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...

The owners were so friendly and helpful and did everything they could to make sure we enjoyed our stay. The wi-fi is pretty spotty but I enjoyed the chance to be unplugged for a bit. We didn't have a car and though we managed OK with cabs, we would have been better off if we'd had one. We also had...

About the neighborhood
The tiny village of West Peckham is situated so conveniently. Within just a few miles you can find plenty to keep you entertained. With theatres in Maidstone, Sevenoaks and Tunbridge Wells, cinemas in all three plus Tonbridge, parks, woodland, farmland, stately homes, castles, fabulous restaurants and gastro pubs....and the list goes on and on. Cricket on the village green is a regular occurrence, plus there is the occasional visit from Morris Dancers who perform outside The Swan On The Green. How English can you get?! The menu at The Swan changes regularly and everything is cooked from fresh. The River Medway runs close to West Peckham and, on a warm, sunny day, nothing is nicer than a stroll along the river bank. If you are a keen angler there is fishing in Yalding and Haysden Country... more
