Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


Dairy Cottage nestles in the heart of the Kent countryside and boasts a therapeutic hot tub for total relaxation.

These delightful, single-storey cottages are located on the outskirts of Alkham, a quaint countryside village in Kent. Consisting of three cottages, Horseshoe Cottage (ref UKC410), Dairy Cottage (ref UKC409) and Saddler’s Cottage (ref UKC408), this is a great location for families and friends to enjoy a fun filled holiday in the Kentish country. Decorated and furnished to a good standard, all the cottages feature Wi-Fi, comfortable living accommodation and each cottage has an enclosed, private garden with patio. Saddlers Cottage and Dairy Cottage also have the additional benefit of hot tubs to enjoy all year round.
There is a vast array of walks and cycling routes around the area, guests are welcome to bring bikes and store them in the cycle storage area. Attractions in Kent include the famous city of Canterbury, boasting a stunning cathedral, dominant city walls, boutique shops, bars and restaurants. Take a ferry trip over to France from Dover to Calais, or by train from Ashford through the Channel Tunnel, and enjoy sightseeing. Dover Castle sits proudly overlooking the town and is well worth a visit. Known as the ‘Key to England’, the castle boasts 2000 years of history and includes a Roman lighthouse, Saxon church and a Norman keep. Travel up the coast to the fishing town of Deal and sample fish and chips on the promenade or enjoy a stroll at Viking Bay in Broadstairs. Beach 4 miles. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    Brilliant time had by all! Great, clean, well-equipped, warm cottage with fantastic hot tub which we all loved. Great base for day trips and so much to do and see in the area. Great walks for the dog. Really loved getting to know this part of Kent. Thanks so much. Just what the Doctor ordered.

    Fantastic cottage. The decor and time that has gone into making this place so beautiful can really be seen. Hot tub was great and the underfloor heating much appreciated! We had a wonderful time here and would not hesitate to visit again. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

    Had a lovely time at the Dairy Cottage. On a lovely farm, with some wonderful views. Cottage was well designed and decorated, very clean and made to feel very welcome by owners. Were left alone all weekend, but owners were available if we needed them!

    Cottage was lovely, clean and well equipped. Home from home feeling. Planned to do more but due to the snow was restricted. We would like to visit again soon. Hot tub lovely addition to admire the view.

    Beautifully presented cottage in the countryside, we stayed on new years eve to get away with our 2 dogs as they are terrified of fireworks. What a lovely, peaceful new years! The cottage has everything you could need, Mark and Sue are extremely helpful but not intrusive at all. Beds and sofa very comfy, with super soft blankets provided to snuggle up with. Underfloor heating was a godsend for the cold weather! The garden and hot tub are great (although it did rain non-stop the whole time we there which was unfortunate!) Local amenities are limited but that is what we were looking for - somewhere away from towns/fireworks. Would definitely return, maybe for next new years eve! :)

    We loved our time at Dairy Cottage. It had everything you would want, it was clean, tidy and someone has obviously gone to a lot of effort to make it so. The hot tub was great, especially under clear night skies with beer in hand and morning conversations with the neighbouring horses was novel. All local amenities were close by but not too close which made it an excellent location for a short break away from it all.

    Had a fantastic stay at this great well equipped cottage. The hot tub was an added bonus which was fab looking over the open fields. Would definitely recommend to friends and family and we will be returning.

    Could not have asked for a better place to stay and spend my 50th Birthday. Well equipped and spotlessly clean.
