Description

This enchanting cottage is hidden away on a stunning private estate on the edge of the picture perfect village of Wickhambreaux.  It is a romantic, magical bolthole for two that offers luxurious accommodation, within its own secret herb garden behind a high yew hedge, in beautiful private grounds that open onto meadows and the lakes beyond.  There is a tennis court and cedar wood pavilion for guest's use and nineteen acres of beautiful formal gardens, complete with sunken garden, rose garden, a Koi carp stream and meadow with a hammock under the trees to while away a lazy afternoon.  Wickhambreaux is delightfully located on the Little Stour river complete with an impressive five storey water mill, village green with many charming period properties and an excellent pub only five minutes walk from the cottage.  For a fascinating day out the city of Canterbury - a Unesco World Heritage site, is only a few minutes drive away, with its stunning cathedral, many museums, great shopping and wonderful cafes and restaurants scattered throughout the winding medieval streets.
