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.

    We had such a fantastic stay at this cottage. It had everything that you would need and more. The hosts were so nice and attentive to checking everything was okay and if anything was needed we could contact them. The place was so clean and tidy I was actually quite shocked as you can normally find something. Hot tub was a bonus which we did use twice even with the cold weather but once you were in, oh wow! It was lovely. The location is perfect if you want something somewhere quiet and out of the way away from cities etc. We will definitely be going back next year but for the summer with others and stay in one of the other cottages. Thank you again.

    Quite simply in terms of standards, value for money and quality this is by far the best accommodation I’ve ever stayed in. From the cleanliness, to the warm welcome to how every single detail is thought of. The attention to detail surpasses every hotel we’ve stayed in. The bed was amazing, noise levels parred silence, the local biscuits were a nice touch along with fruit, tea bags, coffee, a pint of milk, washing tablets... the list really does go on. We will make every effort to return. Just simply amazing. A rating of 10 doesn’t give justification of how much we enjoyed it! Thank you.

    We had the most amazing weekend at the cottage. Warm and very welcoming, clean and extremely relaxing!! Everything we expected and more. Will most definitely be back for another stay! Loved the little touches of milk in the fridge, biscuits/fresh apples, and all the local info etc.. we already had plans but was nice to know what else was around, and coming back to the hot tub with those views - perfect! Also had supper at the local pub on the first night which is also highly recommended!

    Accommodation had the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in! Great location for trips to the coast and we took a day trip to Paris as well. The Battle of Britain memorial is worth a visit. Everything has been catered for by the owners, would recommend to anyone.

    The cottage was really nicely finished and the little extras provided, such as a small bottle of milk, biscuits etc gave us less to worry about as soon as we arrived so we could settle in. We was provided with a travel cot for our baby but had no covers for it so we had to go out to get some. However that is possibly the only criticism of our stay. The scenery was beautiful and the staff where really friendly. Would definitely stay again.

    Absolutely beautiful location and setting, we had the perfect week with our 4 month old daughter. Loved the cottage and will return again. Only slight comment is we’re not sure the hot tub was cleaned while we were there as we had to wipe away some sludge from the water level.

    My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful weekend in saddlers cottage, the bonus being we could take our beloved dog and enjoy lots of amazing walks. The location is beautiful, you can't beat watching the sun set over the fields whilst in the hot tub. The cottage itself was spotless and had everything you would need, we even had a little welcome package of milk, biscuits and fresh eggs which was a lovely touch. We would love to come back. Thank you for a lovely stay

    Lovely view of sunset and stars from hot tub as well as racing rabbits and snorting horses. Beautiful romantic break.
