About Philippa

Married mother of four. Twins of 23, and a 17 and 15 year old. We have a labrador dog and a pug dog and a cat and 4 chickens. I work part time in London and enjoy gardening, tennis and cooking.

Why Philippa chose Brenchley

Very peaceful with lovely views over our fields. It is very newly decorated and there is a power shower and soft fluffy white towels. The sheets are 400 thread count cotton and the bed is a King size and anti allergy and very comfortable.

The duvet is made from down and is 13 tog.

What makes this cottage unique

Great walks from the house and a local pub 5 minutes walk away.

Beautiful experience in Brenchley, and Kent!

  • 5 of 5

As vacations go, seldom had we ever experienced a more peaceful, homecoming experience, as this cottage, in Brenchley. Being our first travels to Kent, with uncertainty galore, this rental turned into the centerpiece of visiting Castles, historic sites, the white cliffs of Dover, and even visiting local eateries, stores, and pubs, that we won't soon forget (i.e., Horsmonden, Paddock Wood, Matfield, etc.).

Our best, unexpected treat, was waking up to walk outside into falling snow! We were mesmerized by the snow coverings that were perfectly picturesque on the home and plants galore, making something as simple as driving in the countryside a wonder, as everything popped with accented color and beauty.

The cottage itself was so cozy and welcoming. It was the perfect experience for breaking away from the demands of the daily grind.

It goes without saying...we will be back to visit. The reasons being so many sites still left to see; to simply stay peaceful on the estate; and, to enjoy - once more - this Beautiful experience in Brenchley, and Kent!

Lovely cosy cottage for two!

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here for 2 nights over New Year. Lovely cottage with all the essentials you need for a short break. The wood burner as a real asset and made it feel all the more cosy. Would definitely stay again.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed several days at the Old Stables and the remaining days at the Poulhurst cottage. Both cottages had it owns charm and stocked with all the essentials. Pictures do not do each one any justice! Philippa was an incredible host and available whenever needed, yet was never intrusive. The location was just perfect and exactly what we were looking for, a calm, quiet, and peaceful retreat. I would definitely return! I miss the scent of logs burning! Thank you Philippa!
