Country Cottages in Kent

It seems that around every corner something is growing in Kent.

You're never far from the fields of flowers that carpet the countryside with a profusion of colour, the precise rows of fruit trees disappearing over the horizon, or the clusters of vineyards, producing bottles of wine that surpass their French counterparts in quality. And not forgetting the 3,000 acres of hops that have been such a feature of Kent since the 16th century.

If you prefer your nature a little less cultivated then Kent is also the place for you, with two AONBs (Kent Downs and High Weald), the RSPB reserves of Cliffe Pools, Elmley Marshes and Dungeness, a dozen Country Parks and over 60 nature reserves run by the Kent Wildlife Trust.

Quintessential English Countryside Retreats

There's plenty to choose from when it comes to finding the right cottage for your countryside holiday in Kent. Our secluded wooden clad cottages surrounded by open pastures and ancient woodland are perfect for 2 and ideal for walkers and cyclers alike, or go all out and book into one of our superb farmhouses, or a Kent Oast House, with beautiful gardens for all your family and friends to enjoy.

Local's Tip

Kent is bursting with fantastic places to enjoy the county's finest local produce; here are a few places you ought to try. The Milk House in Sissinghurst is an award winning village pub offering exquisite seasonal dishes with the addition of a traditional wood fired pizza oven in the garden for summer feasting. When staying in and around the picturesque village of Chilham, a meal at The Woolpack Inn is a must, especially when there is a need for great homely cooking. Should cocktails in the champagne bar, followed by sensational fine dining be the order of the day, then you must pay a visit to Hengist Resturant in Aylesford. Sometimes a cream tea is all one needs, and you can enjoy it in style at Chilston Park Hotel.

Still need persuading?

Julius Caesar once declared "Of all the British tribes, by far the most civilised are they who dwell in Kent" - we certainly wouldn't argue against that! So start your Kent country cottage holiday search now and choose from the ever-growing portfolio that we've personally selected for your enjoyment.
