A pretty five bedroom detached period cottage set in 3.42 acres of gardens and paddock, occupying a delightfully private location in the historic village of Pluckley.

The White Cottage is believed to be over 400 years old and offers sizeable, flexible accommodation arranged over two floors comprising an entrance porch, sitting room, snug, kitchen/dining room, ground floor shower room, utility/boiler room, five bedrooms, family bathroom and additional cloakroom w.c.

The property is approached via a long gravel driveway with ample off road parking and detached double garage. Lawned gardens surround the property with an extensive paved patio area to the rear, ideally placed for enjoying alfresco dining into the evening.

A field gate leads from the rear garden to a grassland field of just over 2½ acres lying to the north of the property offering direct access on to the local equestrian toll ride (TROT).

The property is situated at the end of a quiet country lane to the south of the village centre of Pluckley, an historic rural village situated in a most beautiful part of the Kent countryside famous for its orchards and farmland and, in particular, being the setting chosen for the television series, “The Darling Buds of May". The property is located within convenient walking distance to Pluckley's main line railway station (½ mile) which provides fast access to London Bridge, Canon Street and Ashford International station with its High Speed 37 minute Javelin service to London St Pancras.

The village enjoys three historic pubs, Church, Post Office & General Stores, butcher's shop and a well respected primary school. The area is rich in natural beauty and an abundance of public footpaths and horse riding routes, providing an amazing playground for the outdoor enthusiast.

Transport links are well served with the previously mentioned railway station along with excellent road networks leading to the A20 and M20 at junction 9, some 6 miles distant, providing access to London and the Kent coast.
