Description

SECOND LUXURY EN-SUITE BEDROOM AVAILABLE FOR 3RD ADULT AT £150 PER WEEK

The Cinque Port of Sandwich is arguably the best preserved medieval town in the country and The Short House and  The Long House - both under the same roof - are reputed to be the oldest inhabited houses in the town. Completely self-contained, with its own wonderful walled garden, pond and stone and flint built Custom House at the far end - The Short House combines centuries of history with unashamed luxury. The exquisite sitting room, sumptuous bedroom and porcelain floored en-suite will  be a haven of comfort after your days out exploring. This area is a golfers paradise - there are eight courses within a ten mile radius including the famous Royal St. Georges. Enjoy wonderful walks along the Saxon Shoreway and through Nature Reserves, or a day out on the lovely stretch of sand dunes and gently shelving beach. If you want some history - combined with great shopping - Canterbury is only ten miles away, with Broadstairs and Deal an easy drive for bracing promenade walks.
