Local area


The Grange is in the picturesque village of Saltwood – set in peaceful and pretty countryside – 2 miles from the sea.

The Annex is directly opposite the fields of Saltwood Farm through which the church grounds can be accessed. There is plenty of routes for rambling. In the village there is a local shop; The Castle Pub; and a bistro/restaurant Saltwood on the Green which offers brunch/lunch/dinner using locally-sourced produce and comes highly recommended!

Five minutes away is the Cinque Port town of Hythe with its beautiful canal, and pebble beaches where you can enjoy an icecream! There you will find many cafes and restaurants and some lovely quaint shops to explore. On the beach there is a fish market with it’s own cafe, Grigg’s – brunch on the beach is not to be missed!
