COTTAGE LITTLE APPLE BARN - *** NEW 2014 SPRING ***: 1 BEDROOM, SLEEPS 4

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Plaxtol - ***** Hamptons Farmhouse *****

***** 3 Stunning Cottages: Rural romance and activity.Safe & Fun in Kent

Hamptons Farmhouse is located in the beautifully rural area between the villages of Plaxtol and West Peckham in Kent, the Garden of England. Amazingly quiet and peaceful, set in 9 acres of land, all that can be seen is rolling countryside, yet we are just 32 miles from the centre of London with all its theatres, tourist attractions, shopping and cultural activities.

The three holiday lets include 'Stable Cottage', 'Willow Cottage' and the newly converted 'Little Apple Barn' all of which are of a very high standard and all benefit from the outstanding location and facilities of Hamptons Farmhouse.

On our 9 Acre site there is so much to do: past the cottages unfolds the beautiful gardens with duck pond on which you can paddle around on the row boat. Or play open air table tennis under the shelter of the barn; take afternoon tea on the lawns or if you feel more energetic play croquet or even tennis in the all weather courts.

The Hamptons Farmhouse site is very child-friendly, it is safe and secure (including the water areas) but is filled with adventure and excitement. The ‘Fort’ is a camouflaged climbing frame with swings, monkey bars, climbing wall and 40m zip wire. By the giant redwood tree, on which swings and trapeze hang, is the massive 17’ x 12’ super bouncy Jump King trampoline. The genuine gypsy caravan is a cosy place to chill out for children and adults alike. Secret dens, seven dwarf's woodland playhouse, climbing trees, and farmhouse animals add to the overall blissful experience. A new feature will be the Tree House - construction started last year. It should be finished spring/summer 2014.

For adults, there are so many areas of the gardens and land where you can sit and read; listen to birdsong or simply wander around. Local walks abound, one passes by the edge of our land and leads you through orchards to wonderful local pubs such as the Kentish Rifleman or 20 mins rural walk in the other direction to the Swan on the Green pub restaurant with its own microbrewery for those who like to try local ales.

The three holiday homes, Stable Cottage, Willow Cottage and the Little Apple Barn at Hamptons Farmhouse are the perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives but an easy journey to London just over an hour away and only 35 mins from Sevenoaks to Charring Cross. From there the London Eye, Theatre land, Covent Garden, Leicester Sq and West End and other tourist attractions are in easy striking distance for an evening or day out.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We were pleasantly surprised to find such a quiet,restful and gentle farm cottage so near London in the county of Kent, with its stable climate, peaceful countryside and abundant wildlife. The old barn has been well converted into single bedroomed accomodation at ground floor level wiith all the modern furnishings and facilities associated with a flat in town. Our grandchildren who live in the nearby towns of Royal Tunbridge Wells and Sevenoaks enjoyed visiting us here for picnics, to play with the various activities available and go on walks on the marked footpaths. There are a variety of wonderful pubs and inns within a few miles where you can eat meals ranging from 5 star to simple pub lunchjes and sandwiches. An idyllic place for a rest and holiday.

Really gorgeous

  • 5 out of 5
Stylish property - very well equipped, underfloor heated so really cosy even with wet and cold outside. Great views as this property is situated in a very pretty part of Kent

Rooms very nicely done out to a very good standard. very pleasantly surprised by a welcome pack including milk bread jams coffee flowers and wine at no extra cost. Hosts available to answer questions but discrete and very personable.

Several decent pubs a pleasant walk away serving very nice food and beers.

Definitely recommend this to friends and family and hope to be here again. Ideal for travel into London.
