About Mrs Sue Townsend

I have lived on the farm all of my life, and have been running a B&B for since 2003. The cottage was built by us in 2007 to provide a lovely place for self catering holidays as an extension of our business.

Mrs Sue Townsend purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Mrs Sue Townsend chose Maidstone

We are very lucky to live in an exceptionally beautiful area in the heart of Kent (The garden of England), but close enough to London, Canterbury, and the coast.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage was designed to be completely accessible to wheelchair users, with no thresholds or steps.

Very clean and well equipped cottage. Lovely setting away from it all. Very quiet country lanes perfect for running and dog walking.

Beautifully clean, fresh and organised. Peaceful and in private, rural, pretty setting.

  • 5 of 5

Our host was accommodating about our arrival time and there was no fuss about checking in. We were able to leave windows and doors open while we were away. Everything felt welcoming and professionally prepared. Obviously a lot of care and attention goes into providing good facilities with simple, functional amenities. Lovely secluded garden within a larger landscaped area with private drive. Lots of birds and attractive plants. A few hens in a pen were pleasingly entertaining to watch.

Roads around property were narrow but charming. Good pubs close by car and shops in nearby Staplehurst.

(Very nice / excellent / jolly good).

Comfort and quiet surroundings

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful stay in a beautiful cottage. All mod cons and everything you could hope for in a 2 week stay. Sue was a terrific host--always quick to respond to any questions but leaving us to ourselves. We found the location very central to all the things we wanted to visit in Kent and Sussex. The bluebells were spectacular in the fields and woods surrounding the farm. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to others. Thank you Sue.

A comfortable country retreat.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights while helping our daughter move house locally. The 2-bedroom self-catering cottage is well away from main roads and adjoins the house of Sue Townsend who gave us a very warm welcome on arrival. Parking is by the door of the single-storey accommodation which is well-furnished and equipped to meet all our day-to-day needs. It was comfortable and peaceful, and we thoroughly enjoyed our break there.

wat afgelegen, maar heel mooie omgeving.

Ideaal voor bezoek aan tuinen en kastelen.

Mooi om met de auto rond te rijden.
