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.

The cart shed is reasonably priced and is set on a fruit farm in a very rural area. It has a good kitchen area and cooking equipment and facilities and good dining areas both indoors and in the garden. A car is essential to be able to visit the area and for fetching groceries.

Lovely cottage, well equipped. Shower in en-suite of main bedroom, wasn't working properly and you couldn't turn the temperature down, hence very hot showers. Got out to a lot of different places so was a lovely quiet base.

Nice comfortable property in a very isolated rural spot with amazing views towards London. Owners friendly and very helpful. A pub and a shop in next village but that's it! Ideal for easy walks to the Thames and RSPB bird reserves very close but we chose the wrong time of the year for birding! We did pick a great time for foraging - I've never seen so many blackberries!
