Lovingly converted, delightful stylish property provides the perfect location for couples or families in the glorious Kent countryside. Relax and explore the pubs and restaurants on the doorstep.

Picture a homely wooden cottage at the heart of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Kent – sounds like the perfect holiday home, doesn't it? Stay at this lovely cottage, which has room for up to four people, for some quality time with your family or friends in a rural, rustic setting. Spend your days walking or cycling along the trails of the scenic and heritage-rich North Downs Way or enjoying extended pub lunches. In the evenings, settle into your cosy holiday home with a home-cooked meal, a glass of red and an exciting plan for tomorrow.

The property has been tastefully decorated, with a cheerful colour scheme and wooden furniture. It's equipped with handy modern features such as a Smart TV, dishwasher and coffee machine to make your stay extra enjoyable. Relax together in the spacious lounge/diner, either sitting down with a book or laying out the maps to draw up a route for tomorrow's walk. Outside there's a private garden with furniture where you can enjoy meals on warmer days, making the most of the fresh country air while lambs frolic nearby during the summer months.

The house is deep within the Kent Downs, home to spectacular landscapes taking in wonderful woodland, rolling hills and diverse wildlife. The nearest pub is in Bossingham (1.5 miles) while you'll find a general store in Stelling Minnis (2 miles) if you need supplies. Visit Canterbury (7.5 miles) to visit the world-famous cathedral, wander through medieval streets and drift down the River Stour on a punt. Whitstable is a great option for a day out by the sea – explore the independent shops before heading for a pint at the pub on the beach.

We very much enjoyed our stay in this property, which had everything one would need and require for a week getaway in the countryside and ideally located to explore Kent more generally. As others have mentioned, the cottage is close to a busy road but this was never a distraction. So we would come back again. :)

A very welcoming stay. A lovely place. A very spacious 2 bed property. Very homely, comfortable and relaxing. It's on a fairly main road but I can't say I really noticed it.
