Westmarsh is a village in East Kent, England, between Canterbury and Ramsgate.

The village sits within a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. The old way out inn pub is now a thriving tea shop and the hamlet sits within orchard filled countryside and is very close to Canterbury and the Coast. Westmarsh is a quiet hamlet with a close community and is a wonderful place for children to grow up.

Westmarsh is one of the last unspoilt areas of kent with a wealth of (sometimes very rare) wildlife and abundant natural beauty. The 'Way Out Inn' was previously 'The Rose Inn' and Reg and Pat Sinden were the landlords. Mr and Mrs Mays brought the pub when it was closed and changed the name to the Way Out Inn.Mr & Mrs Hoare took over as landlords prior to the Inn closing down.

The village society is highly active and revolves around the village hall where regular community events are held. The village has a number of important historic buildings including a fine example of a Tudor country house, Wingham Barton Manor, and one of the oldest surviving isle barns in the country, Barton Barn.
