This pretty cottage in the centre of Sandwich was built around 1742 and has a wealth of character while exuding charm. There’s a welcoming lounge diner with log burner for those winter months and three good size bedrooms and a pretty courtyard garden.
Sandwich holds a wealth of cultural heritage being one of the Cinque Ports. The town is recognised as one of the best preserved medieval towns in the country and is now in ownership of its own Magna Carta. Sandwich is awash with things to see and do, much of it enjoyed on foot without needing to get back in the car. The ancient courtroom and museum can be located in the Guildhall. It really is a delight with timber-framed houses leaning over narrow streets. There are quaint cafes including an Italian pizzeria with wood fired oven, offering delectable bites breakfast until dinner. Follow the town trail taking in the historic sites, then relax on the quay with its cosy pubs and good eateries. Pop into the No Name Shop to devour a fresh pastry and there are even the remains of a Roman Fort that can be reached by river bus or head out to the estuary to spot seals. The quayside is charming with walking trails on the flat which run along on a relaxing 30 minute walk to the sand and shingle beach of Sandwich Bay or you can even walk through the footpath across Royal St George’s Golf Course, home to the Golf Open Championship to reach the beach!
Inside the town you will also find the White Mill Rural Heritage centre, Salutation Gardens and no less than four historic churches. The bells you can hear quietly chiming from around the town. The narrow streets with timber framed listed buildings carry you back in time. You’ll also find a delicatessen, a grocers and many places to eat and drink. Events are also held frequently in the centre throughout the year. Sandwich is a bit of a secret getaway location to hide away from the busy world and enjoy local living.
