The South East England region
Known as the Garden of England this area is famous for growing Hops and apples. The Estate was originally a hop farm. Attractions in Kent include the beautiful castle of Leeds, Hever and Dover. Some fantastic beeches are accessed along the coast between Rye and Hythe. The quaint Cinque Port towns provide an enjoyable day out by the sea and the historic Dock yards at Chatham are great for old and young alike. The world famous cathedral at Canterbury and punting on the river Stour are not to be missed.
Challock provides two pubs, one serving excellent food 7 days a week and a barn shop providing local Kent produce. The towns of Canterbury, Ashford and Faversham are within easy reach by car. Challock is a rural community with horse ridding, walking and cycling in some of Kent's most beautiful countryside including the amazing Kings wood. Also available in the village is the Kent Gliding club where you can book a passenger ride to soar high above your accommodation and see all across Kent on a clear day. The Beech Court Tea Rooms and gardens are also worth a visit.

Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen. Das Haus ist großzügig und nett eingerichtet. Auch der kleine See ist super. Es ist allerdings ein bisschen ab vom Schuss. Ohne Auto geht da gar nichts.… More

"Tranquil location with lots of space"
We really enjoyed our stay at Hop Cottage. Nigel and Wendy made everything perfect and we wanted for nothing, even providing us with yummy duck eggs! The views from the conservatory are beautiful and we spent a gorgeous evening by the lake with a few glasses of bubbly.
We visited Chapel Down winery during the day on Saturday and went for a night out in Canterbury, both in easy reach of Hop Cottage . We can't wait to come back next year!

"une belle maison dans un beau paysage"
Nous sommes partis à 4 adultes et 4 enfants dont un bébé.
The property is very cute: lot of flowers, the garden is very well-kept. It's possible to eat outside ( garden furniture, barbecue). La maison est située en pleine nature, on peut voir beaucoup d'animaux : chevaux, faisans, canards...). La location est très bien équipée (four, four à micro-onde, lave-vaiselle, il n'est pas nécessaire d'emmener ses draps et ses serviettes de bain. Une prise Iphone bien pratique quand on est français à cause des prises! Les propriétaires sont très sympathiques. Avant de partir, ils nous ont envoyé un mail avec toutes les visites à faire ainsi qu'une description détaillée de la route. La location est très bien située: à 20 minutes de Canterbury, à 20 minutes de Leeds Castle (le plus château du monde !)
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour !

Even with the bad weather ( snow, rain) there's plenty to do.

"Relaxing and highly interesting stay in the heart of Kent"
Our vacation at the Hop Cottage Landews Meadow in October 2012 started with a nice hallo by Wendy and Nigel. We entered the lovely equipped wonderful cottage. A tasty cake was standing on the dining room table.
The situation of the house could not have been better. The surroundings were first-class and we have enjoyed a nice rest which never would have been equal relaxing at our home.
Already at the evening of our arrival day we went to Canterbury and strolled through the snug lanes and enjoyed the impressions. We later also visited the cathedral. This is really a very impressive building together with all its history. If you travel around in Kent, it is to be recommended to visit the Historic Dock Yards. We could view a submarine, a warship, the shipyard were the Victory, Nelsons ship, was built and the historic ropery. Honestly the guide at the ropery was really extraordinary.
We have gone to see a lot from south east England. To walk about the White Cliffs of Dover was exciting and thrilling.
If you are in Kent do not forget to visit Leeds Castle a nicer castle than this, nobody of us had ever seen before.
We have visited many places; we purchased at Sainsbury's and strolled through the wide area of the Outlet Center of Ashford.
Nevertheless, a highlight was the ride with Teddy and Jasper. It has given pleasure again to be able to do horse riding and even the weather has joined in perfectly. Both horses have properly become dear to us.
Hop Cottage Landews Meadow, located in the heart of Kent is greatly suitable to stay central and reach out exciting targets in short times. Many thanks for everything! The vacation was wonderful, witty, interesting and thrilling.
Thank you for choosing to stay at Landews Meadow and for the lovely review you have left, it is very rewarding for us to know that the cottage and location were to your liking. It was a pleasure to meet you and your family, we enjoyed leading you through the woods and fields on horse back and we hope in future to add some more animals to our menagerie for the enjoyment of our guests. We were very glad to give you your first experience of riding a horse and to get your daughter back in the saddle, we would love to see the pictures you took.
Thank you again for your very kind review, do visit again in the future.
Nigel and Wendy
