This very pretty Grade II listed thatched cottage was originally the home of the village wheelwright and has only had 3 owners since it was built!  A delightful house comfortably sleeping 5 plus an additional child, it has a large fully enclosed garden with plenty of room for a game of football or cricket and for the family dog to let off steam.  Located on the edge of the rural village of Adisham, there are plenty of opportunities for country pursuits on the doorstep. If you are interested in joining a local Shoot this can be arranged by the Owner (in season) and the house has a secure gun cabinet and kennels in the garden for the gun dogs.  Howletts Wild Animal Park is a great day out for the family and is only eight minutes drive away, or venture just a few miles further to the cathedral city of Canterbury with its myriad of medieval streets, museums and cafe culture to enjoy.  Closer to hand there are lovely local pubs like The Griffin's Head at Chillenden or The Fitzwalter Arms in Goodnestone, where you can also visit beautiful Goodnestone Park gardens. Gibsons the  excellent farm shop with delicious local produce and a cafe is just 2 miles away.  If you would like a little luxury head to Broome Park golf and country club only ten minutes drive, where you can enjoy the leisure facilities with a heated pool or take in a round of golf.  However the most enjoyable option may just be to cosy up round the inglenook fireplace with your favourite tipple or a steaming mug of cocoa, after a ramble in the countryside.   Shop: 2   Pub: 3.3    Coast: 11

We had a very comfortable and pleasant stay with our family in Medgett's Cottage. Very peaceful and quiet. Canterbury, beaches and the Downs on the doorstep! Our boys really loved Dover Castle, a real gem! For local shopping we recommend Gibson's, only short drive away. Local produce, very good! Lots of nice pubs in the area. Need to come back again for more attractions around the area we missed. Much to do! Mrs Judith Dalm-Plug - 18th May 2018
