  • "We very much enjoyed our stay at Cherry Garden (Dunks) Cottage and hope to return for another stay."

    The cottage was very clean and warm and well equipped. The area has lots of interesting sites even open in November and the local walk to Bodiam Castle and the Castle Inn pub we enjoyed so much we did it several times! You also made our small dog very welcome with useful towels, extra bed, bowls etc. All in all an excellent stay.

    Dear Mrs Litton, Thank you so much for your kind review. I am pleased that Cherry Garden Cottage provided you with the perfect base to see lots of friends and family while enjoying the countryside of The Weald. We hope to welcome you again soon. Best wishes, Helen Property Owner

  • "Charming cottage, gorgeous garden in a great location Really enjoyed the variety of local experiences nearby."

    We visited Bodiam castle, Tillingham wines and explored St Leonard’s and Hastings. The cottage was a homely and comfortable retreat to return to, with the garden a beautiful spot to relax in. We all slept really well, including our young children! Appreciated the thoughtful gesture of local cherries on arrival.

    Dear Mr Howell, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave your review. I am glad that you had such a relaxing stay with your children and appreciated the garden. It sounds like you had a busy time enjoying local excursions! I too love Tillingham Vineyard - the food there is also delicious. Best wishes, Helen. Property Owner

  • "Obviously not the owners fault but we did think the clock would stop chiming at midnight!"

    ! It didn’t. Should have asked before we booked I guess!! None of us slept because of it.. real shame as everything else was perfect. Ps. Would have been nice to have had some soap in bathrooms ( never had to buy that for every bathroom when we have rented other places!!)We arrived with everything else so had to make another trip to shop.

    Dear Pauline, Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. I am so sorry that you found the clock striking kept you awake. We have become so used to it ourselves that we wake up if, for some reason, it does not strike! However, I appreciate that it may affect some lighter sleepers so will make sure that I leave some ear-plugs available for future guests. For hygiene reasons, I do not leave soap usually and most guests prefer to bring their own but your point has been noted and I will definitely leave some in the bathrooms in case guests arrive without. Best wishes, Helen. Property Owner

  • "A lovely cottage in a very peaceful village setting."

    The cottage is very well equipped for all your needs and is central to visit numerous interesting places in the immediate area. The cottage has a beautiful quiet garden for early evening drinks etc. We found the beds extremely comfortable which gave a great nights sleep after long days out travelling around site seeing. Supermarkets in the neighbouring village supplied when eating in although great pubs close by. We enjoyed our stay enough to extend our weeks trip by 3 additional days as we hadn't covered half of what we hoped to see. We would return with no hestition and hope to stop again in the near future and visit this part of the country.

    Dear Mr Thrussel, Thank you for your kind review. I am so pleased that you had such a lovely time and look forward to welcoming you for your next visit. Best wishes, Helen Property Owner

The property

Resting on the village green in Sandhurst, Kent in the stunning High Wealds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is Cherry Garden Cottage.

This wonderful cottage benefits from a fabulous location in the heart of one of the main cherry growing areas in Kent, surrounded by hop gardens and vineyards.It is close to local amenities, has two lovely enclosed gardens with views of the village’s clock tower, a yoga platform for morning sun salutations, four beautifully appointed bedrooms and two sitting rooms; perfect for friends or families looking to make the most of both countryside and coast in Kent with their beloved canine companion.

Cross the threshold into your new home-from-home where you can warm your feet, after a day of exploration, by the warmth of the woodburning stove in the first sitting room or into the fully-equipped kitchen to rustle up meals for the family; or indulge in an alfresco meal in the front garden, you can then enjoy evening drinks in the firepit, the perfect place to admire the stars filling the sky.

When the sky darkens, climb to the first floor to wash off the day’s adventures in the bathroom fitted with deep bath with a shower over before sloping off to sleep in the king-size, double, or twin room (single beds which can be converted into a super king if needed), alternatively, continue up to the second floor to rest in the double room with a handy en-suite shower room.

If you can tear yourself away from this idyllic dwelling, Rye is a 20 minute drive away and must be one of the most picturesque small towns in the country with its medieval houses and inns, steep cobbled streets and a multitude of small, independent shops and excellent restaurants and pubs.

Families will enjoy a day spent on the glorious golden beach at Camber Sands, or a visit to Battle Abbey, the site of the famous Battle of Hastings or perhaps mountain biking in Bedgebury Pinetum or kayaking along the River Rother at Bodiam Boating Station.

On sunny days, make the most of the nearby coast at Camber and Winchelsea, or the historic seaside resort of Hastings, where you can admire views from the pier, enjoy the fun fair, trampolines, miniature railway, boating pond and mini-golf or immerse yourself in the past in Hastings Old Town and the modern Art Gallery.

Cherry Garden Cottage is located in an AONB offering guests an abundance of attractions and walks including the nearby NT Bodiam Castle surrounded by its moat, the famous gardens at Sissinghurst Castle and Great Dixter, as well as Pashley Manor, for its Dahlia, Tulip and Rose Festivals.

The Bull in Benenden and The White Dog in Ewhurst Green offer excellent food and drink, and don’t miss several Vineyards offering tasting session and tours a short drive away, the National Trust sites of Scotney Castle – great for dog walking in the surrounding parkland and forest, and Batemans, Kipling’s home are all within a short, scenic drive.All this and more awaits at Cherry Garden Cottage.
