Obviously, here at Mulberry Cottages, we love most things about Great Britian-prepared to put up with the, shall we say, changeable weather in return for the eccentricity, the history, the beauty and the people that make up this fair Isle. And there is a little something beginning today at 11.30 which can only be called the most British of events… the 127th annual Wimbledon Tournament!
With Murray gearing up to represent team GB on Tuesday, our thoughts turn to the 3 British hopefuls looking to make their mark on international tennis today. Oliver Golding starts on Court 2, Wild Card Josh Goodall (GB number 4, world number 220) starts on Court 3 and Wild Card Naomi Broady begins her campaign on Court 16. With so much to see and do at Wimbledon, its not suprising that people make the trip from all over the UK and beyond, but with the queues being legendary-some of your may prefer to watch the action from the comfort of a luxurious country cottage or even to brush up on your back hand on your own tennis court… let Mulberry Cottages help with a selection of gorgeous cottages complete with tennis courts to enjoy.
First up we have the gorgeous Glen Hill, our new property in the historic town of Walmer and looking out onto Walmer Castle; which boasts a lawn tennis court as well as 2 acres of mature gardens, a grand dining area perfect for a post match meal and ample space to explore and relax. Glen Hill sleeps 10 and is available from just £30 per person per night.
For a cottage perfect for doubles, why not try Cherry Cottage in Doddington, close to Canterbury and with use of a fully equipped tennis court as well as a swimming pool and set in the heart of gorgeous countryside- Cherry Cottage sleeps 2 + 2 and is available from just £10.50 per person per night.
