FORMER HOME TO REVOLUTIONARY THOMAS PAINE

Sandwich Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Bedroom: 2, Bathroom: 1, Sleeps: 4

In 1759 this cottage in Sandwich, UK, was the home and shop of Thomas Paine,founding father of the United States and French Republic. He created the phrase 'United States of America', and was author of three of the bestsellers of the eighteenth century, including the cornerstone of American democracy, Common Sense plus the bible of English radicalism, the Rights of Man.

The cottage has been carefully restored and furnished with period items of furniture that enable the visitor to relax and enjoy a period atmosphere. The cottage is larger than the frontage would suggest having had a Victorian kitchen extension. There is a good sized living room with a reading area containing an excellent collection of revolutionary period literature and of course all of Paine's works. The stairs lead to a bedroom with two period single beds and a wonderful early Victorian dresser of mahogany, the upstairs rooms are wonderfully characterful with their beamed ceilings and walls and floors with extraordinary slopes on them. The next bedroom has a beautiful mahogany double bed from ~ 1870. The bathroom upstairs has both a shower and bath. There is a log fire in the living room and a good supply of logs are included in the rental fee. Parking is free of charge in the Guildhall car park a few minutes walk from the cottage. There is a south facing cottage garden for visitors to enjoy, its carefully tended and is a typical English cottage garden full of flowers during the summer months.

Thomas Paine's cottage is located at the heart of the historic medieval town of Sandwich. Sandwich is the most complete medieval town in Britain and has the most complete street of timber frame buildings in Strand Street. The cottage is within a few hundred yards of a number of restaurants and inns as well as a range of shops. It is within 2 miles of 2 championship golf courses including the famous Royal St.Georges, there are excellent walks out to Sandwich Bay from the cottage. Canterbury is a 20 minute drive away and the cottage is a short walk to the railway station for high speed services to London.

The cottage is well placed for day trips to France or Belgium by car since it is only a 15 minute drive to the cross channel ferries, return trips to Bologne or Bruges can readily be achieved in a day. Both Dover and Rams gate ports are within easy reach and provide a range of museums and castles such as Dover Castle.

A number of tour companies offer tours out to visit the battlefields of WWI and WWII in France and Belgium and the cottage is well placed for this.

East Kent provides some of the finest coastal walks in Britain taking in views of the iconic White Cliffs of Dover from the Saxon Shore Way.
