  • Our 2nd time staying here and enjoy it every time

    Chris2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • My girlfriend and I stayed here as we needed a place close to see family. After looking online we found this great place and at such an amazing price as well. We had a friendly greeting and a tour around the place. Wendy was such a lovely and informative host and made us feel at home. The amenities were outstanding and couldn’t have asked for a cleaner place. Wendy has even gone to the effort of spraying all the door handles especially with this virus going around. The hot tub was such a great touch, even in the cold climate it was very relaxing. Overall we had an amazing stay, a great nights sleep and everything we could have asked for in an air bnb and more. I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay around the Medway area and I can’t thank Wendy and Sean enough for such a great stay and being amazing hosts.

    Richard2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • The hot-tub is brilliant and makes the place along with the wood fire.

    Mike2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is beautiful with a very private garden - so homely and the touches the hosts add are lovely.

    Nia2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • This place is wonderful, it’s secluded so there’s privacy with your own fences, everything you could possibly need in the lodge itself, the wood burner is a gorgeous touch, the smells, the warmth, it was all very very cosy. The hot tub is so lovely too, lit by fairy lights in the dark! We would definitely stay again and Wendy is a lovely helpful host when checking in. Overall, a wonderful ‘home from home’ with some added luxuries!

    Kayleigh-Louise2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Had a fantastic stay . Amazing place. Loved the hot tub! Wendy is so thoughtful with all her little touches!

    Vigo Village, England, United Kingdom

    Situated at 'The Lost Village of Dode', Hillview is one of two semi-detached cottages we offer situated in complete tranquility at the end of a 'no through road' in the depths of the Kent countryside, five miles south of historic Rochester. Designed very much as a small, country 'hideaway' this really is an ideal place if you're looking for a magical, even spiritual place to retreat to for complete peace and quiet.
    Hillview is the neighbouring cottage of Woodside. Built of green oak with imaginative use of handcrafted wrought iron work, the cottage, was designed to be 'inward' looking to promote solitude and silence. It is timber framed with the ceiling in the sleeping loft being particularly spectacular. Great use has been made of the available living space and all the rooms are well equipped for their size. What makes this cottage unique is that it lies in a tiny hamlet known locally as Dode which was virtually wiped out by The Black Death in the 14th century. All that remains of the original village is the small, former, Norman church, which was last used as a place of worship in 1367, then deconsecrated. Restored in the Victorian era, it is now a popular venue for civil wedding ceremonies. The site as a whole is steeped in ancient history, details of which can be obtained from the owner, who is an expert on the subject.
    The Lost Village of Dode Far lies far away, in a magical place, where time has stood still, in an almost forgotten valley between Luddesdown and Holly Hill, nestled in the North Kent Downs in the South East of England, there stands a beautiful, enchanting & romantic Norman church which is loved and cared for by your hosts Doug & Mary, it is the only remaining trace of 'The Lost Village of Dode'. This unique, lovingly restored, Norman church, located within an amazing setting is home to our unique wedding venue and two cottage retreats Woodside & Hillview. The two cottages stand just below and within the grounds of the church and enjoy a really peaceful outlook across fields and up to woodland on Holly Hill. It's a superb location for keen walkers with easy access onto the North Downs/Pilgrims Way, which leads to England's premier cathedral city of Canterbury. Although well away from busy main roads, Dode is within comfortable driving distance of a number of visitor attractions, such as the majestic Leeds Castle, medieval Igtham Mote, Chartwell, former home of Sir Winston Churchill, and the historic naval dockyard at Chatham. The cathedral city of Rochester with its Norman castle above the River Medway, is an easy drive as are the creeks and inlets of the north Kent coastline where there are a number of RSPB bird sanctuaries. London, via the M20 is an hour's drive.
  • Dougs cottage was very nice to stay a weekend at. There are 2 cottages in the building and there may be other guests there. The location is very remote, but beautiful. A perfect getaway. There‘s heating, towels, coffee and tea maker and a hairdryer. Thanks Doug!

    Luis2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Where do I start....this place is truly magical! Such a peaceful beautiful cottage. Doug was kind enough to accommodate myself plus 3 dogs who thoroughly enjoyed the local area for dog walks. It’s very remote so if you looking for somewhere totally off grid and to enjoy nature this is the place for you!! Doug also gave me to a little look inside the church which was breathtaking! I will definitely be coming back in the future!! Thankyou so much!

  • Charming cottage in a relaxing part of the world. Felt renewed after a peaceful weekend here with our two dogs. Everything we needed was provided and it was the perfect place to switch off and unwind with nice country walks on our doorstep. Would recommend if you need to escape city life!!

    elena2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • A very special place. Hillview cottage is like a little Hobbit house, made from timber, blacksmith’s iron, stone and peg tiles. It is in a magical setting, down a lonely country lane, next to an ancient church, surrounded by woods and fields. Wildlife abounds, there are lots of walks and much to see and do nearby.

    Andrew2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • My friend and I stayed for 2 nights and had a great time, it was exactly what we wanted - lots of great woodland walks, a cosy warm home to curl up and read in, and a feeling of being far away from city life. Would definitely like to stay again.

