Description from owner

Description

Set in the heart of a busy working fruit farm are two beautifully converted semi-detached cottages. The farm originally produced apples and pears (now growing soft fruits in poly tunnels) and the first cottage - D'Arcy Spice - is named after a lovely old variety of apple. It has a wonderful big open plan living area just perfect for relaxing and enjoying the tranquil setting or having fun family meals. The owners live nearby where they keep their gorgeous South American Paso Fino horses and are happy for you to visit. Being located in the heart of Kent - there are a myriad of attractions all within easy access, the nearby village - with three pubs! - is just at the top of the hill. Whether you fancy a game of golf, visiting National Trust properties, a day at the beach, major retail therapy or a trip to the market town of Tenterden with its steam railway, a day trip to France or London (less than an hour away from a nearby station) or just great walks along the Greensand Way - D'Arcy

South East England

Whether you are looking for relaxation and the chance to unwind or for something more active including great hand's on fun for the younger family members then Kent is the place for you. With many award winning attractions featured together with the best known places to visit and many smaller less well known attractions 'our little gems' - the choice is yours.

Choose from enchanting gardens, historic houses, castles,castle ruins, cathedrals and country churches, fascinating museums, animal parks, steam trains, amazing maritime heritage and much more including active fun, Kent, the Garden of England has something for everybody.

With castles and historic houses everywhere. From Geoffrey Chaucer's colourful characters heading to the shrine of Thomas Becket at Canterbury Cathedral to Charles Dickens' beloved Rochester , Kent has been an inspiration for the world's greatest writers. You can get an insight into the life and works of these two great authors at numerous attractions across the cathedral cities. It's hard to know where to start when exploring Kent's heritage. Right on your doorstep only a few miles away is Leeds Castle, which boasts to be 'The loveliest castle in the world'

We suggest making your own pilgrimage to the shrine of St. Thomas Becket in Canterbury Cathedral before visiting England's second-oldest cathedral at Rochester which is also home to a well-preserved Norman castle. And on the subject of castles, King Henry II's Dover Castle is a must-see.

The Turner Contemporary in Margate celebrates the much-loved painter's association with the town by showcasing an impressive collection of historical and contemporary art.. And why not take a boat along the river from Maidstone to the Museum of Kent Life , a fantastic open-air historical experience.

If you like castles and cathedrals, Kent is blessed with Hever , Dover, Rochester and Leeds , whereas the cathedrals at Rochester and Canterbury are simply awe-inspiring. Or for something a little different, Dungeness has the fascinating and slightly odd combination of nuclear power stations, fishermen's huts, miniature railway and lighthouse as well as nature reserves.

To experience the finest ingredients then visit the surrounding farmer's markets they are full of inspirational local produce as well. A glass of sparkling wine at Tenterden Vineyard or a pint at Britain's oldest brewer, Shepherd Neame.

If you want it, then Kent most definitely has it. For antiques head to the historic town of Royal Tunbridge Wells a favourite of Queen Victoria, for hidden gems loose yourself in one of Canterbury's many side streets and for a book on any subject imaginable 'Baggins Book Bazaar' in Rochester is the country's largest second-hand bookshop. And if you still haven't found what you're looking for then Bluewater has an incredible 330 plus stores, 40 cafes and returants and a 13 screen cinema.

Thrill-seeking youngsters are spoilt for choice in Kent. They can jump onboard the Great Expectations Boat Ride at Dickens World , drive a real JCB at Diggerland and even watch a battle or explore the War time tunnels at Dover Castle.

Experience a little piece of Africa where you least expect it, join a safari at Port Lympne where more than a 1,000 animals roam free including elephants and giraffes.
