General overview

Primrose cottage is one of four cottages in what was once known as Primrose Alley. The first three cottages have now been converted into one dwelling where we live and we offer Primrose Cottage as holiday accommodation for individuals and families looking to stay in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in this unique corner of The Garden of England. The cottage is believed to be built in the 15th Century and has a wealth of original and interesting features such as exposed beams, inglenook fire place and a small twisting staircase (with handrail).

We have lived in New York and rented houses across America and Europe for vacations so we know what we would like to find in a property and have reflected this in our holiday rentals. We are now country living in Bridge, near Canterbury, Kent, with 3 children and working in London. Primrose Cottage is in Bridge, Kent and exclusively a holiday rental and we live in the house next door. It is in a vibrant village with 3 pubs, one of which is Michelin starred for food and a Pig Restaurant. The city of Canterbury is 5 minutes away. There are good transport links and plenty of historic sites and beaches nearby. Our London flat is set up as a short term rental on the first floor in a Victorian building in the lovely neighbourhood of Fulham. with easy access to Chelsea, central London and Parsons Green. As neither properties are our main homes we can be flexible on dates. We will however need to travel in UK school holidays.
