This cosy end-of-terrace cottage is situated in a quiet country lane on the North Downs Way, on the outskirts of the attractive village of Boughton Lees - rural, though not isolated. The village itself offers a cricket green with a popular pub overlooking it.
It is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with accessible countryside all around - hills, woods, long distance and local footpaths, nature reserves and much more.

However, it has been comfortably modernised and offers TWO BEDROOMS - a twin and a single. The BATHROOM has a washbasin, toilet, electric shower over the bath, shaver point and heated towel rail.
The LOUNGE has a settee, chairs, TV, DVD, books, maps, and an open fire with logs provided for cool evenings. The KITCHEN-DINER is all-electric with cooker, fridge with small freezing compartment, kettle, toaster, microwave, washing machine, tumble drier and iron. There is a SMALL CONSERVATORY leading from the kitchen to a secluded garden, with chairs and a table.
There are electric convector heaters in each room for instant heat, and night storage heaters for cold weather. The water is heated by an immersion heater. Bed linen is provided.
Telephone for emergencies only. The cottage is ½ a mile from the main road (A28) between Ashford 3½ miles, and Canterbury 11½ miles. The attractive and thriving village of Wye is about 2 miles away on the far side of the A28.
Wye has excellent restaurants, a variety of shops including a bakery, small supermarket, Post Office and station. There is a Farm Shop even nearer. Boughton is not well-served by buses, but there is a good train service from Wye (easy parking) which links with Ashford International Station making for easy access to London, and across the Channel by ferry from Dover, and the Channel Tunnel from Folkestone (each about 40 minutes by road).
