About Tony and Caroline
After purchasing the property at the end of 2014 we enjoyed starting our new venture in holiday rentals and have just become members of Owners Direct in March 2016. We believe every one taking a break away from their busy life styles deserves only the best. We love to travel here in the UK, Europe and even further afield and part of the fun is staying in different and varied accommodation all over the world. We know what we expect when visiting various areas and aim to exceed our expectations here at Woodlands. Our families are growing bigger and bigger. We have five lovely grown up children and their spouses and five gorgeous grandchildren and love spending time with them all. I am a qualified nurse and work with children with neuro-developmental disabilities and their families in the community. Tony runs an IT company. Our life motto is: If a job is worth doing it's worth doing properly.
Why Tony and Caroline chose Yalding
We like to offer a warm welcome and present the cottages and gardens in such a way you can relax immediately, enjoying the home comforts we all love, with a little sense of adventure as you explore the gardens, play a little tennis, possibly sit on the south facing balcony and enjoy a glass of wine and a BBQ overlooking the gardens. It's easy to discover the abundant delights of Kent, better known locally as The Garden of England.
What makes this Bungalow unique
Although the cottage is in a rural location it is only a short walk to the beautiful village of Yalding with all it's attractions. As well as beautiful countryside on your doorstep there is also easy access to London, the coast, Royal Tunbridge Wells and Canterbury with it's amazing cathedral.

Family Wedding Accommodation
Rosemary and Lavender are stylish, spacious and very well equipped bungalows. Everything is of an excellent standard. The gardens are beautiful and if you’re lucky with the weather, as we were, the tennis court and barbecues are a fantastic bonus. The rural location is very pretty and only a short drive from The Gardens in Yalding, where we attended a family wedding. Having both properties side by side enabled our large family group to stay together the night before the wedding and relax the day after. Tony and Caroline were very welcoming hosts and well organised. Everything you need is there. This is definitely a great place to stay!
We’ll equipped comfortable property
A lovely property for a large family party. Renting Lavender and Rosemary cottages was a great idea for a family party in the area for a wedding in the village of Yalding. We wished we had booked longer so we could have explored the area more.
The cottages were well equipped with little touches like washing up liquid and hand soap at the sink. My grand daughter enjoyed the toys and the beautiful garden . My daughter enjoyed the tennis court. My only quibble is that I couldn’t find any lids to match the saucepans.
Stayed in both cottages with friends and they were absolutely fantastic. Both were modern, clean and very well equipped. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous. Finally Tony & Caroline couldn't be more accommodating, fabulous hosts. We all had an amazing time and would definitely recommend these properties.
Ideal place for us
We had a wonderful weekend with our wider family. My lovely mum in law is disabled and it was perfect for her in every way. All enquiries were dealt with extremely promptly and helpfully. The accommodation was spotless with everything we needed. We all loved the tennis courts, playing hide and seek in the gorgeous gardens. Perfect place for an Easter egg hunt too! Thank you so much.
