The Malthouse - Hythe

Malt House Hythe

If your visit includes a Friday or Saturday, you may like to drive about 22 miles to Hythe's famous indoor market with some 37 stalls selling antiques, bric-a-brac and collectors' items, and visit the garden café.

It is called The Malthouse, and was converted by us in 1974.

Find it at the Ashford end of the High Street. Have lunch at the Malthouse Café (as we often do) and stroll around Hythe, another of Kent's historic Cinque Ports. see: Hythe Town -
