About the property

A holiday cottage with a difference! Arcadia is a fascinating conversion of a pair of High Victorian Gothic chapels designed by Thomas Talbot Bury, a noted pupil of Pugin, built around 1870. The two main chapels are linked by a cloistered reception hall where the main entrance, and door to the garden are located. The master bedroom, built on a mezzanine floor, features stained glass windows and a free standing roll top bath.

The large open plan sitting/dining room is comprised of one of the twin chapels in its entirety, and has full length stained glass windows and a high vaulted ceiling as well as the original chapel organ. With a 50 inch flat screen television, large leather sofas and a long oak dining table, this room lends itself to being an excellent quirky entertaining space.

Outside, the garden features a pond with fountain, gravel walkways and lawned area with loungers, table and chairs. Arcadia is to be found within Charlton cemetery, nestling beneath the impressive Dover Castle.

Ganz besondere Unterkunft!

  • 4 of 5

Die Unterkunft ist toll und etwas ganz besonderes.

Man darf natürlich kein Problem damit haben, von Gräbern umgeben zu sein und ohne sonstige Nachbarschaft zu sein- ausser Gräbern und recht vielen Spinnen!

The port of Dover is just a short drive, a great opportunity to take a day trip to France. The historical sites of Dover Castle and the War Time Tunnels are both within easy reach, and Samphire Hoe Nature Reserve is only a few miles away.
