To the west of the cottage you have stable type door giving access to a patio with beautiful scented Wisteria above (seasonal), on which to watch the sun go down. On the patio is a charcoal BBQ.

Located in one of the most beautiful, unspoilt and peaceful areas of mid Kent, Oak cottage provides an ideal base for anyone visiting Kent or London. The fields, woodlands and wildlife of the Landews Meadow Estate provide the most beautiful location, with the benefit of your own swimming lake. From the cottage you can walk for miles in woodland carpeted with bluebells (in April and May), to enjoy the countryside, or just sit and enjoy the tranquility of the private gardens and lake.

Challock is centrally located between Ashford, Canturbury and Faversham and from this position in the heart of the county you are within easy reach of all of Kent's attractions. Leeds Castle is described as the loveliest castle in the world and it is hard to disagree on a sunny summers day, it also has lots for the kids to do, adventure playground, maze and falconry, Dover and Heaver Castles are also within easy reach for a day trip, Canterbury Cathedral or the charming Cinque port towns provide fresh sea air and fish markets, or you can visit any of the many clean sandy beaches around the coast. One of our favorite days out is a trip on the miniature steam railway the RH&D railway which runs a scheduled service from Hythe to Dungeness, being pulled across the romney marsh by a scale steam locomotive is a great experience for little kids (and big kids).

The village of Challock has two pubs, one serving excellent food,also the barn shop in the village provides fresh Kent produce 6 days a week. In the village of Challock and on your doorstep other activities include, horse riding, cycling, gliding (the gliders fly right over the cottages providing a fantastic view of Kent) and the Beech Court Gardens & Tea rooms. For a trip to London, Ashford International station is only 6 miles away and the high speed link will have you in to St Pancras in 38 minutes, bookable in advance for as little as £19 per person.

You could not wish for a more beautiful centrally located base to either put your feet up and enjoy the tranquility or visit all that the Garden of England has to offer.

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.

“Very relaxing”

Reviewed 8 Sep 2014

Stayed in Oak cottage August bank holiday week and have to say it was very relaxing, Wendy & Nigel were there to meet us nad were very friendly and welcoming. Oak cottage is perfect to just chill and relax in. It is also very convenient to Ashford International (into London) plus Canterbury and the coast. There are lots of lovely drives and walks nearby. A very enjoyable and relaxing week.

“Fantastic spot - and so friendly”

Reviewed 16 Apr 2014

We stayed at Oak cottage for a few days and it really is a lovely place, down a quiet lane, in beautiful countryside. Nigel and Wendy who run it were really friendly and helpful, thank you very much!

“Charme british assuré. Accueil très sympathique”

Reviewed 26 Mar 2014

Nous avons adoré notre séjour. Nous sommes restés quelques jours avec nos 3 enfants. l'accueil est chaleureux, le cadre charmant et très reposant. So british !!! Nous sommes allés à Londres en train, c'est très facile ! Nous avons aussi profité du charme de la campagne anglaise. Repos et dépaysement garantis. Nous recommandons cette adresse et espérons pouvoir y retourner très prochainement. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié les courses faites par le propriétaire avant notre arrivée au magasin local. L'accueil est irréprochable et très soigné.

“Great base for exploring North Downs and East Kent”

Reviewed 20 Feb 2014

We had a lovely time. Our hosts were really friendly; arranging to get food in advance from the local barn shop was great. Both for convenience and quality. As it was February, and rather damp, I look forward to going back at a time when we can maybe enjoy some good weather and sit outside with a glass of wine on an evening. The cottage is secluded and peaceful, with great views.

“Lovely, idilic, and friendly.”

“Beautiful properties!”

Reviewed 7 May 2013

I had been planning a surprise weekend away for my husbands 30th birthday and came across this beautiful cottage! Myself and husband arrived on the Friday and was delighted with the small 2 bed cottage. It has everything you need for a relaxing weekend away, stunning gardens surround the properties and provide a gorgeous view from the bedrooms. The surprise for my husband was that our friends joined us for another 2 nights in the bigger cottage next door. This cottage was equally as lovely and had the added bonus of a secluded garden where we had a few bbq's and played table tennis and bowls! We all enjoyed a long walk through the fields and woodland areas which surrounded the cottages. Nigel and Wendy we're very welcoming and made our stay very comfortable. Not one of our party wanted to leave! We will definitely be returning for another stay! :)

“Peaceful, remote and friendly”

Reviewed 27 Sep 2012

Two of us stayed at Oak Cottage for two weeks whilst studying at ABDO College in Godmersham in September 2012 and have already booked for our next block in 2013. The cottage is absolutely gorgeous, the welcoming off Nigel and Wendy was amazingly friendly and we were made to feel right at home. Nigels directions to the cottage were invaluable! It is lovely to be surrounded by fields and animals. The cottage is remote and feels very safe and secure but is close to Ashford and Canterbury for anything you may need. It was a bit cold to go swimming in the swimming lake but we sat down dipping our feet in the relaxing atmophere. The cottage has everything you could want and is very comfortable. Our stay was fantastic and we can't wait to get down their again.

“a beautiful retreat we shall never forget”
