“I bought this cottage in the mid-1990s and it has been a delight but I now spend much of my time abroad, so feel it is time to pass the baton on to new owners. I have enjoyed extending the property over the years and some of the time it has been used as a very successful holiday let including many newlyweds spending at least the first night of their honeymoon here after a reception at the ‘new’ Dog and Duck pub across the road, that you can also walk to under the bridge. At one stage I had my own boat moored beside the cottage but now I rent out the moorings which bring in some £6000 per annum.
The location is wonderful, The Dog and Duck Inn just 100m away offers Traditional Village Games during the summer including ‘Bat and Trap, and the cottage is not far to the village of Stourmouth if you want to go to the Rising Sun, for a change, for a drink or a meal, there are several riverside paths that lead you there and to local Wildlife Reserves.
There is a village shop in Preston or the Minster Service Station with its very useful co-op. At the same time the historic city of Canterbury with its high street stores, individual shops, bars and restaurants is only about 10 miles while the village of Ash and the medieval Cinque port town of Sandwich is even less. The Thanet Way is easily accessible for London, the high speed train at Minster and the Thanet towns and beaches. There are also excellent state and private primary and secondary schools within the vicinity including St Faiths at Ash."
