    “The cottage was marvellous in all ...”

    The cottage was marvellous in all aspects, very clean, tastefully decorated, and beautifully equipped. I especially enjoyed having breakfast on the patio while watching our dog playing in the yard. The entire estate is extraordinary - a former home for the poor built in the middle of the 19th century that was later converted to a hospital and now has the feel of a small village with beautiful cottages.

    The cottage was marvellous in all aspects, very clean, tastefully decorated, and beautifully equipped. I especially enjoyed having breakfast on the patio while watching our dog playing in the yard. The entire estate is extraordinary - a former home for the poor built in the middle of the 19th century that was later converted to a hospital and now has the feel of a small village with beautiful cottages. Herne Bay, Whitstable and Canterbury are easily accessible both by car and by bus. There are also many footpaths, and quite a few wonderful hikes started directly behind the cottage. The cottage is perfect for guests both with or without dogs. I highly recommend it! And in German: Wir waren das erstemal mit unserem Hund in England, und ich hatte nicht allzu viele Erwartungen an ein Cottage, wo Hunde erlaubt sind. Dieses war aber alles andere als ein Kompromiss: Eine wunderschöne Anlage, und ein großzügiges und sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtetes Cottage. Die Lage war sehr gut geeignet, um Kent zu erkunden. Es war aber auch sehr gut, dass der Hund sich gefahrlos im großzügigen Innenhof austoben konnte und man gleich von dort aus lange Spaziergänge im nahegelegenen Wald und auf den Feldern machen konnte. Von den Feldern aus konnte man das Meer leuchten sehen! Eine Bushaltestelle war gleich an der - allerdings recht stark befahrenen Straße - hinter der Anlage, man hätte also auch gut ohne Auto nach Canterbury, Herne Bay und Whitstable kommen können (und vor dort problemlos nach London, Rochester, Broadstairs ...) Wir hatten einen sehr schönen Urlaub dort! Mrs. Hoelscher and family, Bremen, Germany

The property

Herne 1 mile.

This beautiful holiday home is part of a residential complex that sits just outside the village of Herne in Kent.

This cottage has stylish, contemporary accommodation ideal for small families or couples looking to stay in a quiet location where walks and woodland are just outside your door.

The ground floor comprises a spacious sitting room and well-equipped kitchen with dining area, a perfect place to sit enjoying time together whilst sharing a bottle of locally brewed ale, which can be bought from the micropub just a short walk away.

Upstairs there are two attractive bedrooms, the master with a double bed.

A second bedroom with adult bunk beds and family bathroom make up the first floor.

Views from the windows, which run along the upper hallway look down over the communal gardens.

The rear courtyard garden is enclosed by a white picket fence and has an archway with a grape vine growing over it, enhancing the beauty of this charming cottage.

This is a lovely spot to sit and read on a sunny morning whilst watching your children and dog play, as you plan your activities for the day ahead.

Within a few minutes of leaving this holiday cottage you can find yourself walking through Blean Woods where dogs are welcomed and waymarked trails are signposted.

With over four hectares of woods and meadows to explore, this beautiful part of the Kent countryside is now a nature reserve with a conservation order protecting trees, flora and fauna.

In the springtime the woodland is carpeted with a beautiful display of bluebells and wood anemone.

If you feel like a day of historic adventures, shopping and eating, followed by an evening at the theatre then head to Canterbury which is certain to have you enthralled whatever the time of year.

A day on the beach, complete with a paddle in the sea and an ice cream sundae will surely appeal to your little ones, so be sure to visit Herne Bay which is just a hop, skip and jump away.

Whether you are looking for a summer holiday or just a winter weekend away, this lovely home is sure to offers guests a time to remember.
