Orchard House is a fine Edwardian residence, situated on the outskirts of West Hougham, near Dover.

Hougham is a small village split in two halves, it sits on the top of two chalk ridges running parallel to and about half mile from the chalk cliffs which extend from Dover to Folkestone - an ideal location to enjoy beach/pier fishing. Located on the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and about one mile away from the North Downs Way National Trail which runs for 153 miles through the Surrey Hills and Kent Downs. It starts at Farnham on the Surrey Hampshire border and ends at Dover - Gateway to England. There is a loop at the eastern end to take in the historic Cathedral City of Canterbury.


The recently refurbished house is set in 1.3 acres of lovely gardens & paddock and is surrounded by farmland and enjoys views of Dover castle. If you are fond of horse-riding, walking or cycling, the grounds of the house border a bridal path¹, public footpath and a national cycle network² route. Situated just 2 miles from Dover and Folkestone, Orchard House makes it a perfect resting point before or after crossing the channel via ferry or tunnel.

Having such a great location, West Hougham has many amenities & great days out and places to visit within a 10 minute drive away.
