About Monique Bonney

We have lived in Rodmersham for many years and know the area well. We enjoy walking up on the North Kent Downs and cycling along the No.1 cycle route and round the local villages. We care about the local environment and community and encourage our guests to explore the local area. We use flowers from our garden to decorate the cottages and provide seasonal home grown fruit and vegetables when available. We bake our own bread. We have sought to create cosy and comfortable self catering cottages that support local businesses and have a low impact on the surrounding environment. We have children and know what is required when travelling with them. We love the fact that you can drive to the coast in 25 minutes or stay put and soak up the country air. The best of both worlds.

Monique Bonney purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Monique Bonney chose Sittingbourne

We love the position of these cottages, overlooking the village green, adjacent to the pub and a few doors from the village shop/cafe. Rural life without being too remote, pop into the village cafe for coffee or into the village pub for a drink and dinner. Opposite the cottages is a footpath that takes you into beautiful fruit orchards. When we bought these cottages they were in desperate need of modernising and had been knocked into 1 dwelling. We completely renovated them including some major structural work, insulated them, replumbed and rewired them. Today they have all the modern facilities you would expect with a dose of 1860's charm!

What makes this cottage unique

We hire out bicycles to explore the area. Both the No.1 cycle route and the North Kent Downs are about 1 mile from the cottages. The cottages are a short drive (5/10 mins) from Sittingbourne, 15 mins from the historic town of Faversham and 25 mins from the beautiful cathedral city of Canterbury. You can look out of window at rural village life but in a short drive/cycle be town. There are plenty of good village pubs to explore, Leeds Castle is a short drive (15/20 mins). If you fancy curling up on the sofa you can surf the internet using our high speed broadband Wifi, watch a DVD or read one of our local interest books. For something really different you could take a Thames Barge sailing trip. We can provide stair gates, highchairs and a cot on request.

Christmas Break

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I (plus dog) enjoyed a wonderful few days in Candy Cottage. We had an horrendous journey down but the wonderful welcome pack of goodies made us feel at home straight away.

The cottage was small but well equipped and spotlessly clean - there was everything we needed to ensure we had a magical Christmas. I was able to cook two Christmas dinners for the family without difficulty and the high hair and cot came in very useful for my granddaughter. The stair gate was also appreciated.

The village was very pretty with the green on the doorstep and a choice of walks from the doorstep.

The cottage fitted the description perfectly and the local information pack was very detailed for those with more time to explore. The staircase was a little narrow and may cause those with mobility difficulties some problems.

I would definitely recommend the property to friends and family.
