About Michael Evans
Hello, My name is Michael Evans. I am probably best known world-wide as a fly fisherman, having been a professional fly fishing instructor, writer, film-maker and commentator for some 27 years now. I live on the beautiful Kent Sussex borders near Cowden with my two Labrador Shimmer and my hens. The holiday cottages I rent out are adjacent to my house and if I am not away on one of my trips, I always greet my guests and try to look after you personally otherwise my caretaker is on hand to ensure your stay is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
Michael Evans purchased this Cottage in 1980
Why Michael Evans chose Hartfield
I am in the heart of the English Country-side at its most beautiful and yet London is very accessible.
Please ask the owner or check their rental agreement when booking the property.
Lovely cottage in gorgeous countryside
We (family of 4) stayed in Kentview cottage for 4 nights and loved it. The view of the Kent countryside is stunning, the place was clean and well-equipped. We greatly enjoyed the use of the fireplace (although it was August!)
Michael was a very responsive and helpful host. He suggested walks and other things to do in the area. Would definitely come again.
A brilliant holiday cottage.
The cottage greatly exceeded our expectations. Spacious, comfortable and well equipped accommodation with fantastic shower rooms. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful. Situated along a quiet road with a view across the valley, the cottage is near a large number of attractions and a rail link for an easy day-trip to London.
Very comfortable and nice area with plenty’to do and visit
Wished we could have stayed longer
Beautiful views from this very well appointed cottage . Excellent accommodation, friendly, welcoming hosts,quiet and away from it all but easy to get around the area
Cottage with great view
Fabulous holiday home. Big bedrooms and great shower rooms. Lots of room and very clean throughout. Probably best home we’ve stayed in on uk. Owner very friendly and gelpful
The cottage is sited in a fabulous location, on a quiet lane and with walks all around. There was no need to use the car at all. The place is really well equipped with everything you could need, although a few more plates and mugs would be handy. There is a lovely walk across fields to an excellent pub for lunch in Cowden. We stayed here when I did the Gauntlet triathlon at Hever Castle and it is an excellent base for that.
Thank you Denise, more plates & mugs being sorted. Look forward to seeing you next year!
