We currently live in Cambridge but have recently talked about moving to Kent (I grew up in Kent/SE London) and have thought about Hythe, mainly as it's by the sea! Does anyone live here/near here? If so what it's like to live there? much to do with children? thanks x

I live in Hythe. I have 2 children aged 5 & 2. I love living here. Have been here for 6years now. There are lots of good schools and loads of clubs, toddler groups etc. How old are your children?

In which case Hythe is a lovely place to live and raise your family. Lots of groups, lovely childrens centre, parks, zoo and of course the beach!

Drop me a line if you want any specific information or if you come for a visit. Loads of coffee shops I can recommend!

I lived in Hythe for a while. It was a lovely little town. I loved being on the seafront.

It was too far away from family and friends for us to settle there.

There were two other things that really got to me:

the wind! We'd look out the window, see a lovely sunny day. And then it would actually be really horribly windy. it really got me down. I think it's better as you move further along the coast towards Folkestone. like Sandgate.

The lack of a good near by Town. we'd go to Canterbury if we wanted to do proper shopping. But going out to do anything cultural of an evening was almost impossible. That really got us down.
