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 are two excellent local pubs in Chilham, and also one at Chartham. Otherwise, there are many good restaurants in Canterbury. Beach 11 miles. Shop and pubs 1 mile, restaurants 7 miles.

    We had a really lovely stay at Gorewell. The location is fantastic, in the countryside on the North Downs but only 6 miles or so from Canterbury. We enjoyed country walks centred round the picturesque village of Chilham, which is a bit over a mile down the hill from Gorewell; Canterbury is close and the park-and-ride system solves the problem of parking (or it's possible to go by train from Chilham); and we drove to other places in Kent. There are at least two really nice spots for lunch or cream tea within comfortable walking distance, and there is a pub in the village (but we didn't try it). The accommodation itself is comfortable, tastefully furnished, and it has all the things you would expect. However, if you want nightlife, clubs and shows, then Gorewell probably wouldn't be for you.

    Had a great time exploring Eastern Kent, and soaking up the history. The Annexe was a comfortable and cool (in the heat) cottage that served as a great base. The owner was very friendly and helpful, and the welcome was much appreciated.

    The owner was most hospitable and kind. There was a generous welcome tray on arrival and during the week she brought us a further bowl of raspberries freshly picked from her garden. There were plenty of interesting places to visit in and around that part of Kent. The location at the end of a single track road well away from busy main roads suited us well.
