A stylish and modern, yet cosy and welcoming house, which is very well equipped and in a good position for castles and gardens alike. The welcome basket was gratefully received and the coffee machine well used! Thank you.

A beautiful cottage in the depths of Kent! We booked the cottage for my in laws who were over from Australia for our wedding so wanted to ensure it was special. Well, it was! Dee was very accommodating with our various guests who stayed at different times throughout the week. The location was perfect for them to explore the Garden of England in between helping us set up for our wedding. Thank you, Dee!

An absolute home from home for all of us, and a fantastic place to prepare for our wedding! All 6 of us had the best time in Dee's home, and felt so comfortable and cosy. The house is surprisingly spacious and we had lots of room. We loved cooking and eating together around the dining table. Dee's home is full of colour and character, which is a reflection of her wonderfully warm and welcoming personality. We cant recommend this house highly enough, and really hope we can visit again soon!

A lovely clean & comfortable cottage, a good base for days out. An easy check in procedure & the welcome basket was an unexpected treat. We were blessed with lovely weather so no need to light the fires & the storage heaters were more than adequate.

We adored our stay at Ashenden. Dee couldn't have made us feel more welcome or comfortable. It really is the perfect cosy cottage. We loved tramping over the fields to The Bull in Benenden and lighting the log fire in the evenings. Thank you Dee!
