About the property

E426

Both the Oast and Tannery have secluded private patio gardens overlooking a small stream on one side with a traditional village green on the other side. The Old Tannery was a former working tannery in the 17th century and has attractive beamed ceilings in the bedrooms. The Oast was originally built to dry hops used to brew beer. The Oast has an interesting wooden walkway out over the river. Ellens Cottage is on our fruit farm between Littlebourne and Bekesbourne with a large private garden mainly lawn and trees, with views accross the fields. A welcome pack is provided with basic requirements to start you off on your holiday. Local places of interest include Canterbury Cathedral, Howletts Zoo Park, Dover Castle, Royal St George's Golf Club, the cinque ports of Sandwich and Deal, and the seaside towns of Whitstable and Faversham. The Channel Tunnel is 20 minutes drive away.

Why Rosie Mount chose Kent

The Oast and Tannery are two grade 2 listed historical buildings that had not been used for years but were part of our fruit farm so in 2005 we started a mammoth renovation job and created two beautiful holiday houses for visitors to Kent to enjoy. We have had visitors from all over the world and we love meeting so many different people

Ellens cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Ellens' cottage for three nights in June 2015, the party consisted of my parents, two children (9 and 11) and me. The cottage is a beautiful 3 bedrooms house, it is kept in impecable order, with everything, that you may possibly need, provided. The garden is large and well kept, it is a quiet, secluded space, we really enjoyed sitting on the patio with a glass of wine and the bbq. The location is perfect for a family holiday or a romantic break. There is a fantastic zoo across the fields and we saw elephants roaming the fields every night! Canterbury is only 3 miles down the road with great pubs, restaurants and a Waitrose! There is also a Hop Farm just down the road and you can book tours too. The hosts are incredibly efficient and professional, all my queries have been answered promptly and the booking was as smooth as a 5 star hotel! Thank you again for letting us stay in this wonderful cottage!
