  • "A great holiday cottage, this having been the second year we have visited."

    The most comfortable beds. Great position with a wonderful atmosphere. Nicely arranged kitchen with everything we wanted/needed. Only downsides are the palm in the yard as it stops the cobblestones drying out and blocks out the sunlight and the lack of comfortable seating in the snug. We would recommend and will be back.

  • "A beautiful historic cottage perfectly situated in lovely Sandwich."

    Although historic the modern facilities and decoration were excellent. Couldn’t fault it and would definitely recommend.

  • "Tudor Cottage is a delightful place to stay in the heart of Sandwich."

    It is clean and cosy and is very well equipped with everything you could need for a comfortable stay. The little courtyard is a lovely place to sit.

  • "We enjoyed our stay here earlier this year and returned again for New Year."

    The cottage is charming with oak beams, and cosy, with everything that we needed provided. We love the location, which is within easy walking distance of several very good restaurants and shops.

  • "Tudor Cottage is the perfect English country cottage."

    Bags of character and spotlessly clean. The owner is helpful without being intrusive. Lots to see and do nearby.

  • "A quirky cottage, quite a dark front room but lots of lamps."

    The kitchen is small but very well equipped only lacking a small towel to save having to wipe hands on the tea towel. The settees in the back room do get a bit uncomfortable after a while. The stairs are a bit of a challenge but the bedrooms and bathroom are lovely. Again another hand towel would be welcome. Overall we enjoyed our stay in Tudor cottage and Sandwich is a really lovely little town, full of character.

  • "Tudor Cottage is a lovely and very special place to stay."

    It has all the modern comforts - we love the bath in the bedroom - but so much antique charm and atmosphere. It's also perfectly placed to explore Sandwich and the area. We walked to Deal for a swim and then hopped on the bus back one day, explored the Roman fort at Richborough the next. Ian was extremely helpful and we hope to come back soon

    Thank you so much for your great review. The walks and cycle paths in the area are fantastic - we walk along the “Saxon Shore Way” along the bank of the Stour to Richborough Roman Fort in one direction and across the St George’s Golf course to get to the beach and Deal. Both are easy and flat. Please come again soon and explore the many other local sites ! Property Owner

    Tudor Cottage is a wonderful property, comfortable beds, lovely bathroom and a perfectly formed kitchen Having once lived in Sandwich I couldn’t have imagined a better holiday property to stay in. I hope to be able to return soon..

    Thank you so much for your wonderful review, and so glad you enjoyed your stay. We would welcome you back anytime in the future! Ian and Emma Property Owner

  • "To follow on from the positive feedback I left at the cottage for the owner."

    A party of two adults and two children, we thoroughly enjoyed our time at Tudor Cottage. A charming cottage in a charming small town. All facilities were first class and the accommodation spotlessly clean. We all wished we had booked a longer stay to do justice to the area.

  • "Very sympathetically restored and characterful Tudor property."

    It's always a joy to arrive at a place that smells fresh and clean, no greasy ovenware (happens all too often, sadly!), and everything clearly presented concerning utilities. Again, there are places where one can spend a lot of the first day of arrival dealing with niggles and problems - with Tudor Cottage, I am happy to say that this did not occur. So, Kudos! We managed to park free for the whole seek in Sandown Road which was only a 5 minute walk away, in a safe part of town. We unloaded and loaded in Short Street using 'hazard warning lights' and this didn't cause any road rage, fortunately. The courtyard garden is a lovely place to sit - only wish I had been there on a hot summer's day to really enjoy it! Was great watching the planes flying overheard underneath the shade and swish of the palm tree leaves ;) Thank You. Honey Reed

    We had a lovely sunny weekend, great food and wine and lovely walks to the sea and even a paddle! Owner was really helpful with information on local area and restaurants. Thank you

    Thank you for such positive feedback - we love walking through The Royal St George’s Golf course to get to the beach. You may even be able to see the seals along the estuary in Pegwell Bay Country Park on a good day ! Property Owner

  • "Really nice property."

    Recently refurbished in a way that suited the original architecture. Very centrally located for the shops and restaurants in Sandwich. The owner quickly responded to queries from us. Will hopefully be back there some time...

    Thank you for your positive feedback and we’re delighted you enjoyed your stay. Sandwich is a beautiful place to discover and with so much to explore (an undiscovered gem, we think). We would welcome you back. Property Owner

The property

Perched in the port town of Sandwich in Kent, is the superb 16th-century Tudor Cottage which has its own private entrance.

Enjoying an abundance of character throughout its interior, including exposed beams, as well as easy access to the local amenities and coast, Tudor Cottage is a wonderful base for a family of five.

Step into the dining room, where you can look forward to long lazy dinners and recounting the days adventures.

Evenings can be spent relaxing in the inviting sitting room, with plush seating and a Smart TV to keep you entertained, as well as a woodburning stove.

Impress your guests with flavourful recipes cooked up in the well-equipped kitchen, before choosing to dine at the table for six or alfresco in the rear walled courtyard.

Climb the stairs to the first floor, where you can throw the days clothes into the handy washing machine, before enjoying a leisurely soak in the bath or refreshing shower.

As your eyes grow heavy, choose from three well-presented bedrooms to catch your rest in, a king-size with Simba mattress and freestanding slipper bath, a twin room with TV and firestick, and an additional single with plenty of storage.

In the morning, wake-up tired eyes with a steaming cup of coffee courtesy of the Dolce Gusto coffee maker and plan the day's adventures.

Take advantage of your prime location along the thriving high street, where you will find a fantastic selection of pubs, restaurants and cafes to suit every taste and budget.

There is plenty to do in the town, including the Sandwich Guildhall Museum, the White Mill Rural Heritage Museum and the Gazen Salts Nature Reserve, sure to entice any keen wildlife enthusiasts.

Keen golfers will also delight at the close proximity of the two championship courses nearby, the Royal St. George and Princes, or if that isn’t your thing, why not take a boat trip along the River Stour or embark on a trip to see the seals which frequent the shores.

Be sure to check out the nearby Sandwich Bay Bird Observatory Trust, where you can expect a plethora of wildlife, along with courses and evening talks.

For a fun-filled day out with your loved ones, head to Wingham where you can explore the delights of the Wingham Wildlife Park, followed by lunch at the 13th-century Dog at Wingham.

Embark on a two-footed adventure or a bike ride through the breath-taking Kent Downs, where you can experience the best views and scenery the region has to offer and the attractions of Belmont House and Gardens, Bredgar & Wormshill Railway, and Kearsney Abbey.

Be sure to make a stop at Dover, where you can walk along the famous White Cliffs of Dover and visit the historic Dover Castle.

All this and more awaits with a stay at Tudor Cottage.

About the location

SANDWICH

Eastry 3.0 miles.

Sandwich is one of the original five Cinque Ports that grew rich by providing ships for the monarch before the establishment of a regular navy It is 2 miles from the coast. The river is now perfect for taking pleasure boat trips either to view the seals basking near Pegwell Bay or to explore the magnificent ruins of a Roman town at Richborough. This atmospheric site is run by English Heritage and provides a fascinating insight into how life was during the Roman occupation. With its ancient buildings, nature reserves, golf courses, delightful country pubs, cafés and restaurants, the medieval Cinque Port of Sandwich is a must to visit for the tourist. Sandwich is also surrounded by small picturesque villages, such as Eastry, Ash, Worth and Woodnesborough, and within easy reach are the nearby towns of Canterbury and the Port of Dover. Sandwich has particular appeal to golfers as it is home to the Royal St George's Golf Club once described as the “most beautiful seaside golf course in the world".
