Ideal location to explore the area

Tucked away along a country lane and within the grounds of a Kentish fruit farm is this thoughtfully converted barn. Enjoy your own slice of the ’Garden of England’ as the detached barn overlooks its very own orchard! The farm offers excellent walks and the fields border the estuary where guests can bring their own rod for fishing (by arrangement with owner). There is a local golf course where players and their families can use the club house restaurant and heated indoor swimming pool. For the cycling enthusiast there are several cycle routes. The little village of Upchurch with a corner shop and pub is under a mile’s stroll and steeped in history, originally settled by the Romans, there is a haul of Roman coins from here on display in the British Museum in London, and Sir Francis Drake’s father was vicar at the local church! Further afield visit Rochester referred to as ’The city of great expectations’ because of its associations with Charles Dickens and a festival celebrates this in the summer and at Christmas. Visit Rochester and Upnor Castles, the historic Chatham Dockyard, Cobham Hall dating from 1584 or Kent Life Farm where you can feed the animals or children can let off steam in an indoor soft play barn or outdoor adventure area. 35 minutes’ drive to the Cathedral City of Canterbury with its cobbled streets and quaint shops. 50 minutes’ drive and easy access to the channel tunnel and Dover Port. Good rail connections to London. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    We had an extended stay at Plovers Rest in between moving houses and I don't think we could have found a better place if we searched the net for a year! Phillip and Judy are the perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. A beautifully quiet location, with a 10 minute stroll to the sea wall and just a mile from Upchurch with its excellent co-op store and post office. If you need to chill out, this is the place!

    We stayed here for an extended period in between moving houses. Phillip and Judy could not be more welcoming and helpful during a quite stressful time for us. We have stayed in many holiday cottages during our 44 years of marriage and none of them come close to Plovers Rest. In a word, perfect.

    What a lovely property. We really enjoyed our stay. It was so well equipped and the garden area was delightful. The owners were so friendly & helpful, waiting at the property when we arrived in case our grocery delivery turned up before we did and also calling round mid week to check that everything was OK. We really appreciated the generous goodies left for us to enjoy. Have stayed in a good number of self catering properties over many years and this was definitely one of the very best. We shall certainly return!

    What a superb cottage. Spotlessly clean with an attention to detail providing everything we needed. Kind, attentive owners. Quiet and peaceful location surrounded by a pear orchard and countryside. Would not hesitate to recommend this property.

    A lovely place to stay and the host Phil and Judy were very friendly obliging and helpful kept out of the way but were there if and when you needed them the cottage was immaculate clean a well laid out arrival package for us to start our holiday off being there twice. If went back down there again would have no qualms about staying there again
