    About this property

    A lovely cosy property sleeping 4, that was once the village schoolroom. Very sympathetically converted and furnished with delightful vintage touches, such as a children's school desk, old books, signs and a blackboard. With an enclosed courtyard garden safe for a small dog and private parking in the centre of this friendly village, it is an excellent location for exploring the many fabulous walks from the house along the north Kent Downs, through chestnut woods and beautiful unspoilt countryside to a welcoming village pub!

    This lovely conversion of a Victorian schoolroom is in the centre of the village of Waltham which sits high up on the North Downs, an area of outstanding natural beauty and only 10 minutes drive from the beautiful cathedral city of Canterbury.  The house comfortably sleeps 4 and accepts 1 small dog.  The local area is stunning unspoilt countryside, from woodland to chalk downland, to orchards and vineyards perfect for walkers and enjoying the outdoors.  There are plenty of very good country pubs nearby and the coast is within easy reach where you will find traditional seaside towns and the choice of sandy or pebble beaches.

    "We have had a wonderful stay at The Old School Room, warm cosy and so comfortable, everything that you could need. Thank you for the provisions including the home made marmalade. Despite the February weather, we made the most of the local area, several trips to Canterbury, walks in Whitstable and Broadstairs, a visit to the lovely Turner gallery and the atmospheric Dungerness. We will be back."
