Kent's cutest cottage for sale with Hobbs Parker looks like Sylvanian Families Meadowcroft

With its cute dolls house looks, this chocolate box cottage is waiting for a new owner.

Thatched Dormer Cottage, in the pretty North Downs village of Petham, near Canterbury, comes with characterful beamed ceilings, cosy fireplaces and every home makers dream – a pillar-box red Aga.

Polished floorboards are original too, at this 400-year-old home. There’s a quirky lop-sided staircase and rustic old latch doors.

In summer, the pretty gardens are a riot of lavender and roses.

In fact, with its thatched roof and dormer window, it bears more than a passing resemblance to Meadowcroft Cottage, the much-loved home from the child's Sylvanian Families range of toys.

The Grade II-listed cottage, at The Street, Petham, near Canterbury, is new to the market at £435,000.

It is expected to attract plenty of interest either as a potential holiday home, Airbnb property, or as a permanent home.

It has three bedrooms; two of them on the ground floor and one tucked in the attic, complete with the dormer window and sloping ceilings.

Alex Davies, of estate agent Hobbs Parker says: This is an utterly enchanting Grade II listed cottage, with views over its delightful garden and a valley beyond.

“The interior has a welcoming feel and a pleasant atmosphere, contrasting the character of the older house with an airy later extension.

“Petham is one of the prettiest villages on the North Downs. The surrounding countryside offers picturesque and peaceful walks and rides.

"There are fine downland views and a rich variety of wildlife. Canterbury is close by too.

“We can see this one either selling as a permanent home, or as a holiday cottage.”

Dormer Cottage has a garage and off-road parking.

Meadowcroft Cottage, home to mice Jack and Maisie Meadows, was launched by Sylvanian Families in 1995.
