Our small cottage is situated in the lovely village of Elham, surrounded by beautiful countryside. The village was awarded Kent village of the year 2011/2012.
On offer we have a small but cosy bedroom which has a Day Bed, which can be used as a double or single, depending on requirements. From our own experience, and that of former guests and family that have stayed, it is very comfortable. Our accommodation includes our main bedroom, a lounge/dining room, a small kitchen (with bathroom off) and a large conservatory with a modern and efficient wood burner...great in those winter months. We have an open fire in the lounge and central heating. There is a large back garden with a raised platform at the rear, giving lovely views out over the countryside. There are also views to the front over the village and the church spire.
The village is located in the middle of a triangle formed by Canterbury (11m), Folkestone (9m) and Ashford (15m); these all have frequent train services to London and elsewhere, including the now well established High Speed Rail link. The nearest station is at Sandling (5.5m), the high-speed train taking only 60 minutes to London St. Pancras and Elham is on the Canterbury/Folkestone bus route, with an hourly service. If you fancy a trip across to France then the ferry at Dover is about half an hour’s drive and the Channel Tunnel terminal is only about fifteen minutes away.
Our village is picturesque and friendly and boasts two pubs, a restaurant in a beautiful period building steeped in history, a tea room and a village shop...not bad these days!
We are in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and there are lovely walks all around through rolling countryside and woodland. So if you like a good walk, you are in the right place. We also offer male/female bikes for anyone interested.
There is plenty to do in the area...including Dover Castle, Canterbury Cathedral, the new Turner Contemporary Gallery at Margate, Howletts Zoo Park and Port Lympne Wildlife Park (all are major attractions in Kent). We are 15 minutes from the coast, with some lovely fish restaurants, walks and beaches.
We can provide an evening meal if you’d like one and we use our own garden produce when in season.
Above all, we are warm and friendly; we want you to enjoy your stay with us and look forward to meeting you.
