Hettington, Canterbury, Kent
Stunning country cottage in quiet rural location 2 miles south of Canterbury. Dog and child friendly with shared use of tennis court and swimming pool. Suitable for guests with limited mobility as the large ensuite master bedroom is on the ground floor.
“Definitely the most amazing cottage I have stayed in.” (Review from HomeAway, September 2020).
Set in beautiful unspoilt countryside on the edge of the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, yet close to the historic city of Canterbury, Stable West combines the best of all worlds. This comfortable and spacious home is beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you need for a great get away, whether you want to settle down by the wood burning stove with a novel or a board game, walk out from the house across the adjoining wild flower meadow to follow one of the many local footpaths and perhaps stroll to a nearby pub, or simply sit and enjoy listening to the birds outside in the lovely garden.
Stable West forms part of a converted Edwardian stable block and is surrounded by the owners’ garden and 5 acre wild flower meadow. It has a large double bedroom (super kingsize bed) with ensuite bathroom on the ground floor, and a further double and single bedroom with shared bathroom on the first floor - all have very comfy mattresses. There is a fully equipped kitchen/dining room with seating for eight and a large attractive sitting room with wood burning stove and Sky Sports. Leading off this is a light and airy oak beamed conservatory with additional dining table and French doors out onto an enclosed private garden with a terrace (table and chairs and BBQ). The cottage has its own parking forecourt adjacent to the front door. Use of the tennis court and the walled swimming pool is by arrangement with the owners.
As well as Canterbury with its ancient cathedral and large range of shops, cafés and restaurants, there are many other places of interest within easy reach, such as Howletts Zoo Park (10 minutes by car), Dover Castle (25 minutes) and Sissinghurst Gardens (40 mins). There is also a wide variety of beaches and seaside resorts between 20 and 40 minutes away. Canterbury is less than an hour from London by train, and we are 20 minutes from the Channel Tunnel. There are walks straight from the house, and the Granville pub is a 10 minute walk away, serving delicious food and also great for a pint of the local beer.
