Things to do With Grace

Smallhythe Place

Built in the early 16th-century when Smallhythe was a thriving shipbuilding port, Smallhythe Place was later purchased by renowned Victorian actress, Ellen Terry, in 1899.

A year after her passing in 1928 her daughter, Edith Craig, transformed the house into a museum which now displays a fascinating personal and theatrical collection that reflects Ellen’s extraordinary career and unconventional private life.

Located around 12 minutes drive from Tenterden and Rye it is also close to Chapel Down the renowned vineyard.

If you are looking for a quiet place to stay in the area that is generally very quiet and child free with parking then have a look at which is a short drive away in Rye.
