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.

An enjoyable week for our family group of 11 persons from 1 to 70 years of age
Charming property and beautiful peaceful location within easy reach of several attractions that we all enjoyed.
Out group particularly enjoyed the RHD railway from Hythe, a late evening walk at the King´s wood, Wildwood Animal Park near Herne Bay and excellent Pub Food within walking distance at The Halfway House.
A simply beautiful and inspiring location
We used both cottages over a period of 4 days and found it suitable for all 4 generations of our family who were staying. The facilties were clean and practicable. The beds and wedding again were clean and comfortable. The surroundings were beautiful , clean and refreshing. We hope to go back again soon .
Very pleasing, many thanks.
Lovely place to stay
Amazing cottages in beautiful surroundings. Fabulous.
The two cottages were both very clean, comfortable and spacious. They were well equipped and set in beautiful surroundings. Couldn't ask for anything better. We had a really lovely few days.
Lovely cottages in the middle of nothing
We really enjoyed our holidays.
The cottages are pretty cosy and the surroundings are simply beautiful.
I calmed down directly after we arrived, this because of this peacefull quietness.
The cottages are well equipped even for a big group as we were (11p).
The landlords, Nigel and Wendy were very courteous and helpful.
I'd say that this is a place to recommend ;)
We rented both cottages as we had a large group. The surroundings are very picturesque. The cottages are well kept, well equipped and clean. We found the owners very friendly, approachable and it was nice to know they were nearby. All in all a very nice break for us over Christmas.
Thank you for your very kind review, we are very glad you enjoyed your Christmas holiday in our cottages. As you point out the cottages enjoy very picturesque surroundings and we ensure they are clean and well equipped, do come again, perhaps a summer break next time, many thanks Nigel and Wendy
