Doctor John Smith’s Cottage

In a touching tribute to a long time  fan, a Doctor Who hoilday cottage come personal library has opened up in the south east of England.

Doctor John Smith’s Cottage has been set up in the memory of David Bannister who died suddenly last year at the age of 51, leaving a large collection of Who Memorablia.

Bannister, a fan since childhood, shared many happy memories watching the series with his brother Tony, who decided to refit the cottage in honour of his brother.

Most of his brothers collection is housed in the adjacent Apple Barn which contains an extensive library of video recordings and audio recollections.

Fans are welcome to stay in either the cottage’s spacious double bedroom, a single bedroom or in one of the single beds in the Apple Barn.

The cottage comes with a woodburning stove in the living room (along with a Dalek), a full equiped kitchen and a shelter private courtyard complete with garden furniture and a TARDIS.

The property is based in Lydd, Ronmey Marsh in Kent. Bookings can be made via the website.

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
