Hidden away up a private drive in beautiful landscaped grounds is the cosy and endearing Bumble Bee Cottage. Surrounded by the gardens of a listed 16th century manor house and standing within its own secret herb garden surrounded by a high yew hedge is this secluded, romantic and tranquil escape made for two, complete with log burning stove. Wander through the stunning grounds, past the Koi carp stream and sunken garden to the tennis court and cedar wood pavilion available for guest's use. Or while away some hours with a good book in the hammock under the trees. Wickhambreaux village is a picturesque English village surrounded by water meadows, with a pub on the village green, beautiful period properties, thatched cottages and a water mill on the meandering Little Stour river. The medieval city of Canterbury is only five miles away, with a whole host of museums cafes and restaurants, or head for the coast where you will find miles of sandy and pebble beaches, traditional seaside towns and artisan shops aplenty.
