About John Lansley

We currently live in Scotland where we are renovating a castle for use as a holiday rental. We have two grown up children and a beautiful new grand daughter. We have one dog who travels with us to France and up and down the country.she loves nothing better than being in the car going somewhere. We love travelling and exploring new places, we became involved in holiday homes because of our own love for self catering accommodation and to try to provide that little bit extra or bit different. Each year we try to improve the houses as much for our benefit as for our guests, as our family and ourselves enjoy the house and surrounding area.

John Lansley purchased this House in 1980

Why John Lansley chose Tonbridge and Malling District

This was our family home, we have spent twenty plus years here, raising our family. It is a beautiful part of England. Our family still live in the area and so we still visit this area on a regular basis. It is near to London, yet rural. It has good access to road, rail and air networks and is well located for trips to the continent. The walking from here is excellent, there being a vast network of footpaths.

                                              Nice house spoilt!

                                              Gillian T.

                                              This is a lovely warm spacious house which was spoilt because it had not been cleaned properly prior to our arrival. I don't expect to rent a house only to have to clean it when we arrive.

                                              Owner's Response:

                                              As alway the house was cleaned prior to our guests arrival, however we respect the guests views and responded immediately. We always like feedback good or bad, so that we can improve our property for future guests.

                                              Fantastic family home

                                              Claire D.

                                              Perfect home base for our uk holiday. Lovely country setting but close enough to amenities and getting to our family.

                                              Lovely, spacious house.

                                              Jayne G.Saffron Walden

                                              We rented this house for our family to stay in for our son's wedding. The house was just perfect for our needs, very spacious and well equipped. Having a second smaller sitting room and the option of eating in the dining area or the kitchen meant that we had plenty of space to spread out and invite other family members over to visit. It is in a beautiful village with easy access to many places of interest. We had a wonderful time, many thanks to Sue and John.

                                              Great retreat


                                              Fantastic house in beautiful location

                                              Great for dog walking. Stunning countryside. House immaculate, spacious and all bedrooms massive. Loads of places to site see nearby and seaside not far either. We had such a great time we booked again for September as soon as we came home!
