North Downs Cottage, Nr Canterbury
Set in a converted stone barn high up in the North Downs, an area of outstanding natural beauty, the cottage, one of 5, has been restored respecting the original flint features of the building. You are surrounded by paddocks, working farmland and forests – perfect for exploring the countryside with plenty of beautiful walks and miles of bridle paths in the area, yet you are within close proximity to the historic city of Canterbury.
The Cottage
Stepping into the entrance you are greeted with an open plan kitchen, dining and lounge area. The kitchen is equipped and the lounge has a flatscreen television with DVD and Freeview, french doors lead out to a patio and garden area. On the first floor there is a full bathroom with WC, over-bath shower and basin as well as airing cupboard with plenty of hanging space. The master bedroom includes a double bed, armchair and bedside tables and a second twin bedroom has oak beds, a large wardrobe, bedside table and chair.
The Location
Located in acres of parkland between the rural villages of Petham and Waltham there is plenty to explore right on your doorstep with local pubs and access to some amazing forests all within a short distance of the cottage. The property is located on working farmland so the yard and stables can be active for long hours. Canterbury has many fantastic restaurants and shops and is heaving with history with the famous Cathedral, ancient city wall and Chaucer Tales. Day trips to London are quick and easy with the newly installed high speed trains from Ashford. Equally trips to the continent can just as easily be made with either Eurostar, by Ferry or via Eurotunnel.
