An unlisted period cottage.

Little Ansdore is a charming country cottage that dates back to the 19th Century with later additions. A delightful rural retreat, being quiet, calm, and surrounded by beautiful countryside. Offering sanctuary and escape from the hustle and bustle, it is the ideal place to relax and unwind.

The house has a decent footprint and, with some reconfiguration or enlargement, could provide further bedrooms and accommodation if desired, subject to any necessary consents. Permission for the erection of a detached garage/store and pitched roof over flat roofed extensions was previously granted but has now lapsed. Details can be found on Canterbury planning portal under ref; CA//09/00241.

On the ground floor are four good-size reception rooms, including an impressive vaulted kitchen/dining room featuring modern units, tiled flooring and an integrated hob and oven. Skylights allow plenty of natural light to flow in.

Leading off the kitchen is the bright sitting room that is currently used as a dining space. Adjacent is the larger family room complete with a wood-burning stove, exposed beams, and triple aspect windows with charming views over the surrounding countryside.

Also on the ground floor is a cosy study, a cloakroom with shower, and a useful utility room with direct access into the property’s sizeable garage.

Upstairs, there are two double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The principal bedroom also benefits from built-in wardrobes and dual aspect windows.

This property has 0.4 acres of land.


Little Ansdore sits within a lovely rural location and benefits from a good sized garden. There is a short driveway with space for two cars to park, in addition to a double garage that extends back to a spacious storage area.

The property’s generous rear garden includes a large stretch of lawn as well as mature shrubs and trees. There is a summer house located at the bottom of the garden, where there is a beautiful outlook across the surrounding countryside.


The picturesque village of Petham benefits from a well-regarded primary school, a recreation ground, a local church and an active community village hall. The countryside around Petham is designated an AONB, providing a lovely environment for walking, riding and cycling. Nearby Canterbury offers a wide range of cultural, sporting and recreational amenities. In particular, there is a good range of educational facilities, both in the independent and state sectors.