    Victoria2019-10-22T00:00:00Z

    The Hideaway is situated in the heart of Kent in the rural village of Sole Street, Parish of Cobham & Luddesdown. We are walking distance to Sole Street Station on the Victoria line to London. Ebbsfleet & Meopham are a driving distance away so St Pancras and Victoria can be reached in 17 - 35 minutes. The location is great for people who love long walks & nature as we are surrounded by ancient unspoilt woodlands and rolling hills. We have a choice of three Forestry Commission Parks to visit.
    The accommodation is a large bright and light studio space with a separate toilet and separate shower room. There is not a kitchen but concealed cupboards housing a fridge, microwave, kettle and toaster. Please see the photograph. We have a very comfortable 5 foot bed. We have tried to provide guests with all home comforts. We have provided Amazon Prime via the Firestick. There is access to a very comfortable decking /patio area with bbq facilities. Those of you who love the coast Whitstable, Margate and Herne Bay are easily accessible by train or car. Visit historic Rochester and explore many of Dickens' haunts. We have many excellent restaurants and pubs. The Leather Bottle is a Dickensian pub with a great ambience and Roy the chef - his specials are not to be missed. Whilst in Cobham pop into our local Community Shop and sample their amazing freshly baked goodies and checkout their gifts. If you have any questions one of our local volunteers will love to help you. If you pop in on a Saturday morning our lovely Michele will greet you with a smile and offer any assistance you may need.
    Why not visit our local National Trust properties OWLETTS & the COBHAM Mausoleum or travel further afield to IGHTHAM MOTE - there is so much to do.
  • Had a thoroughly delightful 2 week stay, whilst waiting for a house purchase to complete. This was such a lovely spot, that we almost didn't want to leave! It's decorated beautifully, is very well provisioned, and is more spacious than it looks in the photos. The nearby pubs were great, and commuting in to London was straight forward. Anna was a charming host, and made everything so easy for us.

Perfect for a short stay, as there isn't an oven, but everything else you need is provided. Parking on premises, TV with Amazon prime, netflix etc, heating, hairdryer, microwave, kettle, toaster, bathroom with hot water, breakfast provided etc. Really nicely decorated as well, and everything was so comfy and cosy.

The location is handy for visiting London and is close to the historic towns of Rochester and Gravesend. The Bluewater shopping centre is just 15 minutes drive away. Meopham and the neighbouring villages have a good selection of pubs and restaurants.
  • Our shepherds hut really was beautiful, lovely surroundings, peaceful. Everything we needed in a small cosy space. Very comfy bed. Only sad we couldn’t stay longer. Thank you Annabelle.

    Alice2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at the hut, everything was superb! It was very cute and stylish. We came by train and it was super easy to get to. The night we stayed there a storm and although we didn’t really get to explore the outside it felt really warm and cosy inside. Thanks Annabelle :)

    Carmen2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is such a lovely place to stay, it’s so cosy and in such a peaceful place. We actually only live about 20 mins away but I felt like I was in a whole new place. Was so tranquil and quite. The hut itself was amazing, so cosy and warm. The breakfast was a lovely touch, we enjoyed the crumpets whilst watching the horses in the field. The hut was very clean and had everything we needed. The shower was lovely and warm and very clean. Couldn’t fault the place, would 100% recommend.

    Faye2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Such a beautiful stay, easy to find made my partners birthday extra special! Such amazing value for money would stay again!

    Anna2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at the Flowers Shepherd hut for one night only in celebration of my husband's birthday. The accomodation is so unique and cleverly handcrafted and contains everything you need for a relaxing nights stay.Clean, tidy and finished of with some beautiful touches. For how reasonably priced the accomodation is know expense was spaired. Beautiful bedlinen and towels and for such a small space one of the biggest and most comfortable beds I've ever stayed in.A simple selection of cereal, crumpets, breads, milk and Jams served for breakfast was a perfect little treat to wake up to. Set in an idyllic setting of the countryside it's very peaceful and relaxing but only a short walk to local amenities, with plenty of trail walks along the way. The host was amazing, kept me up to date with our stay and was only a phone call away if needed. I highly recommend this accomodation and cant wait to return myself in the near future.

    Rich2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • First time ever staying in accommodation like this and was not disappointed! The hut has been beautifully designed and huge attention to detail. Very peaceful and cosy :)

    Hannah2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Sparkling clean, lovely accommodation, everything and more you could ask for in a continental breakfast. All fresh! Would definitely recommend and be staying here again when visiting the area

    Aimee2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Very cosy and very clean. Though it is an hut, it is very comfortable! Also the breakfast was very good. I would definitely recommend this for an unique experience. About 10 mins walking to train station in Meopham and you can get to London Victoria in about 40 mins. Or just enjoy the country living around Meopham.

  • Julie’s place was the first Airbnb place my partner and I have stayed at and all I can start off by saying is that they’ve set our standards very high for other Airbnb places! They displayed so much warmth and trust towards us on the get go and made us feel right at home. The room had far more useful features than expected which we found very pleasant on arrival. Everything there is clearly new and will no doubt be super clean on arrival... also, the bed was super comfy. I had no complaints at all when staying at Julie’s place and would happily stay there again.

