The Kent 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.

"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 !

"A fantastic first meeting with the Garden of England"
A superb cottage in the middle of meadows, forests, towns, castles,....
Everything you need is there in the cottage. There's a foodshop is nearby: the barn shop and in a 15-minute drive you have supermarkets,... Nice towns to vist. Fantastics woods to go walking, biking,...
Even with the bad weather ( snow, rain) there's plenty to do.
Chatham Dockyards is fantastic to vist for all ages.
Next year we'll surely go back.
Very friendly owners. We would recommend to everybody!
Nigel sends loads of informations by mail whiwh is very helpfull to plan your trip.
