This lovingly decorated cottage offers a wonderful escape to the country and is ideally located for couples and families wanting to head out and explore the abundance of local attractions.

If you imagine a cottage escape in Kent, the very image of this property may spring to mind. Located in the heart of the romantic village of Goudhurst, which itself sits in the lush Kentish countryside, this traditional country home is the perfect place for you and five of your closest companions to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Enter the property through a fairytale wooden door, into a courtyard and the main house. Inside, the heart of the home is the large, open-plan living area. There is a raised, rustic kitchen, a comfy sitting area, and a dining table fit for a holiday feast, all ingeniously renovated around the period features of the building, including exposed beams and brickwork. A set of stairs leads to a snug with a cosy wood burner for those wishing to delay bedtime, and then on into the first of the bedrooms, a bunk bedroom and a double, each with lovely views of the garden. Head outside for your secret third bedroom, a comfortable pull-out bed in the charming en-suite summer house that sits at the end of the pebbled courtyard. A garden weaves around the outside buildings (including a laundry room) and offers plenty of little places to sit, eat and relish the weather.

You probably won't be eager to leave this country palace, but there's plenty to do in the open air nearby. Head to Sissinghurst Castle, a pretty 6-mile journey away, and explore the extraordinary gardens where Vita Sackville-West, the woman who inspired Virginia Woolf's Orlando, lived and worked. Or, do a crawl of the area's vineyards. The Hush Heath Estate is 5 miles away and the Biddenden Vineyard is 14.5 miles away near the vibrant town of Tenterden.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • Sleeps 4+2 on the sofa bed in the summer house with en-suite.
  • 2 bedrooms – 1 double and 1 bunk bedroom
  • 1 shower room, 1 en-suite shower room and 1 separate WC
  • Electric Aga, dishwasher, fridge and Nespresso coffee machine
  • Utility room with washing machine, freezer and a large trough-style sink
  • Wood burner (first basket of logs included)
  • Wi-Fi included
  • 2 dogs welcome
  • Pubs, shops and restaurant within walking distance
  • Storage for bikes
  • Smart TV in lounge
  • Restricted head height in places adds to the character of this cottage
  • Private off-road parking for 1 car, additional roadside parking available
  • The driveway to the cottage is quite narrow and may not be suitable for large 4x4 cars

Cannot rate this lovely cottage highly enough- quirky, full or character and well looked after. Well equipped kitchen, lovely snug with open fire, gorgeous garden. As a family (including dog) we all felt comfortable and had memorable family time. Wished we could have stayed longer.

March Cottage is a quirky, exceptionally well equipped and very cozy cottage, tucked away in the village. This did make it a little difficult to find in the dark and pouring rain.

Excellent holiday cottage. The only negative is the parking as only a small or mid sized car can park on site. Not a big problem as free public parking is just round the corner.

What a wonderful quirky place March cottage is. Great location (although tricky to find and parking at the house not for the faint hearted or big cars). The interiors are all beautiful and lots of small details have been thought of to make this a more homely place than lots of rental properties. Would highly recommend a stay here.

The cottage is so cute and welcoming. The stairs are very steep, so probably not best for people with mobility issues, however the stairs form part of the wonderful character of this property.
