  • "The house was lovely and the position perfect."

    Faversham is a really nice compact town. Very interesting museum if it’s a rainy day and even has a cinema. You can easily find enough to do if you are there for a week. Would highly recommend.

    Thank you for your lovely comments, we’re so pleased you enjoyed yourselves. We love the position too. Property Owner

  • "This was a wonderful cottage and a fantastic part of England to visit."

    Interaction with the property owners was easy and they had though about everything you would need if away from your own home. This cottage is my new standard for the future. The local area has much to visit, and many teashops. We even got to the Hornby/Airfix factory, and Faversham and Sandwich are great places to while away the day.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. We’re so glad you enjoyed your visit and hope to welcome you back in the future to explore the area further. Property Owner

The property

46 By the Creek is a sympathetically renovated traditional brick cottage situated, as its name suggests, on Faversham Creek.

This mid-terrace property has everything you need for a self-catered stay, perfect for a small family, friends or two couples looking to explore the Kent coastline, historic towns, or countryside.

The living room is a charming sunny room facing the creek where you can watch the tide ebb and flow․ For cooler evenings, the original brick fireplace houses an electric stove which can also be used to provide a cosy glow without heat.

With a fully kitted-out kitchen and separate full sized dining room, you can cook as much as you wish․ Attached to the dining room is a rear entry porch: convenient for leaving your walking gear.

Beyond the kitchen is a bright garden room that opens out onto a sheltered patio which enjoys full sun all day during the summer and is popular with a variety of birds․ A path leads past the small pond to a further natural garden. Upstairs are two fully-furnished bedrooms; the front bedroom benefits from a full-length window, looking across to small sailing barges moored on the far side of the creek and oystercatchers wading at low tide.

There is a delightful bright shower room on this floor, with an additional WC downstairs.

All the pleasures of Medieval Faversham are within a short level walk, where historic buildings, coffee shops and eateries, pubs and antique shops await․ The mock Tudor Royal Cinema where you can watch current releases, or head to Faversham Pools, offering indoor and outdoor swimming complete with diving boards.

If you’re looking for a break from cooking, a few steps from the cottage you’ll find The Albion Taverna․ If Mexican food is not your cuisine of choice, there are lots of other eateries to choose from within a short walk, such as Posillipo (Italian). On the far side of the creek is Standard Quay, home to historic buildings housing antique shops, food and drink etc․ while a few steps further take you to Iron Wharf boatyard․ Stop for a coffee at Quint’s Retreat before heading out along Saxon Shore.

46 By the Creek is positioned on the England Coast Path leading to Saxon Shore Way․ For a short walk, cross the fields to Hollowshore, on the Swale estuary, and enjoy a pint or two at The Shipwright’s Arms.

For the more energetic, cross the creek and follow the Saxon Shore route to Whitstable, famous for its oysters․ Sit on the beach and watch the glorious sunset while savouring fish and chips or have a well-earned drink at The Old Neptune; a welcoming pub on the Beach. Inland, a short drive will take you to Canterbury with its stunning cathedral; admire Chilham’s historic architecture, location of many films, take a picnic to Mount Ephraim Gardens or explore the North Downs.

The Kent coast offers a variety of experiences․ Including Herne Bay with its promenade and pier; Reculver Towers and Roman fort․ Follow the coast round to Margate with its eclectic mix of ‘kiss me quick’ seafront with its wide sandy beach and trendy cultural quarter․ Broadstairs, a delightful old-fashioned seaside popular with families and favourite of Charles Dickens, leads on to Ramsgate with its bustling harbour.

Nature lovers will want to visit Oare Marshes, or Sheppey with its nature reserves and RSPB viewing point within a scenic drive.

Whether you’re looking for coast, historic buildings, exploring nature or just somewhere to chill, 46 By the Creek offers the perfect base for you.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location

FAVERSHAM

Chilham 7 miles; Whitstable 9 miles; Canterbury 9 miles.

Faversham is a charming market town in the heart of Kent. With many interesting places to see and things to do, this lovely town offers visitors the chance to explore, shop, cycle, walk, swim, or dine out, and also boasts the oldest brewery in Britain dating back to 1698. It was due to the brewery that "hop picking" became the family holiday for many living in London, right up until the 1950s. During the summer, thousands of people would descend on the fields around Faversham, set up camp and spend the days "hop picking", thus making this one of the best places to enjoy a pint or two! Faversham is proud of its history, was named in the Domesday Book and, with its cobbled streets and medieval houses, tiny quaint pubs and many listed buildings, this town enjoys remembering its fascinating history. For those looking to experience the outdoor life, Faversham has plenty to keep you entertained, why not take a swim in one of the year-round swimming pools? Take a walk around Oare Gunpowder Works Country Park, or explore Perry Wood. Take part in a taster session rowing along the creek. All this on your doorstep, while a short drive offers so many different experiences inland and coastal. For those who want to explore even further afield then why not sail away on a ferry or travel on the Channel Tunnel, either way you can be in France or Belgium in time for lunch and back in time for supper! This is a wonderful area and well worth exploring.
