Pendana Beech House is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty in a quiet rural lane at the foot of the North Downs, not far from the picturesque village of Wye.
“I booked this accommodation for myself and my two friends to escape the city for a long weekend. We were made up with how cosy and lovely the house was. Katy and Brian were fantastic hosts - welcome us warmly, checking we were okay and offering friendly advice about things to do and places to eat. It’s a fantastic location for bike rides - we did two long cycles around the Kent Downs with such quiet roads and stunning scenery! There were lovely village pubs to stop at and the village of Wye which is close by had shops and lovely places to eat (the Indian restaurant Joshans was incredible!). We also did a nice walk and Katy provided a really useful guide with maps. If you’re looking for a quiet, rural and beautiful countryside stop this is the perfect place!”
This newly renovated barn is nestled within the grounds of the listed Evegate Manor.
“I booked a stay here for me and my two friends as a surprise trip away for their birthdays, everything was amazing and I was even allowed to decorate the barn aswell! The barn was super clean and perfect space to just have a little break away! Had the most relaxing weekend chilling in the pool and the hot tub which were all ready and waiting from the minute we arrived, it was lovely to have extra little breakfast bits and snacks already there and the hosts were lovely! We’re all super excited to book and stay again! Thanks so much!”
A top-notch conversion of a small flint and brick cart shed alongside a beautifully restored 300-yearold oak barn. It feels private too, with its own little courtyard garden, colourful borders, terracotta pots, teak table and chairs – catch the morning rays with an al fresco breakfast. Inside all is fresh, bright, light and comfortable. Beautiful oak floors are toasty underfoot, there are chunky beams, thick fabrics, white sofas, French doors out the courtyard and heaps of books. The bedroom makes great use of the space with its fine painted bed, so settle down with best linen, feather and down duvets, views across the garden, and a fully-tiled walk-in shower that’s state of the art. A generous welcome basket includes a bottle of wine should you be staying the week, the flat-screen TV comes with oodles of DVDs, there’s a fully equipped kitchen in one corner and kind owners next door to provide continental breakfast or evening meals should you want them; lovers will take root. There’s walking through woods and paths for the more adventurous, and Canterbury Faversham and Whitstable are near. Nearby Ashford has high speed train link to london only 38 miutes away. Charming.
“We rented Scott and Lizzie’s place for 4 days as base to discover Kent. The location is perfect as everything is no more than 30 minutes by car. Scott and Lizzie are two fabulous hosts. They welcomed us very warmly (still respecting social distances 😀) and nothing was too much trouble for them. They were nice, friendly and always available to help or to give us some tips about the area (yes, they are very knowledgeable). Milk, biscuits, butter, bread, tea, coffee and homemade jams (yummy) were a lovely gesture. Last but not least the plums that Scott gave us from his garden were very tasty. The place is cosy, perfect for a couple. Spacious living room with a small induction hub, there is a nice patio at the back where we enjoyed breakfast and dinner every day (we were lucky with the wether). The bed was very comfortable and the shower in the bathroom powerful. If you drive, there is a space to park the car. Thank you again Lizzie and Scott! Your hospitality was outstanding. If we are back in the area, we will be in touch with you again.”
