Cottage
Set in the glorious countryside of the North Downs, Kindling Cottage is the perfect base for walking, cycling and exploring this unspoilt area of Kent, which has justly gained a reputation as foodie heaven. This beautifully appointed cottage offers peace and quiet in the timeless village of Stalisfield Green, yet everything you would expect from a 21st century home is available, including unlimited broadband, Freesat TV, Blueray, DVD etc. The ground floor provides luxurious open plan living with a fully equipped kitchen, complete with a range cooker, dishwasher and washer/dryer. A farmhouse table and chairs with low level lighting and comfortable seating are made all the more cosy by the underfloor heating.

A farmhouse table and chairs with low level lighting and comfortable seating are made all the more cosy by the underfloor heating. The spacious beamed bedroom can be configured with either a super kingsize bed or two generous-sized singles. Freesat TV is again available. The stunning en suite bathroom has a fully tiled walk in shower and slipper bath, perfect for luxuriating with a glass of something special! Outside is a small private courtyard and terrace, fully equipped for al fresco dining; all set within the friendly owners' English county garden. The Plough Inn, a renowned country dining pub, is 150 yards away (200 yards on the way back!) and offers meal delivery if required. Another great country pub, the Bowl, is less than a mile away.More

Kindling cottage, what a wonderful place to stay. Everything a couple could want, in a self catering cottage. A very practical lounge, dining and kitchen area on the ground floor. Upstairs, a fabulous queen sized bed, and a bathroom to die for. The hosts Chrissie and Frank could not have been more friendly and helpful. Loads to do and see if your history fanatics like us. National Trust properties, Dover castle and Leeds castle in easy reach. highly recommended

Had a week long stay at Kindling cottage .The cottage was lovely - very clean, comfortable and well equipped. It was a pleasure to return to after a days sightseeing. The location is perfect for trips to places such as Canterbury and the coast. We particularly enjoyed Whitstable and Sandwich. There are numerous gardens and NT properties in the surrounding area - all worth a visit. We hope to return as there are still places we did not have time to visit. The very pleasant hosts Frank and Chris are nearby should you need any help . Thank you for a lovely stay! Chris are nearby to help if required

It s an amazing place to stay, we went there for 14 nights. We love the big- bigger bed and the bathroom. Our landlords were very nice and help us every time we needed their. The kitchen still looks brand new and the floor shine so bright. We are sure to return one day. Thank you Frank and Christine for wonderful stay

I stayed here for 3 months while I was waiting to move into my new house. The cottage is lovely - well-furnished and equipped with everything you could need. The setting is idyllic and the owners are friendly and helpful.

Quietly tucked away in the Kent North Downs this cottage is truly luxurious and has been lovingly finished to a high standard. We were welcomed by Frank and Chrissy with fresh flowers and a thoughtful collection of breakfast basics to start us off. Great location to explore Kent attractions. Loved the Buttercup Sanctuary for Goats. Our hosts were kind and informative while giving us plenty of privacy.

We had a great week at Kindling cottage. Frank and Christine were very friendly and welcoming. Everything in the cottage was perfect, milk and butter in the fridge on arrival along with some homemade jam and bread and pasta. From the cottage we were able to visit a number of NT properties, Dover castle, Whitstable and not to be missed Leeds castle!

Ein sehr sauberes, gut ausgestattetes, gemütliches kleines Ferienhaus. Sehr hilfsbereite und freundliche Gastgeger. Man kann direkt vom Haus aus schöne Wanderungen machen oder mit dem Auto zahlreiche interessante Ziele in Kent anfahren z.B. Knole House oder Scotney Castle. Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt.

I've spent decades holidaying in various types of self-catering accommodation all over the country but this has been, without doubt, the best. An immaculately clean, very comfortable property in the heart of rural Kent within easy walking distance of The Plough Inn (serving great local cider and delicious food).Many,many thanks to our splendid hosts, Frank & Chrissie for making this an excellent holiday.
