Set down a quiet private country lane on the outskirts of the village and in Rolvenden Layne - this quirky, characterful cottage is utterly charming, welcoming and beautifully presented.  Lovely undisturbed countryside surroundings in this idyllic Kent village. The cottage can sleep up to 5 comfortably but as you have to go through the single room to get to the attic double, it is recommended for family use.  The inglenook fireplace is home to a huge wood burning stove - so winter breaks will be as cosy as summer holidays!  From this great cottage you have easy access to many places of interest including the popular country towns of Cranbrook and Tenterden, Sissinghurst Castle Gardens, Bodiam Castle, award winning Biddenden and Chapel Down vineyards, Smallhythe Place and what better way of seeing the countryside than a trip on the Kent & Sussex Steam Railway.  Great walks and rambles in the area that usually end up at the Ewe & Lamb pub!  Dog friendly...

We love Kent with all the gardens, castles and oast houses. The cottage is lovely, the weather was great. It is good to visit Great Dixter, Scotney Castle, Sissinghurst, and Wye Nature Reserve are all a must! It was my dads birthday while we were here and he really enjoyed it. Our favourite thing was playing a tune on the record player every night. Thank you! I loved living in the attic with the dolls house and the double bed. It is a tranquil location, very relaxing and enjoyable week in the countryside. I loved the quirkiness of the cottage and the rural location.The Bartolinis Family - Hampshire - 29th October 2016

Sissinghurst, Great Dixter, Chartwell Hever Castle Scotney Castle and Smallhythe are all a must! The Ewe and Lamb is a great place to eat as is Orgu2 (Turkish) in Tenterden.

We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful and cosy cottage so much, we felt like home. The kitchen was well equipped. The housekeeper gave us a warm welcome and the neighbour was very helpful when our car broke down.In an antique shop in Rye we found the exact same kitchen scales that are in this stylish, decorated cottage so we were able to legally take a piece home with us.The cottage welcome pack had a lot of useful information in it.Family W from Berlin - 20th August 2016
We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful and cosy cottage so much! We felt like being at home, even the kitchen was well equipped. Thanks for Valerie's warm welcome and also Tony (the neighbour) was so helpful when our car broke down.

Lovely, well equipped cosy cottage with some beautiful touches. Clean and comfortable although my husband is 6'3 had to stoop and bend - lots!. A week isn't long enough to do everything we wanted to do, but the location and setting is perfect as a base to explore lots of places. Thank you.Mr Laidlaw and Family - 20th February 2016
