Description

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.

    This was my fifth visit to Fig Cottage which I regard as my home in Kent. I lived in Hythe for thirty years and a change in circumstance made it advisable to leave when my husband died in 2014. He is buried at St Mary's church just opposite the cottage and so I can visit him as well as the many friends I have in the area from my own 'home' and welcome them to the cottage of course. Hester Fenwick has become a friend too and driving into Court Lodge Farm is always a pleasure. I think I am the only single visitor but can see why it is so popular with family groups.

    We have just returned home from a wonderful week at Fig Cottage. We were made to feel so welcome by the owner . The cottage is beautiful, very clean and all effort has been made to make it feel homely and comfortable. Everything in the cottage is of a good quality and the owners have made sure that you have everything needed to make your stay just right. The location is great and not too far to travel for days out. The cottage has a book on the local history and we would recommend a read of it it to get a feel for the village and the property. If you want to get away from the noise and traffic, listen to the birds while watching the vines grow, and have a peaceful relaxing break, this is just the place.

    Lovely cottage in a beautiful setting. Quality furnishings and nice and clean. Only tiny negative was the woven mat on the lounge floor. Looked nice but uncomfortable to sit on when playing with a young child. Only mentioning for the benefit of future guests to bring a mat if you have a baby / young child. Have stayed in a lot of cottages and few are of this high standard. Also there is lots to do in the area, needed a month not a week!

    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.
