What the owner says

“We fell in love with the tranquil and secluded surroundings as well as the gorgeous house itself. As builders we were delighted to have the opportunity to renovate such a special house and also upgrade the holiday lets which produce an excellent income and are always fully occupied. Indeed, we even have a 25 per cent occupancy booked for next year so anyone buying the property would already have an ongoing business should they wish it to continue. At the same time it is very much a home for leisure activities, whether it is having friends round for a meal, a barbecue and a swim or an evening in the well fitted bar enjoying a drink and playing pool. Although we are in a village the location it is also an extremely convenient location because if you need to commute to London you can be at Folkestone West station within a few minutes for the high speed train to St Pancras, while it is simple to get to the Eurotunnel or Dover docks for the Continent and shopping facilities are easily accessible in Folkestone and Dover. There are excellent private and grammar schools in Folkestone, Dover and Canterbury while the primary school in River has been rated Outstanding by Ofsted.”

All of these have en suite showers including the master with its fitted wardrobes and attractive views.
