Welcome to Monckton cottages Chilham.
Relax and unwind in a haven of peace and tranquility nestling in the Kent downs.
Three charming, peaceful, self-contained cottages, two with large private gardens set in c. 4 acres; part of a 500 year old Kentish Hall house and listed Grade II by English Heritage.
Perfect for relaxing and walking in beautiful surroundings. Overlooking Chilham Castle Park, nestling in an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ designated of significant landscape value by the government’s Natural England. The Kent chalk downlands, deciduous woods, historic forests, lakes, water meadows, apple and hop orchards provide the perfect setting in which to unwind.
A single-track Kentish lane passes the cottages and comes to a dead end after about 1/3 mile. It continues as an off road footpath into Kings’ Wood and Godmersham Park: this is part of the ancient Pilgrims’ Way to Canterbury and one of the UK’s National Trails, the North Downs Way.
The famous Tudor village of Chilham is about 1/3 of a mile; its stunning square surrounded by 15C timber framed houses is sometimes used for film sets. The village has two pubs, a train station, bus stop and Post Office. Groceries, fruit and vegetables are obtainable from nearby farm shops. Easy access to many of Kent’s attractions, its historic old towns, famous castles and gardens, the coast and nature reserves.
The historic cottages are in immaculate condition, well equipped with all modern facilities including free wifi; lovingly cared for by the same owners for the past 27 years ! Come and enjoy!
