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
