Retro Modern Cottage In The Heart Of Sandwich; 5 Mins To Sandwich Bay

Overview

Property

Updated: 06-Dec-2016
Cottage in Sandwich, Kent, England - Quiet Location, Family & Pet Friendly

Sandwich is packed full with heritage sites, Sandwich Bay is a 10-minute flat cycle away and the UNESCO site of Canterbury a short 30-minute drive away. With a modern twist on traditional, and with the use of bold colours and modern patterns this home has a timeless and hip look. Both the living room and dining room have open fires – a relaxing way to end the day after a busy day exploring.

The living room painted in soft grey has a modern sofa that can convert into a sofa bed and two Annabelle chairs. There is also a TV with Freeview and DVD player. A large dining room is contemporary in style with its white gloss table, bold print sideboard and loveseat. A brand new gallery style gloss white kitchen has been fitted with hob, oven, dishwasher and washing machine.

The master bedroom is king size and the back bedroom a twin with zip and link beds that too can be a king double. The bedrooms decorated in a soothing paper white with soft furnishings in subtle greys and blues. From the back bedroom there is an incredible aspect looking out over characterful timber framed houses. There is a good size family bathroom with bath and shower enclosure on the second floor.

A sunny courtyard garden has outdoor seating with BBQ area. It’s a little oasis with flower beds, interesting shrubs and herb garden where you can help yourself to fresh rosemary, thyme and sage.

For families there is a travel cot, high chair, safety socket protectors, plastic beakers, plates, cutlery, a choice of children's DVDs, toys and games suitable for the under 7s.

Beautiful Sandwich Bay which at low tide reveals an expanse of sand is 5 minutes by car. From Sandwich Bay you can walk along the shingle/pebble shoreline to Deal Beach uninterrupted (twenty minutes) and on to Walmer and then Kingsdown Beach (1 hour walk in total). St. Margarets Bay is a twenty minute-drive away and is a wonderful pebble bay nestled between the White Cliffs with rock pools to explore at low tide. The sandy beaches of Broadstairs, Ramsgate and Margate have more blue flags than anywhere else in the country. Botany Bay is photographers delight with its chalk stalks and Joss Bay a firm favourite with the surfers.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The cottage was perfect! Exactly as described, with everything clean and fresh, and very comfortable beds. Claire has thought of everything one could need or want to make for a relaxing stay - the books and toys for the children were very much appreciated, as were the welcoming touches (ground coffee, milk in the fridge etc). The cottage is in a great location for exploring Sandwich and the surrounding beautiful Kent countryside, beaches and castles. Claire was great at communicating, making everything run smoothly. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage, I wish we could have stayed longer!

Great, nicely designed.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic little cottage, perfect for our small family. Claire has done a fabulous job on the interior and it just feels like a really nice place to be, there were even childrens toys and books to kept them entertained while tea was cooking. Great location, Sandwich is lovely, so much to do here. Really close to beautiful beaches, seaside towns and lots of historical sites and properties. We only had a week which was no way near long enough to see it all - we'll have to visit again. There are also lots of local farms with PYO and farm shops so it's easy to get really fresh local food (we were here in August). All in all a great week in a great house in a great area.

Beautiful little cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week's holiday in this beautiful little cottage. The first thing that strikes you is how clean everywhere is and the kitchen was spotless. The owner left jars of tea, coffee, milk in the fridge and even a bottle of wine. Just what you want to find when you have had a long journey. The beds were so comfy and we didn't hear a sound at night. The best sleep we have had on any holiday.

The location was brilliant, so close to the centre of Sandwich and a lovely little scenic walk to the supermarket if you wanted groceries. There are great eating places within easy reach and a lovely little café serving a great breakfast very close at hand.

I have no hesitation in recommending this property for your holiday and the owner is so friendly and helpful.

What a brilliant lovely cottage in a perfect Sandwich cobbled street. We had no problems parking and it was so well located for amenities, parks, walks and more. There were plenty of books for the children and adults and we would return in a heartbeat. Thank you!
