Ramsden Farm Cottage


A lovely hideaway with a cow-print chaise longue, modern paintings, funky bar stools, a sunny courtyard garden and good pubs nearby


3 bedrooms


Sleeps 6


Tucked behind the farmhouse is the old milking parlour, which Sally has converted using reclaimed materials to create a quirky hideaway. Find beautiful oak and cherrywood floors, white walls and vivacious touches, such as a black-and-white cow-print chaise longue. The living area is open and light with lovely standing timbers, comfy red sofas and a wood-burner; the kitchen is big but cosy, with rich red walls and cream cupboards. A stack of cookery books invites creativity; funky breakfast bar stools catch the eye. The downstairs bedroom has twin French walnut beds; upstairs, past the day bed on the landing, are two more bedrooms under the eaves. Upstairs’ bathroom has a free-standing Victorian bath tub; downstairs is a wet room. You have a large brick and cobble terrace garden that faces south; eat out on sunny days and take in long Wield views. Nearby are castles, gardens, great country houses, vineyards, cider makers and three excellent pubs – one a mile’s stroll from the door – and the coast is half an hour: Fairlight cliffs and Hastings are well worth a trip.

Visiting Kent for an epic three day wedding celebration, the Cottage was a real home from home for all of us. The peace and quiet were a wonderful counterbalance to the celebrations. Despite being a floating population of about nine (not all staying at the cottage), we all managed to find quiet places and noisier places for the catchups and conversations of old friends. Those of us staying also managed to fit showers and baths and frock up fabulously day after day... Buses and taxis meant the rest of the week with no car was also enjoyable, visiting Dixter and Cranbrook, pub dinners etc etc

Stunning property in a peaceful location. Sally was very welcoming, provided us with a map for the local area and running routes! We were left to ourselves, which was what we wanted. We had lovely fresh flowers on arrival. Well equipped and good quality kitchen facilities. Loved the wet room. Main bedroom has lovely views across fields. Bed was very comfy, although the room has restricted head hight in places it still felt spacious and quirky. The weather was warm, we opened the windows and had the perfect treat of listening to the dawn chorus every morning. Lovely south facing open courtyard.

Local points of interest from Sally Harrington

  • Miles of sandy beaches at Camber Sands - only 35 minutes away.
  • Ancient smugglers' haunt of Rye, with its harbour and winding cobbled streets, is 30 minutes away.
  • Love Gardens? We are surrounded by them. The world famous Sissinghurst Castle Gardens of Vita Sackville West fame is only 3 miles away & Great Dixter, the family home of gardener and gardening writer Christopher Lloyd is 7 miles away.
  • The West House in Biddenden is a Michelin Star restaurant a few minutes drive away. Kent is known as the Garden of England with good reason, and here in the most picturesque of locations sits a restaurant which celebrates the region's prime terroir.
  • The famous Pantiles of Royal Tunbridge Wells are 35 minutes away. Or take a step back at time and ride on the steam railway at Tenterden - 3 miles.
  • Take a day trip to France. The cross channel tunnel and the ferries are less than an hour away.
