About the property

Great cottage full of character in charming village

The Townsend Cottage, Northbourne, Nr Deal

Lovely 3 bedroom cottage which dates back to the 18th Century, offering a feel of the period with exposed brickwork, beams and an inglenook fireplace with working wood burning stove, yet providing the comforts of today with oil fired central heating and a modern kitchen with all mod cons! Previously owned by Lady Russell, luxuries imagined during this time are found, including high quality bedding in all of the 3 bedrooms. The well established walled garden is a lovely place to relax after a hard day touring or by the beach! Wifi can be picked up in parts of the property and security code provided.

Beautiful feature lounge with beams and inglenook fireplace, LCD TV with DVD and Freeview. Separate dining room with country style furnishings including a Welsh Dresser. Modern well equipped kitchen with adjacent utility/shower room. Upstairs offers 2 double bedrooms and a twin bedroom, all with good storage. There is a family bathroom with full size bath, hand held shower, w/c and basin.
