    About this property

    • The Old Rectory is a charming family house situated next to All Saints Church in the village of Burmarsh and on the edge of the atmospheric Romney Marsh with its abundant wildlife, historic medieval churches and big skies.

      The house offers splendid family accommodation with plenty of reception rooms and a generous ratio of bathrooms to bedrooms. The ceiling heights are excellent and the house is naturally light.

      To the rear and side of the house is a four car garage with first floor that, subject to permission, would make a very generous annexe or secondary accommodation. As it stands it provides excellent storage.

      The garden and grounds extend to approximately 2.46 acres and offer up views to the north of the escarpment with views to Lympne Castle and the Safari Park. The present owners have never used chemicals on the land and favour a natural organic approach to the gardens and grounds.
