Hints and Tips on Cottage Holidays in New Romney
New Romney is also the main station of the Romney Hythe and Dymchurch Railway, the world's smallest public railway. Why not take the train to visit Dungeness and its lighthouse, or the beaches of Dymchurch? The main station was built for a millionaire racing driver, and is also the home of the Romney Toy and Model Museum, with a good collection of old, and not so old, toys, games, dolls and other memorabilia. Each year, at the end of July, the New Romney Country Fayre takes place on St Martin's Field, with many stalls and activities, and a colourful parade through the High Street.
The present church of St Nicholas dates from 1066, and was one of five churches originally in the town. Romney Marsh has long been associated with smuggling, and the stories of 'Dr Syn' written by Russell Thorndike are set on The Marsh. Several of the old buildings in New Romney are said to have underground tunnels connecting to some of the pubs and St Nicholas Church. The smugglers would take wool to France and import brandy, all this took place under the cover of darkness to avoid the Customs and Excise men. The contraband was very often stored in Marsh churches or in the underground passages.
The Romney Marsh Visitor Centre is well worth a visit, with its exhibits about the natural and social history of Romney Marsh, and nature trails through a site of special scientific interest. The centre hosts regular family activities. A stay in New Romney is likely to appeal to those looking for a coastal self-catering stay in Kent. We hope you find good quality self-catering accommodation for you in or near New Romney.
