Ideally situated on the edge of the pretty Kent village of Lamberhurst, this cute cottage surrounded by rolling green countryside is the perfect romantic retreat for two. Located in the owner’s grounds, it sleeps two people in one bedroom and welcomes one canine companion, making it the ideal accommodation choice for couples who want to escape the city and explore the peaceful Kent and Sussex countryside.

Step inside and you’ll find yourself in a welcoming hallway that leads to a bright and airy living room/kitchen/diner. The chic, compact kitchen is equipped with everything you need to prepare a romantic meal for two. Eat in the intimate dining area or step outside, light up the charcoal BBQ and dine alfresco in the garden. The country views from the garden are simply fabulous. After dinner, snuggle up on the sofa in the living area and catch up on your favourite TV shows before retiring to the lovely bedroom for a peaceful night’s sleep. In the morning, peek out of the bedroom window and you’ll be met with gorgeous country views.

Take a romantic stroll around the wooded estate at Scotney Castle (2.5 miles). There you’ll find a wonderful garden with a view of a 14th-century moated castle and a Victorian country mansion. The central feature is the fairy-tale ruin of Old Scotney Castle, which sits on an island on a small lake. There’s also a nice tearoom in a converted coach house. Alternatively, take a trip to the historic spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells (7.5 miles). There you can go shopping in the wonderfully classy Pantiles, enjoy lunch in a cool eatery, or take a tour of the area’s wineries.

Wonderful location for this pretty and comfortable cottage. Very friendly owners but not at all intrusive, the little house is tucked away and feels very private. Fantastic walks right from the front door and so much to see locally. Perfect for dog owners. We highly recommend.

Be aware that Hoghole Lane is narrow. Hope that you do not meet another motorist going the other way, and be prepared to back up if you do.

The cottage is in a beautiful location. A health issue meant we could not enjoy the many local walks. However there were so many NT properties, English Heritage properties and other properties within easy reach that we were kept very occupied. Would most certainly go there again.

Cottage was excellent, certainly value for money , lovely quite countryside, owls around at night calling, open fields too rear with views over countryside. Local village around a mile away, only minus are the single track roads to property, which were not helped with a local road being closed, so vehicles used the single lane roads as a bypass. SoRead moreme of the van drivers not very polite and not very thoughtful when trying too pass on the narrow road, expected you to give way. But well worth it. Hide

The cottage was very warm and comfortable, quiet and peaceful. There is no mobile signal and the Wi-Fi/internet is very spasmodic so don't expect to watch a film on your iPad.
