  • "Very friendly and helpfull owner of the property."

    Absolutely a beautiful garden and a safe location. Very luxery with swimming pool and Jacuzzi. Close to London and close to Kent. Depending on the wind you can hear traffic from the motorway.

  • "Overall pleasant place to stay for short break."

    Bathroom seemed to have issues with dampness as mould on ceiling areas a constant use of dehumidifier needed and on first night slug in shower area. Hot tub and pool used which were lovely. One area of improvement maybe could be that soft seating provided outside similar to other cottages on site

  • "The pictures of Willow cottage do not do it justice."

    The cottage and the surroundings are superb. The one thing that does need to improve are the directions to the cottage…the current ones are not clear enough.

  • "The owners were very helpful and available when we called or texted them."

    The cottage was clean. The location of the cottage is within a shared area with neighbouring cottages and hot tub and a swimming pool. The cottage was very nice for a short stay however few improvements needed. - Provide guides/instructions for the property (we didn’t notice there was a freezer at the back of the kitchen counters until the end of our trip) - The heating was not working. It was very cold the first night as we only had one electric heater. After asking the owners we noticed there was a spare fan heater. - The cottage could do with a coffee table by the sofas for when you want to watch TV and eat. - Pathways to the cottage could do with some lights as it gets very dark in the evening and it is a long walk from the entrance of the property. Having to use mobile flash light can be difficult when you have bags to carry. - We were expecting there to be basics like salt/pepper/sugar/milk but none was provided given the price we paid for the stay. However basic kitchenware provided.

  • "Hi Gets very dark, especially this time of year."

    Would DEFINITELY recommend lighting on the pathway up to the cottage. Other than that, everything else was brilliant. Thanks so much.

  • "We have had a wonderful stay at Willow Cottage, the only thing is that in the evening it was quite dark walking up to the cottage so a torch was necessary."

    The cottage was clean and comfortable and the owners were happy to help if any problem arose. The heating system struggled on the first night but the owners had provided extra electric heaters so we were soon comfortable. All in this is a very pleasant place to stay in the Dartford area.

  • "Loved our stay thank you!"

    The electric fob to open the electric gate seemed to have a dead battery? Couldn't get the gate to open so we parked outside. The address on the Sykes app took us to somewhere 5mins away, another place called "willow cottage" which was confusing. But we found our way eventually. Other than that, very happy thanks

    We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Apologies your fob battery was not working (you only had to ask and we would have provided you with a new one) during your stay . Many other guests have found the property without issues so I’m not sure what we can do to resolve (I will speak to Sykes to discuss if there is anything else we can do to make finding the property easier ) Many thanks Property Owner

    Had a very relaxing stay. Garden, Pool and hot tub are well kept. Our bath room was a bit small.

The property

This purpose built log cabin sits within the landscaped grounds of the owner’s home within the town of Hawley, Kent.

Enjoying lots of space with the benefit of a shared swimming pool and hot tub, Willow Cottage is an exceptional base for a couple looking to break away from everyday life.

Upon arrival you are greeted by a private off-road parking space, before wandering through the beautiful gardens to reach Willow Cottage.

Internally, this quaint annex features a contemporary open-plan living space with LED spot lighting and laminate flooring.

A generous, corner sofa provides a plush spot to rest after a long day, whilst the wall-mounted TV provides entertainment.

Take a seat at the breakfast and keep the chef company whilst they become acquainted with the appliances, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge and even a washing machine, so you won’t have to pack your whole wardrobe!

Step outside and take advantage of the spacious, shared grounds, offering a choice of pretty seating areas across decking and lawned expanses, along with a beautiful, secluded summerhouse housing a hot tub and obviously the heated swimming pool is not to be missed!

As the night falls, begin your nightly routine within the sleek en-suite shower room before taking comfort in the king-size bed.

Dartford is a bustling market town home to a wealth of independent shops, pubs and restaurants, plus some fascinating attractions including the fabulous Orchard Theatre hosting some of the latest and most sough-after products, while the Stephen Oliver Studio and Gallery is home to original pieces and framed prints from the artist.

A scenic drive will bring you to the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty where keen walkers can head onto the Saxon Shore Way while The Heron Cycle Trail is a great way to experience the local scenery and the Dickens Walk around Higham will also take you past Gads Hill Place, the home of Charles Dickens, where tours are available.

The historic town of Rochester has many must-see attractions including the Cathedral, Castle and charming high street lined with many bars and restaurants.

Alternatively, trains into central London take only 40 minutes and run frequently, so you can easily spend a day exploring the wonders of the capital!

Willow Cottage provides a romantic base, whatever time of year.

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