Encombe is situated almost midway between Folkestone and Hythe, set back from the seafront and enjoying south westerly sea views.The historic and popular village of Sandgate has a number of independent and antique shops, restaurants and bars. Hythe and Folkestone are approximately 2 miles away both offering good shopping facilities. Hythe has a Waitrose and a Sainsbury's store and a number of small shops, whilst Folkestone provides further entertainment with its bustling Harbour Arm, the charming Old High Street and the Creative Quarter with delightful eateries and boutique style shops. The harbour area is undergoing a major regeneration programme that will have a positive impact on Folkestone in the future.
