Bockhill Farm Cottage


The cottage at Bockhill farm has been empty for some years. I've always thought that it is a shame that it has been allowed to decay for such a long period. It is now up for sale, this is the extract from the Telegraph property WEB pages:
"Wrecks with potential
£275,000
Bockhill Farm Cottage, Saint Margaret’s Bay, Kent: Perched on the top of the white cliffs, an 18th-century, brick and flint farm cottage with adjoining barn. The property, far left,(my pictures are above) is for sale on a 99-year National Trust lease. £275,000."
"The agents have some interesting words: An unspoilt brick and flint cottage, set in the heart of National Trust land, close to the cliff top, now requiring substantial improvement and offered for sale on a new National Trust lease."

I must admit that I was surprised by the price. There is no garden, although there is a share of a piece of woodland. The adjacent barn is part of the package and it is available for conversion to increase the living space or provide an office. Once the improvements and modernisation are completed this will be well place property for anyone interested in living in the countryside, any birders interested?
