The Gardener's Cottage is recently converted, providing a period setting with 21st century amenities. The interiors have been thoughtfully decorated and furnished with style and comfort in mind; using beautiful English Oak, Heritage and eco products to attain an understated elegance. Comfort and Quality has been the main criteria. Designed for two, they offer the ultimate self-catering experience; an oasis of calm from which to discover this area's rich heritage. Great emphasis has been put into providing everything needed to make your stay unforgettable Set in a pretty courtyard, these two cottages are designed for a relaxing, rejuvenating getaway.

Situated between Sandwich and Canterbury, we are ideally placed for visiting this outstanding area of England; along with easy access to ports for trips to France and beyond. Kent International Airport and Dover Docks are 25 minutes away (we are not on the flight path!), and Ashford International Station for Eurostar is around 45 minutes drive.

These two charming cottages nestle in the hamlet of Shatterling, a beautiful part of the county of Kent, within easy reach of Canterbury, (a UNESCO site). Sandwich, described as one of the most complete medieval towns in England is 5 minutes by car, or head out into the beautiful countryside for days spent walking or birdwatching. If history is your thing, the ancient castles of Deal, Walmer, Richborough and Dover are all within easy reach. Other ideas may include a day trip to Paris via Eurostar or ferry to Boulogne and Calais; or stay with these shores and enjoy a day fishing, golfing or a refreshing coastal walk. This is the perfect location for exploring the best that Kent has to offer

About this location

The Kent region

Wingham

Canterbury's skyline is dominated by the stunning Cathedral, the oldest in England. But the cathedral is only part of the story; the ancient ruins of St Augustine's Abbey and St Martin's Church form Canterbury's UNESCO World Heritage Site while other ancient ruins such as the Castle are reminders of the city's history, heritage and culture. Although Canterbury is a place steeped in tradition it is also a modern and vibrant city. Luxury hotels, fine restaurants serving food from across the globe, pulsating nightclubs and welcoming pubs combine to give a complete experience. For those who have a yearning for retail, Canterbury's array of shop windows beckon with a kaleidoscope of colours, inviting you to sample what's on offer. Many of the high street names are here as well as a delightful range of independent retailers. The King's Mile has an atmosphere all of its own while the city's St Dunstan's, West Gate Towers and Northgate areas have a range of specialist and individual outlets.

Travelling by foot is always a good way to explore the city. Walking trails or guided walks will help you make the most of your time here and to enjoy the winding lanes and streets, all with their own unique identity. Alternatively you may wish to relax and absorb the wonder of the city with a boat trip along the River Stour. You will be able to appreciate Canterbury's finest and historical architecture set against outstanding, scenic views. The crystal clear waters offer a home to ducks, swans, fish and other wildlife while the river banks have an array of bending willow trees and wild flowers.

Whatever a visitor seeks, they will find it in Canterbury. It possesses a quality that is both timeless and inspiring. Creativity and culture combine to ensure that you return again and again.

We try to make all our guests feel welcome, and try to tread the line between trying to be helpful and welcoming and not intrusive! It was a pleasure to meet you both and hope to see you again.

we find that internet access is important to everyone these days, so put boosters in the cottages as we are in the country and the internet used to drop out. Everyone says how comfortable the beds are… we have tried to make the cottages as user-friendly as possible!
