Bridge Cottage built in the early 1880’s started life as a railwayman’s residence to look after the Ottinge sidings on the Canterbury to Folkestone Elham Valley Railway.
Sadly, the railway finally closed in 1947 after serving the local community and the armed forces to transport troops to the front in two world wars.
A time capsule unearthed in the 1980’s in our back garden bears witness to some of the original owners treasured possessions including clay pipes, a wedding ring and a campaign medal commemorating the British Army’s engagements in Sudan in 1882.
Today, the cottage has been generously extended and refurbished to a high standard with luxury fittings throughout.
