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 of 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 and a small modern supermarket, plus many restaurants, pubs, art galleries, a town museum, a cinema with the latest films, and many other hidden gems, 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.


By Train

A ten-minute stroll across the market place and along the Rope Walk takes you to the railway station with its hourly direct service to and from London St. Pancras by High Speed. The journey is 1½ hours, and there is a slower service to and from London Charing Cross.

By Bus

Buses to nearby towns leave from very near the cottages.

By Car


The journey to Sandwich takes about two hours from London, one hour from the Dartford River Crossing, 40 minutes from the Channel Tunnel entrance, or 20 minutes from the cross-channel port of Dover.

The nearby Cathedral City of Canterbury, the channel port of Dover with its great castle, plus the many golf courses, nature reserves, gardens and other attractions, all make St. John's cottages an ideal base from which to discover the glories of Kent.
