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.

The space

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.

Guest access

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)

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!!

Really great place for any length of stay. The room was cosy and Judith was a wonderful friendly host. The breakfast was delicious! The location is great for exploring Kent, for walks or just to escape the city- the car parking is perfect if you have a car. Thank you!

A superb host and a delightful property. Honestly couldn't ask for more, Judith greeted us on arrival, the rooms were lovely and the beds comfortable. The house is on the outskirts of Edenbridge so very quiet but easy to get to. And breakfast was a treat. Will be staying again!

Poppy Cottage is stunning and Judith is an unbelievably lovely host, kind and helpful. We had a very relaxing stay and enjoyed the house, company and food very much. We only wish we could have stayed longer than two nights. Thank you Judith!

Judith is the most welcoming and thoughtful host that I have stayed with from Airbnb. Her house is absolutely beautiful and she ensures that you are completely comfortable and made to feel at home during your stay. I loved the little touches that made me feel so welcome such as hot drink facilities and (delicious!) biscuits in the room; the bottle of water and glass left for me at bedtime; the beautifully presented breakfast (Judith's home-baked cheese scones were to die for!). I was only there for a short time for a festival that was being held locally however I wish it was longer and will definitely return one day!

Response from Judith:
Thank you for the fabulous review Hayley, the biscuits were in place of cake that I normally offer afternoon arriving guests but as it was such a late booking that's all I could rustle up, glad you liked them!

Judith was an amazing host, providing an incredibly clean house with amazing attention to detail. The bed was very comfy and the shower is great! In the morning she cooked us breakfast with home made toast which was delicious.

Thanks for the lovely review, glad you enjoyed the homemade bread. I experimented with courgette bread the following day and my guests loved that too!

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.
