Description

Old Post Cottage Sleeps 4 (2 Bedrooms)

Old Post Cottage is an end of terrace cottage, over looking the village green. It was originally a farm workers cottage built around 1860, latterly used as the post office and shop. The sitting room looks out across the village green, as does the main bedroom. The sitting room has a large comfy sofa and love chair. The dining room has a side board and extending dining table and 4 chairs. The kitchen is fully equipped and has a door leading out to the fully enclosed and lockable rear garden. The main bedroom has a double bed, 2 bedside tables with lights, wardrobe and chest of draws. The second bedroom has 3ft wide pine bunk beds, side table and shelf for top bunk with light and a wardrobe. One small well behaved dog accepted in this cottage.


About the property

E7620

These charming self catering holiday cottages are situated in the heart of the Kent village of Rodmersham Green, opposite the village pond, the village green and open countryside. The cottages were built in 1860 as farm workers cottages, Old Post Cottage later became the post office and village shop. Full of traditional features they are the perfect base for exploring Kent throughout the year. Both these luxury cottages have recently been refurbished. Each cottage has two bedrooms and are beautifully decorated, providing a calm and peaceful ambience, with a cosy sitting room and separate dining room. Old Post Cottage and Candy Cottage are both 4* rated and have been awarded Green Tourism GOLD award by the Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS).

We run Green Cottages Kitchen; Baking and Cookery workshops in my own kitchen (not the cottages). Workshops include bread making; Sourdoughs etc. We have several different scheduled workshops. If guests request a specific date I will try to accommodate with a minimum of 2 participants.

About Monique Bonney

We have lived in Rodmersham for many years and know the area well. We enjoy walking up on the North Kent Downs and cycling along the No.1 cycle route and round the local villages. We care about the local environment and community and encourage our guests to explore the local area. We use flowers from our garden to decorate the cottages and provide seasonal home grown fruit and vegetables when available. We bake our own bread. We have sought to create cosy and comfortable self catering cottages that support local businesses and have a low impact on the surrounding environment. We have children and know what is required when travelling with them. We love the fact that you can drive to the coast in 25 minutes or stay put and soak up the country air. The best of both worlds.

Monique Bonney purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Monique Bonney chose Kent

We love the position of these cottages, overlooking the village green, adjacent to the pub and a few doors from the village shop/cafe. Rural life without being too remote, pop into the village cafe for coffee or into the village pub for a drink and dinner. Opposite the cottages is a footpath that takes you into beautiful fruit orchards. When we bought these cottages they were in desperate need of modernising and had been knocked into 1 dwelling. We completely renovated them including some major structural work, insulated them, replumbed and rewired them. Today they have all the modern facilities you would expect with a dose of 1860's charm!

What makes this cottage unique

We hire out bicycles to explore the area. Both the No.1 cycle route and the North Kent Downs are about 1 mile from the cottages. The cottages are a short drive (5/10 mins) from Sittingbourne, 15 mins from the historic town of Faversham and 25 mins from the beautiful cathedral city of Canterbury. You can look out of window at rural village life but in a short drive/cycle be town. There are plenty of good village pubs to explore, Leeds Castle is a short drive (15/20 mins). If you fancy curling up on the sofa you can surf the internet using our high speed broadband Wifi, watch a DVD or read one of our local interest books. For something really different you could take a Thames Barge sailing trip. We can provide stair gates, highchairs and a cot on request.

We run Green Cottages Kitchen; Baking and Cookery workshops in my own kitchen (not the cottages). Workshops include bread making; Sourdoughs etc. We have several different scheduled workshops. If guests request a specific date I will try to accommodate with a minimum of 2 participants.

Quaint quiet cottage was a good base for exploring Kent

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Old Post Cottage, with days to rest and stay close around the wee village, and, other days to go exploring the Kent countryside. Everything we need was provided and the 'basket of goodies' when we arrived was most welcome.

Thanks again. Monique.

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful village, lovely cottage, great location to explore Kent.

Lovely history to the cottage and lots of local history books on the bookshelves as well as photo's etc which we really loved. Really nice to see the renovation and cottages as they were before their rescue!

Every attention paid to environment and eco friendly features.

Cottage very well equiped and well laid out with great attention to detail, like somewhere to put walking shoes - great!

Very friendly and helpful owner. Thank you
