Buses to Canterbury and Whitstable stop two minutes walk from the house and access to the M2 motorway is about 1.5 miles away. '

The England region

East Kent with the sea on three sides has many wonderful accessible sandy beaches to laze, play, swim and relax, Faversham has several medieval buildings and is the home of Shepherd Neame Kentish ale;

Five minutes along the coast from Faversham lies Whitstable, Kent's Southwold, with a slightly arty air and of course the famous local oysters, a product that has helped the development of seafood eateries in the town.

For those who fancy DIY seafood Herne Bay may well be the place, its famed sea-angling and sea-fishing boats giving you the chance to catch the big one. A couple of miles beyond the bay Streete Cottage in St Nicholas at Wade is a 17th century house that can be rented for an oak-beamed glimpse of the past.

At the eastern end of this coastline sits Margate, where sea-bathing took off with the invention of the bathing engine‚. Margate was for many decades the East Enders‚ choice for a great day out, and still provides simple pleasures: a good beach for the kids; whelks with vinegar; and amusement arcades. Surprising historic houses stand a stroll away, and less well-known still the two big caves beneath the town.

Just 9 miles from Faversham historic Canterbury, a renowned destination even before Chaucer. The Falstaff Inn was built only a couple of centuries after Chaucer; The Woolpack Inn nearby in picturesque Chilham has its own ghost;

To the west is conurbation of Rochester, Gillingham and Chatham with history aplenty to offer.

Rochester has an early Norman Castle with imposing keep, and a Cathedral from the same era. A grubbier part of its past, the old prison hulks, is recalled in the Guildhall Museum.

Chatham for a long time operated the biggest naval dockyard in the land. In the Historic Dockyard you‚ll find the ropery, at more than 400 yards the longest room in the country, and the submarine Ocelot.

Lying between Gillingham and Faversham is the Isle of Sheppey. Sheerness was established as a fort to protect the Medway, developing into a seaside resort in the 19th century. It has a blue flag beach, and the adjoining town of Minster has the Lees Beach, beloved of windsurfers, as well as the historic Abbey for those with a quieter outlook . The south coast has excellent birdwatching at Elmley Marshes and The Swale.

Canterbury

Faversham is one of England’s most historic and charming towns, nestling between the rural delights of the Kent Downs and the austere beauty of its coastal wetlands. It is a picturesque market town with nearly 500 listed buildings. Faversham dates from pre-Roman times, is mentioned in the Domesday Book and is a bustling place with a large numberof independent shops and restaurants.

Faversham also has some of the best walking in England, with way-marked routes through stunning Kent countryside and along the coastal Saxon Shore Way

There is excellent birdwatching a couple of miles from the Town at Harty Ferry.

“Excellent Value, well equipped.”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2016

A very comfortable and well equipped cottage. The owners were very helpful. Close to Faversham town centre and a supermarket, which was handy.. (We have booked again)

Owner's reply: Hi Robert. Thank you for your review. We're delighted you enjoyed your stay.

“Homely small house in good location”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2016

This is a terraced small house in a street close to the centre of Faversham. Location is good. The interior is a little tired, the kitchen is rather over-full of the owner's cast-offs, although some may like a lot of kitchen equipment it is all rather used. Furniture is basic and decoration likewise. However it is comfortable, although upstairs there is a toilet in what amounts to a cupboard which is a macerator unit and makes a loud noise when flushed. There is another downstairs in the bathroom through the kitchen.

Owner's reply: Hello Barbara. We're sorry you found the house rather basic, during your stay in November 2015. We are however pleased you were comfortable during your stay.

“Value for money!”

Reviewed 7 Jul 2016

Our family (2 adults and one child, age 9) stayed here during the last week in June 2016. The cottage has everything you could ask for when it comes to amenities. It was also clean, comfortable and good size. It was relatively close to the train station, about 15 minutes walk. One drawback that we encountered was: We had a really hard time finding a parking spot for our car. Out of 7 nights we managed to find a parking spot on the street 2 times. There is a school opposite of the cottage and you can park you car in front of the school gates but then you have to get up before 8 am in the morning and move the car. Not really what you want do to when you are on holiday. Besides that we had a really wonderful time and we can really recommend this cottage!

Owner's reply: Thank you Jonas. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay. We're sorry about the parking. There is generally space even if not immediately in front of the door.

“Lovely cottage, excellent location, would return again”

Reviewed 29 Jun 2013

We rented the cottage for a week in school half term holiday. The cottage was very comfortable and suited all our needs. Large fridge/freezer, coffee pot and dishwasher - my husbands needs were met! The garden is small but it is big enough to sit out in the morning for breakfast. The town was a few mintues walk away with a large Tesco round the corner. Faverhsam has a lovely farmers market twice a week, small cinema, pubs, tea shops, of brewary and is an excellent place to holiday - even with teenagers (14 &18)! We decided to get the train to Canterbury which was much cheaper than parking and only took 10 minutes - recomment theMoat Tea Shop! YUM. Lovely cottage, hope to return soon!

“Very comfortable, great hosts, perfect base to travel Kent!”

Reviewed 23 Jan 2013

We stayed at this property in September/October 2012. The entire experience was great! The owners of the property were wonderful to deal with and made every effort to accommodate our needs. We were very pleased. The town of Faversham is a great base for exploring the Kent area, including Canterbury, Rochester, Broadstairs, Dover, and much more! The rail station was an easy 15 minute walk from the property, which came in very handy for day trips to London. The property was very comfortable for 2 adults. We would definitely recommend this property to others who want to stay away from the hustle and bustle, but still have easy access to the great sights of Kent!
