Idyllically positioned in a peaceful cul-de-sac, in the desirable Saint Dunstan's area of Canterbury, in Kent, rests this contemporary two-bedroom holiday home, Gingerbread Cottage. Boasting a homely and welcoming interior and enjoying close proximity to a host of amenities and attractions, Gingerbread Cottage makes the perfect place for exploring the delights of this sought-after region. Park up on the roadside and enter this delightful dwelling through its ‘front’ door, located on the right side of this cleverly designed and inviting home. The hallway, stylishly adorned with Victorian tiles, leads you into the open-plan living/dining room, where you can look forward to gathering together at the rustic dining table to indulge in the fruits of your labour before snuggling up in front of the glow of the wood-burning stove, or settling down for a movie marathon, courtesy of the Smart TV. From the snug step into the contemporary kitchen, beautifully appointed with an elegant blue décor and full granite worktops, fitted with a range of fantastic facilities including a handy dishwasher and washing machine. In the warmer months, carry the conversation outdoors with a sociable seat amongst the greenery of your private garden, a truly tranquil spot to soak in the last of the evening sun with your favourite tipple. When day draws to night, climb the stairs to the first floor where you'll find the family bathroom and two double bedrooms, each thoughtfully positioned under the vaulted ceiling, providing a wonderfully airy ambiance. In the morning, kick-start your day with an invigorating rinse in the spacious walk-in shower located on the ground floor, or pour in the bubbles for an indulgent soak in the elegant roll-top bath on the first floor. Take advantage of your central location and follow the footpath leading into the heart of the bustling city of Canterbury, just a short walk away, where you'll find a host of sights and attractions to keep you entertained, including the medieval ruins of Canterbury Castle, the subterranean Roman history museum, and the oldest cathedral in England, dating back 1400 years. Canterbury has been a site of pilgrimage since Chaucer’s day and as well as Canterbury Cathedral itself there is St Dunstan, which reputedly houses the head of St Thomas More, and the Roman Catholic Church of St Thomas of Canterbury, where relics of Thomas Becket himself are enshrined. Gingerbread Cottage is also just a stone's throw away from Canterbury West train station to explore further afield! Test your survival skills at Escape In The Towers, a thrilling escape room set within Canterbury's former city jail or catch a live performance at The Marlowe Theatre followed by a pint of real ale at Canterbury Tales. Keep the little ones entertained and come face-to-face with the farmyard animals at Druidstone Park, or travel to the coast of Herne Bay where you can expect thrills aboard the rides on the pier or make a splash at the beach. Jump in the car and journey to the town of Chatham and treat yourself to a spot of retail therapy at The Pentagon Shopping Centre, immerse yourself in maritime history with a tour of The Historic Dockyard Chatham, or charter a yacht and sail along the waters of the River Medway. The cottage is well situated for a visit to the North Downs, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where you'll find a plethora of walking, hiking and cycling trails, leading you through rolling hills, open moorland and deep valleys. With all of this and more, choose Gingerbread Cottage as your base to tour the hidden gems of Kent.
