"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.\nThe large open plan sittingdining 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.\nOutside 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."
