Howes Cottage

Who says four legged family members can’t be part of the break? With Bedgebury Pinetum and Bewl Water just down the road from this little gem there’s no way you’d want to leave Rover and Spot at the kennels. Pair white picket fences with acres of surrounding woodland paths for walks to make tails wag and this oh-so-cute country cottage is the perfect spot for dog lovers.


The Milking Parlour

If your spring break dreams include a rural escape and that coveted peace and quiet, the stylish Milking Parlour’s location on a small working farm is just the thing.  A short drive from the beautiful Sissinghurst Castle and Hever Castle, this getaway offers gorgeous gardens galore, and a glass of sparkling wine at local vineyards Biddenden, Hush Heath and Chapel Down offers the only way to bid farewell to dry January and hello to spring!

The Snuggery

Vaulted ceilings, pick-your-own vegetable patches and village pubs, this hideaway in Rochester is straight off the pages of Country Living magazine. While links to London and the café culture and historic streets of Rochester are just minutes away, the Snuggery offers tucked away bliss in the hamlet of Upper Bush set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.


The Old Schoolroom

This beautifully converted Victorian schoolroom rests right in the centre of Waltham, offering a cosy cottage feel high up on the Kent Downs. Great for a family of four with a dog, the surrounding area is perfect walking territory with peaceful countryside and the village pub just a short walk away, but if you’re in search of chic eateries and independent shopping, the cathedral city of Canterbury is close at hand for the culture vultures and foodies.

Ivy Lane

Soak up a piece of Canterbury’s rich history in this 16th century half-timbered house just outside the city walls. For chilly spring evenings, the inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove fit that picture-perfect evening with a book in hand, but be sure to venture out for a taste of Canterbury’s cultural offerings, including that iconic cathedral and the gardens of St Augustine’s Abbey just a five minute walk away.

Oastwood Stud

Trust us, it doesn’t get much more Kentish than an oast house in the countryside. In the evenings, snuggle up in the roundel sitting room, wood burner on for maximum cosiness, or brave it and enjoy that first taste of summer with a barbeque on the south facing terrace. When you feel like venturing out, and we wouldn’t blame you if you wanted to stay in this corner of Kent forever, wine tasting at local vineyard Chapel Down, or a tour through the countryside on the Kent and East Sussex Railway are just minutes away.
