We named this cottage after the song Songbird written by Christine McVee, from Fleetwood Mac, who use to live here. Look out for songbirds on the iron gates around the property.
This cottage is much the same as Bumble Bee in design, comfort and luxury, however the bedroom of this cottage is bigger, with a slightly larger wardrobe, with option of having it as a twin room. Unlike Bumble Bee this cottage does not have a log burner but still has the same contemporary feel. Guests have access to the stunning grounds of The quaives private estate and use of the tennis court. There is underfloor heating throughout with a thermostat for guests to control the temperature to their suiting. There is much on offer in the area with a plenitude of beautiful countryside walks, fabulous pubs, Howlets Wildlife Animal Park, Canterbury city, and seaside towns such as Whitstable, Sandwich, Margate, Deal and more. Take a look on our blog for more information on things to do in the area.
Lounge & Kitchen
In the lounge area there is a velvet couch, sheepskin rug, tv, coffee table, and coasters. The kitchen countertop, sink and backsplash is made of corian and designed to create the illusion of a single flowing solid surface. The cutting board slides over the cooking hobs to give the surface a clean look when not in use. Pendant lights hang over the kitchen area, and the tiles are positioned to catch the eye. There is a kettle, toaster, fridge- freezer and oven, and plenty of cooking utensils, bottle opener, sauce pans & frying pans, plates, bowls and cutlery.
The bedroom has a cupboard with hanging space, a large mirror, reading lamps, and bedside tables. The bed is a king size double with copper headrest, a firm and comfortable mattress, cotton sheets, a sheepskin rug either side of the bed for soft luxury cushioning underfoot when stepping in and out of bed, and just enough space to fit suitcases underneath to tuck them out of the way. We can change this into a twin room.
Beautifully designed with a skylight over the shower so you can see the trees by day and the stars by night, the raindrop shower is a truly divine experience. Options for lighting, and warm underfloor heating to step out on to, create an overall sense of luxury and comfort.
