About this property

Within easy reach of Dover, this is a perfect property for that day trip to France or exploring the Kent countryside.

This comfortable, single-storey annexe, in Kentish style, adjoining the owner’s home, is located in the beautiful countryside of Old Wives Lees near Canterbury. Decorated and furnished to a good standard and at the end of a cul-de-sac, it makes the perfect base from which to enjoy walks and abundant wildlife. A cosy open plan living area with French windows joins the kitchen and leads to the double bedroom. A wildflower garden with sitting area is also located behind the property, which leads into 5 acres of unspoilt woodlands. Local attractions include Chilham village, with its unique medieval square, often used for film sets. Wye is also a lovely village to visit, 6 miles away and the historic city of Canterbury, with its famous cathedral and culture, is close by. The seaside resorts of Whitstable, Deal, Broadstairs and Herne Bay are within an hour’s drive. Go back in time and explore the castles of Dover, Deal and Walmer. For a day trip to France, ferry journeys from Dover, or the Eurotunnel from Folkestone to France are frequent and very popular. For eating, there are two excellent local pubs in Chilham, and also one at Chartham. Otherwise, there are many good restaurants in Canterbury. Beach 11 miles. Shop and pubs 1 mile, restaurants 7 miles.

Chris ‐ 20 Jul 2018
"Had a great time exploring Eastern Kent, and soaking up the history. The Annexe was a comfortable and cool (in the heat) cottage that served as a great base. The owner was very friendly and helpful, and the welcome was much appreciated."
Theo ‐ 11 Jul 2018
"The owner was most hospitable and kind. There was a generous welcome tray on arrival and during the week she brought us a further bowl of raspberries freshly picked from her garden. There were plenty of interesting places to visit in and around that part of Kent. The location at the end of a single track road well away from busy main roads suited us well."

"Very nice place, helpful Landlady. Very quiet."
DURSTON ‐ 25 May 2018
"A great place for some peace and quiet but near to lots of popular destinations. We used the park and ride for access to Canterbury. Geoff looked after us very well."
Shelley ‐ 17 May 2018
"This is a rural hideaway cottage, which reflects the eco-friendly aspirations of the owner, and has French windows opening onto a large area of private woodland, awash with bluebells (May) and birdlife. We were given a warm and friendly welcome and told that, if we needed anything, we just needed to knock at the door. There are no shops or pubs in the immediate vicinity, but there is a farm shop 10 minutes' drive away and an excellent pub in the picturesque (and much filmed) village of Chilham also about 10 minutes' drive away - we did walk to Chilham through lovely country lanes, but you need to set aside a couple of hours for that. It was a great base from which to explore Kent (there were plenty of relevant maps, books and brochures in the cottage) - our favourite places being Canterbury and its lovely cathedral, Whitstable and Faversham, plus the National Trust properties at Chartwell, Sissinghurst Castle and the White Cliffs of Dover. If you enjoy country lanes, landscape and nature, then this makes for a very convenient and homely base with adequate kitchen and bathroom facilities - and a very comfortable bed!"
