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.

    Very relaxing stay and the hosts were very informative and helpful!! Location is perfect for woodland walks and nearby small villages with local produce and tea rooms. A scenic getaway that I would definitely recommend for some peace and quiet.

    Owner very friendly and helpful. Bed could have been more comfortable. Difficult to turn car round. We had some difficulties due to mobility problems. Recommend for a younger couple!1

    Fantastic location for nature lovers and walkers. 30 minute walk to train station through footpaths and orchards, enjoyable. The host is very charming and welcoming. Everything you need is provided, like going home from home.

    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.
