The property Pilgrims has been in the same family for 40 years and presents an increasingly rare find for those seeking a period country house of immense character and charm, with considerable opportunity to update/refurbish.

Enjoying a beautiful setting, the house offers flexible accommodation set out over three floors and its elevated position ensures that many of the rooms enjoy the wonderful views over open countryside.

Entered via a spacious reception hall featuring a fireplace and wood-block flooring, the ground floor accommodation is arranged to provide generously proportioned rooms including an elegant sitting room, also with a fireplace.

Double doors open out to the adjoining garden room that takes full advantage of the pleasing outlook over the gardens and views beyond. Additional reception rooms include a family room with a bay window, a good size dining room and a breakfast room, conveniently situated close to the kitchen.

The ground floor further comprises a utility room and a cloakroom.

The first floor is arranged to provide five bedrooms, one with direct access to a southfacing balcony, two bathrooms and a separate wc. There is an additional bedroom on the upper floor, along with a further bathroom and good eaves storage space.

Outside Pilgrims is approached via double wroughtiron gates set between brick pillars. The gardens are undoubtedly a wonderful feature of the property being secluded and stocked with a wide variety of flowering plants, shrubs and trees to create year-round interest. Set well back within its grounds, the house enjoys a supreme outlook over the south-facing lawned gardens to the far-reaching view beyond. A spur leading off the driveway provides access to the garage.

This property has 1.7 acres of land.


The property enjoys a pleasant rural location with fabulous views, in An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty at the foot of the North Downs. The villages of Kemsing and Otford provide local amenities including village shops, primary schools and a number of pubs.


Exit the M25 at Junction 5 and take the A21 turn off and proceed onto the A25, heading East through the traffic lights. After passing through Seal, continue up the hill and take the second turning on the left (signposted Heaverham and Kemsing). Continue through Heaverham and just after Crowdleham House, turn right into Cotmans Ash Lane. At the crossroads with Pilgrims Way, proceed straight across and Pilgrims will be found a short distance along on the right hand side.
