It's open plan living room with quaint exposed brick and beams has a southerly aspect and looks out over the beautiful formal gardens at Landews. Where better to enjoy a Pimms and Lemonade or soak up the sun! Upstairs two well appointed bedrooms both have exposed oak beams and stunning views. In the main bedroom the floor to ceiling panoramic window provides stunning views across open countryside and the swimming lake as far as the Swale. The second bedroom is accessed from the main bedroom, it also have feature exposed beams, fabulous views and it can be arranged as a twin or double room. Downstairs the open plan living comprises:- the lounge, with two comfortable sofas and solid wood floor, opening in to the feature gally dining area and the functional modern kitchen. To the west of the cottage you have stable type door giving access to a patio with beautiful scented Wisteria above (seasonal), on which to watch the sun go down. On the patio is a charcoal BBQ. Located in one of the most beautiful, unspoilt and peaceful areas of mid Kent, Oak cottage provides an ideal base for anyone visiting Kent or London. The fields, woodlands and wildlife of the Landews Meadow Estate provide the most beautiful location, with the benefit of your own swimming lake. From the cottage you can walk for miles in woodland carpeted with bluebells (in April and May), to enjoy the countryside, or just sit and enjoy the tranquility of the private gardens and lake. Challock is centrally located between Ashford, Canturbury and Faversham and from this position in the heart of the county you are within easy reach of all of Kent's attractions. Leeds Castle is described as the loveliest castle in the world and it is hard to disagree on a sunny summers day, it also has lots for the kids to do, adventure playground, maze and falconry, Dover and Heaver Castles are also within easy reach for a day trip, Canterbury Cathedral or the charming Cinque port towns provide fresh sea air and fish markets, or you can visit any of the many clean sandy beaches around the coast. One of our favorite days out is a trip on the miniature steam railway the RH&D railway which runs a scheduled service from Hythe to Dungeness, being pulled across the romney marsh by a scale steam locomotive is a great experience for little kids (and big kids). The village of Challock has two pubs, one serving excellent food,also the barn shop in the village provides fresh Kent produce 6 days a week. In the village of Challock and on your doorstep other activities include, horse riding, cycling, gliding (the gliders fly right over the cottages providing a fantastic view of Kent) and the Beech Court Gardens & Tea rooms. For a trip to London, Ashford International station is only 6 miles away and the high speed link will have you in to St Pancras in 38 minutes, bookable in advance for as little as £19 per person. You could not wish for a more beautiful centrally located base to either put your feet up and enjoy the tranquility or visit all that the Garden of England has to offer. More

The cottage was cosy and warm with good amenities. Very clean and quaint. However we did find the shower was a problem, it kept going cold and the water only trickled out, other than that everything was excellent.
