This charming little cottage is set in its own pretty garden within the grounds of the owners' house and has been furnished and finished beautifully.  There are some lovely decorative touches, making Dairy Cottage a very special place to stay.  It is situated between Benenden and Rolvenden within easy reach of Sissinghurst and Cranbrook and is an ideal base for exploring the High Weald with its lovely gardens and National Trust properties.  Hole Park, famous for its bluebells, azaleas and rhododendrons, is just down the road. The market town of Tenterden, home of the restored Kent and East Sussex Railway is close by, where you can wander along the tree-lined high street bursting with independent shops selling antiques and crafts or enjoy one of the many street cafes for coffee or lunch.
Please Note: From springtime 2019, Dairy Cottage will have a new conservatory extension with a part tiled roof.  The addition of this room will add space and light into the living area, creating a separate sitting room and dining room. There will be French doors opening onto a terraced area as before.
