About the property

Cottage in Benenden, Kent, England - Beautiful & Peaceful Location Ideally Placed For Day Trips To London, Or To France, Or To The Beach

The cottage was once our Milking Parlour. We converted it a few years ago using local materials where ever possible. The sitting room has cherry wood floors that were made using the wood from local trees that fell during the great storm of 1997. The floor boards upstairs are made from reclaimed scaffold boards that were used in the construction of the Channel Tunnel! There are green oak beams cut from local woods, original oil paintings, reclamation yard finds & quirky details that make this cottage unique. The whole cottage is centrally heated, though a wood-burning stove makes it especially cosy in winter. We even provide the logs for your wood burner. In Summer the south facing courtyard is a real sun trap. You can relax there after a hard day's exploring the numerous country walks & vineyards & gardens & pubs & beaches! We hope the cottage is equipped with everything you need, but if not, we'll try to get it for you.

Fees No additional mandatory fees

Booking Notes:
A deposit of £200 (per week or part week booked), secures your booking.
Unfortunately I do not have card facilities so payment has to be either by cheque or Bank Credit Transfer. Whichever is easier for you. The balance is not be due until 1 month before your arrival.

Changeover Day:
Change over day has always been Saturday, but in 2016 it will be changed to Friday to Friday. In certain circumstances this can be adjusted.
You can arrive any time after 4pm.
If you could check out by 10.30am, so we can clean the cottage in readiness for the next visitors, that would be great.
