DIRECTIONS From Staplehurst, proceed along the Cranbrook Road and take the turning right into Pinnock Lane just beyond the Esso garage. Continue along to the fork; take the left-hand turn and Cantii Cottage will be found a short way up on the right-hand side.  

DESCRIPTION Cantii Cottage dates back to 1853 and is a traditionally-built property with a later extension to one side. The cottage lends itself to further expansion, subject to planning permission. Set in a truly idyllic position, the cottage enjoys delightful gardens which wrap around the cottage, and wonderful views over farmland and orchards. The accommodation is spacious inside and replacement double glazing has been installed and the oil-fired central heating boiler replaced in recent years. The property is situated in a semi-rural location but within easy reach of Staplehurst village centre.

The property is set within the popular Wealden village of Staplehurst with its range of local amenities including bank, post office, supermarket, primary school and mainline station providing commuter services to London Charing Cross, Waterloo and Cannon Street (approximately 55 minutes). The County town of Maidstone is approximately 12 miles away providing a wider range of both shopping and leisure facilities. The property also falls within the Cranbrook School catchment area and there is a good variety of local schools within the vicinity - Bethany School at Goudhurst, Sutton Valence School at Sutton Valence, Dulwich Prep School at Cranbrook, and the High Weald Academy at Cranbrook.
