The Details...

A holiday cottage with a difference! Arcadia is a fascinating conversion of a pair of High Victorian Gothic chapels designed by Thomas Talbot Bury, a noted pupil of Pugin, built around 1870. The two main chapels are linked by a cloistered reception hall where the main entrance, and door to the garden are located. The master bedroom, built on a mezzanine floor, features stained glass windows and a free standing roll top bath.

The large open plan sitting/dining room is comprised of one of the twin chapels in its entirety, and has full length stained glass windows and a high vaulted ceiling as well as the original chapel organ. With a 50 inch flat screen television, large leather sofas and a long oak dining table, this room lends itself to being an excellent quirky entertaining space.

Outside, the garden features a pond with fountain, gravel walkways and lawned area with loungers, table and chairs. Arcadia is to be found within Charlton cemetery, nestling beneath the impressive Dover Castle.

The port of Dover is just a short drive, a great opportunity to take a day trip to France. The historical sites of Dover Castle and the War Time Tunnels are both within easy reach, and Samphire Hoe Nature Reserve is only a few miles away.
