Restored and rebuilt from the original building of 1703, using eco-friendly materials, this stunning cottage is a delight! A bespoke Oak Front Door leads into the Sitting Room. Opened up to the ceiling, the massive English Oak beams provide the framework for a glorious space. Dual aspect, the French Doors lead onto your private patio at the rear, with views over the gardens beyond. The terracotta floor provides a warm base to the ambiance of the room. The furniture is an eclectic mix of new (comfortable sofa and cushions) and antique golden oak furniture. A large digital television with Freeview, DVD player, radio with i pod dock are supplied, along with a selection of films and music to entertain you. Uncluttered comfort has been the aim.

A bespoke Oak Front Door leads into the Sitting Room. Opened up to the ceiling, the massive English Oak beams provide the framework for a glorious space.

The furniture is an eclectic mix of new (comfortable sofa and cushions) and antique golden oak furniture. A large digital television with Freeview, DVD player, radio with i pod dock are supplied, along with a selection of films and music to entertain you. Uncluttered comfort has been the aim. The bedroom area has a beautiful English hand-crafted white wrought iron bed , with side tables to match. Pure wool rugs to warm your feet and luxurious bed linen, along with silk cushions and throws complement the antique wardrobe and dressing table. The overall effect is calm, tranquil and so relaxing. Step into the bathroom and you step into the 21st Century. Dominated by a huge walk-in shower, the bathroom is stylish and modern, highlighted by the vivid splash made by the soft, thick towels. A lit mirror for the ladies and an eco-friendly hairdryer is incorporated along with stylish accessories to complete the effect. The solid oak kitchen is fitted with a washing machine, fridge with freezer compartment, dishwasher, microwave, and oven with ceramic touch-control hob and extractor. A larger freezer, ironing board and iron, tumble dryer and space for suitcases is provided in The Old Bakehouse opposite the cottage, along with the recycling boxes. You even have a water filter jug! An apron to protect your clothes, blender, hand-mixer, bean to carafe coffee machine, there are so many thoughtful items in the kitchen to help make your break easy. Wedgewood china, delicate glassware – home from home! A delightful room in which to cook and enjoy conversation over a glass of wine- if you don't fancy cooking, we have a range of home-cooked frozen meals, perfect after a day out. Since opening in 2009, we have consistently been awarded 4* Gold award with Visit England. New for this year, Nespresso coffee machine. More

Interaction with guests
We live on the same site as the cottages, and will be here to greet you personally, and acquaint you with the cottage and surroundings. We are more than happy to have a chat with guests, and equally happy to leave them alone if that's what they want! We have found over the year that many guests have became friends, and we have met some truly lovely people.

About the neighborhood
Ideally situated to visit all that our area has to offer. Dover Castle, Deal Castle, Walmer Castle, all within 20 minutes. The seaside towns of Ramsgate, Margate with the Turner Contemporary Gallery and Dreamland, Broadstairs with Charles Dickens house, Whitstable with it's oysters and great harbour area - (I could go on!) all within 20-30 minutes. Just down the road (3 miles) is Sandwich, a fantastic mediaeval town with the most timber framed building in England. Inland there is Canterbury, the seat of Christianity with it's marvellous cathedral and St Augustine's Abbey. Not to mention Tenterden, Tunbridge Wells, all worth a visit. Sissinghurst and Scotney have wonderful gardens, and there are several large shopping outlets too.
Getting around
We have a 20 minute bus service from a stop 50 yards from the cottages, running to Canterbury, Deal and Sandwich. From there you can reach Whitstable and surrounding areas
