At the head of the Conyer Creek which leads off from the River Swale, is the idyllic haven of Swale Marina. Timber clad buildings with a slight North American theme blend in with the countryside which surrounds the attractive marina from all four quarters. The entire marina dries and provides around 200 mud berths on fully serviced pontoons and when the tide does come in, the marina can accommodate boats up to 2m draught. Visitors are very welcome here and they're entitled to use the adjoining club house which is usually open on weekends and provides hot food and drink.
For a yacht cruising this area the Swale Marina is well worth a visit. As part of the vast expanse of the North Kent Marshes, the area is renowned for its wildlife and is a favourite location for bird watcher and walkers. Indeed the famous Saxon Way passes around the marina leading the Gravesend to the west and all the way round to Hastings if you continued eastwards. Conyer village has a wooden theme to its houses and the local pub is just a short stroll away. The nearest shops and transport links are in Tyneham, about 1.5 miles to the south and the train station here is on the London to Dover line which passes through Canterbury, Chatham and Rochester.
