If the date 1517 incised into one of its beams is as authentic as it appears to be and was put there during its construction by a medieval 'chippie', Tudor Cottage was built eight years into the reign of Henry VIII. By then, Sandwich's days as a major port were over and the town was already captured in the time-warp which has resulted in it remaining the most complete medieval town in Britain.
Tudor Cottage is one of its gems, little changed over the (almost) six centuries since it was built in the traditional vernacular style of Tudor Kent. In its place on the town's High Street, it is now one of the most interesting architectural milestones in a uniquely representative parade of buildings from across those centuries. What later additions were made to the building, were carried out with sympathy and good taste and Tudor Cottage is rolling in period charm and character.
On the ground floor, a generous, double aspect reception/dining room with a magnificent central Bressumer beam adjoins a well-appointed kitchen with a door to a courtyard which has the complete privacy to make it ideal for alfresco dining - or a hot tub. To the rear is a double aspect sitting room overlooking the courtyard garden - also accessible by a glazed stable-door - which features a raised stone bed planted with semi-tropical plants including a mature palm, yucca and oleander.
On the first floor there are two double bedrooms, a generous single bedroom and a family bathroom.
Tudor Cottage is a very versatile property - ideal for use as a permanent home, a 'lock-up-and-leave' weekend retreat or buy-to-let (in 2015 it was given a Gold Award by Visit England, and the only cottage in Sandwich to be selected by Alastair Sawday).
Sandwich has all the facilities and amenities of a market town and more. It is famous for its championship links golf courses, Royal St Georges, which hosts the British Open, Princes and the Royal Cinque Ports. There are six other 18-hole courses and two pay and play courses within 10 miles of the town centre.
It is just over two hours from London by High Speed Train and close enough to Calais to make it easily feasible to do your weekly shop in France.
The courtyard garden is very private and features a raised stone bed with a variety of mediterranean plants and shrubs including a mature palm, yucca and oleanders.
