About Andrew McCartney

My wife and I purchased the property early 2004 as a weekend retreat, then found we were not using it as much as we wished as our young daughter began controlling the weekends with school friends, sports, parties etc ( many have been there). As we live in Chislehurst I found myself just coming down to cut the grass and do maintenance. We did not want to sell the property so instead decided to rent it out and give guests the use of our period property, I enjoy putting the finishing touches before a guest arrives and do wish for guests to have an enjoyable time. When our daughter is off to university? that is when we will move down to this property in Woodchurch and I will finally get my chickens and goats..that'll do me.

Andrew McCartney purchased this cottage in 2004

Truly relaxing break in the countryside

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this quirky property. Full of beams, sloping floors and single steps in and out of each door gave the building the character worthy of a house originally built in the 1300s. Spent most of our time watching the birds in the garden, walking around the pond admiring the fruit trees, in the games room playing pinball, pool and table football or merely strolling down the field to say hello to the neighbour's donkey and horses. Perfect location and great things to do in the area. Must visit the Rare Breeds Farm (which is about 6 minutes away from the property). Highly recommend for family with older children or groups of couples.

Beautiful house and grounds.

  • 5 of 5

A really spacious and well maintained house. It have everything you could want and the selection of food and drink when we arrived was both welcome and generous. The games room was so well equipped and that and the tennis court were enjoyed by old and young. A really great family holiday.

A splendid time is guaranteed for all

  • 5 of 5

We had a glorious long weekend to celebrate our Dads 70th and everyone had a fantastic time.

The house itself is lovely with so much character and decorated tastefully and beautifully throughout. The gardends and grounds are well kept and we were lucky to have great weather so made use of the BBQ and outside space lots. It was lovely to have a wander around the fields and you certainly feel away from it all. Each room has it's own personality and there is enough room to find a peacful spot if you want to get out of the cooking or washing up!

Andy left a lovely "welcome" pack for us which was a nice touch and included milk, butter, wine etc. to get us started. There were 4 couples in each of the main bedrooms and Andy put an extra double bed up in the top for our nephew worked great. The main living room and dining room are big, spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you are likely to need and plenty of glasses, crockery and cutlery. There is an extra fridge in the utility room which is useful if wanting to keep beers and wine chilled along with washer/dryer.

The games room was well used and although we took a few bits down with us (cues, table tennis bats) the equipment there was in decent enough shape and a great time was had by all - even the losers! The only thing i would say is that it would be useful to have a fridge in the games room to keep drinks cold. The tennis court was also used many times and there is also a play barn for the toddlers.

The local pubs are just a tad too far to walk to but decent enough and the village green was lovely - and had a cricket match when we were there. Close by is Rye and Tenterden which are both nice to wander around but this really has everything you need.

Overall it was a fantastic weekend and Dad (and Mum!) really enjoyed themselves... as did us (adult) kids.

Have already recommended to friends and already thinking of another occasion we have so that we can come back again.

Top marks all round.

Owner's Response: Thanks Jason for your kind and comprehensive review, glad to hear you enjoyed your stay.....Not sure about the drinks fridge in the games room though (could you imagine the extra bottles that would need clearing away), can't have guests enjoying themselves too much! (LOL, Just kidding). Look forward to welcoming you back sometime. Thanks again. Kind regards. Andy

Delightful

  • 5 of 5

It would be hard to think of anything negative to say about this place - the impression is that the owner has put a lot of time into trying to ensure that nothing is forgotten. Absolute privacy in the beautiful three acre plot with no restrictions as to where you can go - lots of wildlife with a natural pond and a resident moorhen, tawny owls by night and cuckoos by day and plenty of rabbits.

Inside there is total comfort with everything spick and span and scrupulously clean. The beds are very comfortable and the house is warmed by the Rayburn in the kitchen, so welcoming at breakfast time in early May. We lit the log fire and enjoyed the ambience in the living room around the big inglenook fireplace.

Our children loved the games room and they learned to play tennis in the full sized court - they particularly enjoyed the trampoline.

Not all of our party could make it as we had hoped and, alas, my mother whose hundred-and-first birthday we were celebrating couldn't stay overnight as the stairs were too much for her - nevertheless she was hugely enraptured with the place and has been talking of little else since.

I have rented approximately ten holiday homes over the years and they have been uniformly of a high quality - however this one was the best.
