Located in the historic town of Faversham, within the conservation area of the Abbey and as such has been noted as one of the finest examples of a medieval street in Britain, where antique and craft shops, quaint tea rooms and old English pubs are in abundance. Take a stroll to the nearby Brewery and tour one of England’s oldest breweries before sampling the delights at the home of the world’s largest fruit collection, there are also lots of dog walks around the area. The excitements of Canterbury are not far away, and the wildlife rich 'Oare Wildlife Marshes' is also within easy reach. Closer still is the pretty town of Whitstable, famed for its oysters and safe swimming spots and plentiful water sports.

The side door of this property opens straight into the cosy lounge with comfy sofas that you can curl up on in front of the wood burner and enjoy catching up on your favourite programmes on the Smart TV. From the lounge walk through to the formal dining room with a dining table and seating for six before entering the light and bright kitchen/diner with two sets of French doors out into the garden. The kitchen/diner offers everything you’ll need for whipping up delicious meals with an electric oven and induction hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. While cooking, chefs can chat to other guests sitting at the large farmhouse table in the dining area, where there is also a Smart TV. A traditional Rayburn keeps the kitchen warm and toasty and is the perfect spot for your four-legged friend to curl up in front of. Back through past the dining room there is a small library with an ample supply of reading material to keep you going whilst you curl up in front of the open fire on a chilly evening. The ground floor is completed with a shower room with shower and WC. Stairs from between the dining room and library lead up to the first floor where there are three bedrooms, a spacious king-size with an en-suite bathroom with a bath, shower and WC and two double bedrooms.

We were lucky enough to spend a wonderful Christmas at Anchor Light Cottage. The cottage has everything you could think of and we loved spending the evenings in front of the fire on the huge sofas, it felt like such a wholesome family break and every room was so comfy and welcoming. Loads to do locally with lots of pubs within walking distance and Read moreWhitstable a short drive away. Sarah is lovely and went out of her way to make us feel welcome. Our stay could not have been more perfect. Hide

Lovely cottage in a beautiful town. It was a great place to base ourselves for a week while we explored the lovely coast on the train. There's also lots to do and see in Faversham itself and lots of lovely restaurants and shops. So many places were dog friendly too, so we had a great first holiday with our dog. The cottage was clean and comfortableRead more and the dog-proof garden was a huge bonus. Hide
