St. John's Cottages, Sandwich Kent
St. John’s Cottages are family - owned Holiday Homes to let in the heart of the Ancient Cinque Port of Sandwich, Kent; the Garden of England.
The refurbished Georgian cottages were built in 1805, replacing one of 1287.
The cottages stand in our own private garden, about 120ft (36m) back from the street, well away from traffic but right in the town centre. The cottages also have their own individual gardens or yards.
The market town of Sandwich has interesting old shops, a small modern supermarket, plus many restaurants, pubs, art galleries, a town museum, a cinema, and all small town facilities, many hidden to be discovered as our visitors stroll through the narrow streets.
The nearby Cathedral City of Canterbury, the channel ports of Dover and Folkestone plus the many golf courses, nature reserves, gardens and other attractions, all make St. John’s cottages an ideal base to discover Kent, the Garden of England.
A ten-minute stroll across the market place and along the Rope Walk takes you to the train station with its hourly service direct to London (Charing Cross) via Dover and Folkestone. Buses to nearby towns leave from near the cottages.
The cottages are let regularly throughout the year, not just in the summer. Winter weekend or midweek breaks are very popular. If you let us know what time you will be arriving, we will light the fire, and have everything ready for you.
The journey takes about two hours from central London, one hour from the Dartford River Crossing, 40 minutes from the Channel Tunnel entrance, or 20 minutes from the cross-channel ports of Dover and Ramsgate.
"Having lived in Sandwich at 6 Moat Sole since 1960 we love the old town dearly, and we hope that you will enjoy Sandwich and East Kent as much as we do."
Robert and Claudia Maxtone-Graham
