Willow Tree House
3 bedrooms, sleeps 6

This stunning and unusual Grade II listed country property with a large, enclosed garden is ideal for families wishing to discover all that Kent has to offer.

Willow Tree House is a unique countryside retreat with plenty of space, walks from the doorstop and a host of things to do close by to keep all the family entertained. Willow Tree House is centred on Dovecote, built for Sir William Lynch in 1750 as part of the Groves Estate. An extremely attractive detached building which is Grade II listed, Willow Tree House is made of plum brick with red dressing and an hexagonal roof which gives it a quirky charm. The house has been sympathetically converted to make a comfortable family home; wrapped round by beautiful gardens with plenty of lawn space, Willow Tree House has gorgeous views across rolling Kentish countryside giving a sense of true peace and tranquillity. Inside, the warmth and charm of the picturesque kitchen, with its post-box red Rayburn cooker and large, sunny windows, will attract the whole family who will while away hours chatting round the scrubbed wooden kitchen table.

Two living rooms are on the ground floor; in the octagonal room is a small wood burner and wooden floors. The second sitting room is a retreat from it all with a gas fire, TV, DVD player and a wall filled with books with which to curl up and read on lazy evenings. Upstairs, the master bedroom is a delight with a king size brass bed, stripped wooden floors and stunning views from the generous windows. If you can tear yourself away from the house and gardens, a whole host of activities including canoeing, horse-riding, surfing, shopping, birdwatching, punting, exploring Canterbury cathedral (a World Heritage Site), feasting on oysters in Whitstable, golf and fishing are all available within a short drive.

Canterbury town centre offers all the shops, restaurants, pubs and clubs one could wish for and is only 9 miles away. Broadstairs, Ramsgate, and Sandwich Bay Beach are just a few of the sandy beaches within a 20-30 minute drive. There is a bus stop within walking distance with hourly buses running to Sandwich and Canterbury. Shop and restaurant 2½ miles, pub 1 mile. Willow Tree House can be booked together with The Bothy (UKC1061) and Gamekeeper’s Cottage (UKC1062) to accommodate up to 12 guests.
