Waltham is located only a few minutes drive from the beautiful and historic city of Canterbury, yet is surrounded by stunning unspoilt peaceful countryside, perfect for those who enjoy the outdoors, from walking on the Kent Downs to mountain biking in nearby Denge Woods and horse riding at the village stables. The excellent country pub, The Tiger at Stowting is a 15 minute drive away, and well worth it!

With Canterbury so close to hand it is worth spending some time visiting the world famous Cathedral and exploring this beautiful vibrant city. With great shopping, superb independent cafes and restaurants and museums such as The Roman Pavement and the Beaney House of Art and Knowledge, you may need more than one visit. Venture a little further afield to the coast and the traditional seaside towns of Hythe and Sandgate, offer independent shops, antique shops, a miniature steam railway and a lovely esplanade for breathing in the salty sea air.
Towels and linen provided
Central heating and wood burning stove

‘We had a wonderful week in the Old Schoolroom. Quietly located, with a cozy cottage garden. From the house you can make beautiful walks. Nice pubs nearby. Centrally located for Kent trips. The owners were on vacation but very friendly contact by mail. We felt welcome. Even the first breakfast was provided with delicious local products. Recommended. MP’

‘The Old Schooolroom is a comfortable, cosy place to stay. Full of character and great memorabilia, it is fun to go through the old books and annuals on the shelves. Well equipped, nicely decorated and warm, you feel at home very quickly. The owners live next door and are friendly, welcoming and very helpful if you need assistance. Highly recommended.’

‘We stayed in the Old School Room in May 2022 and found it to be well equipped and extremely comfortable. Waltham is a very small village in a quiet country location so a car is absolutely necessary then its pretty easy to get to most parts of Kent within 1 hours travelling. Jane and Hugh are caring hosts who made sure we had all we needed during our stay. Jane has added school related items to the decor which harks back to when it actually was a school room - a nice touch we thought. The mobile signal in Waltham (as in a lot of rural Kent) is poor to non existent but the provided WiFi is good. There's a small private garden for guests with table, chairs and a BBQ (although we never used it). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to go back one day. David & Pauline Rust’
