its like a little spot of secret heaven. You are honestly the best hosts we have come across and as mentioned many times before in this book, you have thought about every detail and we've had everything we could possible need. You've been so welcoming and also made us feel like we've got all the privacy in the world! Its a hard balance to get but you've got it just right but you've got it just right! Thank you for such a beautiful stay. We've already said we'd like to return in the warmer weather!"
