Bow Cottage lies in the ancient town of Fordwich, known as the smallest town in Great Britain and is a comfortable terraced holiday cottage which has been renovated to a very good standard, retaining stone clad walls. The front-facing living room boasts a feature bow window and woodburner, and the galley-style kitchen, which has tiled floors, leads into the dining room with patio doors opening on to a patio. This is a great location for walks directly from Fordwich and the outlying area, for exploring, and for sampling the local ales in one of the two local pubs. Explore the historic city of Canterbury with its magnificent cathedral, learn about Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales or take a boat trip on the River Stour. Cycle the Crab and Winkle Way, visit the coast at Herne Bay or spot a seal and sample the oysters at Whitstable, 12 miles. Another enjoyable experience is to go back in time and explore the castles of Dover, Deal and Walmer. Good train connections to London. Shop ¼ mile, pubs/restaurants 100 yards.

    Our second time at this lovely cottage this year! The perfect place as a base for walking with your dog. Go to the top of the lane next to the cottage for loads of walks in the woods and around the lakes. Great pub food at the local pub and Lois, the owner, is a sweetheart!

    Nice stay, perfect location to visit Canterbury and East Kent, a lot of attractions within one hour driving.

    Excellent week. Even my 16 year old son said "I would go there again. " High praise I guarantee you! The beds were comfy the village quiet, the neighbours friendly and I cant think of a better place for a relaxing week, but within reach of lots of exciting things to do!

    A lovely cottage located in the smallest town in England, more like a village, close to two pubs that do good food. Highly recommend the George and Dragon which is reasonably priced for the excellent food it provides. It’s also very dog friendly. The nearest shop is a small Co-Op a 10 minute walk away in the adjacent village of Sturry. The big surprise for us was the amount of walks close by for us and our dog, especially from the adjacent School Lane, across fields and Woods and around the lakes to the beautiful village of Westbere where there is another excellent pub to eat in called the Old Yew Tree. There is even a footpath close by which goes into Canterbury, 2 miles away. The cottage itself has everything you need and we appreciated the welcome pack of milk, wine and dog treats. The only disappointment was that the only grassed area in the garden is fenced off to stop dogs using it, which doesn’t yet appear in the online cottage photos. A grassed area was one of the reasons we chose it but otherwise it is faultless and we certainly will be returning soon, hopefully later this year. There is also now a dedicated parking bay in School Lane which was a very pleasant addition as parking in the street is almost impossible. I must also mention that the owner is very friendly and lives close by if needed. Lesley, Graham and Declan??.
