Located within the private Landews estate we have two well appointed picturesque country cottages with fantastic high quality fittings and facilities. Set in the beautiful village of Challock in central Kent, our location provides an ideal base for enjoying Kent's attractions and countryside. Also conveniently located for day trips to London (via the high speed train from Ashford to St Pancras in 38 minutes) or to France via Le Shuttle or the Ferries.
Surrounded by open fields and woodland which are alive with wildlife (you will see more pheasants, rabbits, woodpeckers and partridge than you will cars).
Hop cottage has its own private garden with large lawns and country cottage flower beds, a gas BBQ and patio table and chairs provide idyllic al fresco dining. From the private garden guests can access the natural swimming lake to enjoy a fresh water dip surrounded by reeds, bull rushes and water lillies with the swallows and dragon flies in the air above, and our family of moor hens for company. With many bridleways and footpaths to explore you can unwind and relax in one of the most idyllic unspoilt spots in Kent.
Hop cottage is named after the estates heritage as a former Hop farm and has wooden cladding outside and a Kent peg tile roof.
Oak cottage is constructed from the timbers of an old Oak framed barn. Oak cottage has two private terraces and access to the swimming lake and communal grounds.
The Landews Estate provides an ideal location for a lazy or an active holiday, relax around the lake on loungers, or explore all that the 'Garden of England' has to offer. Brogdale Farm which is home of the national fruit collection is only 5 miles away. On your doorstep at Landews you can go walking, bird watching, mountain biking, horse riding, gliding or walk to Beech Court Gardens and Tea Rooms.
All of Kents other attractions are within easy reach from our central location, one of our favorites is the RH&D Light Railway, a miniature steam railway that runs across Romney marsh from Hythe to Dungeness, great fun for little kids and big kids. Alternatively, Port Lympne and Howlett's Wild Animal Parks provide a great day out for the whole family. No visit to Kent would be complete without a day in Canterbury visiting the Cathedral or doing the ghost tour and a trip to Leeds Castle.
A walk along the White cliffs of Dover followed by a trip to Dover castle provide an excellent day out with two of Kent's iconic landmarks.
However you spend your days what better way to end it than enjoying a BBQ beside the natural swimming lake or having a relaxing dip where all you can hear is bird song.
The cottage provides all the charm of a past era combined with spacious modern facilities in what we believe is one of the most beautiful parts of the world.
We look forward to welcoming you.
