A weekend at Cabü by the Sea

(*ad press stay)

You’d be forgiven for not having the beautiful seaside Kent hideaway, Cabü by the Sea, on your radar already…

Tucked away along St. Mary’s Bay- a stone’s throw from Dymchurch and Romney Marsh; drive over 30mph (never an issue with yours truly) and you’ll miss it tucked away from the road and cuddled up along the coast. You might be familiar with the modular cabins from a scroll on Instagram; their striking silhouettes peppered along the sea wall and contrasting with the stark landscape next to the ocean. And it feels, as soon as you drive into the turning, that you’re in your own little escape; with just the rabbits and dog walkers passing by behind the gate for company.

And what an escape it is- if you’re after a beautiful pocket less than a couple of hours away from London this feels like it ticks plenty of boxes…







With each cabin equipped with a full kitchen (our microwave doubled up as a convection oven which blew my tiny mind), bedroom (or two, with room for a travel cot) and the cosiest beds with floor to ceiling windows (which means sunrise breakfasts and cosying from the rain are all the more glorious); it’s the perfect bolt hole. Whether you fancy staying put with some films, games and a fire as the rain comes down- or heading out to make the most of everything on your doorstep…







…And thankfully/ they’ve thought of that too. With bikes available to hire so you can explore the coastal path, it’s also a short drive from a number of wonderful little person friendly sights and beautiful beaches. From the sandy stretches of Camber Sands, Dungeness, Rye, Port Lympne and the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch railway being just a handful (so much so we definitely could have stayed at least two nights more to soak up everything). There’s also an outdoor pool (which is heated; but still a bit fresh), sauna and hot tub available for some true r&r- with a deliciously tempting Cabü shop where you can pick up everything from fresh, local dinner and breakfast supplies and pastries, games, books, all the things you didn’t realise you needed but now *need* and obligatory ice cream for pudding at your cabin, too.






And if that wasn’t enough, it’s both child (and environmentally) friendly too. With bunk beds, travel cots, highchairs and a children’s pool available (as well as snacks, toys and pouches at the Cabü shop)- everything really has been been thought of (there’s also a supermarket a stone’s throw away too for any extras you might need). All making it truly feel like a little home away from home and a really special place to enjoy the Kent coast; whatever the weather.
