A delightful period home full of charm and character

3-4 Swallows Brook Cottage is a charming property, providing light-filled accommodation with a wealth of beautiful period details, including exposed timber beams and Inglenook fireplaces. Set back on a quiet country lane, the house was originally built in the 17th century as two cottages and later combined to make one larger home. Extended in more recent years, the property offers well balanced and practical family accommodation with a lovely feel to it.

Three reception rooms sit across the front of the house. The generous sitting room has a lovely, deep Inglenook fireplace and honey coloured beams. Adjoining this is the dining room which leads conveniently to the kitchen as well as to a second sitting room/snug where there is further fireplace with a wood burning stove.

The country style, handmade kitchen sits to the back of the house in the later extension, which provides a beautifully light double aspect room. Fitted with wooden units and a Belfast sink, the kitchen has plenty of room for a large table and is a wonderful family space. Adjoining is a generous utility room which has good storage with a walk in pantry and broom cupboard. A lobby leads to the back door and cloakroom.

Upstairs there are five bedrooms, including the generous principal bedroom which has a vaulted ceiling, exposed floorboards and an en suite shower room. The remaining pretty bedrooms are served by a large family bathroom with a separate shower unit and there is a walk in airing cupboard.

This property has 0.54 acres of land.


3-4 Swallows Brook Cottage is set back from the country lane behind a strip of lawn. A driveway leads to the side of the house and to parking adjacent to the carport and outbuilding. There is also a useful studio.

The gardens are laid to lawn and mainly stretch away to the rear of the house. To the side is a terrace and a further area of lawn. Mature hedges the mark the boundaries and the surrounding countryside provides a lovely rural setting.


The property is set in a peaceful rural position with a collection of just a few other properties, to the northeast of the village of Ash and to the west of the town of Sandwich. Ash has several everyday amenities, including a local shop, a village hall, a doctor’s surgery, a village pub, a primary school and the independent St Faith's School. The charming town of Sandwich has further amenities, including a selection of shops and supermarkets, and further schooling, including the Ofsted Outstanding-rated Sir Roger Manwood's School.

The Kent coast is close by, with its long stretches of beach and nature reserves, including Pegwell Bay, which is a perfect place for spotting wildlife including a variety of bird species and seals. Links golf is available at the world-renowned Royal St Georges in Sandwich, as well as the Royal Cinque Ports Golf Club. The area has good access to the Continent.


From Canterbury: Leave on the A257 towards Sandwich and continue for 10 miles, before turning left onto Cooper Street Drove, following the sign for Goss Hall and East Street. Continue for just over a mile, and the property will be on the left-hand side.
