Plum Pudding Cottage

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.

Extras and Experiences


Lovely stay 5/5

We had a wonderful stay at Plum Pudding Cottage. The location is within easy walking distance of three pubs. It is also close to both Whitstable and Canterbury. The kitchen and bathroom are up to date and modern. The rural location is exactly what we were looking for.

We didn't want to leave! 5/5

What a beautiful cottage!! Loved the welcome gift. The property itself was very clean on arrival and had all the things we needed. Location is perfect for day trips or walks from the property. The orchard was a big plus, because we stayed together with our 2 Rhodesian Ridgebacks. They could play and run around in the huge orchard. Such a pleasure both for us and the dogs.
