Holiday Rental House
Keepers Cottages are delighted to present Pond Cottage. The grade II listed building, situated in the ancient village of Adisham, was once a pair of 17th Century dwellings & has clear views across to the village green – the former pond possessing an intriguing history – and the imposing Norman church of The Holy Innocents. The property has recently been extensively renovated to a very high standard. The result is a stunning light-filled house providing for a relaxing, comfortable & unique holiday, while retaining the historic authenticity of this exquisite family home. Careful research has gone into sourcing furniture and fittings, with particular attention given to the colour pallet of each room. A feast for the eyes is presented through each doorway.

The grade II listed building, situated in the ancient village of Adisham, was once a pair of 17th Century dwellings & has clear views across to the village green – the former pond possessing an intriguing history – and the imposing Norman church of The Holy Innocents. The property has recently been extensively renovated to a very high standard. The result is a stunning light-filled house providing for a relaxing, comfortable & unique holiday, while retaining the historic authenticity of this exquisite family home. Careful research has gone into sourcing furniture and fittings, with particular attention given to the colour pallet of each room. A feast for the eyes is presented through each doorway. There are refurbished wooden floors throughout, a fully equipped kitchen with underfloor heating & casual dining area, useful utility room, formal dining room, 2 reception rooms and 5 bedrooms. A large upstairs bathroom is complemented by a spacious downstairs shower room. The gated garden wraps around the full width and side of the house, where a generous gravel drive easily accommodates 3 cars. The beautiful large garden is planted with birch trees, willow and eucalyptus as well as mature apple trees, damson, plum trees and cherry, along with informal flowerbeds and open lawns. There is a securely covered well and a tree house for children to be used under adult supervision. The village's railway station (8 mins walk) runs direct services to London Victoria, central Canterbury and Dover. Deal, Sandwich and Whitstable are 20 minutes drive, with Canterbury 10 minutes away. Journey time from Canterbury to London via the hi-speed rail to St Pancras is less than an hour. The cottage is near the North Downs Way, with easily accessed trails through the village's woods containing sweet chestnuts and diverse tree species. The area is popular with walkers and cyclists. The region is known for its high quality local produce, game and vineyards, village pubs, as well as visitor attractions, historic destinations and wildlife parks.More
