The property

Dover 4.9 miles.

Tucked away amongst the generous grounds of the owner’s home, in the peaceful hamlet of Ewell Mminis, rests this delightful single-storey holiday home, Sleepy Hollow.

Enjoying a rural countryside position whilst situated within close proximity to the historic coastal town of Dover, Sleepy Hollow offers an intimate base for a couple seeking a romantic retreat.

Access your two off-road parking space through the private gated entrance before unloading your bags and making your way into your new home-from-home to begin your staycation.

Stepping inside, enter directly into the open-plan living/kitchen space, where you can look forward to kicking off your shoes following a day of adventure and unwinding with a sumptuous seat in front of the Smart TV.

Discover the well-equipped kitchen, beautifully-presented with contemporary gleaming white cupboards and contrasting wooden surfaces; here the designated chef can utilise the range of amenities provided to rustle up a romantic meal for two to be enjoyed over candlelight at the nearby dining table.

In the summer months, why not make mealtimes an alfresco affair by firing up the barbeque whilst you soak in the evening sunshine on the patio.

As the day draws to night, retreat indoors to discover two well-appointed bedrooms, a king-size and an intimate single, which pulls out into a snug double if required, serviced by a contemporary shower room fit with a spacious walk-in shower cubicle.

Take a break from doing the cooking and treat your loved one to a romantic meal for two at the local pub, The Marquis Of Granby, serving a selection of quintessentially British dishes in a historic setting, or for a spot of traditional pub grub, The Lydden Bell rests slightly further afield.

Get better acquainted with your surroundings, there is a large rural network of public footpaths and quiet lanes for cycling direct from the property and the area is a bird watcher's delight.

Alternatively enjoy a leisurely stroll through the well-kept grounds of the nearby Russell Gardens, adorned with an ornamental canal pond, pergola bridges and a delightful boathouse pavilion, forming a simply tranquil setting to walk hand-in-hand with your better half.

• Jump in the car and journey to the coastal town of Dover, where you can tour the labyrinthine war-time tunnels of Dover Castle, climb the triple helix staircase to reach the top of The Grand Shaft, a defence aid built in the 1800s towering over 140-ft, or marvel at the iconic whitewashed cliffs that adorn the coastline of the English Channel.

The Historic Canterbury is also nearby with its famous Cathedral, infamous witch ducking stool, boutique shops and restaurants.

If you're spoilt for time, why not catch the ferry over to France and embark on a European adventure?

Whether you're looking to unwind or explore, choose Sleepy Hollow as the base for your ideal staycation.

About the location


Whitfield 3.2 miles; Folkestone 8.2 miles; Canterbury 16.3 miles.

Sitting on the English Channel in Kent, South East England is the picturesque town and bustling ferry port of Dover. Dating back to the stone age and retaining a lot of its historic landmarks, whilst also enjoying the beauty of the South East coastline, it is unsurprising that Dover is a highly popular holiday destination. The town enjoys connections to France via its ferry port, however, Dover itself has plenty for visitors to rave about, including the fascinating Dover Museum & Bronze Age Boat Gallery, the breathtaking Dover Castle, the Western Heights of Dover with its marvellous fortifications, along with the famed Medieval Tunnels, to name a few. A walker's haven, Dover enjoys easy access to the winding trail along the dramatic White Cliffs of Dover, where the sights of the South Foreland Lighthouse, the Fan Bay Deep Shelter and St Margaret's Beach can be beheld, whilst also being within easy reach of the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where further excursions await. Dover is also home to a shingle beach that stretches along the strait, where visitors can soak up the impressive views of the coastal panorama on a stroll with a canine companion. Visitors can additionally tour the delightful Kearsney Abbey and Russell Gardens, before finishing the day off in one of Dover's fantastic eateries that line the harbour. For fun inland, guests can travel to Ashford, Maidstone or Canterbury, or they can check out the wonderful locations of Samphire Hoe, Folkestone, Margate and Ramsgate which can be found further along the coast.
