This beautiful cottage offers comfortable and relaxing accommodation on the edge of the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Perfect for larger families looking for a base to explore the Garden of England.

Envisage your perfect holiday amongst the stunning scenery of the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, choosing this luxurious property as your comfortable base. Sleeping parties of ten with ample room for two canine companions, you’ll soon be wining and dining in style with your loved ones and filling your days with exciting activities and trips to historic Rochester 2.5 miles away. On balmy summer afternoons, you’ll have your private sunken seating area under a pergola to return to, so all you’ll need to do is uncork a bottle of wine and settle down to relax.

Sleek, sophisticated and extremely chic, the entire property is dressed to impress and laid out in a quirky style. You’ll discover a games room with sofas, a table tennis table and table football as well as a large bedroom upon entering, but the heart of the home is accessed via a small flight of stairs. Tiled flooring underfoot, contemporary lighting and impressive accessories create a soothing ambience in the capacious open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, whether you are returning from a day of adventures or waking up to start the day with coffee at the breakfast bar. Equipped with a range of gadgets including electric double ovens and a wine cooler, the kitchen is perfectly tailored for whipping up a feast to enjoy around the large table that has seating for 12. Open-tread stairs from the glass-galley hallway reveal a split-level first floor that’s home to the four remaining bedrooms, two of which have an en-suite apiece. Completing the property is a fabulous bathroom with a walk-in shower and bath. Completing the property is a handy utility room, and once you step outside via the bi-fold doors you’ll be blown away by the decked area that encircles the house. The garden offers a pergola, a swing set and even a BBQ for dining alfresco, and there is off-road parking for five cars.

This is a lovely house and enclosed garden-wonderful for a family stay. The road was a bit busier than I expected and as much of the land surrounding the house is on a working farm, even the country narrow lanes had frequent traffic. However there is a bus stop right beside the house and Historic Rochester and the Medway towns within easy reach. WeRead more used to live near the area and it was wonderful to be back for a trip down memory lane! Hide
