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

Beautiful house with everything you need for a perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

Church Elms Farm is a beautiful and relaxing home set in lovely grounds and only 10 mins from Ashford. We were a party of 8 adults and a 2 year old and everyone was very comfortable. We loved the dining room where we celebrated a special birthday in style.

The house was even more stunning inside than we had expected from the photos. Additionally, the kitchen was very well equipped.

Fantastic Rural Retreat

  • 5 of 5

A great getaway property for both Family's and Friends. Well appointed and very clean and tidy. Plenty of space indoors and a massive kitchen with a double oven and an Aga. Has the great addition of a very good condition tennis court and games room with table tennis, darts, pool etc. You don't really have to leave the property while you have enough food and drink to keep you going. We have been twice now with different family members each time and all of them have loved the place, looking forward to making another visit sometime in the future.

Fabulous house and grounds, with plenty to do on site

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully maintained and updated timber framed farmhouse suitable for all the family, and in our case, three generations of one family. From aged 9 and above, we like this house very much and have stayed here twice. One of the 9 year olds likes the house so much that he wants to live there when he grows up.

A property I would certainly recommend

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Church Elms Farm. Wonderful relaxing week-end. The house looked very festive for Christmas. The games room was well used by the teenagers. For a large old house it was very warm and cosy. It is ideally situated for Rye. Tenterden has lots of restaurants to choose from. Wood church village has two pubs serving food.

Lovely Farmhouse for a large family gatheriung

  • 5 of 5

Another stay at Church Elms Farmhouse. This property has everything for mixed ages. The eldest person in our group was 80 and the youngest 8. We all had a lovely time celebrating our Golden Wedding Anniversary. The Farmhouse is well-equipped and there is plenty for everyone to do. The Games Room had plenty to entertain all of us with Table Tennis, Darts etc. and the younger members of the family enjoyed playing tennis. The whole place is so relaxing and it was very enjoyable sitting by the wood burner in the evening and playing games with the rest of the family. All in all a lovely place to stay for all ages - we hope to stay again.

A wonderful birthday weekend

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Church Elms Farm with my family for my Mum's 70th birthday weekend and we all absolutely loved it. My children ran a riot with all the nooks and crannies! The cottage is beautiful both inside and out, and it was immaculately presented Andy was so easy to contact beforehand and very helpful with any questions we had. We will definitely be back. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
