Greatstone village is on the south east Kent coast between Folkestone and Rye, about one mile from the cinque port of New Romney on the Romney Marsh.

The village lies between farm land and a
nature reserve to the west and the sea, the English Channel, to the east.
It has a fine sandy
beach popular, with bathers, walkers and wind surfers alike.
