About Anita Beal

We are a semi-retired professional couple, 45 years married, with two children and four grand-children, who visit us often! We enjoy our garden and small vegetable plots.

Anita Beal purchased this apartment in 1987

Why Anita Beal chose East Farleigh

We quite literally moved in with the hurricane of October 1987. Our re-location to Kent was forced thru business and we have never regretted the move. We have enjoyed the rural location whilst being close to all amenities .

What makes this apartment unique

We live a peaceful existence in the heart of the Kent countryside with wide ranging views across the Teston valley, and often enjoy the company of passing horse riders, dog walkers and the like. Lots of footpaths are close by to explore the area in more detail, and a local hostelry is 20 minutes walk thru the fields, lovely on a summer evening. 2015 winners, Best in Village Front Garden, Area 3.

We found the apartment to be immaculately clean and very well appointed with all the comforts of home. The hosts were delightful and helpful, without being intrusive. Can't recommend them highly enough. Thank you for having us to stay.

Perfectly presented with everything we needed. Our host was very welcoming and helpful.

Lovely apartment with easy parking. Everything immaculate and well maintained.

Only disappointment was the width of the beds. We requested 2 single beds instead of the double and they were very narrow.

Otherwise, perfect for our needs. Thanks v much

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and 5* award. We very much appreciate your comments with respect to the size of the single beds, but sadly, one 5’ king size double (advertised) will only convert to two 2’6” singles. We are pleased you found the apartment comfortable and that it suited your family’s needs. Kind regards Anita and Roy,

Comfortable and cosy

  • 5 of 5

The owners have considered all that guests could possibly need. The apartment is clean and compact. We particularly liked the shower. The owners are very friendly but non intrusive. It was good to know that they were on site but we didn't need to call on them because everything was very straightforward.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

This very sweet, accessible, comfortable, clean and fully equipped holiday let is wonderful. It has great views and there is a lovely feel to the area. There are horses in the paddock nearby and tthe pear orchard right at your back door offers a real sense of country living. Perhaps surprisingly - given the very peaceful and relaxing atmosphere - there are many good facilities, villages and towns close by. This place was outstanding for us, and we have had long experience of the self-catering scene in the UK. The property owners are simply lovely people. They are keen to ensure that their guests are taken care of, but are mindful of the need for privacy. They are friendly, courteous and very likeable, and certainly added to the sheer pleasure of our stay. This is an excellent holiday let which satisfies on every level, and will surely please anyone else looking for a top quality experience.
