Honeypot Cottage is situated in an outstanding rural location at the foot of the Lympne escarpment on the edge of the Romney Marsh and adjacent to the Royal Military Canal. Set at the end of an unadopted track that runs parallel to canal, the cottage enjoys a truly special environment. Surrounded by an enchanting garden the property is immersed in the surrounding countryside, providing a wonderfully tranquil home.
The cottage offers very comfortable and generous living accommodation with well-proportioned rooms. The front door opens to a practical utility room, off which is a cloakroom. The adjacent kitchen/breakfast/dining room is an excellent family space arranged around an island; there is ample space for a large table. The room has a flagstone floor and is triple aspect with French doors opening to the garden. Beyond, to the centre of house, is a bright sitting room with oak floors and a fireplace to either end, one of which houses a wood-burning stove. Doors open to a large terrace stretching across the front of the house.
A further generous room is currently used as a study but also provides a superb bedroom, with French doors allowing beautiful views. A shower room completes the ground floor accommodation.
Stairs rise to the first floor and to a light and airy sitting area with a fabulous outlook up the slopes of the escarpment. Wooden flooring runs from here into the two bedrooms on either side, both of which share the family bathroom. The rooms enjoy delightful countryside views and the entire house has an extremely peaceful feel throughout.
This property has 0.56 acres of land.
Honeypot Cottage is approached over an unadopted track and a good distance from only two other properties located off the track. A driveway arrives at a carport and workshop.
The house is set in a beautiful south-facing gardens, close to the Royal Military Canal, providing a lovely setting with areas of lawn planted with mature trees. To one corner a conservatory or garden room, provides a sheltered space from which to enjoy the surroundings. Similarly, in another corner, a summer house is located next to a pretty pond with views back towards the house. Well stocked flower beds and borders frame the house, and the garden gives way to tranquil views over neighbouring meadows and across the Romney Marsh.
The Royal Military Canal at the bottom of the garden, beyond the track, provides opportunity for exploring the area by canoe or boat from the doorstep.
