A delightful and unique country cottage with historical links to the Plantagenet Kings of England! It's tucked away, surrounded by mature gardens that overlook the Eastwell Manor Country Estate. Plantagenet Cottage is newly refurbished, spacious, full of character, very private and relaxing . Our heated pool is great in Summer [closed in Winter]. Enjoy the beautiful Kent countryside, great pubs, a nearby Spa, beaches, Canterbury and lots more - or simply just chill out at the cottage !

The space
We take our Covid cleaning seriously and follow sanitising guidelines. We also ask that guests agree to inform us if they have Covid. We are flexible with changing dates and cancellations if new restrictions mean you're unable to stay.

Plantagenet Cottage dates back to the 16th Century and local legend says it was built by the 'illegitimate' son of King Richard the 3rd [the last Plantagenet King of England; he's the one they found under the car park in Leicester more recently]. We call one of our bedrooms "Richard's Room". There are several books and an old transcript describing the fascinating history of the cottage - it's a great story ! The tomb of our Richard Plantagenet [the last Plantagenet heir to the throne of England] still lies in the ruins of nearby St Mary's church of Eastwell which makes for a nice walk.

Where you’ll be

Kent, United Kingdom

The cottage is tucked away in a secluded spot, so offers some privacy whilst still within easy reach of excellent local amenities. We are nestled on the edge of a small village called Boughton Aluph which surrounds a central cricket green and traditional Kentish pub which is a short stroll away. Our property overlooks the picturesque sheep filled grounds of the Eastwell Manor Estate & Hotel which can be seen in the distance [which itself offers fine dining, a spa, golf course, indoor pool and a huge lake]. Nearby is the practical thriving town of Ashford, and the wonderful historic city of Canterbury, the nature filled South Downs and many traditional Kentish pubs. There's an abundance of cycling trails and walks - nearby Kingswood being a favourite. The seaside towns of Whitstable, Rye, Herne Bay and the sandy beaches at Camber are all near enough for day trips, as is central London.

We've been hosting guests at our cottage on AirBnB for several years now and it continues to be a real passion project. We do our best to make it nice for all our guests & are proud SuperHosts. We like cooking and eating delicious food, being in the sunshine, listening to music, gardening, and adventuring outdoors. It's great doing those things at our cottage when guests are not doing it there themselves !
