A beautifully presented cottage in an idyllic rural setting with enchanting views.

2 Claycourt Cottages is a delightful semi-detached Victorian Cottage set in a glorious rural, yet highly accessible location to Canterbury City. Extended over the years, the cottage provides charming and spacious family accommodation. The tranquil setting offers complete peace and seclusion, with beautiful views and walks on your doorstep. The front door opens to a bright, double aspect hall with quarry tiled floor. Beyond this is a practical utility and shower room which can also be accessed from the kitchen. A door from the hall opens to an open plan sitting/dining room. With a brick fireplace and large sash window to the sitting area and a wood burner in the dining room, together they provide a generous space. Double doors open to an airy kitchen having a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and skylights allowing plenty of light. Timeless, Shaker style units provide plenty of storage with wooden work surfaces; a stable door leads to the garden. Adjoining this, also at the back of the house is a further bright sitting room with stunning views over neighbouring farmland to the side; double glazed doors and windows stretch across the rear wall giving an outlook to the garden.

Stairs rise to the first floor where there are four bedrooms, two of which - including the principal bedroom - are double aspect and enjoy the wonderful open views. All have fitted wardrobes and are served by a family bathroom with a free-standing bath.


The pretty garden is bordered by woodland and mature shrubs, with blossom and fruit trees adding colour and interest including walnut, cherry, apple, gooseberry and raspberry. There is a good-sized terrace with box borders and a path leads down the garden where there is a large studio with power. To the front of the house is a parking area.


The small village of Lower Hardres and its neighbour Street End lie in a peaceful rural position on the edge of the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Local amenities include a thriving farm shop, a pub, modern village hall and a parish church.

The cathedral city of Canterbury is only 4 miles away and offers a diverse array of cultural, leisure and shopping facilities. In particular, there is a good range of educational facilities, in both the independent and state sectors, including the King’s School, St Edmund's School and the Simon Langton grammar schools.

The area has excellent road and rail communications, with the M20 (Junction 11) to the south and the A2 at either Canterbury or Bridge connecting to the M2 at Brenley Corner. The High Speed train service connects Canterbury West to London St Pancras in under an hour and Ashford International to London St Pancras from around 36 minutes. Links to the Continent are provided by The Port of Dover and The Channel Tunnel at Folkestone.


From Canterbury: Leave on the Old Dover Road and turn right onto Nackington Road/B2068. Continue to follow the B2068 for 2.2 miles, then turn left onto Hardres Court Road. After 0.7 miles, turn right onto Catts Wood Road. The property will be found a short distance along on the the left hand side.
