Rural idyl just moments from places of interest

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect apartment for our stay near Maidstone. Anita & Roy were very accommodating, allowing us to arrive early. There is nothing to criticise! Milk, coffee, tea, sugar, dishwashing tablets, Dove shampoo, condition and soap to mention just a few of the extras provided. To top everything off the bedding had all been ironed and all the crockery, glasses and cutlery all matched, very unusual in a rental property! A lovely quiet location, we went for a country walk directly from the front door. All in all this is certainly a 5* property.

What a find.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little property. We stayed for 5 nights and it was lovely to come home to our own little haven after along day sightseeing around the area. Anita kindly took in our case that had been delayed at Heathrow. I highly recommend this property.

comfy clean and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

This property worked well for us when visiting family in the area. Comfortable 5 ft bed. Efficient heating system. Well equipped small kitchen area. We appreciated the dishwasher and all the little extras included like tea/coffee, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, tea towels etc.. Dove and simple products in the bathroom were perfect for us.

We needed a small place for two, near enough to visit our children for the Easter weekend. This apartment was perfect - with a big comfy bed and luxurious bathroom (after running around with grandchildren all day!) and a very well equipped kitchen.

Perfect location for exploring Kent

  • 5 of 5

A perfect location to explore the Kent countryside and surrounds. Nothing to fault in either the friendliness of the owners or the condition of the property which was beautifully maintained - all was five star and more besides. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending to anyone visiting the south east of the UK as it has everything -easy access to many National Trust properties and beautiful country pubs and restaurants as well as very close to the Kent coast.

From the Owner

We live a peaceful existence in the heart of the Kent countryside with wide ranging views across the Teston valley, and often enjoy the company of passing horse riders, dog walkers and the like. Lots of footpaths are close by to explore the area in more detail, and a local hostelry is 20 minutes walk thru the fields, lovely on a summer evening. 2015 winners, Best in Village Front Garden, Area 3.
