Description

Sitting at the end of a private drive in a lovely garden, is this charming single storey cottage for two.  This spacious studio enjoys lovely views across farmland to the village church and a footpath across the fields leads from the end of the driveway.  Take a pretty country walk through the fields and bluebell woods to the Duck Inn at Pett Bottom famous for being a regular haunt of Ian Fleming author of James Bond.  Or hop on the bus straight into the centre of Canterbury, just a few minutes away and discover this wonderful medieval city, famous for its stunning cathedral and a buzzing and vibrant tourist destination offering fabulous cafes, restaurants, artisan shops, museums and historic buildings to discover.  The local countryside is full of pretty villages and beautiful gardens to visit and the popular seaside towns of Whitstable and Hythe are both under half an hour's drive away. If you just want to head to the local pub for a delicious meal then The Granville is under 100 yards from the house and has a great menu and Shepherd Neame beers - plus they offer a discount for our guests.  Shop: 0.6 miles  Pub: 100 yards    Coast: 11.3 miles

Reviews

One of the nicest and most relaxing cottages we have ever stayed in. The owners were very hospitable and friendly. Mrs Natasha Benson - 10th October 2018
It suited me perfectly, was in a good location for exploring east Kent, and the owners were very friendly. I felt really 'at home' there.Miss Sara Fletcher - 20th August 2018
The property has an open-plan lay-out with the Bedroom and Living Room combined. However, this provides a spacious feel and was what sold it to me from the photos originally. My wife had slight reservations about this aspect beforehand but none in actuality. Having booked with Kent and Sussex Cottages for 4 consecutive years in different locations we have a good idea of what to expect. This year's scored particularly highly with minor features such as the plentiful bathroom 'Lotions and Potions' and the largest of all 'Welcome Packs'. The property, located on the B2068 ( ie A relatively major road)was very quiet but that much easier to travel from and to each day without having the challenge of previous very narrow roads for us 'townies'!!! We did not do all our possible visits and may well return to the Canterbury area again and would definitely book the same property again.The owners were very personable and welcoming. Of the 4 properties booked to date this is my favourite and my wife's 2nd favourite...and by far the best weather!!! Mr S Hunt - 10th July 2018
Definitely above standard! Surpassed our expectations! Mr Arnim Backofen - 9th July 2018
A welcome pack was provided consisting of milk, bread, eggs, fruit juice, biscuits and confectionary nibbles; much appreciated. Everything was above and beyond our expectations.Mr JOHN HALL - 17th June 2018
Ideal location to tour East Kent. Cottage extremely comfortable, very friendly owners- Welcome pack much appreciated. For us the cottage was excellent in every respect, attention paid to detail. First class.Prof JOHN PRESLEY - 27th May 2018
We would like to say how helpful the owner was. The welcome basket was also very generous and we felt extremely welcome in the accommodation.Mr Graham Dodd - 10th April 2018
