This cottage in Kent is situated in the heart of the pretty village of Stodmarsh, known for its stunning scenery, famous nature reserve and quiet living. Just a short stroll away and you will find the poplar pub The Red Lion, a family run business, welcoming and renowned locally for its good food and local ales.

The cottage is surrounded by lovely open countryside upon a working arable farm, boarding with the Stodmarsh National nature reserve, that covers a square mile of internationally-important grassland and open water, which provide an ideal habitat for rare birds and plants, including Bittern, Marsh Harriers and the shining Ramshorn snail, all rare breeds across Europe.

Wonderful walks can be found in all directions and for those enthusiasts a walk along the River Stour can be enjoyed in the direction of Canterbury.

The Westbere lakes neighbour the town and not only can you watch the professional rowing that takes place on the lakes but also the wildlife and walks in the area are extensive and there to be enjoyed.

The Trenley Park Riding Establishment is conveniently located a mile up the road from the cottage, where you can hire horses for hacking or receive riding tuition. The area is also popular for coarse fishing and can be found nearby at the local lakes.

The medieval city of Canterbury, 4 miles away, is best explored by foot and visitors who take the time to walk the bustling and intriguing side streets will find a wonderful variety of shops, pubs and chic cafes. The City offers the dramatic backdrop of the Historic cathedral which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site and is a must for any visit to Canterbury.

For golfers, Canterbury Golf Club is within a mile with several of the best known links courses in the country at Royal St Georges, Sandwich and Royal Cinque Ports in Deal, both within a 30 minute drive.
