Refurbished in 2019, this cottage provides a special couple’s getaway in the glorious Kent countryside. Kick back, relax or head out and explore the many pubs, restaurants and local attractions nearby.

Set on a working farm, this quaint cottage offers a unique romantic getaway to Kent. Recently converted from a cow shed, this homely retreat is filled with country charm and character. Keep cosy and warm in the evenings by the wood burner and enjoy the fresh air in the morning with breakfast outside at the rear of the cottage. Your canine companion can meet the friendly neighbourhood labradors who share the garden. Located near the main road on the edge of the pretty village of Rolvenden, you have easy access to the interesting places and amenities beyond.

Wooden beams embedded into the fresh white walls, wrought iron details, and carefully thought out splashes of colour give this home a rustic yet stylish feel. Curl up on the comfy sofa or armchair after a day in the fresh air and warm your toes by the fire, with your canine companion nestled by the stone hearth. The compact kitchen fitted with pretty tiles allows you to whip up a romantic meal for two to enjoy at the pull-out dining table. Lovingly decorated, the bedrooms boast views of the garden, starting off your morning with a reminder of your tranquil surroundings.

There are a variety of pretty walks surrounding the cottage that take advantage of the peaceful countryside and the setting of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Visit the local village pub of Rolvenden for a meal or look around the beautiful National Trust properties nearby. Head further afield to Tenterden where you can explore the independent shops and tree-lined high street, or the medieval cobbled streets of Rye 10 miles away. The coast is within reach too: travel 20 miles to Hastings where you can have a stroll along the pebble beach, pier and prom.

A comfortable cottage with plenty of space and well planned layout. The hosts were superb and could not have done more to make our stay enjoyable and being dog lovers we had the added bonus of daily visits from their two labradors. Ideal location to explore the high weald of Kent.

Although 'compact and bijou' in its living area, The Cowshed is renovated to a high standard. Internally everything was spotlessly clean. An extremely comfortable bed, towels large and thick.
