  • "We have just returned from a glorious week spent in this property located in the heart of Kent’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty ."

    This cottage is beautifully presented with everything you could need for a perfect holiday . It is a real home from home but with a touch of elegance reflected in the exquisite attention to detail in the furnishings and high end linens. The location is perfectly placed to enjoy local site-seeing but sufficiently remote to enjoy a quiet idyllic escape to the country . The extensive grounds are perfect for both dogs and humans : our dog loved galloping around the grounds playing with the owner’s dog, whilst we had full access to the swimming pool and tennis court . This is the most beautiful home which caters for the most discerning travellers who wish to explore the beauty of Kent , enjoy a day by the pool or simply just want to cosy up and chill out by reviewing the books, games and movies available here. Shari and her family are the perfect most gracious hosts, going above and beyond to ensure that guests have the best holiday experience. We highly recommend this property and will look forward to returning in the future .

The property

Challock 1.6 miles.

Little Pontus is a quaint, annexe cottage settled in Molash near Challock, Kent.

Sitting within the Kent Downs AONB and surrounded by countryside, this pet-friendly cottage offers two guests a peaceful getaway with a beautifully furnished interior and a large, shared garden to enjoy a swimming pool and tennis court.

You'll find off-road parking on arrival as you walk through the garden and to the cottage entrance.

Inside, the contemporary kitchen/diner is fully equipped for home cooking and keeping your walking gear fresh, thanks to the integrated washing machine.

Serve romantic dinners at the table for two, or perhaps you'd prefer dining al fresco in the garden?

Although shared with the owner, guests are welcome to make use of the large, beautiful garden, whether that's cooking dinner on the barbecue, swimming in the outdoor unheated pool, playing tennis on the court, and wandering the fields beyond.

You can visit the greenhouses and pick from the vegetable patch with gardening gloves and tools provided.

Little Pontus also has a private, lawned garden just for guests with a shed to store bikes and walking equipment.

If you're visiting during the colder months, retreat to the light and welcoming sitting room with a sumptuous corner sofa, woodburning stove, and Smart TV with Sky for entertainment; musical guests are welcome to practise on the piano, too!

Climb the stairs to find a thoughtfully furnished, king-size bedroom with views of the idyllic gardens and white wooden furnishings.

In the mornings, freshen up in your en-suite shower room with a spacious walk-in shower to energise your day.

Little Pontus is a great base to explore Kent Downs AONB with walking and cycling paths from your doorstep, as well as traditional country pubs to take a break from the kitchen, such as The George Inn, The Halfway House in Challock, and The Wagon & Horses.

There are a range of attractions to visit in the Downs with Bluebell forest, Belmont House and Gardens, and Doddington Place Gardens at a Victorian Mansion.

Be sure to visit the picturesque Chilham with an ancient Castle offering tours and open days, or head to the Wye Downs nature reserve for scenic walks.

For a change of pace, head to the town of Ashford with restaurants ranging from Italian at Amici to Nepalese at Everest Inn Ashford, along with the Godinton House & Gardens, and Conningbrook Lakes Country Park.

Further afield, you'll find Faversham, the cathedral city of Canterbury, and the seaside town of Whitstable with lovely, shingle beaches.

For a romantic cottage in Kent, look no further than Little Pontus.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
