Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The cottage is in both a pretty rural location and a fantastic position in the middle of Kent to access the entire county using motorways & country lanes. It could be very difficult to find but the directions given by the owners, if followed, are spot on! The lovely village of Bearsted is within a 10 minute walk through protected woodland and boasts some very good eateries. The accommodation is very comfortable with all mod cons and offers a very relaxing decked balcony overlooking the pretty woodland. June 2012.
  2. Lovely property in the middle a National Trust woodland. Easy walk to shops and through the woodland to Bearsted Green, with 2 pubs a restuarant and local butcher. March 2012.
