About Hilary and Lawrence Knight

We have been associated to Faversham for many years and have owned our cottage for over 12 years and decided to let it as a holiday rental in 2012.

We first came to Faversham because of our interest in sailing. We are now both retired from wage slavery but we remain busy and are widening our interests and activities around Favversham. We particularly enjoy playing Duplicate Bridge at the friendly Faversham Bridge club.

There is a huge variety of things to see and do around Faversham which also still has a bijou cinema and local theatre group.

Hilary and Lawrence Knight purchased this cottage in 2001

The house is small and cosy and has a homely atmosphere. It is easy to keep warm. Our neighbours are friendly.

Perfect base to explore Faversham and surrounding area

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was a great place to stay for our week. It was good to be near the station and the town so we didn't always need to get into the car to go out. Good walks out of Faversham to the marshes. We were aware parking might have been an issue had we used the car more. We were lucky to get a space on the road each time we did go out but aware that going out at the weekend or coming back to the cottage in an evening might have meant finding another road to park in. The cottage was comfortable and well equipped.
