The cottages are about a third of a mile from Chilham Square.  One of the finest Medieval squares in England, this unique, beautiful open public space is surrounded by Fifteenth Century timber framed houses on its north and south sides with the entrance to the Castle and Church on its west and east sides.

The  Square sits on a  promontory in chalk downland, overlooking a bend in the River Stour  and it is a typical nucleated or clustered medieval settlement with four steep lanes leading up from a valley onto a hill with houses around a square and church.

Chilham has two pubs, tea rooms, a train station, bus stop, Post Office and doctor’s surgery. Groceries, fruit, vegetables, cider and other local produce are obtainable from nearby  Chilham Shop and  Badgers Hill Farm nearby. Canterbury 6 miles.
