  • "Dreamwood lodge was a home away from home."

    Jenny, who was an excellent host, paid attention to every minute detail across the lodge and was quick to respond for any minor hiccups. The beds were extremely comfortable. It took us 45 mins to commute from London. I would definitely book again and will highly recommend.

    It was a pleasure having you stay and really hope to see you again … Jen Property Owner

  • "The property is stylish and clean and very comfortable."

    There's plenty of space and the separate annex allows for privacy if travelling with friends or colleagues, as we did. We parked three cars on the drive and with some juggling could get a fourth if necessary. We didn't actually use the hot-tub but the views across the valley are lovely and when the weather was nice we sat out and enjoyed the setting sun. Communication with Jen, the owner, was excellent from the moment we booked and we were able to ask any questions with quick responses. I would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone looking for a peaceful and comfortable retreat.

    Thank you for your fabulous review ….hope to see you again in the summer ! Jen Property Owner

  • "A wonderful home from home to spend our two week Christmas holiday."

    Jenny is a fantastic host, even messaging before our stay to ask if it was ok to decorate the Lodge for Christmas, we thought this was such a lovely touch. It was beautifully decorated which we really appreciated. Dreamwood Lodge is lovely and peaceful and has everything you need for a short break, the Annexe is a great addition. There are some lovely walks in the area, as others have mentioned it is very easy to go into London for the day, it’s a 25 minute train journey from Orpington station. We would thoroughly recommend Dreamwood Lodge and will be back, thank you Jenny for making our stay special.

    So glad we could make your Christmas special !! Hope to see you again soon.. Jen Property Owner

There's everything you need to have a home from home stay. The hot tub is very welcoming and clean. All the kitchens and bedrooms are well presented . Jen was an absolute dream host and took on board and helped with everything we needed. We are sure it's even better in the summer when you could get out in the garden and appreciate the surroundings! thank you so so much we loved every minute !

  • "Dreamwood Lodge was wonderful."

    It was very clean, well-equipped and beautifully presented. The quiet location was like a place within a place: near enough to central London to make sightseeing easy, but far enough away to escape the hustle and bustle and enjoy the silence of the countryside. Jenny the owner was very friendly and super-helpful. We would definitely stay there again.

    Thank you so much for the review Gary , lovely to meet you and your family , give Betsy a stroke and a biscuit from me !...Jen Property Owner

  • "Absolutely superb property and excellent hosts."

    Would strongly recommend a stay in this property. A beautifully kept accommodating with a fantastic hot tub which was used regularly. We were there for 4 weeks and our host Jennie was more than helpful with advice on the area and local establishments. We will be back again sometime most definitely as it’s location in the countryside is very close to where our daughter and granddaughter live in London. Cannot recommend it enough.

    It was an absolute pleasure to meet you and your family and so glad you enjoyed your stay. Look forward to seeing you again in the future... Jen Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely weekend at Dream Lodge."

    We had 2 Dogs which we cleared with the owner before booking. Jenny the host was amazing, gave us lots of ideas for local dog walks and was on hand via Whats app for any questions. The end fence is loose so be careful with your dogs in case they push through, hopefully that will be fixed by Jenny. Hot tub was great, I think the best one we have had in any of the lodges I have stayed in. Nice a comfy and pretty quiet too. Only improvements would be a basic air con unit to keep it cooler in the summer months. It gets pretty hot and sticky. Be careful when driving into the lodge, my car mud flap got caught on the bump as its quite a step ramp up so stay to the left to avoid that. We will def be back soon ;-)

    Hi , so glad you enjoyed your stay and it was a pleasure having you as guests! The land beyond the fence is being developed to become part of Dreamwood Lodge garden and we have now made sure it is secure. Jen Property Owner

    The property is situated in a peacefull place, with a bus stop just around the corner and railway stations near by. The house is fantastic, if I may say so. We had a fine time there, with our dog, and will surely visit it again on a trip to London.

