Dargate, Nr Canterbury
Escape to the country at this delightful period holiday cottage retreat near Whitstable. Perfectly formed for a couple yet offering the most surprising amount of space. Quirky low doorways, heavy beamed sitting room and a huge inglenook fireplace add to the charm of this listed building. In summer the wrap-around gardens are salvation at the end of a busy day and in winter huddling up by the fire perhaps after a pub lunch less than two minutes walk away will be the order of the day.

The historic city of Canterbury is only 6 miles away with the magnificent Cathedral, an abundance of eateries and for those who like to shop and good selection of high street stores and boutique shops.
Set in the North Downs of Kent, there are beautiful walks and cycling straight from the house. The Kent coast can be reached within 20 minutes, including the fishing town of Whitstable famed for its oysters, and Dover with its historic castle and white cliffs. If you are a keen golfer there is a choice of good courses nearby, including Royal St Georges in Sandwich being only 30 minutes by car.
Nice place to be 4.2/5
We enjoyed our time at plumpudding cottage. We loved the place. A very good platform to explore Kent and the Southeast of England.

Ideal cottage 4.8/5
A lovely cottage ideally situated for visits to friends and family in East Kent. Loved the quiet rural setting and the peace and sunshine in the garden. Very comfortable.
