Harbour Cottage is one of a row of whitewashed mews cottages within a picturesque conservation area in the only Royal Harbour town in Britain. It originally belonged to a local fisherman and his family around 1840.
The cottage is maintained to a four star standard, with Freeview TV in the lounge and bedrooms, yet retains many period features including exposed brickwork, original floorboards, and for the romantic at heart a real working log fire for cosy evenings in! The cottage also has a fully equipped kitchen to accommodate all your self catering needs.
Situated in a peaceful backwater and yet less than 150 yards from the pretty Royal Harbour and seafront and only moments from a selection of Restaurants and Cafes, Harbour Cottage is perfectly located for your stay in East Kent. Guests further benefit from an allocated off-street parking space.
