|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Nestled at the foot of the North Downs on the outskirts of Maidstone, our six acre smallholding offers you the chance to relax, to enjoy life at a slower pace, while you admire the stunning views from your private patio, wander around the allotment or take a stroll along the Pilgrim’s Way.
For those seeking a little more activity, however, both children and adults are welcome to help out with the animals and with chickens, geese, ducks, pigs and sheep there’s plenty to do. Bubble and Squeak, our alpacas, love being fed and Harold, our turkey, is always keen to make new friends.

We like the country life with all our animals, which do make us laugh a lot with their silly ways, and I feel so lucky to get up every morning and have the views of the North downs. It's nice to have friends and guest enjoy it has much as myself and my partner Mick.
laurain wallace purchased this cottage in 1970
My partners parents bought the property, to get out of London. They fancied a bit of the good life. I moved here about 7 years ago after meeting Mick on a building site in 2000, at first I found it rather remote from the town life, but to be honest we are very central for many thing, Dover, London, beautiful coast lines, Canterbury and even a pizza delivery service which we never had when I first moved here.
Views of the North downs when you sit on your patio, take a stroll up the garden and feed the varies birds and animals.

I stayed in Williow Cottage for 3 weeks, heavily pregnant and alone with my 2 year old son to be nearby to family whilst visiting from the country we live, so was a little apprehensive but upon arrival I was greeted by the very warm and friendly owners and felt instantly reassured. The farm is very safe and perfect for children. The cottage itself was spotless, spacious and had everything I could have possibly needed. The owner had added to very sweet finishing touches and it's clear that a lot of thought had gone into decorating the property.
Opening the doors each morning so such lovely views of the horse and alpacas and green fields would always bring a smile to my face.
The 2 farm dogs were particularly friendly and my son and I fell in love with them.
The owner was always on site and was there instantly if I needed anything (for example a paddling pool on a very warm day!)
Lots to do nearby (with a car or taxi).
My only regret is having so many visitors whilst I was there as they all want to book and I'm worried that there won't be any availability next year!
We will definitely be staying again.
We had an amazing week at the farm with Lauraine and Mick. The cottage was clean and comfy and had everything we needed for a great stay. The walks to the downs were great. You can also walk to Harrietsham village with pub/shop and other great pubs and eating places are just a short drive away. Maisie our rottie loved the alpacas, chickens, turkeys, sheep and pigs. Highly recommended 5 star country break. Kev and Rebecca, Kent
Avery warm welcome from Laurain, extremely clean and well appointed cottage with little to nothing missing, remembering naturally that the cottage is self catering. The animals on the small holding are a delight, extremely friendly and obviously happy with their surroundings and conditions. I would certainly recommend this establishment to others.
The cottage was absolutely immaculate, spotlessly clean, and looking as though it had just been decorated, and is very comfortable and well-appointed. It's on a smallholding, and looks out over fields, but there's a patio area in front, with table and chairs, and very attractive small flower beds. The owners, Laurain and Mick, are lovely people, VERY friendly and helpful (Laurain even gave us ingredients for a bean salad we were making for our son's wedding, which was taking place locally, to save us from having to fight our way through heavy traffic, which was due to Operation Stack). There are animals to visit on site, the star being Harold the turkey. The only thing we didn't like was having to leave at the end of our stay! We would thoroughly recommend this for a holiday stay.
We had a lovely Easter break at Willow Cottage with our 2 sons. Lauraine was so welcoming and left us a nice welcome pack plus lovely fresh eggs during our stay. The cottage is small but perfectly furnished, lovely bedding and comfortable beds. Short walk to village which has a nice pub and a station. We will definitely return.
Thanks very much

Willow became our home for a month and we couldn't have chosen better. The property was clean, comfortable and well equipped, and felt surprisingly spacious considering there was 4 of us and our retriever.
Laurain was so helpful and kind, but gave us privacy at all times.
The surroundings and countryside are amazing.
Thanks for making a potentially stressful time into an enjoyable one.
Would definitely recommend!
