Self Catering Holiday Cottages in Sandwich Kent

St. John's Cottages are family - owned holiday cottages 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 the Old Hall from 1287.

The cottages stand in our own private garden, about 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 shops, a French delicatessen, an excellent butcher, farm shops & a small modern supermarket, plus many restaurants, pubs, art galleries, a town museum, a cinema with the latest films, and all small town facilities, many hidden to be discovered as our visitors stroll through the narrow streets.

The cottages are let regularly throughout the year, not just in the summer. We welcome winter weekend or midweek breaks.

The cottages are open for the Winter.
