We really enjoyed our stay at Pear Tree Garden! The cottage was very comfortable, with a large open living, kitchen and dining area. It is well stocked with everything one would need to feel at home. We loved the Swan on the Green, which is walking distance! The food and beer from their own brewery was excellent but for me the best of the best was the pear orchard. There is actually a small pear orchard with a patio and table set and a chimney style bar-b-que. A walk across the orchard reveals the most beautiful view of countryside and villages. We also enjoyed a few walks along the public footpath that wound through the farmland. It was the best!
The cottage is set in beautiful Kent countryside with views of the Downs and lovely sunsets - weather permitting!
It is down a farm track path but easily drivable in a regular car (slowly) but yet within easy walking of a great brew pub (The Swan on the Green - Trumpeter Best recommended)
We were spoilt with the hottest April day in 79 years during our stay and really enjoyed breakfast on the patio! The cottage is well furnished, and the kitchen well stocked with everything you need. As previously mentioned the welcome pack is great too. Steve and Rita were away when we visited but we were well taken care of by Ann so many thanks.
Although it feels isolated the road links are very good and nearby towns quickly accessed.
We will definitely stay here again next time we visit the area.
First rate place to stay!!! It has everything needed for an incredible home from home experience. Provisions in the welcome pack are well thought out!! Steve even supplied me with extra milk!!! A wonderful cottage in every way!!!
We had a great 2 weeks at Pear Tree Cottge. It is so peaceful and picturesque, with a short walk to the very friendly Swan on the Green pub.
We did appreciate an early checkin after a long haul flight and having an array of 'goodies' including a bottle of wine was a nice touch.
Steve was a great host & we would definitely recommend Pear Tree Cottge. The snow made the drive down the lane a challenge, but it did look beautiful.
The cottage was just right for 2 people. Quiet, rural but handy to explore Kent. It was comfortable, cosy and a great place to re-charge our batteries. Even the sun made an appearance. Brilliant!
My fiance and I had a lovely time at Pear Tree Cottage, it's really roomy and has everything you need for a weekend away. The photographs, while good, definitely don't do it justice!
The welcome hamper of bread, biscuits, porridge, tea, coffee, milk, butter and wine was really appreciated and great for that first night/morning.
The village of West Peckham is a 5 minute walk away down a country track and the local pub is definitely worth a visit - really good food and lovely friendly local atmosphere.
There are lots of walks you can start from West Peckham - although would recommend a circular one as buses/taxis aren't easily available.
We also went to Whitstable for the day which was only a 45 minute drive away. One of the best places in the country side for oysters, seafood and a really good pint/gin and tonic.
Overall would really recommend this for a couple for a weekend away who just want to relax and spend a bit of time in the countryside. Steve and Rita were always on hand to give help/advice and we had some lovely apples and pears from their orchard.
