“Cute little cottage ”
Reviewed 20 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Me and my friends stayed here for a girly weekend and it was very nice and relaxing. Not only was the cottage beautiful, but the hot tub was amazing! Moreover, the owners Barbara and Mike were very friendly and welcoming. They checked up on us and provided us with recommendations. Great location, if you like peace and quiet. A lovely little retreat.

“Oustanding In Every Way!”
Reviewed 23 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

person found this review helpful

We wanted a base to see family and friends in the area and, after much research, picked this as it seemed to fit the bill. Not only were we not disappointed but were bowled over by the delightful owners, the seriously high quality interior of the property and its proximity to Bearsted Green and brilliant nearby dog walks. The photos of Knocklofty do not do it justice and, despite only being a 2-bed cottage, it contrived to feel much bigger than the sum of its parts. All this for the nightly price of a very middling hotel - we would book again in a heart beat!

We enjoyed our stay in this comfortable accommodation located in a very quiet and historic part of Bearsted. It is conveniently located for exploring south east England and recommended for those seeking independent living in a lovely village. Barbara is a wonderful host and the property a gem. Book it if you are able as you will not be disappointed.

“Pleasant, comfortable, and so very lovely, with unexpected touches”

We had a wonderful stay at Barbara's place - she was most accommodating. Knocklofty is even nicer than in the images (that's possible), with comfortable beds, lovely decorative touches, and all the amenities you need for your stay. Don't forget your suit for the hot tub - even though the weather was unseasonably cold - the hot tub was the perfect antidote. The surrounding area is perfect for walking to and from town, and through the woodlands. We unfortunately missed the markets - on the sat and sunday mornings. Bearsted is a most enjoyable spot: the quintessential English village - with good pubs (Oak on the Green), lovely walks, and lots of peace and quiet.

We stayed at Knocklofty for a few days peace and quiet. The house is very comfortable and a real home from home. We used the hot tub in the garden which was great! We took our dog with us and he enjoyed the walks in the nearby woodland. We will definitely book again.
