About Sarah Goodchild

My Name is Sarah and I live at the adjacent property with my husband and 3 children, 2 dogs and a cat . We moved from London 10 years ago to enjoy the beauty of rural Kent. I run a business from home photographing families and children, and have a photographic studio next to the house.

We love living in the countryside and loads of chickens and a large vegetable patch..

There are usually fresh eggs available and depending on the season, some fresh organic veg as well!

We are always here to help with anything you need and are happy to offer any information on local tourist resort and restaurants.

Sarah Goodchild purchased this chalet in 2005

Beautiful peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We felt comfortable and relaxed in this chalet. We enjoyed the local woodland walk, the views, the privacy, the friendly hosts, using the fire pit and the proximity (4 miles as the crow flies) to the local beach at Dymchurch.

Relaxing and brilliant for the kids

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location and very cosy wee chalet. Owners very friendly and welcoming. The garden is amazing, with fabulous views, sweet play caravan, trampoline and chickens. The fire pit was great too, and we had some lovely BBQ dinners. The chalet is basic (as advertised) but spacious and comfortable, with a great shower. The sofa bed was surprisingly comfortable, although I can imagine some may not find it so.

Overall we have had a lovely time here, and we would recommend it to anyone with kids or not, and who are not fussed about luxury accommodation.

Ashford, Kent, England

Nature sounds, peaceful and lovely, helpful owners

  • 4 of 5

When you are looking for a place in the countryside but easy access to ashford, this is it. Sarah is an amazing friendly and helpful owner. What ever you need, she is there for you. Chickens for your scraps of veggies and fruit! Love a fire in the eves, the facility and wood is there. A tranquil walk or endless view from the hillside the chalet is on. Eventhough you're in the back garden of the owners, the shrubs and fence gives you more than enough privacy and freedom.
