Why Pauline Sheehan chose Woodchurch

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.

A perfect dream cottage in the countryside

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this idyllic cottage which lived up to all our expectations. The views are absolutely stunning and the area is perfect for trips to beautiful Rye and Tenterden and walks on the lovely sandy beach at Camber.

The owners were incredibly helpful and the cottage was very clean and cosy with absolutely everything we needed. It was so pretty and characterful, we just loved it and can’t wait to go back soon!

Picturesque stay in this wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We all had such a wonderful stay at this stunning cottage, I would give it 10 stars if I could! It is absolutely beautiful inside and out, and had everything we needed - including a hot tub!! The kids loved the hot tub, and so did we! What a beautiful way to relax and enjoy the views! The owners were lovely and gave us some great suggestions on where to visit and to eat. Battle is a great place to go for the day, and we had a wonderful meal at Simply I in Rye, thanks for the suggestions! The cottage was lovely & clean and everything inside was decorated beautifully. We had everything we needed for cooking etc. I spent a lot of my time in the conservatory in the evening, relaxing and reading my book and star gazing! What a wonderful stay, we will definitely be back and I am still recommending this to all my friends!! Thanks !

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Brittons hill Cottage in November this was a family get together and we all had the most amazing time in this beautiful house with lots of room and space for all 6 of us, the hot tub was a real luxury the children adored it also the kitchen made my wife very envious we had lots of great food in the pubs and some lovely drives out also Tenterden was just a 10 minute drive with lovely shops and eateries but we would look forward to coming back to the cottage to relax as it is so comfortable and has everything you could ask for we know this area quite well and like to visit this part of Kent as it’s a great location but staying at this delightful Cottage was definitely the highlight.

Thank you so much for a perfect stay.
