Situated at 'The Lost Village of Dode', Hillview is one of two semi-detached cottages we offer situated in complete tranquility at the end of a 'no through road' in the depths of the Kent countryside, five miles south of historic Rochester. Designed very much as a small, country 'hideaway' this really is an ideal place if you're looking for a magical, even spiritual place to retreat to for complete peace and quiet.

It is a secluded area, very nice. There is no phone signal and internet signal so it was great to get away from it all. Cottage is very nice to stay at. We both enjoyed our time there.

We have enjoyed our stay in the cottage a lot. It was fantastic to be surrounded by the nature and get away from the busy life in the city. The cottage was very nice and clean. We couldn't recommend enough the place for those who wants to escape the crowds and relax.
