This charming, imposing detached mock Tudor property offers spacious holiday accommodation and is set in nearly 4 acres of idyllic grounds, offering panoramic views over the local countryside. It offers many features such as an oak curved staircase, leaded light windows, beech floor, open fire as well as a summer house/games room and outdoor pool. The bedrooms overlook the lovely gardens. It is in a quiet peaceful location adjacent to the caretaker’s lodge and is only ½ mile from the local pub and just over 100 yards from a letter box. An ideal touring base, this beautiful area abounds with stately homes steeped in history as well as walks and is easy for commuting to London as well as trips to France with Dover approximately 40 minutes’ drive. Canterbury with its beautiful cathedral is within easy reach. Shop and pub 1/2 mile.
It seldom happens that reality equals the pictures used in the ad for a holiday home. Well, here it surely was the case, and even better: the big garden behind it and the beautiful surroundings came on top of it. Perfect place if you like hiking too, because there are lots of nice long walks in the neighbourhood. The house was clean and tidy and a new carpet had been put in the big bedroom. Of course it is an old house, and in one bathroom you had to be patient with the water, but that was no problem. The house has an astonishing history and we just loved staying there. Since it was a bit chilly downstairs in the evening, we enjoyed the wood fire very much. Tony and Helen also gave us very good advice on where you could get excellent pub food. This holiday was just one big smile, from the beginning till the end!
