Boughton Lees, Ashford, Kent, England
A unique country cottage, steeped in history, with links to the Plantagenet Kings of England! Use of the entire house and grounds - our cottage is hidden away, surrounded by a big beautiful garden that overlooks the Eastwell Manor Country Estate and has a good sized heated outdoor pool area.

While I can't guarantee snow will be falling outside (it was for us), once you get the fire going in this gorgeous Kent country cottage it becomes your own winter wonderland. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to visit enough in warmer months and enjoy the pool? Either way, the hosts have thought of everything and you'll be right at home....

My family and I recently spent a wonderful 3 nights over the Mother Day’s weekend. On arrival we were greeted by the beautiful smell of the open fire. All rooms were perfectly laid out and very clean and tidy. The character of the cottage is well blended with the modern extension matching seamlessly with the original building. The cottage exudes...
