The Property

Beachfront self-catering holiday apartment accommodation in Hythe, Kent – close to the Eurotunnel

Meet your hosts

Welcome to The Beach Escapes!

We are Sophie and Jon Durrant, the owners of The Beach Escapes. We are very fortunate that this wonderful property has been in our family for many years – until recently it was run as a very successful B&B by Sophie’s parents, Paul and Penny, who retired in 2021.

We have created five luxury apartments which have been designed, furnished and equipped to the very highest standard.

As a young family we love to travel and experience new places, so we set out to create a home-from-home environment that guests with the same passion for exploring could enjoy whilst discovering all that Kent, the Garden of England, has to offer.

We live only a few minutes from the property, and you may spot us on an early morning run along the promenade, paddle boarding on the sea (when it’s calm!) or enjoying a glass of wine with Paul and Penny, who live next door to The Beach Escapes.

Your apartment - what to expect


Each living area features a double memory foam mattress sofa bed. If requested, it will be made up for you on arrival.

Each living area boasts a Smart TV with a sound bar that can be connected to your phone so you can play your own music within the lounge. There is also a Smart TV in each of the bedrooms.

Our living areas are individually designed and hugely comfortable – perfect for enjoying a book, glass of wine or board game!

The Pantry

It’s so frustrating when you pop to the shops and forget those simple things… so to try to help our guests relax during their stay we have designed a small communal pantry with a few home comforts (including beer, wine and bags of ice) that guests may need during their stay – some items are provided as gifts and others on an honesty basis.
