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.

This recently converted to a high specification former cow shed is now a quaint country cottage situated on a working farm and conveniently located on the main road on the edge of the village of Rolvenden with easy access to local bus routes and the wider area beyond. This stunning pocket of the Kent countryside is home to many quaint villages where independent cafes, restaurants and antiques shops can be found. For those looking to soak up a bit of local culture during their stay, nearby Sissinghurst Castle and Gardens and Great Dixter House and Gardens are both well worth a visit. When not exploring the many footpaths that forge the rolling countryside, guests can head into nearby Tenterden and browse the wide range of independent shops or enjoy a delicious meal at the village pub in Rolvenden. A small courtyard brings you to a charming front door.

Light the wood burner and curl up on the comfy sofa or the armchair and enjoy watching a movie on the Smart TV/DVD. The dining table and chairs makes for a delightful area in which to enjoy romantic meals which have been whipped up in the bespoke, well-equipped kitchen.

We loved our break in The Cow Shed. Its in a lovely location with great dog walks all around, and is an easy drive to Rye and Tenterden, where you can find more restaurants and shops. We had a nice meal at The Bull in the local village, and the little local shop has a good range of products. We found the cottage to be cosy and comfy, especially theRead more lovely bed, and had the added bonus of the gorgeous Tiggy and Scamp to keep us company. Hide

The cottage was fantastic, it was snug, warm and comfortable- very home from home. Great owners Deborah and Dan, who offered good advice and walking routes in the area. Ideally situated for getting to the coast as well as the countryside. Special mention for the great shower and really comfy bed. Would definitely go back.
