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

A truly amazing home and grounds

  • 5 of 5

Church Elms Farm is a beautiful home , the grounds, tennis courts and games room ensure you have a memorable stay. Our added bonus was the sunshine. The house has everything you need and more . The rooms are so bright and airy and the decor and homely touches including a generous welcome pack were perfect. It was for a family get together and there was something to do from sunrise to sundown. The setting is very tranquil even the cockerel down the road did not crow until 8 am when we were on the terrace watching the birds and soaking up the early morning sun. Followed by breakfast on the back patio with fresh eggs purchased a few doors down. The games room and tennis courts are excellent with plenty of equipment , darts , table tennis, table football and pool all ensured healthy competition between all of us. It was a really lovely stay and I can understand why people return time and again, I know we hope to .

Thank you it was beautiful.

Perfect long weekend away at Church Elms

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful long weekend away with the family at Church Elms. The house was very comfortable and well equipped, although most of our time was spent in the grounds as the weather was so glorious. There are lots of different seating areas in the gardens as well.

The owner was very helpful and accommodating.

The Games Room and tennis court was a real bonus, everyone so enjoyed using them. The Welcome pack was so thoughtful and much appreciated. We went on 2 circular walks from the property using the Public footpaths across the fields, so nice not using the cars for the whole weekend. The bluebells in the woods were stunning. As we were walking past the Woodchurch Vineyard we met the owner who gave us a guided tour and some tastings of the wines produced. Well worth a visit. Would love to stay at Church Elms again.

Excellent stay at Church Elms Farm

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful relaxing stay at Church Elms Farm this week. We arrived to find a lovely warm house, a welcome pack of treats and all that a five star holiday home should provide. We have stayed at many holiday homes over the last 25 years, and this one sits with the best. There was nothing that we could not find for the kitchen, even though previous experience has meant that we came armed with those essentials lesser places have lacked. In terms of entertainment; we loved the tennis court, games room and the grounds. Watching the local wildlife, especially the birds attracted to the pretty kitchen garden and the rabbits that were often seen as we played tennis. We did not have much time to watch the dvds that are on offer, there was no need - or time!

I would recommend this holiday home as a great place to stay and relax.

Lovely spacious house full of character

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here to celebrate a family birthday. It is a beautiful house with a stunning lounge with a log fire which was very welcome as it snowed while we were staying! The kitchen was very well equipped and the games room was fun. The perfect place to celebrate a special birthday.
