Description from owner
The Duck House is a stunning two bedroom cottage in the charming and un-spoilt village of Cowden in Kent and is well placed for exploring the beautiful Kent and Sussex countryside or delving into local history.
If you are looking for an idyllic retreat in Rural England, that offers holiday accommodation of an extremely high standard, then The Duck House self catering cottage is for you.
The Duck House is found by meandering down a private lane and overlooks several ponds that teem with wildlife. The self catering cottage is on a quiet private lane that leads to a Manor House with large livery stables, where one can take riding lessons. The rural location is ideal for those who enjoy the outdoor life with direct access to 90 acres of woodland and an extensive network of bridle paths and walks.
The Sevenoaks District
The location, close to the borders of both Surrey and Sussex, the idyllic Kent countryside and everything that one would expect from a traditional English village is on the doorstep.
The Duck House, located only 45 minutes from central London, is in an area registered as being 'of outstanding natural beauty'. Many of the local gardens are regularly open to the public.
