This gorgeously converted original working dairy with wonderful, is nestled in stunningly beautiful courtyside between the villages of Plaxtol and West Peckham in Kent, the Garden of England. Amazingly quiet and peaceful, set in 9 acres of land, all that can be seen is rolling countryside, yet we are just 32 miles from the centre of London with all its theatres, tourist attractions, shopping and cultural activities. It is an easy journey to London, only 35 mins from Sevenoaks to Charring Cross by train. From there the London Eye, Theatre land, Covent Garden, Leicester Sq, West End and other tourist attractions are in easy striking distance. On our 9 Acre site there is so much to do: past the cottages unfolds the beautiful gardens with duck pond on which you can paddle around on the row boat. Or play open air table tennis under the shelter of the barn; take afternoon tea on the lawns or if you feel more energetic play croquet or even tennis in the all weather courts. The Hamptons Farmhouse site is very child-friendly, it is safe and secure (including the water areas) but is filled with adventure and excitement. The 'Fort' is a camouflaged climbing frame with swings, monkey bars, climbing wall and 40m zip wire. By the giant redwood tree, on which swings and trapeze hang, is the massive 17' x 12' super bouncy Jump King trampoline. The genuine gypsy caravan is a cosy place to chill out for children and adults alike. The woodland tree-house with 'super-slide'; secret dens; seven dwarf's woodland playhouse,;climbing trees; and farmhouse animals add to the overall blissful experience. You really don't have to leave our site but Tunbridge Wells and Sevenoaks are 15 mins drive away, with Tonbridge closer still, and each have shopping, swimming pools and an abundance of restaurants. Larkfield swimming leisure centre has wave machines, water rapids, water slides, whirlpool with plug plunge and a 25m pool for swimmers as well as an animal themed toddler pools is 9 miles away. Hop Farm Family Park, with Giant Jumping Pillows, Magic Castle, Funfair rides, Animal Village, Indoor Soft Play, Outdoor adventure play area and '4D' cinema is just 7 miles away. Kent Life is a 28 acre, premier heritage farm attraction that encompasses a wonderful farmyard with a family of friendly animals ranging from donkeys, horses and ferrets to piglets, goats and lambs, many of whom are reared on site. 13 miles. Bewl Water is a fabulous outdoor centre and lake with aqua orb hydro balls, kids fishing , model boats, mini golf, cycling, sailing, regattas, dragon boat races, food and craft festivals and much more throughout the year.17 miles Kent has 42 beaches of its own but the closest ones to Hamptons Farmhouse are in East Sussex at Hastings, Pevensey, Camber Sands, Bexhill and Eastbourne which are about an hour or so away depending on where you end up.36 miles For those who like shopping there is Bluewater, one of the largest shopping arenas in Europe with over 330 stores and restaurants plus three leisure villages Golfers have a huge local choice with 6 courses within 3 to 9 miles including Knowl Park and Kings Hill We are just 1 hour away from the Channel Tunnel. We have free superfast WiFi with speeds normally in the 20-200Mb/s range. We may be rural but we do have fibre optic broadband. We have a detailed Information Pack which includes information on activities, eating out, beaches, shopping, attractions, events and outings and more. This is all available via DropBox. More

About the neighborhood
Hamptons Farmhouse is located in the beautifully rural area between the villages of Plaxtol and West Peckham in Kent, the Garden of England. Tonbridge is the closest town (about 10 mins drive away) but Sevenoaks is just as easy to get to (approx 17 mins drive away) and Tunbridge Wells is very close. Amazingly quiet and peaceful, set in 9 acres of land, all that can be seen is rolling countryside, yet we are just 32 miles from the centre of London with all its theatres, tourist attractions, shopping and cultural activities.
Getting around
You will really need a car so you can get around. There are lots of lovely walks from Hamptons Farmhouse, and you may choose to spend all your time relaxing here, but if you want to explore, you will need a car.
