About the property


Nestled at the foot of the North Downs on the outskirts of Maidstone, our six acre smallholding offers you the chance to relax, to enjoy life at a slower pace, while you admire the stunning views from your private patio, wander around the allotment or take a stroll along the Pilgrim’s Way. For those seeking a little more activity, however, both children and adults are welcome to help out with the animals and with chickens, geese, ducks, pigs and sheep there’s plenty to do. Bubble and Squeak, our alpacas, love being fed and Harold, our turkey, is always keen to make new friends.

About laurain wallace

We like the country life with all our animals, which do make us laugh a lot with their silly ways, and I feel so lucky to get up every morning and have the views of the North downs. It's nice to have friends and guest enjoy it has much as myself and my partner Mick.

laurain wallace purchased this cottage in 1970

Why laurain wallace chose Kent

My partners parents bought the property, to get out of London. They fancied a bit of the good life. I moved here about 7 years ago after meeting Mick on a building site in 2000, at first I found it rather remote from the town life, but to be honest we are very central for many thing, Dover, London, beautiful coast lines, Canterbury and even a pizza delivery service which we never had when I first moved here.

What makes this cottage unique

Views of the North downs when you sit on your patio, take a stroll up the garden and feed the varies birds and animals.

Welcoming, relaxing, spotless cottage with helpful friendly hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Our week in Kent was enhanced by staying in this well turned out, bright, cheerful, comfortable cottage. The listing description was accurate in every way. We were welcomed by one of the owners and some of her delightful homemade lemon drizzle cake.

The cottage had everything we needed. The kitchen was well equipped and everything in it was spotlessly clean. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was spotless and had beautifully soft towels. There is ample parking and of course the small holding animals to visit. When we had a small problem it was resolved and fixed straight away.

For much of our week we were able to breakfast and have an evening drink out on the patio. We visited Canturbury, Rochester, Igthem Mote, Sissinghurst, Leeds Castle, Quex Park, Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate with ease.

If we go back to Kent, we would look to stay here again, and would heartily recommend it.
