Situated in the garden of England, Poppy Cottage is the perfect location for a business traveller or holiday maker who needs easy access to all that Kent, Sussex and Surrey offers. Open fires and pretty gardens create a peaceful home from home.
There is plenty of space in this pretty Victorian cottage, with many features including a private lounge with an open fire for guests. A long cottage garden has many different areas to eat and relax in providing privacy and quiet away from your travels or work stress.
The large King room is directly next to the bathroom. There is also the most comfortable sofa bed in the lounge which becomes a private bedroom with is made up as a small double, this is suitable for either one adult or a child over the age of 10. You are welcome to use the kitchen for cooking meals up until 7.30pm and there is a private lounge for you to relax in. There is an office for use by arrangement with use of a printer/photocopier and all normal office supplies.
Interaction with guests
I respect peoples privacy but happy to interact and share a glass of wine! I am a keen gardener so in the summer I tend to be outside most of the time and in the winter I am snug in the kitchen in front of the fire.
Other things to note
If you need two King beds and accommodation for 2 couples then this, on occasion, can be arranged.
A delicious continental breakfast is included - eggs, fruit, toast and homemade Jams. Cooked breakfast is available by pre arrangement for a small added charge.
Evening meals can be arranged by prior arrangement.
Please contact for the rate of the second bedroom and/or the sofa bed. All rates quoted are for the King room and extra guest only. (I have contacted Airbnb to try to establish how to upload a rate for the second room however at this point it can only load per extra guest, therefore there is an additional charge for additional beds, I will confirm on booking)
Come and relax!
I'm sorry this is a no smoking house but smoking in the garden is not a problem.
The reservation is for the named verified guest only and their partner in the one room unless otherwise requested and agreed by the host.
Check in time :- 2.00pm however if you are attending a wedding or need to change and the room is free happy to accommodate reasonable earlier times. If you need a very early check in there may be a small fee to accommodate the fact that the room cannot be let the previous night.
Check out: 10.00am if you have been somewhere fab and need an extra lie in just ask but please don't take advantage (someone once didn't leave until 6.00pm! that's taking the mick!!)
The sofabed is £35 per night for Children under 12 and £40 thereafter - there currently is no method to charge this via the airbnb online booking system other than the additional guest charge of £15.00 therefore the outstanding should be paid upon arrival - Thank you for your understanding.
As I have now lost my lovely dog Millie you are welcome to bring one dog at the rate of £10 per night, they are allowed in the kitchen and garden only. There is a dog bed here and feeding bowls etc so travel lightly as I will sort out everything for your furry friend!
I would appreciate it if you brought your slippers!!
Hi, I am a well travelled Kiwi/Brit who has spent all of my life in the hospitality industry so I know how to cook and look after people. I look forward to welcoming you into my home where it will become your home for as long as you wish to stay. Short or long term stays are welcome and if I can help you with anything about the area, a lift to the station or just some company then I am more than willing to do so.
My favourite travel destination is New Zealand however Wales is a close second.
Poppy Cottage is a peaceful home and everybody who comes here falls in love with it - I hope you do too.
