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 Kent

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.

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.

Excellent Self-catering apartmentioned in a lovely area in East Farleigh.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment in July whilst visiting our first grandson in Maidstone. The apartment was well equipped, very clean, well maintained and comfortable. The views of the pear orchard were lovely. Unfortunately we did not have enough time to sit and enjoy the view. We could easily drive into Maidstone. We hope to be able to visit many times again. East Farleigh is a lovely village with fine walks along the river. We do appreciate the hospitality and generosity of Anita and Roy. Thank you. John and Maureen, Rotherham

Peaceful Countryside Setting

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting in the countryside but within a few minutes away from the town. The property was very clean, with a very well equipped kitchen, which included tea, sugar, cleaning materials. The owners were an absolute delight, I highly recommend, a home from home stay.

Excellent property in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly as described - very clean and comfortable, well equipped and in a peaceful location ideal for exploring Kent. This was our first visit to Kent and we weren't disappointed. We were very lucky with the weather during the week and this allowed us to visit many places which were easily accessible from this location - Leeds Castle, Sheffield Park and Gardens, Chartwell, Ightham Mote, Knole, Scotney Castle, Sissinghurst Castle Gardens and Howletts wild animal park.

Anita and Roy were lovely - very welcoming and helpful. We would have no hesitation in making a return visit and would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet base from which to explore Kent.
