Description

Kentview Cottage

Kent View Cottage is single story brick and tiled building, converted into a luxury holiday cottage in 2012, with stunning views from every room over our own land across the valley into Kent on the other side of the county border.

It provides comfortable accommodation for 4 people with two double bedrooms (one with a king-size bed and one with two doubles) both with under-floor heated, en-suite wetrooms. There is also a large sitting/dining room, including a fireplace with a wood burning stove, a kitchen with a breakfast area.

Kentview is available to let by the week (fri-fri) on a fully inclusive basis.

The cottage provides both privacy (our two holiday cottages share separate access and parking away from the main house) and yet the comfort and safety of knowing the owner lives in the main house adjacent. The private lane leading to the farm also serves a small hamlet further on but is a no-through road and so there is both on-road and of

About the property

E9066

Little Saxbys Farm is approached from a private driveway well away from the main road. Both our cottages are former red brick and clay tiled farm buildings recently restored and converted to fully furnished holiday accommodation. Both cottages offer two double bedrooms (one with a king-size bed and one with two doubles) both with en-suite wet rooms or bathroom. The cottages both have all the comforts of modern day living plus wood burning stoves. Real oak furniture and flooring give the cottages a warm, comfortable and traditional feel, but it is really the stunning views and location that set us apart.

About Michael Evans

Hello,

My name is Michael Evans. I am probably best known world-wide as a fly fisherman, having been a professional fly fishing instructor, writer, film-maker and commentator for some 23 years now. I live on the beautiful Kent Sussex borders near Cowden with my two Labradors Riffle & Shimmer. The holiday cottages I rent out are adjacent to my house and if I am not away on one of my trips, I always greet my guests and try to look after you personally otherwise my caretaker Sally will be on hand to ensure your stay is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

Michael Evans purchased this cottage in 1980

Why Michael Evans chose Kent

I am in the heart of the English Country-side at its most beautiful and yet London is very accessible.

A good looking cottage in a very nice spot

  • 5 of 5

We, four adults, rented the Sussex Stable for a week in June. The cottage is a very nice converted stable where we had a wonderful time. The kitchen is well equipped with a washing machine and dishwasher. Both bedrooms have en-suite. The owner, Michael, is a kind man who helps you with all you want to know or do.

The cottage is situated in a area where you can make very nice walks through the fields. Cowden has a railway station with good links to London, but also from nearby East Grinstead you can be in London in an hour.

Around Cowden are nice towns such as Royal Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge and East Grinstead. But also a lot of small villages, who are nice to visit.

A must do is the Blue Bell railway, a steam train running from East Grinstead to Sheffield Park.

Wij, vier volwassenen, hebben de Sussex Stable voor een week in juni gehuurd. De cottage is een zeer mooie omgebouwde stal waar we prima vakantie hebben gehad. De keuken is goed uitgerust met een wasmachine en vaatwasser. Beide kamers hebben een eigen badkamer. De eigenaar, Michael, is een zeer vriendelijke man die je helpt met alles wat je wilt weten of doen.

De cottage ligt in een gebied waar je heel mooie wandelingen kunt maken door de velden. Cowden heeft een treinstation met goede verbindingen naar Londen, maar ook vanuit East Grinstead ben je in een uur in Londen.

Rond Cowden zijn leuke stadjes zoals Royal Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge en East Grinstead. Maar ook veel kleine dorpjes, die leuk zijn om te bezoeken.

Een aanrader is Blue Bell Railway, een stoomtrein die rijdt van East Grinstead naar Sheffield Park.

Wonderful well-appointed cottage with great views

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Sussexside cottage during the school term break, with my mother and my daughter, and had a wonderful stay. The stables have been beautifully converted with a better equipped kitchen & nicer bathrooms than our own at home.

It was the perfect spot for walks in the Cowden countryside with refreshments at the local pub before heading back to a cosy evening in front of the fireplace.

Michael is a gracious and very helpful host, who even helped us from the train station and back. We used a local taxi company for our one rainy day trip to Penshurst Place, which was lovely as well.

Kjempefint opphold på flott sted

  • 5 of 5

Vi er en norsk familie som leide Kentview-hytten en uke i juli 2016, og som hadde et kjempefint opphold. Hytten ligger på et gårdstun i svært landlige og rolige omgivelser, typisk frodig Kent-landskap. Vi brukte hytten som et utgangspunkt for reiser rundt omkring i Kent, til London (ca 45-50 minutter med tog fra Cowden stasjon 5 minutters kjøretur unna) og andre deler av sør-England. Det er verdt å merke seg at denne hytten koster det samme for en hel uke som to-tre overnattinger på et ordinært hotell i London. Dette er uansett også veldig mye hyggeligere. Gårdbruker og hytteeier Michael Evans er dessuten en særdeles omgjengelig og hyggelig kar. Kan trygt anbefale dette stedet. Hilsen familie fra Asker.
