Hill Top Cottages, Linton

A charming two bedroom extended period cottage in a sought after location with lots of welcome hidden surprises. The property has extended to the rear allowing for a spacious kitchen/dining area yet in spite of the alterations it still manages to retain its ‘olde worlde’ charm. The lounge to the front has a warm feel to it on even the coldest of days thanks to the open fireplace. The wooden flooring and exposed wooden doors highlight the age of the property.

There’s a handy cellar tucked away underneath with plenty of space for all your storage needs.

An unusual feature for properties of this era is the upstairs bathroom, a convenience that will be appreciated all the more on cold winter nights.

The cottage is set back a long way from the road and forms a part of a small row of cladded cottages. There is room here to park approximately 3 cars. To the rear is a long garden stretching approximately 100ft backing onto fields. The garden mirrors the country cottage feel of the property, a long strip broken up by a wonderful array of plants and shrubs. Perhaps a fitting place to glance back on the row of historic Period Homes that would have once been occupied by the workers of the land.

Linton is a small, possibly the smallest village in Kent, which straggles along the A229 on the south facing hill between Staplehurst and Maidstone. The village provided labour to the quarry which is to the found in the nearby Boughton Monchelsea, but has grown up from the 1700’s to provide living quarters to the workers from Linton Place.

The area is useful being sandwiched between Maidstone town centre and the Weald of Kent, and offers a fantastic example of rural life in the heart of the garden of England balanced with the convenience offered by the county town.

Walk only a short way round the corner into Coxheath and you will find a very useful array of shops, doctors and the local parish church, while a shorter walk still in the opposite direction will find you at the local pub, The Bull at Linton. A charming 17th Century Inn, famous for its stunning views from the terrace and oozing the ambiance of years gone by.

There are too many country walks and foot paths to list but any active explorers will not struggle to find peace here at Linton.
