About Andrew McCartney

My wife and I purchased the property early 2004 as a weekend retreat, then found we were not using it as much as we wished as our young daughter began controlling the weekends with school friends, sports, parties etc ( many have been there). As we live in Chislehurst I found myself just coming down to cut the grass and do maintenance. We did not want to sell the property so instead decided to rent it out and give guests the use of our period property, I enjoy putting the finishing touches before a guest arrives and do wish for guests to have an enjoyable time. When our daughter is off to university? that is when we will move down to this property in Woodchurch and I will finally get my chickens and goats..that'll do me.

Andrew McCartney purchased this cottage in 2004

The perfect cottage in Kent!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved Church Elms Farm in Kent. From the moment you see the beautiful cottage you fall in love with it. Our family is 6 kids with 2 adults and it really catered for all our needs. Everything you require the owners had thought of - from egg cups to baking trays to wood for the fire, board games and DVD's.

The beds were very comfy too and having 4 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms plus 1 en-suite was very useful for us and all the children.

The tennis court was a massive hit as was the games room. The kids had endless play whilst we cooked dinner, which was lovely to see from the kitchen window. We had a list of things to do each day and Leeds castle was a big hit and Bewl Water was beautiful too. We could have easily stayed 2 weeks. Hope to come back soon. Big thanks to the owner Andy who was so helpful throughout our stay. Top marks for a top holiday! Highly recommended!

Brilliant house for my family group... in great part of Kent!

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 6, celebrating my Mum's 80th and we just loved our stay in this great house. It was so comfortable, well equipped and beautifully furnished (the photos don't do it justice!). We had marvellous weather and so were also able to enjoy the lovely garden at the side and even managed a few sets of tennis on the very well appointed hard tennis court! We unfortunately didn't have time to make use of the games room but that looked great too with table tennis, snooker and table football, plus a bar!

The location is very rural - the road was really quiet and it was just a few minutes drive to Woodchurch and 10 to Tenderten (which looked lovely and also there's a Waitrose!). It's really handy for lots of interesting places - we visited Rye and Dungeness on the first day, then Sissinghurst on the 2nd day (loved them all!). We ate out at the Bull in Benenden on Saturday night. It didn't have a very extensive menu, but what the rump steaks in particular were amazing and only £13!! So highly recommended!

We'd love to return to this fantastic house and area again very soon. Many thanks Andy!

Truly relaxing break in the countryside

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this quirky property. Full of beams, sloping floors and single steps in and out of each door gave the building the character worthy of a house originally built in the 1300s. Spent most of our time watching the birds in the garden, walking around the pond admiring the fruit trees, in the games room playing pinball, pool and table football or merely strolling down the field to say hello to the neighbour's donkey and horses. Perfect location and great things to do in the area. Must visit the Rare Breeds Farm (which is about 6 minutes away from the property). Highly recommend for family with older children or groups of couples.

Beautiful house and grounds.

  • 5 of 5

A really spacious and well maintained house. It have everything you could want and the selection of food and drink when we arrived was both welcome and generous. The games room was so well equipped and that and the tennis court were enjoyed by old and young. A really great family holiday.
