Headcorn Cottage Rental Photos and Description

A modern self contained holiday let in rural setting (rated 4* 2015 visit UK)

A self contained annex that's located in the grounds behind the owners family house, its peaceful and provides privacy and the use of its own small fenced gravelled courtyard. Surrounded by farmland but only 800 meters from the local Pub and 2 miles to the nearest Village of Staplehurst or Headcorn. The annexe has Wifi (sometimes in bad weather this signal is low) and two Tv's with free sat and DVD. The open plan loft room upstairs has space to sleep up to 4 people together. Two pretty windows with blackout blinds and a built in wardrobe, TV, small sofa, dressing table with hair dryer, bookcase (with books, DVDs and CD's). The kitchen is fully equipped with crockery, pans cutlery, fridge and small freezer, microwave, kettle and toaster. The lounge has dining table and 4 chairs, sofa, Rocking Chair, coffee tables, 26' wall mounted TV/DVD player with free sat. Bathroom is downstairs with shower, basin, toilet, laundry cupboard with automatic washing machine and clothes airer.

The loft room has its own free view t.v. With PlayStation 3 and one controller.

The Annex is in a Rural location and has no shops within walking distance, just one pub. A car in my opinion is essential.

Extras: The annex has free Wi-Fi access. Being in the country the signal can be intermittent depending on weather but we have installed boosters to help this.

A travel cot & High Chair are available on request. Please request when booking. There are children's books, board games, dvds, cd's and there's a Playstation 3 with one controller and a few games of various ages in the annex.

Pets are welcome at the property and there is a charge for this - dogs £40 per week.

The deposit for the annexe is normally £100 but if pets are in the property this may change.

Change over days are flexible but you must check this with the owner.

Please note that the main owners house will be having a first floor extension starting in Oct 2016 therefore it will have scaffolding up but this will not effect any of the annexe, services or parking and there will be very minimal noise as there is no ground works being carried out.

A welcome pack is included with all 7 night bookings.

Why Katherine Gilbert chose Kent

This Annex is set behind my family home. Hawkenbury is a lovely quiet Hamlet village that is in the middle of the Kent countryside. There are two lovely villages with mainline train stations to London only 2 miles away. We are close to London (55 minutes by train) close to, Royal Tunbridge Wells, Canterbury, Bluewater shopping centre, Zoos, Leeds, Scotney, Hever Castles, Many National trust properties and for sightseeing this area is perfect. Many people come here to explore the garden of england and we now have an electric bike hire centre less than half a mile away so that you can hire bikes and visit the local villages and vineyards. We also get a lot of Geocachers that love to explore the area with approximately 3 Geo's less than a mile away, cyclists and tourists. The Annex is very private but still close enough to not feel completely cut off. In the evenings you can enjoy the peace of the countryside, from June onwards the calfs and cows actually put their head over the annex hedge to say hello .

What makes this cottage unique

Private, Self contained, peaceful, pretty and modern.

Rated 4* by Visit England. This annex is not let to anyone I am very careful to only let it to people I know will look after it enabling every stay to be as pleasant as the next.

Pets are allowed but there is a £40 fee per week.

Perfect little cottage for a small family

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at California Annex. Its a fantastic location, close to Leeds Castle and Bedgebury Forest, where we did mountain biking and tree-top adventure. The cottage is a high standard, the kitchen small but adequate for prepping simple meals and all the equipment you need. Kath left a very generous welcome basket - thank you!! Lovely views out the back over the fields, and a nice short walk to the local pub if you fancy a pint nearby. Thanks for a great long weekend.

Parisiens à Hawkenbury -California Annexe

  • 5 of 5

nous sommes tres bien accueilli par Katherine et sa petite famille, elle est toujours là pour nous renseigner et nous donner des information sur les cites touristiques de la région de Kent. La chambre est au premier un peu petite pour deux adults et deux enfants mais propre. Petite cuisine avec tous les ustensiles qu il faut pour cuisiner. Région calm à côté d'une ferme, le seul côté négatif est la route qui mène au cotage; elle

est étroite pas de trottoir et manque de lumière la nuit. Sinon rien à dire, à recommander vivementl!!!
