Marsh View is a wonderful holiday cottage in a quiet location on the Isle of Sheppey. Tucked away at the end of a private lane within walking distance of the award-winning Ferry House Inn, the beautifully converted barn sleeps eight people in four bedrooms, with incredible views of the surrounding countryside. The layout suits families, extended families and friends as the bedrooms are over two levels, with two being ensuite. The cottage has a private terrace, and guests have use of the shared grounds with fenced duck ponds with lots of space for picnics and playing. Guests also have the option of walking to the Ferry House Inn for a meal or relaxing massage in their treatment rooms.
The Isle of Sheppey is a natural haven off the coast of Kent. Measuring a mere four miles wide and nine miles long, it's somewhere you can easily navigate, even if you're only staying for a short break. There are excellent opportunities for walking and cycling, and because the landscape is nice and level, the footpaths and cycling routes are suitable for all ages. Favourite pastimes include walking around the coastal path and enjoying the spectacular views over the English Channel and Thames Estuary, swimming, paddle boarding and surfing at beaches like nearby Leysdown-on-Sea, Sheerness and Minster, or spotting birds and wildlife in The Swale and Elmley Marshes national nature reserves.
Within half an hour's drive are three golf courses, a riding school, an ice skating rink, greyhound racing, and outdoor activities like clay pigeon shooting. Maidstone is 30-minutes from the cottage, while Bluewater shopping centre is only 10-minutes further. Mix your days up with lazy visits to the seaside, non-stop shopping, and sightseeing in the famous city of Canterbury, which is less than an hour's drive.
