The cottage itself can be seen by clicking on "Interior Photos". It is not suitable for young children due to the proximity of the cliff edge, but fine for older people (two small steps) and for well-behaved pets. Due to the layout of the property it is not really suited to wheel chairs. NO SMOKERS.
There are 3 double bedrooms. A pleasant sitting-room (with an open fireplace) looking out to sea, with sliding double-glazed windows on 3 sides: a tiny modern kitchen fitted with Ikea cupboards, fridge-freezer, oven, dishwasher, microwave, a separate WC, new bathroom with basin, bath and tiled walk-in shower with excellent pressure. There is even an airing cupboard to keep linen warm. Towels are NOT provided except for Overseas visitors on request.
The shingle beach is very near (7 mins. walk) and there are many other delightful walks - to Dover over the cliff tops, to Kingsdown and Sandwich. Canterbury, Folkestone, Leeds Castle, Sissinghurst Gardens, Rye, Walmer, Chilham and of course France, are all a short drive away.
The road to the cottage from the village is pretty poor so drivers of precious cars beware!
