Fig Cottage is an ideal rural retreat for couples and small families looking for everything from outdoor pursuits to city visits.

Nestling at the foot of the North Downs is Fig Cottage, a detached, listed former farm building. It resides within the owner’s 8-acre grounds and small holding, including a vineyard which guests are free to enjoy. This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty provides access to footpaths and cycle routes, enabling you to explore the glorious, rural surroundings and enjoy horse riding and golf nearby. Fig Cottage is ideally located for exploring Canterbury, just 9 miles away, where the skyline is dominated by its historic cathedral and is the oldest in England. For a day at the coast, towns such as Whitstable famous for its oysters, Hythe’s pebble beach, and Sandgate with interesting antique shops, are all well worth a visit. There is easy access to the Eurostar and the Channel Tunnel for those looking for something further afield in France, so don’t forget to bring your passport! Something closer to home is the local pub, where it not only feeds the family after a day’s exploring, it also provides a venue for craft fairs and farmers’ markets, and won an award for ’Kent pub of the year’ in the Kent life awards. Beach 8 miles. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.

    A beautiful cottage in a lovely rural setting. The cottage is really well equipped with everything you need. Cleanliness was exemplary. A welcome pack provided all you need for that first simple meal. The owners were really friendly and welcoming. Just one warning - if you need to use the second bedroom ensure you can climb stairs! Once in the second bedroom (which contains 2 single beds) like the rest of the cottage is it very comfortable. My friends and I had a great time staying at Fig Cottage.

    Not our first stay at Fig Cottage and not our last :-) It's cosy, quiet with all you need if you just want to chill. If you want to go sight seeing then you haven't got that far to go to all the coastal resorts or even hop across the channel.

    I have stayed in a number of rented holiday cottages over the years and I can truly say this is one of the best appointed and most comfortable I have stayed in. The owner is very helpful but not intrusive. I really recommend this cottage to you.

    Absolutely excellent. It's a bijou cottage, but we found there was plenty of space for a family of four due to the clever way the space has been used. The cottage is very well equipped, certainly better than any I have stayed in before. We had a lovely break and would highly recommend this cottage.

    Well equipped cottage, stairs are very steep, not that we needed to use the upstairs so not a problem for us, but could be difficult for very young children. Extensive welcome pack and brilliant weather. Lots to visit nearby. Great time, love the local pub the five bells, short walk from cottage.

    Excellent cottage, well equipped, in a lovely setting. Great facilities, the owners couldn't do enough to make us feel comfortable and enjoy our holiday. Great for a couple or a family with two children.
