This 16th-century timber-framed farmhouse was perhaps built as a result of the great fire of 1514 which destroyed most of what was then the port of Smallhythe. The upper floor of the house jetties out on the front façade and at one end. The interior has exposed oak beams and a brick floor and large fireplace in the dining room which was originally the farmhouse kitchen. Smallhythe was bought by the actress Ellen Terry in 1899; she lived here until her death in 1928.More pictures of Smallhythe Place by Paul Johnson
