We spent an excellent time in this lovely cottage in Kent for a week in August. The host Karen, who lives near by the cottage, was very kind and helped us a lot.

Beautiful walks start from the cottage. Also in less than an hour by car you can reach beautiful places like Canterbury or Brighton. Around there are interesting restaurants of English, French and mix food and nice pubs. We hope to return soon. Hide

Perfect midweek break, located centrally for several fabulous historic gardens we wanted to visit. This is a stunning, simple but modern cottage with two bedrooms that each have an en-suite toilet cleverly connecting to a shared shower; fully equipped kitchen diner and lovely spacious sitting room. There's a small patio with gorgeous views across Read morethe garden, and parking outside. The owner thoughtfully provided some basic provisions: bread, butter, eggs, milk etc. and made contact the day we arrived. The owner has written a very useful house guide and made some good recommendations for local shops, vineyards, restaurants and attractions to visit. This cottage is perfectly located for visiting properties such as Chartwell House, Sissinghurst Castle, Great Dixter, Bateman's, Pashley Manor, Hever Castle and Sarah Raven's Cutting Garden. The maximum distance was about 40 minutes drive time to the furthest we visited... are there are so many more to see! Hide

Little Bourne is a delightful property in a beautiful rural location. Tucked away between river and woodlands, this is a real surprise, being only a 5 minute drive from Tonbridge, and close to the A21.
