A beautiful, beamed cottage in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; a great base for outdoor activities and for visiting cities and the coast.

A beautiful, beamed cottage in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; a great base for outdoor activities and for visiting cities and the coast.

A beautifully restored Grade II listed thatched barn dating back over 300 years, now divided into two beamed holiday cottages. They reside in the grounds of Boyke Manor, the owners’ 500-year-old home, where the great grandfather of Edward Elgar once lived.

Blackbird Cottage retains beams throughout and is spendidly furnished. Ideal for a family or two couples holidaying together it offers a wonderful retreat. A lovely shared garden can be enjoyed by all guests. Set in the unspoilt Elham Valley, an AONB, there are many outdoor activities available in the area. Walking, horse riding, cycling, wildlife viewing, golf, beaches and art and crafts are all easily accessible.

If you prefer the hustle and bustle of the city, then London can be reached in just 55 minutes via the fast train link, yet the peace of the countryside awaits your return. Don’t forget your passport either as day trips to France can be enjoyed from Dover, just 20 minutes away. Alternatively, discover historic Canterbury for great sightseeing and shopping.

    An exceptional cottage in a peaceful and beautifully maintained garden, the ideal 'away from it all' destination, but near enough to the coast and other attractions to find plenty to do if you can tear yourself away from the tranquillity. Owners are on site and are friendly but not intrusive. Free wifi but poor phone signal We will be returning

    Great cottage, fully equipped with everything you'd need & a spacious comfortable garden. Very welcoming hosts. Quirky layout only lends charm to the property. Farm shop next door, otherwise reasonably remote location. Would recommend.
