Descripción

Providence Cottage is a cosy, 16th Century woodsman's cottage. Full of beams, uneven floorboards, steep stairs and an inglenook fireplace (with woodburner) large enough to stand in, it is a story-book country retreat!

Built in 1506, Providence Cottage is a retreat from the modern world, in every sense. With a huge log burning stove, it is the perfect place for two people to unplug, unwind and relax.

Ideal for two, the cottage comprises a large living and dining room with a huge inglenook fireplace (complete with woodburner), kitchen, double bedroom, bathroom and powder room. Dinner in the snug with the fire roaring is what the cottage was made for, but there is also a garden for warmer days.

If you you do choose to venture out, The George in Cranbrook provides excellent food, and is less than a 15 minute walk away (don’t forget a torch!) and there are some excellent walks in the woods across the road. By car, the renowned Sissinghurst Gardens are just five minutes away.

Once owned by John Calcott Horsley, who designed the first ever Christmas card (look up the Cranbrook Colony for more information) it is the story book country retreat!

We will always endeavour to greet you when you arrive (and light the woodburner, if it's chilly!).

We are happy to interact with guests if required, and can be contacted in an emergency.

With a population of 6000, Cranbrook is small, but perfectly formed; a peaceful town, known for its white weatherboard houses, working windmill and magnificent church. It is a fifteen minute walk from the house (accessed down a footpath next to Woodpeckers Nursery).

The narrow medieval streets are lined with pretty old houses, every one different from its neighbour. There is a wide range of excellent independent shops (including a bakery, a butchers and a grocers as well as antiques and gift shops), an excellent town museum, St. Dunstan’s Church and the wonderful Union Mill, the tallest and finest working smock mill in England.

The George provides excellent food and local ales (don’t forget to bring a torch if you are walking back afterwards!) and there are many tea and coffee shops dotted around the town.

Less than three miles away are the world-famous Sissinghurst Gardens, created by Vita Sackville-West and one of the most visited gardens in England.

Tenterden is six miles away, a former Cinque Port and with a beautiful, wide, tree lined High Street and a working steam railway, it enjoys a mix of independent and High Street shops. The Woolpack, Nutmeg Deli and Chapel Down are particularly recommended.

There is plenty of easy parking on the road, just a few metres from the cottage. We recommend that you have a car to make the most of all the local attractions, but can arrange taxis to and from the local station (Staplehurst- one hour from London) if you choose to explore Cranbrook and the walks from the cottage, only.

There is a stunning bath, but no shower. There is a woodburner in the living room, plenty of blankets and hot water bottles, but no central heating. There is no television or stereo (although there is a record player and wifi). This is a 16th Century Tudor, Grade II listed building and we have deliberately endeavoured to respect this, with simple furnishings. The kitchen is equipped with the basics, an electric oven and fridge, a kettle and a toaster but there is no dishwasher or microwave.
The house will come supplied with a basket full of logs. If you require more than this during your stay, there is a petrol station less than a mile away that sells them.
Cranbrook is only a 15 minute walk or a two minute drive away, where there is a well stocked Co-op. For a more local experience, the Farm Shop at Hartley (a five minute drive) is well recommended.
Because the house is 500 years old, there is no disabled access; the stairs are fairly steep and doors to both the bedroom and bathroom are low. The house is timber-framed and this means that floors slope, and some eaves are low (although not downstairs). Please do ask if you require further clarification.


Normas de la casa

Absolutely no smoking please.
Please keep the door to the woodburner closed. You can use the riddle to regulate the temperature, if necessary (and without leaving the door open).
The house will come supplied with the essentials (toilet paper, olive oil, butter and bread etc.) which are there for you to use.

What a wonderful and unique place to stay... Steeped in so much history and the perfect hideaway if you're keen to get away from it all... So much character and charm. And it even snowed whilst we were there which made it even more special... Don't be put off by the lack of central heating, the log burner made so much heat and there are electric heaters throughout too. The wonky floors made it all the more interesting, as did the small door way into the bedroom and other secret little nooks and crannies : ) An absolute delight and we would definitely go back...

Ellen's cottage was the perfect escape from London. Just chilling out in front of the Roaring fire with some good wine and music in the background. Ellen was always very prompt with help and advice. Highly recommend this place for winding down.

We had a wonderful stay at Ellen's magical cottage, which is beautifully appointed and full of character and charm. Though sadly because of our timings we didn't get to meet Ellen personally, she was brilliant and clear on communications and provided all the help and advice we needed for our trip. We especially loved drinking by the cosy fire, and walking to nearby Sissinghurst Castle. Thanks so much for having us!

This is a wonderful retreat from the hustle of modern life. Spent a week here writing without any distractions but plenty to do out and about when a break was needed. Ellen couldn't have done more to make my stay any more comfortable.

Het huis is erg smaakvol ingericht tot in de kleinste details! De ijskast was gevuld met lokale producten ! Wat een warm welkomstgevoel geeft! Maar aangezien het een oude cottage is met hele lage deurtjes en veel balken ( mijn man heeft 4x zijn hoofd gestoten ) en een oude trap, denk ik dat het niet zo geschikt is voor oudere mensen!

Respuesta de Ellen:
Thanks for your review Ellen. Hopefully the fact that the house is 500 years old is mentioned enough in the description of the listing ("Because the house is 500 years old, there is no disabled access; the stairs are fairly steep and doors to both the bedroom and bathroom are low. The house is timber-framed and this means that floors slope, and some eaves are low (although not downstairs). Please do ask if you require further clarification") but thanks for your comments. A description of how to reach the cottage is also sent to all our guests, so I'm sorry if this wasn't clear enough for you. You are our first guests to have difficulty finding it, but I will monitor it! Ellen

Ellen & Darren's house is quite unique and had me thinking all the time about how people in ages gone past must have lived their everyday working lives - transporting! great coffee of course with the grinder instantly providing the shot and the record player is a joy! Nice touch to have fresh bay leaves hanging throughout the house and thanks for the local craft beers - delicious!

A lovely place for a break in a really quaint house not far from amenities and good places to visit. Would recommend this highly. Very good communications and extremely helpful.

Married and with three small children, I live in Kent (but commute to London for work- I'm an Archivist). We fell in love with Austin, Texas during a holiday earlier this year- craft beer, coffee, BBQ and cowboy boots!- but Kent is our home.
