This comfortable, single-storey annexe, in Kentish style, adjoining the owner’s home, is located in the beautiful countryside of Old Wives Lees near Canterbury. Decorated and furnished to a good standard and at the end of a cul-de-sac, it makes the perfect base from which to enjoy walks and abundant wildlife. A cosy open plan living area with French windows joins the kitchen and leads to the double bedroom.
A wildflower garden with sitting area is also located behind the property, which leads into 5 acres of unspoilt woodlands. Local attractions include Chilham village, with its unique medieval square, often used for film sets. Wye is also a lovely village to visit, 6 miles away and the historic city of Canterbury, with its famous cathedral and culture, is close by. The seaside resorts of Whitstable, Deal, Broadstairs and Herne Bay are within an hour’s drive.
Go back in time and explore the castles of Dover, Deal and Walmer. For a day trip to France, ferry journeys from Dover, or the Eurotunnel from Folkestone to France are frequent and very popular. For eating, there is an excellent local pub in Chilham, one at Chartham, and several recommended eating places in Wye. Otherwise, there are many good restaurants in Canterbury. Beach 11 miles. Shop and pubs 1 mile, restaurants 7 miles.

This is the perfect setting for a couple looking for a break from a busy weekly routine. The location is rural and peaceful, yet within easy reach of Canterbury with all its historical interest. The owners of the cottage (which is rather basic) are extremely friendly, and will make your stay enjoyable in any way they can.
