About 1 Forstal House

Arriving at the adorable village of Worth, within 1 mile of Sandwich, all else is forgotten! The exposed brick façade of this period semi-detached cottage is home to a lovingly restored cottage, retaining much of its original charming features, including two Inglenook fire places.

Stunning oak floors sweep through an open plan, state of art kitchen and breakfast room, superb for a family gathering. The sun filled garden room is a delightful place to enjoy a summer morning coffee, whilst watching the children play in the garden.

Located in the centre of Worth, a conservation area with a variety of historic homes from thatched cottages to Cape Dutch houses and those like Forstal House, built of the local red brick. There are two delightful English pubs close by serving food and wonderful duck pond overlooked by the imposing church.
