“I moved here some 22 years ago as I fell in love with the cottage as soon as I saw it. During the time I have lived here I have enjoyed updating and extending it but still making sure everything is in keeping with the original. However I feel that it is now time to move nearer to my children and I hope someone else will be able to enjoy it as much as I have. I love everything about this character home but it is important to remember that you don't want to be too tall or you will have to duck your head on a continuing basis!
Although it is a very quiet and peaceful rural environment it is also extremely convenient as we are only about five minutes drive from the centre of Canterbury and a minute's walk from the station at Sturry for the high speed train to London. In fact there are many neighbours who commute to London on a daily basis and find it very easy.
Fordwich is famous for being the smallest town in England with its own town hall. It is full of attractive and historic buildings and the river Stour running through the centre. It includes two excellent olde worlde pubs – the Fordwich Arms and the George and Dragon - that you can easily walk to if you want a drink and a meal and don't want to drive. Also within easy walking distance in the adjacent village of Sturry is the renowned Kathton House fine dining restaurant, a pharmacy, post office, hairdresser and Co op convenience store as well as the famous Kings Junior school and the Sturry primary school, graded Outstanding by Ofsted. There is the main road and a bus stop within a minute's walk that can take you into Canterbury or as far as the Thanet towns.
For anyone who enjoys outdoor pursuits there are wonderful places to go for walks with the dog or fishing on the river while the nearby Westbere Lakes offers sailing opportunities as well as fishing while clay pigeon shooting takes place at the Greenfields Shooting grounds in Sturry”.
