  • Nestled on a quiet country lane surrounded by footpaths and wildlife
  • Try the famous 'coal fired'  takeaway fish and chips every weekend in the next village along

 

Property code: 66230

This cottage provides a wonderful retreat for those looking to get away from it all, relax in the hot tub, explore the surrounding lanes or watch the wildlife in the nearby pond.

Relax in this peaceful village in this former toll house, which dates back to 1762, and explore the surrounding countryside, enjoy the famous coal fired fish and chips in the next village of Upton or the indulgent ice cream parlour at Blyton. There is a wildlife pond with nearby seating close to the cottage and this provides a great place to sit and enjoy the peace and tranquillity, also nearby is a private airfield originally built for WW2 and if you are lucky you will see some really unique aircrafts, as well as the home of The Red Arrows being in Lincolnshire they regularly practise in the skies over the area. Further afield Hemswell Antiques Centre is a great day out as is the city of Lincoln.

Stepping into the entrance hall, kick off  your shoes and coats and wander through to the kitchen, decorated in neutral tones giving it a bright and airy feel. The kitchen offers everything you need to cook up a good meal during your stay, such as a fridge, electric oven and hob, plus seating and a table for two. Moving through to the lounge with reclining leather sofa you might find hard to leave, so put your feet up in front of the TV and enjoy some well earned rest, the low beams really add to the character of the cottage. The double bedroom is cosy and serene and provides a good night’s sleep with a window overlooking the garden. Whether it’s a long soak in the stunning freestanding bath, or invigorating shower with a giant rainfall shower head, the bathroom caters for everyone, whatever your preference.

Outside the enclosed garden offers a hot tub with parasol over allowing you to enjoy it whatever the weather, there is nearby seating if you fancy dining alfresco and plenty of space to let the dogs run around. Off-road parking is available for two cars.

The garden is enclosed but there is only chicken wire which can easily be pushed so small dogs can get through. Also there is no direct access to the garden you have to use the front door and walk your dog to the gate through to the garden which because its the owners drive its all open so you need to put your dog on a lead.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Whitstable is one of Kent’s most popular seaside towns, not only for its long shingle beaches, dotted with colourful huts and houses, but also for its annual Oyster Festival, when the town really comes alive. Here you can sample this renowned delicacy which has been collected in the area since Roman times and brings visitors from all over the globe to get a glimpse of the first catch of the season. Still a working harbour, you can sample a plethora of seafood from the stalls and restaurants as you watch the fishing boats return from sea, or pop up to the bohemian main street with its quirky colourful shops and galleries. Keep to the seaside theme and hire bikes to ride along the coast to Herne Bay just two miles away, or try the famous inland Crab and Winkle Way, which follows the old railway line between Whitstable and Canterbury and is packed with history and nostalgia. Relax with lazy days at the beach, building sandcastles and exploring hidden rock pools or take a long walk along the vast stretch of shingle beach. The area has lots of other beach walks, as well many country and woodland trails nearby, perfect for both you and the family dog! For a little culture, pay a visit to the town’s famous 18th century Castle and Gardens, Playhouse Theatre and Whitstable Museum and Gallery, all perfect for an afternoon or evening out. Only eight miles north of the cathedral city of Canterbury with its popular glass-fronted Marlowe Theatre, you are also just half an hour away from the up-and-coming seaside town of Margate and 45 minutes away from the port of Dover with its famous white cliffs. Slightly further afield, you will find the historic Cinque Ports towns of amongst others, Rye, Hastings and Tenterden where you will find a variety of spectacular monuments and beautiful castles to visit with all the family. Whitstable really is the perfect place for those who want to get back to how holidays used to be – full of fun, adventure and family.
