About this location
The Kent region
Candy Cottage situated in the conservation area of the village of Rodmersham Green near Sittingbourne on the North Kent coast. Close to good transport links, this luxury cottage is a very convenient location to explore Kent and also for day trips to London or the Continent.
The whole of the North Kent Coast is a lovely place to explore, from RSPB nature reserves for bird watching on Elmley Marshes on the Isle of Sheppey to harbours such as Whitstable where you can sample the famous oysters. With pretty beach huts and the traditional seaside resorts of Herne Bay, and Broadstairs, this is a very popular area of Kent for enjoying a traditional seaside holiday, and it is all on the doorstep of this traditional Kent holiday cottage.
The Cathedral City of Canterbury and the county town of Maidstone, both in Kent, are also both only approximately 15 miles away from the cottages. The medieval market town of Faversham is just 6 miles
Candy Cottage is a close to the beautiful North Kent Downs and Cromers Woods, a 28 hectare ancient woodland owned by the Kent Wildlife Trust, best visited in March to early July and October.
The cottage is opposite the village pub; the Fruiterers Arms run by Tony and Adrian. The pub serves bar and restaurant meals including their speciality steak on a stone. The village shop Rodmersham Coffee and Shop, run by Paula, is 4 doors away from the cottages, and sells a variety of local produce, papers, magazines, teas, coffees, cakes, lunches and snacks. On a sunny day you can sit outside, relax and enjoy the view of village life. Pre-ordered food boxes (at an extra cost) are available from the store, ready for your arrival.
Just 2.5 miles from the cottages, east of Sittingbourne, you will be able to join the No.1 Cycle Route, which follows the North Kent coast passing through Rochester and Canterbury. The ride takes you through the village of Conyer, along the creek side and past the yacht club - it's worth stopping off at The Ship at Conyer enroute! In addition there are some lovely local cycle routes we can advise on including rides through Rodmersham, Milstead and Bredgar and into the Kent Downs AONB and along the Pilgrims Way.
For steam enthusiasts, classic car/tractor buffs or children of all ages the Bredgar and Wormshill Light Railway opens its doors once a month (see links for opening times). BWLR has a delightful 2 foot gauge line tucked away in the heart of the Kent countryside, near the village of Bredgar in a richly wooded area of the North Kent Downs.

"Excellent and wonderful home away from home!"
We stayed at Candy Cottage for a long weekend with our five year old daugther. Everything you need and more is provided along with a warm welcome hamper basket with home made bread, local butter and eggs, tea and coffee, everything you need on your first day. The cottage and kitchen are well equiped and also have all the information you need about the area, walking, cycling, driving, what to do and what to see ( also with children), etc. The cottage even has staircase safety, highchair und toys for children. It really felt like your home away from home with nothing missing!
