“A Real Gem of a Cottage!”
Reviewed 6 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Pear Tree Garden Cottage is a perfect place to stay for a relaxing and peaceful getaway yet it is not too far to reach major road networks if you wish to travel further afield. The cottage has everything you could wish for, including champagne flutes and a very comfortable circular bed! We were also delighted to find a generous basket of goodies on our arrival, including eggs, cheese, bread, chocolate biscuits and even a very welcome bottle of wine chilling in the fridge! Thank you very much Steve and Rita you really have thought of everything! The A-Z of Kent map was such a thoughtful idea too!
The little terrace, overlooking the pear orchard was the perfect place to relax in the evenings and we also had a gentle stroll down to the local pub on the village green, just a few minutes' walk away.
We would recommend visits to Royal Tunbridge Wells where you can wander among a range of shops, cafes and bars in a beautiful and historic spa town. Hever Castle, the childhood home of Anne Boleyn, in nearby Edenbridge is also well worth a visit.
We would certainly love to stay at Pear Tree Garden cottage again, it really was a perfect retreat!

“Tranquil base for exploring with excellent facilities”
Reviewed 10 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

A warm welcome from the hosts on arrival, with a lovely basket of essentials laid on to get through the first 24 hours, and a very welcome bottle of wine! The cottage is well furnished and has all the kitchen utensils and little bits you need for cooking (like oil and seasoning), along with supplies of teabags and ground coffee. The cottage was very clean and everything was in working order. Very good value.

The photos of Pear Tree Garden very accurately reflect the property but cant reflect fully how peaceful and tranquil it is. I was graced with good weather for my stay and the highlight of each day was sitting out on the patio overlooking the orchard every evening drinking in the country air (and yes - maybe the odd glass of something).

Steve and Rita were available if needed, which was reassuring as I was travelling solo, but were not obtrusive.

No wifi access, as the blurb says, and I found it hard to get a good enough signal on my phone for anything but quick data transfers - but thats the price you pay for being deep in the countryside and Im sure it did me no harm to have a rest from the internet for a few days. No problem with phone, text or messenger services.

Whilst this is deep in the country, access to the motorway system is only about 5 miles away so its also a handy base for exploring Kent and Essex.

Thank you Rita and Steve - I fear I have been spoiled.

Pear Tree Garden is a cosy, clean, comfortable & welcoming place to stay after touring around Kent, and the garden is pleasant to sit in and relax with a cup of tea or glass of wine and finally rest your weary head in the comfortable round bed. Pear Tree Garden is the ideal place to have for a stress free holiday.

“Relaxing, friendly hosts, beautiful location & perfect facilities”
Reviewed 16 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We had a wonderful time at Pear Tree Cottage; Rita & Steve were warm and welcoming hosts. We were greeted with a most appreciated welcome pack (especially the wine). The cottage was perfect for our needs (my husband & I with our 11 year old daughter) and everything was so fresh and clean. We could have easily stayed another week because we were so relaxed and felt at home. We will definitely return as soon as we can, the cottage and surroundings are so idyllic and in such a lovely part of the country - thank you so much Rita & Steve you have a lovely home. We hope to see you soon.

“relaxing short break”
Reviewed 18 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

many thanks for a lovely relaxing stay at your holiday home. the property is in a lovely setting. \Plently of country walking to do. Easy to find.
The pub is close by, but do check their opening hours. Very quiet village but so relaxing we switched off from our busy lives instantly.
The owners have thought of everything to make your holiday and the welcome hamper was lovely.