    We stayed for 7 nights and Jen was super helpful before and during our stay! The lodge is close to Bromley with really quick links into central London which was great for our kids. Also, our dog Maggie was made very welcome and there are some lovely nearby walks in Keston Common with lovely cafe (Daisy Grey) serving some very yummy cakes. We can't wait to come back!

  • "A lovely place to stay."

    We particularly liked the layout of the lodge - the big kitchen leading to dining table and outside garden or the living area to one side, and the bedrooms tucked away at the other end. With the separate barn annexe, this worked perfectly for our group of 5. Everything seems new or nearly new and a few more kitchen utensils would be helpful, but we did cook every day and had a great barbecue. The owner was very helpful when contacted with queries.

    Thank you for your great feedback ! We only started our holiday let a few months ago and so everything is new. Delighted that you enjoyed your holiday and hope you are able to come again soon.... Jen Property Owner

  • "We stayed at Dreamwood over the Christmas period and we had the most magical and amazing time."

    The lodge was extremely accessible and easy to find, and from the moment that we drove onto the drive, it felt like home from home. The lodge was spotlessly clean, and included everything that anyone could possibly need whilst taking a break away. The subtle touches were truly wonderful, from the eco-friendly toiletries, special treats and and accessories for our fur baby, to the spare towels, pillows and bedding. We even enjoyed a lovely glass of bubbly in the hot tub on Christmas morning, which was a real treat! The owner really did think of everything, and provided wonderful customer service. Jen even approved for us to put up our own Christmas decorations to make it feel more like home, which we really appreciated. I would highly recommend this property and would not hesitate to book again in the future. Many thanks Jen, you and your wonderful lodge were amazing :)

The property

Dreamwood Lodge is a detached, beautifully renovated and totally unique Victorian Lodge with a separate converted barn/annexe near Keston in Kent.

Timber-clad, rustic on the outside with an ultra-modern interior, this gorgeous holiday home ideal for families or friends and set in a conservation Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Sleeping six guests in total and situated along a quiet country lane, the property is perfect for cyclists, as well as being near a medieval Church.

Offering a secluded garden which is partially walled, with a 5/6 berth Winnipeg Canadian hot tub, the outdoor space provides somewhere to enjoy the crisp morning air or dinner alfresco.

Inside, there are two bedrooms in the main Lodge and the separate converted barn/annexe sleeps another two guests, for that extra bit of privacy, yet still rentable as a complete unit.

Keston Village has a Post Office, a food store and a charming café, so you will have everything you need for a relaxed, self-catering stay.

If you don’t fancy cooking, treat your loved ones to a meal at the nearby pubs, The Crown or The Jail - Jail Lane, for delicous food and an inviting atmosphere.

The fabulous rural setting has woodland walks from the doorstep leading to Keston ponds and common, yet is conveniently within easy reach (2 miles) of Hayes station which has direct trains into central London.

If luxury is your main criteria then Biggin Hill Aerodrome (1.3 miles) operates 7-minute Helicopter shuttle flights direct into London; the aerodrome also offers a ’Beachy Head' Spitfire Flight which is a 45-minute flight experience in the rear seat of a combat veteran MKIX Two Seater Spitfire or the 'White Cliffs of Dover' Spitfire Flight and Biggin Hill also provides private jet charter flights to Paris Le Borget (other experience flights are also available, please contact the Biggin Hill aerodrome for details).

The annual Airshow in June attracts visitors from all over the country and The Memorial Museum is well worth a visit; the outdoor café is a great place to watch small aircraft take off and land!

The award-winning Holmwood Farm shop/café is just a short walk from Dreamwood Lodge and hampers can be arranged via their website and delivered if required.

The area has a wealth of further local attractions including, Christmas Tree Animal Farm (1.6miles), Foal Farm Animal Sanctuary (4 miles), High Elms Country Park and Café (2 miles), The National Trust’s Chartwell (8 miles), Charles Darwin House (1.8 miles), and for cafés, culture and history, Historic Westerham (6 miles).
