The South East England region
Kent is known as "The Garden of England" with its winding lanes past lavender fields, orchards, vineyards and oast houses.
Be enriched by England's oldest county, alive with its exciting past: visiting Canterbury with Chaucer's pilgrims and Rochester with Dickens, following the maritime adventures that have shaped Kent from Roman invasion to World War II. Quintessential England. But also bang up to date with leading-edge galleries and theatre, Michelin-starred dining and entertaining nightlife giving you so many things to do.
Some outstanding attractions within a few miles include the National Trust properties of Sissinghurst Castle with its renowned gardens, Bodiam Castle, the nearby Scotney Castle and the ruins of Bayham Abbey. Slightly further are the Batemans (one time home of Rudyard Kipling), Ightham Moat, Penshurst Place and Great Dixter. The nearest seaside resort is Hasting with the smugglers town of Rye within 40 minutes and the Spa town of Tunbridge Wells is 12 miles to the West offering excellent shops and restaurants, a cinema and bowling alley.
There is sailing, wind surfing, fly-fishing and walking at Bewl Water reservoir, for children Drusillas Country Park, Runaround (Tunbridge Wells), Hop Farm offering children's activities, Rare Breeds Centre, and three Steam railways including the Spa Valley Railway (from Tunbridge Wells).
The village of Marden is eight miles (13km) from the county town of Maidstone. The parish church was built at the end of the 12th century. Marden is in the middle of the rich farmland of the weald, and has many orchards, oast houses and period buildings surrounding the village.
The rural village has a few shops and amenities including, hairdressers, barbers, general stores, post office, country pubs, butchers, chemist, bakery, several restaurants and take-aways.

"Nice cottage. Warm welcome. Great location."
Nice cottage wih good facilities. Owners are welcoming and very helpful if you need anything. We enjoyed the fresh eggs for breakfast and the free tickets to Leeds Castle.
The cottage is in a great location for visiting Kent and London. The train station is an easy walk away, so have options of both car and train for getting around.
In Marden itself, we recommend eating at the Taj of Kent and eating/drinking at the Unicorn pub, both of which are child friendly.

"Well equipped, lovely stay with a great garden in a quiet environment"
This cosy home is very well located to visit Kent. Many points of interest are easily reached from here. Train station, small shop, restaurants, ... at walking distance.
In the cottage you find anything you need, and when the weather is fine there is a great garden too at your disposal! The chickens and ducks made our breakfast very tastefull with their fresh eggs...
The owners (who live next door) are always at your disposal and offer a lot of information about things to do and see; and many brochures are in the cottage available.
Another very nice experience was the free entrance tickets that we received for Leeds Castle.
We brought our own bicycles and enjoyed the quiet roads. We made a trip to Goudhurst, Scotney Castle Gardens, and to Royal Tunbridge Wells.
Excursions we made by car :
- Leeds Castle
- Battle - Rye and an afternoon at the seaside in Camber Sands
We had a wonderful time here and would surely recommend this location to stay at!

Cottage was lovely,everything you would need,but
The master bedroom was below owner house
and we never sleep the week we were there.on the wednesday I had enough and husband spoke to owner .noise was a bit less .If it was not the fact that we had pre booked war and peace tickets and a lot of money .we would have just came home.if it was not for that we would use this cottage as near hop farm.

"Home away from home"
A late review but non the less a positive one:-)
We had a great time in this cottage. The cottage itself was fully equipped, nicely decorated and more than your money's worth. The owners Saff and Nishi were super friendly and gave us some ideas for our sightseeing trip! Kent is a lovely area with friendly and lovely villages as well as loads of shopping centers and outlet centers. Close to the grand design eco house, Leeds Castle (thank you for your advice on these 2 visits, Noshi) which was interesting. All in all we had a wonderful time in a wonderful cottage with lovely hosts that had the thin line of privacy and friendliness down to a fine art.
