Rodmersham, Sittingbourne, Kent, England
This charming 4* self catering holiday cottage is situated in the heart of the Kent village of Rodmersham Green, opposite the village pond, the village green and open countryside. The village pub and village shop/cafe are adjacent to the cottage.

The cottage was built in 1860 as a farm workers cottage, later becoming the post office and village shop. Full of traditional features it is the perfect base for exploring Kent throughout the year.

Old Post Cottage has two bedrooms and is beautifully decorated, providing a calm and peaceful ambience, with a cosy sitting room and separate dining room.

We hold a Green Tourism GOLD award for Old Post Cottage. Great walking and cycling on your doorstep. Kent Downs AONB just 1 mile away and the No.1 cycle route is 2.5 miles from the cottage. We hire out bicycles to explore the area.

We really enjoyed our stayed in this well equipped cottage. Home baked goods, fresh eggs & flowers were a wonderful welcome after our long drive that day. The cottage was exactly the way shown in the photos. The village is a great base for exploring the surrounding Kentish country side. We would definitely stay here again.

Management response:

We are delighted you enjoyed your stay in Old Post Cottage. We hope we cash welcome you back. Happy travels. Monique
