Situated at 'The Lost Village of Dode', Hillview is one of two semi-detached cottages we offer situated in complete tranquility at the end of a 'no through road' in the depths of the Kent countryside, five miles south of historic Rochester. Designed very much as a small, country 'hideaway' this really is an ideal place if you're looking for a magical, spiritual place to retreat to for complete peace and quiet.

El espacio
Hillview is the neighbouring cottage of Woodside.

Built of green oak with imaginative use of handcrafted wrought iron work, the cottage, was designed to be 'inward' looking to promote solitude and silence. It is timber framed with the ceiling in the sleeping loft being particularly spectacular. Great use has been made of the available living space and all the rooms are well equipped for their size.

What makes this cottage unique is that it lies in a tiny hamlet known locally as Dode which was virtually wiped out by The Black Death in the 14th century. All that remains of the original village is the small, former, Norman church, which was last used as a place of worship in 1367, then deconsecrated. Restored in the Victorian era, it is now a popular venue for civil wedding ceremonies, and frequently available for quiet time and meditation. The site as a whole is steeped in ancient history, details of which can be obtained from the owner, who is an expert on the subject.

Servicios y zonas comunes
One double intimate loft 'sleeping platform' accessed via quirky steps. Ground floor shower room with shower, basin and WC.

Open plan living area with dining space and wood burning effect electric fire. Enclosed paved terraces and access to two acres of beautiful grounds including a small pond and magical stone circle.

A beautiful and intimate living space far away from the madding crowd, ideal for reflection, meditation and peace in a busy world.

Otros aspectos destacables
Please note the cottages are semi-detached so you may have neighbours if the cottage next door is booked.

Please note there is no WIFI or internet signal at Dode so perfect if you are really wanting an escape in the country. Phone signal is also limited however pay phone is available in the cottage.

If bringing dogs there is a £12 additional charge per dog.

Luddesdown, Inglaterra, Reino Unido

The Lost Village of Dode Far lies far away, in a magical place, where time has stood still, in an almost forgotten valley between Luddesdown and Holly Hill, nestled in the North Kent Downs in the South East of England, there stands a beautiful, enchanting & romantic Norman church which is loved and cared for by your hosts Doug & Mary, it is the only remaining trace of 'The Lost Village of Dode'.

This unique, lovingly restored, Norman church, located within an amazing setting is home to our unique wedding venue and two cottage retreats Woodside & Hillview.

The two cottages stand just below and within the grounds of the church and enjoy a really peaceful outlook across fields and up to woodland on Holly Hill. It's a superb location for keen walkers with easy access onto the North Downs/Pilgrims Way, which leads to England's premier cathedral city of Canterbury.

Although well away from busy main roads, Dode is within comfortable driving distance of a number of visitor attractions, such as the majestic Leeds Castle, medieval Igtham Mote, Chartwell, former home of Sir Winston Churchill, and the historic naval dockyard at Chatham. The cathedral city of Rochester with its Norman castle above the River Medway, is an easy drive as are the creeks and inlets of the north Kent coastline where there are a number of RSPB bird sanctuaries. London, via the M20 is an hour's drive.
