A unique & stunning country cottage steeped in history with links to the Plantagenet Kings of England! Our cottage is tucked away, surrounded by mature gardens that overlook the Eastwell Manor Country Estate. Plantagenet Cottage is newly refurbished, spacious, very private & relaxing with a certain English charm & character. The heated pool is great in Summer [closed in Winter] and the beautiful Kent countryside, numerous things to do nearby, or the cozy log fire makes this a perfect getaway.
Bedroom 1 & 2 can be either 1 x SuperKing OR 2 x Singles [not both].
Bedroom 2 has a pull-out mattress to accommodate a 7th person on request [additional fee]
Plantagenet Cottage dates back to the 16th Century and is believed to be built by the 'illegitimate' son of King Richard the 3rd [the last Plantagenet King of England and the one they found under the car park in Leicester recently]. We call one of the bedrooms "Richard's Room" which has a double [Kingsize] bed in it. There are some books and an old transcript describing the History of the cottage. The tomb of the illegitimate heir Richard Plantagenet still lies in the ruins of nearby St Mary's church of Eastwell.

3 Nächte Mindestaufenthalt vom 22. Dezember 2017 - 29. Dezember 2017.
We are a small family living in North London with our two young daughters. We like cooking and eating delicious food, sunshine, music, gardening, and being outdoors. It's great doing those things at our cottage when guests are not enjoying doing it there themselves !
