This is a wonderfully characterful 16th Century Kentish Weather-boarded Lodge situated in the heart of a lovely village just a few minutes drive from the port of Dover.
With nine ensuite bedrooms and large entertaining space as well as its own penthouse apartment it’s one of the areas most sought after places to stay.
Only a few minutes walk from the beach at St. Margaret’s Bay and just along the coast from the vibrant coastal town of Deal.
There is a FOUR-POSTER room – Upstairs in the old house, overlooking the church and garden with a free-standing double-ended bath at the foot of the oak bed and a double shower in the ensuite bathroom. (Approx. 28sqm)
There are six OLD SCHOOL rooms – Irregular shapes and size with a traditional yet fresh feel. Each room is represented by a locally resident artist, with interiors reflecting the artwork. (Approx. 18-20sqm)
One COSY BOLTHOLE – a small double bedded rooms (4ft wide bed). This is super-cosy at approx. 12sqm and is a good option for single use. This room will accommodate two people but it is tiny; so intimate, cosy and snug are keywords here! It’s also up a narrow very steep staircase so not ideal for anyone with mobility issues.
A FAMILY APARTMENT – The Loft Family Apartment is upstairs on the top floor of the old house with two double bedrooms and single bed in the lounge, a bathroom and living space with galley kitchen – please note there is no oven or hob in here. There are also low ceilings in some areas and in the bathroom the shower is not full height due to roof slope and low water pressure at the top of the ancient building, so not ideal for people with mobility issues. (Approx. 28sqm)
All rooms have cotton linen and towels, Faith in Nature bath amenities and free WIFI.
In the stone-floored lounge there is a lovely old piano in the snug with plenty of comfy seating, there’s also a log fire and exposed beam ceilings.
There’s a wood-burning stove to cosy around in winter and in summer open up the doors to the garden out back for perfect summer living.
With seating for up to 40 people the dining room has a number of old French kitchen tables and rattan chairs. The beamed ceilings and wooden floors give it a light, airy feel with vintage Farrow and Ball colours and contemporary works from the South East Kent art scene on the walls.
This place is a sun trap in summer with lots of places to sit and enjoy the sun or shade under the permanent gazebo decked dining area. There’s a tin-roofed pizza shack with wood-fired oven.
