Ideal for both couples and families, this converted farm building has been beautifully transformed into a light and airy cottage offering a tranquil getaway in idyllic rural surroundings.

Situated only a mile outside the pretty village of Headcorn, this cosy cottage occupies a stunning pocket of the Kentish countryside. It’s within easy reach of many local attractions such as the Big Cat Sanctuary (0.6 miles), Leeds Castle (8.7 miles), Biddenden Vineyard (6.4 miles) and Sissinghurst Castle (7.6 miles), plus you’ll also find plenty of quaint villages and market towns nearby with no shortage of independent cafes, restaurants and antique shops. The village of Headcorn itself boasts a variety of independent shops, local butchers and a traditional pub. For those who like the great outdoors, there are some fantastic walks to nearby villages which can be finished with a stop at the local pub for a spot of refreshment. Although set on the grounds of a working kennels and cattery, you will feel like you have the entire place to yourselves.

Enter the cottage through the front door and into the spacious hallway, where there is ample space for dropping off shoes and coats. Head on through into the light and spacious open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, which has views over the courtyard garden. The lounge area has two comfy sofas and a Smart TV with access to Netflix and Amazon Prime. The kitchen area has all the equipment you would expect, including an electric oven and hob, dishwasher, microwave, and fridge with ice compartment. Whip up a delicious meal before sitting down to dine at the table with seating for all. Just off the open-plan area are the three bedrooms: two king-size bedrooms and a twin room, and there is also a fully accessible wet room with shower and WC.

Bi-folding doors in the lounge lead out to a patio area with a patio table and chairs, gas BBQ and a hot tub – just perfect for enjoying a glass of fizz and a spot of stargazing on a clear night. The property also sits in its own securely fenced acre of paddock, so dogs can enjoy the freedom to play.

Amy made us feel really welcome on arrival and let us know we could call her if needed anything. Hot tub was fab and chemicals checked for us every morning - loads of towels and robes and lots of hot water in shower etc. Kitchen really well equipped including dishwasher and BBQ. Huge Tv and very comfy new recliner sofa - beds also comfortable.

Great place to stay for a quiet get away. We have three dogs so having access to a large and secure outdoor space was amazing. The property had lots of towels, bowls and bags etc if we needed them for the dogs too. The property was large and perfect for bigger groups and having access to a hot tub was great fun! The host was friendly and helpful thRead moreroughout our stay. The main road didnt feel safe to walk the dogs along, so I would recommend a car if you plan to go on dog walks. Hide

Wonderful. Would highly recommend. We stayed for two nights with friends, our dogs and children. To let them all run free was fantastic and to not have to worry about any of them escaping was so relaxing. The kids just loved it especially exploring the field and the simple thing of finding twigs to help make a fire in the provided firepit. We lovedRead more the hot tub, had a bbq and the beds are super comfy. Five star accommodation. Thank you. Hide

Had a fantastic stay here! The accomodation was perfect for our needs, we had 4 dogs with us and so the enclosed paddock was an absolute god send as well as the large area for parking. Kitchen had everything needed for the weekend and the hot tub was lovely. Only downside was the lack of recycling bins/food compost on site, it felt very environmentRead moreally unfriendly, putting everything into a black bag for the bin. Other than that, we would absolutely stay here again! location is beautiful also. Hide

We had a lovely stay and was really impressed by the quality of the building and appliances. It was nice and private with a fence and the hot tub and gas bbq were great fun. Our stay was over too quickly and we can't wait to come back.
