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

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.

We very much enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

The property is large, spacious and had everything we needed. The tennis court and grounds were lovely and the space meant the kids could run around and play - it was idyllic.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful house. We wanted somewhere we could spend a week with our 3 sons aged 20, 23 & 30, their partners and our 3yr old granddaughter & it worked perfectly, loads of space, so much to do, games room, playing tennis, puzzles & games for our granddaughter and of course the slide & trampoline, the added bonus was the lovely weather we had all week.

Everything we needed to cook large meals was there for us.

Tenterden is a lovely town to wander round and it has a great play park.

We now need another week to explore the area as we hardly left the house but sadly we have to go home.
