Arcadia - a house that sleeps 6 guests in 2 bedrooms

Bedrooms 2
Property type house


About the property

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 and unusual place to stay.

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.

Außergewöhnliches Ferienhaus

  • 4 of 5

Es war wirklich ein Erlebnis in diesem einzigartigen Ferienhaus Urlaub machen zu dürfen. Das Haus ist etwas abgelegen, dennoch kann man alle wichtig Ort in Dover auch zu Fuß erreichen. In Dover sollte man sich auf jedem Fall das Schloss ansehen, und mit der Bahn kommt man auch schnell und einfach nach London. (Wichtig, vorher am Bahnhof über die Preise informieren, ab 09:00 Uhr ist es wesentlich günstiger nach London zu kommen) Die Innenausstattung ist sehr gut, aber es ist nun mal ein altes Gebäude und dafür ist die Ausstattung mehr als gut. Man sollte aber nie vergessen, das man sich das Ferienhaus direkt auf einen Friedhof befindet. Kann also auch mal etwas gruselig werden wenn man erst tief in der Nacht in das Haus zurückkehrt. Alles in allem kann ich diesen Feriendomizil mit gutem Gewissen weiter empfehlen und kann sagen ich war nicht zum letzten mal in England.

fantastische locatie en goed verzorgd ( opgemaakte bedden enhanddoeken aanwezig)

  • 4 of 5

Wij hebben genoten van het bijzondere onderkomen op een bijzondere locatie. Huis en inrichting was prima voor elkaar en de bedden lagen heerlijk. Wel moet je even ingesteld zijn op de afgezonderde ligging. Wij vonden dit geen enkel probleem hoewel ik mij 's avonds wel es wat kwetsbaar voelde als het donker werd. Al met al een aanrader!

Ganz besondere Unterkunft!

  • 4 of 5

Die Unterkunft ist toll und etwas ganz besonderes.

Man darf natürlich kein Problem damit haben, von Gräbern umgeben zu sein und ohne sonstige Nachbarschaft zu sein- ausser Gräbern und recht vielen Spinnen!

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.
