The White Cottage

White Cottage is a Bed and Breakfast which opened 27 years ago owned by Ruth Matthews. You are invited to book in advance phone 01233 850583.

The White Cottage is situated on the A28 road which runs from Margate through Canterbury, Ashford and on to Hastings. We have no immediate neighbours. Guides may show TN30 6SR on the Westside of the road, we are on the Eastside.

When you arrive we give you a key to the guests entrance so you are free to come and go as you please. Your entrance is through your kitchen which is equipped with a kettle and microwave. If you would like to bring your own food and wine for your evening meal you will find plates and cutlery are available for you. Fridge, iron and board. I put fresh milk in the fridge daily for your use. The breakfast room is next to the kitchen and guests lounge with comfortable seating and tv to your right with stairs to your bedrooms. There are 3 bedrooms: one double bed en-suite, one twin and a double; the latter two share a shower and WC, although each room has a handbasin and shaving socket.

Breakfast is served from 7.30am to 8.30am, and on Sundays 9.00am. We offer orange juice or yogurt, a selection of cereals, a full English, and if you have room, toast, butter, marmalade, and homemade jam or honey. If you require a special diet please let me know...
