Location description from owner

The England region

Chilham is situated in the heart of Kent, which is known as the ‘Garden of England’ for its attractive countryside and gardens, and for its historic towns and villages. The varied coastline it is also very distinctive from the White Cliffs of Dover to the pebble beaches of Whitstable.

Visitors can enjoy long walks in the beautiful countryside, or a day out visiting one of its castles & gardens or enjoy shopping in one of its centres. Definitely worth a visit are: Ashford outlet just next to the Eurostar train station, Bluewater shopping Mall one of the largest in Europe (45 mins by car off the A2) or catch a Eurostar train into Stratford (east London in only 25min) and visit the new Westfield just next to the Olympic Park.

The continent is readily accessible by travelling with Eurotunnel from Folkestone to Calais in just 35 minutes.

Chilham

Chilham is on the North Downs National Trail and ancient Pilgrim's Way to Canterbury in a designated "Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty".

Walking distance to the beautiful, peaceful countryside: the Kent Downs, woodland, lakes and orchards. Excellent walks from the cottage to Kings Wood (1,500 acres) where King Henry VIII hunted deer and to Godmersham Park (visited by Jane Austin). Numerous other walks nearby in the Stour Valley and Crundale Downs.

In the village there are two pubs, a train station (short walk away and with direct trains to London, Ashford, Canterbury and Ramsgate), bus stop (services to Canterbury and Ashford), and a Post Office. Groceries, fruit and vegetables can be purchased from nearby farm shops. Plenty of parking spaces in the nearby free car park (3 min. walk). The Cathedral city of Canterbury is 6mls. Easy access to many of Kent's attractions, its gardens, castles, coast, nature reserves and historic old towns e.g. Sissinghurst Gardens, Leeds and Dover Castles, Chatham historical dockyard, Whitstable, Faversham, Sandwich, Romney Marsh, Walmer, and Rye.
