We bought this beautiful cottage as the moment we walked through the gates it was like stepping back in to a different time

The sun was shining there were baby lambs in the fields next to the cottage and this chocolate box cottage sat in the middle of the lovely secluded garden surrounded by wonderful views of the countryside and we just knew this was a very special place and it is we are sure you will love staying here just as much as we do.

Beautiful Thatched secluded cottage with wonderful views from the garden and cosy conservatory, Closes to beautiful beaches, wonderful towns and villages, historic castles nearby, great shopping in the designer outlet.

National trust gardens, great for walks and exploring the countryside also fast train services in to London.

COSY IN KENT

  • 5 out of 5
This is a lovely little cottage, centrally located in easy driving distance to many South Eastern attractions. We spent a week here at the beginning of October this year (2012). The cottage is well equipped and the bed was very comfortable. The place was clean and cosy. Pauline and Chris took very good care of us. We had a problem with the internet connection while we were there and Chris responded quickly and got us back in business!

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL COTTAGE EVER

  • 5 out of 5
This Cottage has to be seen to be believed !
like a fairytale sitting picture perfect in its own garden with the most amazing views
of the countryside and resident sheep.
Inside is utterly charming and characterful very tastefully furnished and all in keeping with the style of the cottage except for the wonderful colored chandeliers adding that bit of wow factor which we loved so quirky.
we loved everything about it and what a great area to visit so many lovely villages and castles to visit also great shopping we never wanted to leave and only wish it was mine so i did not have to.
thank you so much as you know we have already booked again.

BEAUTIFUL COTTAGE IN BEAUTIFUL SCENERY!

  • 5 out of 5
Stunning!
Before our arrival the owner was exceptionally helpful, providing us with lots of details of what to do in the area, and where the best restaurants to go were etc. When we arrived we were stunned.... it is such a beautiful, picturesque cottage with a lovely view across the countryside. It was beautifully furnished and in a great location. Comfy beds, and great décor.
The garden was beautifully done as well, and I loved sitting out in the conservatory in the mornings with it's view into the countryside.
We had a fabulous time, thank you so much for all your useful tips!
We will be back!
