The cottages are in the grounds of Hardacre House which was built in the first part of the fifteenth century. Its most famous occupant was John Twyne, the last headmaster of St Augustine’s Abbey school and the first of Kings School in Canterbury after the Dissolution in 1541. He was Alderman, Mayor and MP of Canterbury and even spent time in the Tower of London when he offended King Henry VIII! He married Allice Peper of Hampshire in 1525 and they spent many years in Preston.

About Henrietta Kelly

David and Henrietta have been living at Hardacre House for 3 years. They were married 4 years ago and have decided to move full time to "The Garden of England".

They running courses for foreign adults and younger students who want to improve their English in the main house and offer 2 self catering cottages which are adjacent to the main house.

David has lived in Kent and London most of his life and loves gardening, playing tennis, walking and biking. Henrietta has lived in France and Chile and also loves an active outdoor life much the same as David! They both love travelling and have visited Egypt, Morocco, Tanzania, India and many lovely places in Europe including France, Italy and Spain. We both speak French and Henrietta speaks Spanish too.

They very much enjoy the theatre and there is a great one in Canterbury called "The Marlowe Theatre". When they have time and at the end of the day they enjoy having a good read but usually fall asleep with the book.

They both enjoy good food but most of all using their local products. They are eager to have a good kitchen garden which they are both working on.

They would love to share their beautiful garden which is in a very tranquil spot and an area of outstanding natural beauty. There are beautiful walks along many footpaths around the village and they are close to the sea side with a good choice of different types of beaches. They are also very close to Canterbury with its stunning cathedral and walled city and many other interesting historical sites including two "Cinques Port" towns of Sandwich and Dover, and Richborough Castle. There are the various golf courses in and around Sandwich, with Margate and Ramsgate also close at hand.

They would very much enjoy to welcome you to their home and share some of the secrets of Hidden Kent which they can reveal to our guests when they come and visit.
