About the property

A wonderful and exclusive farm stay holiday cottage nestled in the countryside in Doddington, an area of outstanding natural beauty, with rolling fields, wildlife and charming village within close walking distance. This original flint cottage has been lovingly restored and is home to the intrepid travelling House Martins who frequently use the cottage in the summer nesting in the eaves.

The rural location offers a spectacular stay upon a working arable farm and for those interested in seeing the diverse landscape, the scenes are ever changing from wonderful green fields in spring, to the harvest towards the end of summer.

The cottage is a superb bolthole to escape the hustle and bustle, enjoy a stroll out along the country lanes, why not pop in for refreshment at the local pub before a short walk back to create a feast for the family in the wonderfully equipped kitchen.

The owners have lovingly restored this cottage and have given it a contemporary boutique style. A warm welcome awaits guests with a basket of local produce to be enjoyed. Ideal for couples and families whatever the time of year; for those looking for a self-catering holiday cottage set in peaceful Kentish countryside.

If you can bear to be pulled away from cottage, you could venture to the historic town of Faversham, passing by Macknade Fine Foods for a delectable choice of food and drinks, take a day trip to the City of Canterbury or perhaps a day out shopping in Ashford's Outlet. The seaside is within 20 minutes and there is an abundance of beautiful heritage gardens and homes to wow! The cottage is ideal for couples and mature families, whatever the time of year, looking for a special self-catering holiday cottage set in the peaceful Kentish countryside.

Set in the depths of the country this working farm is ideal for a real farm stay experience. Set on the outskirts of the popular village of Doddington, with its popular pub it's an ideal base to explore Kent. Leeds Castle and Sissinghurst Castle are both within 30 minutes and the charming and quaint village of Lenham with its pretty square and independent shops is perfect for a coffee. If beer is your thing, head to nearby Faversham where Shepherd Neame is based and take a tour of the Brewery. Vineyards too abound in this part of Kent - many of which are open to the public.
