About Mrs Arabella Brown

Mrs Brown grew up in Kent, so always wanted to return. As their boys started to move around and toddle, she knew it was time to move from London. Mr and Mrs Brown fell in love with the property and its location the moment they came down the drive.

Mrs Arabella Brown purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Mrs Arabella Brown chose Tunbridge Wells

This fabulous, romantic, baby and pet friendly cottage has stunning views. Tucked away within woodland, this cottage, although rural, is only a short distance from 'civilisation'. It couldn't be more perfectly situated. A perfect get away for a 10 day break, or a long weekend. In summer, explore the countryside and finish off with a swim in the heated pool. In winter, enjoy long crisp walks and afterwards warm up in front of a log fire. Every evening take pleasure in watching the sun set over the hills.

What makes this cottage unique

'The view gets me every time. I could never tire of it.'

Great country getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just spent Easter at this property and thought it was a fantastic cottage. Everything is to a high spec - comfy beds, wood-burner, lovely grounds. It is also really well situated and is close to Tunbridge Wells and lots of other Kent attractions. We will definitely return and would highly recommend it.

Great cottage in beautiful rural setting.

  • 4 of 5

This is a well maintained cottage with everything you need for a great stay. Set in the beautiful Kent countryside, at the end of a wooded lane, it doesn’t get much more peaceful than this.

The couple that own the cottage, live in the house next door and are very welcoming, friendly and helpful.

I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to get away from it all.

Owner's Response: Thank you for kind feedback. Yes it is a perfect place to get away from it all, but only a few miles from the beautiful town of Tunbridge Wells. There is also easy access to the A21 to go further afield.
