About Nigel and Wendy Griffiths
Nigel and Wendy grew up in Kent and have always had an interest in travel and tourism. Having traveled extensively we know what makes a property and a holiday special and we have tried to provide that in our properties.

Nigel and Wendy Griffiths purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Nigel and Wendy Griffiths chose Challock
We moved back to Kent in 2012 after 20 years away and after viewing many properties we fell in love with Landews the moment we saw it. Properties in locations like this come up very rarely so we had to fight off two existing buyers and complete in 1 month to secure this as our home.
What makes this Cottage unique
Landews enjoys a beautiful rural location, surrounded by fields and woodlands. It was built as an ECO property in 1978 mainly over 1 floor so it maintains a very low key cottage feel from all angles. The village of Challock is pretty with very friendly locals, a lovely green and two good pubs. It's central location allow you to get anywhere in Kent in around half an hour.

We really enjoyed our stay in the oak cottage. The cottage had everything we needed, it was clean and comfortable, set in a wonderful location.We got to experience if only for a little while english country life.
Thank you for your kind review, we are glad you both enjoyed your stay
As last year, we are spent a pleasant trip in your cottage.
Sincerely, we like this cottage near Ashford International
Excellent stay in cosy cottage
We stayed with two little kids, 4 and 6 years old, in cosy Hop Cottage with nice and and helpful owners. . The loacation is ideal for family holidays.
The cottage is furnished simply , but fittingly to the style of the cottage, with all you need.
Very quiet and relaxing, wonderful swimming lake, unfortunately we could not use it as temperatures were a bit too cold.
Central point for lots of things to do , half an hour to Kent Coast or a bit more than half an hour to Central London from Ashford by high-speed train.
We would always visit again.
The Secret Gem in the Country Kent, a true escape from the stress of everyday life:)
This wonderful cottage was an excellent place to relax and repower myself. A great family vacation spot, going back into the nature with swimming possibliites and enjoy a quiet small farm(really quiet). This was just without any complications. Super easy, we came and went and really had seen wonderful sightseeing places, no stress. I wish we had more time it was a piece of heaven, just pur enjoyment. Thank you Nigel and Wendy what a wonderful home you have, thank you for sharing it.
Thank you for your kind review. We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay in the cottage and you recharged your batteries. We do indeed enjoy one of the most beautiful and peaceful sights in the Kent Downs area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, but as you found because we are centrally located we are only a short driver to all Kent's fabulous castles and other attractions. We look forward to having you back for a longer stay in the future Nigel and Wendy
Beautiful cottage in a beautiful setting. We stayed in oak cottage which had plenty of room for 2 of us (sleeps upto 4) the features in our cottage where wonderful as were the views outside from each of the rooms. It was so peaceful even though we were on a working farm the animals wasn't noisey as you may think (city girl 😉). We had a lovely warm welcome from owner Wendy & waved to Nigel (working on his tractor) also we met & chatted to their lovely daughter who was hopefully moving to London for work so good luck & hoped everything worked out for you in the end. I'm not sure if I want everyone to know about this gem of a place as I want to keep it for myself but it's too nice to keep a secret👍🏻. If you get the chance & you want peace & quiet take a visit I promise you will love the tranquility. 👌
