Set on the owner’s working fruit farm, these three terraced holiday cottages, each with their own enclosed area of garden, offer the perfect base for exploring the natural beauty of this area. With views across the Northward Hill RSPB Nature Reserve, a converted barn has been reborn as charming cottages with 120 acres of farmland adjacent to the heronry, the largest in the UK. You may also be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the local barn owls, buzzards, egrets and the other abundant wildlife. In a quiet rural location yet only 8 miles from Rochester with a wide range of amenities, famous for its connections with Charles Dickens, or the cathedral city of Canterbury. The village of High Halstow is approximately 2 miles away and has a pub serving food, post office and grocery store. A perfect base for exploring Kent, the Garden of England and reaching London from Ebbsfleet for the high speed link. Ideal as a base for The O2, Greenwich Park, Westfield and Bluewater Shopping Centre. Golf nearby, varied cycle routes and fishing for trout in the owner’s reservoir (additional charge applies). There are free range chickens, geese and ducks on-site and opportunities to enjoy the blossoms and sample the fruits in season. The farm supplies high class fruit to many of the top restaurants in the area as well as the quality retailers and supermarkets. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

Perfect location for walking and beautiful sunsets. Just a couple of snagging issues, the patio doors need sorting - not easy to open and gapping at the bottom. Patio furniture needs replacing- two broken chairs and table unstable. Despite this would definitely book again.

We needed somewhere to stay for my friends wedding. This was perfect. Would recommend.

Lovely location. A lot of thought was obviously put in to this property when it was developed but there are a few minor bits of maintenance required to bring it back up to what it should be. A few people have commented on the draught that comes in through the patio doors when the wind is in the wrong direction - we ended up having to move a sofa in front of the doors and curtains to try to remedy this. The shower in the ensuite needs attention as you can't turn the temperature down enough for comfort and the shower in the main bathroom was difficult to set the temperature. We know that most people who stay here probably eat out but we did eat in and the bread knife wasn't particularly sharp - my friend is a cook and she wasn't very happy with it. As I said, just a few minor maintenance issues which could change a good review into an excellent one.
