Reviewed 2 weeks ago for a stay in May 2017

Great location, West Peckham very pretty area of Kent, with it's lovely village green within a few minutes walking distance. Pear Tree cottage is in a lovely spot, very quiet and pretty outside, with lovely flowering borders and it overlooks the orchard. However, whilst the kitchen is well equipped and bathroom is fine, we found the furniture in the cottage...

Management response:

Thank you for your appraisal. Most people love the circular bed. It's impossible to have a headboard because of the shape. Perhaps we should have chairs rather than stools at the dining table. We'll talk about that. With 2 leather sofas I would have thought it comfy enough for 2 but appreciate not everyone has the same thoughts. Best regards.

Would recommend to anyone wanting a quiet retreat. Great for exploring the Kent country side.. The cottage has everything you need, Smashing views from the patio and even a green wood pecker visiting every evening.

Management response:

We can't take the credit for the green woodpecker but we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay!

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
