DESCRIPTION An extremely romantic, characterful, country cottage located in an idyllic rural location on the outskirts of the village. The detached white weather-boarded Grade II Listed cottage boasts countryside views to the front and rear. With solid oak wooden flooring downstairs, a fairly new kitchen with contemporary woodburning stove and large sitting room with open fire, the cottage is picture-perfect.

There is a local shop and a public house in Frittenden and a wider range of shopping and leisure facilities are available in the nearby town of Cranbrook.
