Lovely comfortable stay in Leigh

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect. Loverly and warm, well equipped with everything we needed, and the garden was great for the children to get some fresh air in the morning. We immediately felt at home. We would return and would absolutely recommend the property to anyone visiting the area.

Comfy Cottage in Stunning Surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Peach Tree Cottage is a cosy cottage and offers all the appliances you need for a comfortable stay. It was clean and well maintained. My family and I stayed there for a month and really enjoyed every minute of it. My children loved feeding the chickens and playing with the dog in the beautiful grounds. Our host, Lesley was warm, welcoming and very helpful in telling us about the area. I would not hesitate recommending the cottage to other visitors.

Perfect temporary accommodation for small family

  • 5 of 5

We rented Lesley's cottage for 6 weeks as we had our kitchen extended and renovated. The property was absolutely perfect for us, we had everything we needed and the house was ideal for our dog Bondi who was warmly welcomed there. Leigh is in a great location, because it has beautiful countryside around it, but is very close to Sevenoaks. The cottage is very quiet and we loved hearing the wildlife and birds. Lesley and her family are just lovely, very accommodating and easy going.
