A charming Grade II listed, four-bedroom Georgian property, close to historic Chilham Square.

Thydon Cottage is a handsome Georgian village property with a trio of notable reception rooms and a wealth of character features, including tall, beamed ceilings, inglenook fireplaces and sash windows.

Set in the heart of popular Chilham, quintessential village living is on the doorstep with cosy pubs, a traditional tearoom and historic village square all within a short distance. Chilham train station is also close by, with HS1 services to London St Pancras in under an hour. The relatively large garden is partially walled, providing high levels of privacy.

The accommodation comprises three good-sized reception rooms. The formal dining room has a fitted store cupboard below a turned stairway to the first floor; the adjacent dual-aspect drawing room has lovely garden views. The rooms are divided by striking inglenook fireplace with wood-burning stove and open fire. The double-aspect sitting room provides an additional flexible area for entertaining and relaxing.

The space flows naturally through into the vaulted kitchen, a bright and airy space featuring a wide array of attractive Shaker-style wall and base cabinetry with work surfaces over; there is a wood-topped island/breakfast bar and a variety of integrated appliances. Part-glazed double doors open to the side terrace. There is a useful utility room and a shower room.

Accessed from the first floor landing are four bright bedrooms, enjoying a number of fine period features. One of the bedrooms is currently being utilised as a study. The well-appointed family bathroom has a separate bathtub and walk-in shower.


Thydon Cottage sits in a highly desirable setting surrounded by charming historic buildings, with on-street parking available.

The generous partially walled garden enjoys a warm southerly aspect. There is a paved terrace, ideal for al fresco dining, alongside vibrant wisteria, followed by large divided lush lawns with various herbaceous plants, shrubs and trees. There is a summer house, raised planter and a timber garden shed.


Located in historic Chilham, amidst the stunning countryside of the Kent Downs AONB, Thydon Cottage is within a conservation area close to the medieval square. The village, filled with beautiful Tudor buildings and a Norman castle, provides an array of shops and amenities. Canterbury - with its excellent shopping centre, cultural interests, and well-regarded schools - is also close by.

Ashford International offers frequent services to London St Pancras from 36 minutes, and Chilham station offers services between Ashford and Canterbury. The M2 (J7) and M20 (J9) provide fast access to the motorway network, Gatwick and Heathrow airports, with the Channel Tunnel terminal and Port of Dover offering services to the Continent.


From Canterbury: Leave on the A28 towards Ashford then join the A252 and follow signs into the village. Pass the Woolpack Inn on the left into The Street. The property will be found on the left after a short distance.
