  • "Very warm welcome from our hosts, with a useful welcome package."

    The accommodation, was very well equipped and modern. Nothing had been left to chance. Bedroom was spacious with a comfortable double bed. Shower room again, well equipped with electric shower. All superbly clean on the first floor. Use of the attached conservatory was a nice gesture, but we spent most of our time out. Local bus (89) was frequent and took us into Maidstone. Superb river walk to the locks, recommend the Malta Inn.

    Thankyou so much for your lovely feedback. It was a pleasure having you here at Paddock View. Lesley & Steve Property Owner

The property

Maidstone 3 miles.

Set on the owner’s land in a quiet location in East Farleigh just outside of the popular town of Maidstone in Kent is Paddock View.

This lovely, two-storey annexe has a handy location near a stable and pub and restaurant, with everything you could need for a romantic retreat and a self-catered stay.

On arrival, make your way through the gorgeous gardens encompassing the property, before stepping into the open-plan living space.

Complete with gorgeous furniture which has been lovingly restored by the owner, the open-plan space is perfect for cooking up an evening meal, dining at the breakfast bar, and then cosying up to watch a film.

Upstairs, the king-size bedroom offers space to rest, with an en-suite shower room where you can freshen up and prepare for a day of exploring.

Completing the property is a convenient laundry room, and a charming sun room for enjoying the delightful greenery while under cover.

When you want a break from cooking, why not treat your loved one to a meal at the local gastropub, Horseshoes Maidstone?

If you prefer your home-cooking, there are plenty of supermarkets and shops within easy reach where you can stock up on the essentials.

The town of Maidstone has plenty to do, with the National Trust’s Stoneacre, Vinters Park Nature Reserve and the fascinating Kent Life to spend your afternoons discovering.

Further away in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you can trek your way to Bayham Old Abbey, or discover the Enchanted Forest & Gardens at Groombridge Place.

If you love the beach and sweeping coastlines, a scenic drive will take you to the southeast coastlines for a day at the seaside.

Whether you want a relaxing break or an action-packed holiday, choose Paddock View.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


Rochester 9 miles; Canterbury 20 miles

Kent's county town, Maidstone, lies at the heart of the Garden of England. Here orchards and hop gardens surround quaint villages and must-see heritage sights. In Maidstone visitors can indulge in a morning of retail therapy exploring the shops at Fremlin Walk Shopping Centre, before enjoying a cultured afternoon at Maidstone Museum & Bentlif Art Gallery. A popular place to visit is The Archbishop’s Palace, a 14th century building on the banks of the River Medway. Speaking of the river, why not climb aboard the Kentish Lady for a scenic cruise through the Maidstone Millennium River Park? Once you reach the Kent Life Museum, you can gain a fascinating insight into Kent’s rural history in bygone times, whilst an interesting day out can also be had examining the elaborate sleighs, sedan chairs and horse-drawn vehicles of the Tyrwhitt-Drake Museum of Carriages. Although Maidstone is a thriving town full of restaurants, pubs and theatres, it’s surrounded by stunning countryside. You can indulge in afternoon tea in a pretty tea room or enjoy a pint of local ale in one of the many pubs in the picturesque villages of Lenham, Marden, Headcorn and Yalding, all scattered around this beautiful county. Walk or cycle the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, or venture south to Dover, for a trip across the channel, or stop off at the National Trust property Stoneacre. A visit to this part of Kent would not be complete without a day exploring Leeds Castle, said to be the loveliest castle in the world. Once home to Henry VIII’s first wife, Catherine of Aragon, its opulent rooms reveal stories of English royalty throughout the ages, whilst its glittering lake, 500 acres of glorious parkland and fun maze are great fun to explore. Maidstone is a bustling county town, with so much to do on its doorstep.
