Rose Street Cottage and its two neighbouring properties are the only remaining homes of a number that were built for Sheerness Dockyard workers in the 18th and 19th centuries – often using timber “Chips” from the docks. They are weather boarded, roofed with Welsh slate and are Grade II listed.
One-time home to the Kicks shipwright family, the Cottage has been a furniture shop and Curd’s Wet and Dry Fish’n’Chip shop. It is dressed with objects brought by locals over many years to evoke the Island’s quirky stories.
When you come into this intimate and intriguing space, you will experience vibrant Arts events and workshops in a cottage atmosphere and enjoy changing monthly Gallery exhibitions.
On sunny Saturdays, you can treat yourself (and friend) to a delicious cream tea in our Cottage Garden. We feel your visit will conjure some vivid memories and you will leave having absorbed something of Sheppey’s rich history.
We are a Wheels of Time and Kent Children’s University registered attraction. (See News on this website for some background on Kent Children’s University)
