A delightful conversion with period features standing in the grounds of the owner's home at the centre of this pretty village, just perfect for two and a babe in arms. This charming property has been beautifully furnished and fitted with great care, quality and consideration.  There is a mezzanine bedroom with en-suite bathroom and the property has a small patio with garden furniture and a firepit. The property is adjacent to the newly reinstated 18th century serpentine walk that was a familiar route for Jane Austen when visiting her brother on the nearby Goodnestone estate.  The village pub The Fitzwalter Arms, which serves food is also just a few steps along the road.  The owner's chickens are kept across the road and you will be invited to go and collect your own free range eggs, or in Spring to go and meet their new born lambs.

Out and About:
This is a perfect spot for lovers of nature, the countryside and walkers. Just a few minutes walk is the beautiful Goodnestone Park with its delightful gardens and tearoom, a favourite place to stay for Jane Austen. Wingham Wildlife park and Howletts zoo are great places to visit for both young and old. Gibsons Farm shop is a half an hour's walk or 5 minutes by car, for your culinary delights and ingredients, locally produced meats, ready meals, florist, cafe and an array of Kent produce. The seaside towns of Deal, Sandwich and Ramsgate are within easy reach for a lovely day out by the sea, and the cathedral city of Canterbury is just 20 minutes drive away.

Fantastic cottage and a great location. Really well equipped and like a TARDIS much bigger inside than looks outside. Pubs nearby worth a visit as is the farmshop.

Mr B,

Lovely short break in a lovely cottage. Location being close to Canterbury and equally close to the Kent coast makes it an ideal location for a holiday

Mr E,

We had a lovely weekend staying in the Nut Hatch. Emma ensured the log burner was lit and provided fresh milk, eggs and biscuits for our arrival. The cottage was beautiful decorated with comfortable beds and sofa and all the amenities we required for our relaxing break
