Nicely situated cottage close to Canterbury, Faversham, Leeds Castle, Belmont House, and other interesting places to visit. The location is also very convenient for hikes in the Blean Woods or the Kent Downs. The cottage was exceptionally clean, and we were warmly welcomed with refreshments. Tea and coffee were also provided. Additionally, the Red Read moreLion pub, which offers delicious pub food, is just a stone's throw away, making dining out convenient during your stay. Hide

Great location with a large parking space for one car. The secure outside patio is a great sun trap. The cottage is opposite The Red Lion pub. The pub is dog friendly, offers great food and has a very well maintained beer garden. The train station at Faversham is not too far away and has adequate parking. One day we caught a train to London VictorRead moreia for a quick visit to the capital! Hide