    Situated at 'The Lost Village of Dode', Woodside is one of two semi-detached cottages we offer situated in complete tranquility at the end of a 'no through road' in the depths of the Kent countryside, five miles south of historic Rochester. Designed very much as a small, country 'hideaway' this really is an ideal place if you're looking for a magical, even spiritual place to retreat to for complete peace and quiet.
    Woodside is located next door to our neighbour retreat Hillview. Built of green oak and recycled materials with imaginative use of handcrafted wrought iron work has been used to great effect throughout. Designed very much as a small, country retreat to be 'inward' looking, you'll find that the minute you set foot inside the door the cares of the world melt away as you begin to unwind and soak up the atmosphere with its intimate, almost medieval, feel. Comfortable, contemporary furnishings in all the living space allow guests to relax and make the most of their stay. Great use has been made of the available living space and all the rooms are well equipped for their size. What makes this cottage unique is that it lies in a tiny hamlet known locally as Dode which was virtually wiped out by The Black Death in the 14th century. All that remains of the original village is the small, former, Norman church, which was last used as a place of worship in 1367, then deconsecrated. Restored in the Victorian era, it is now a popular venue for civil wedding ceremonies. The site as a whole is steeped in ancient history, details of which can be obtained from the owner, who is an expert on the subject.
    The Lost Village of Dode Far lies far away, in a magical place, where time has stood still, in an almost forgotten valley between Luddesdown and Holly Hill, nestled in the North Kent Downs in the South East of England, there stands a beautiful, enchanting & romantic Norman church which is loved and cared for by your hosts Doug & Mary, it is the only remaining trace of 'The Lost Village of Dode'. This unique, lovingly restored, Norman church, located within an amazing setting is home to our unique wedding venue and two cottage retreats Woodside & Hillview. The two cottages stand just below and within the grounds of the church and enjoy a really peaceful outlook across fields and up to woodland on Holly Hill. It's a superb location for keen walkers with easy access onto the North Downs/Pilgrims Way, which leads to England's premier cathedral city of Canterbury. Although well away from busy main roads, Dode is within comfortable driving distance of a number of visitor attractions, such as the majestic Leeds Castle, medieval Igtham Mote, Chartwell, former home of Sir Winston Churchill, and the historic naval dockyard at Chatham. The cathedral city of Rochester with its Norman castle above the River Medway, is an easy drive as are the creeks and inlets of the north Kent coastline where there are a number of RSPB bird sanctuaries. London, via the M20 is an hour's drive. For a family day out, why not try Howletts Wild Animal Park, near Canterbury, or slightly further afield the seaside town of  Margate (about an hour's drive), with it's many and varied attractions.
  • Such a great place! Cottage was amazing and located in a beautiful valley. Couldn’t have asked for more.

    Matthew2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • it certainly is a very special place. My wife was brought up less than 8 miles from here and we couldn't believe such a peaceful place could exist anywhere near this location. An enchanting place with so many lovely walks, I will certainly be looking to stay again.

    Roni2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent, so much better than I could have hoped for. Clean and cosy.

    Martina2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • The cottages are in a very secluded and very quiet part of Kent, snuck away at the end of its own valley lane next to a Norman church. No people and no mobile signal! The facilities inside are great and has some lovely touches such as wrought iron work, big rugs and a gallery bedroom. It also has a large hot tub in the main bedroom. Certainly a great location for walks to the local country pubs of Meopham and Cobham.

    Chris2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely little place to stay! Communication was good- and everything was as expected. So calm and peaceful.

    Heather2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Woodside. It’s set in a wonderful rural location - Incredibly peaceful and quite. At night the only sound we could hear were the many owls hooting in the woods. Beautiful! I’d recommend this place for anyone wanting to get away from it all, and yet still be close to amenities.

    Pamela2019-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely character building with a story to tell, very nicely presented inside and with a lovely garden. The host, Harriet, is very personable and lovely to chat to. Ideally located to explore the local area, and only 8 - 10 miles from Brands Hatch too. The bed is lovely and comfortable and the room is instantly relaxing as is the entire home. Thoughtful touches abound and a lovely breakfast awaits in the morning. Local amenities are nice and close with plenty of places to eat and drink. My wife and I really enjoyed our, all too short, stay.

    Gordon2019-10-20T00:00:00Z

    Linda2019-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely house and super hospitality from Harriet.

    Richard2019-08-18T00:00:00Z

    A street of Victorian terrace houses built in the 1880's. Ten to fifteen minutes walk to the town center and close to Maidstone East railway station. (Direct train to London in just one hour) Great for shopping; restaurants, bars, and coffee shops.

  • Very friendly and welcoming. Ideally situated for town centre. Met my needs perfectly

    Peter2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • This is much more than I expected-a wonderfully clean and comforting place to stay! Outstanding value and hospitality.

    Justin2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I stayed at Sarah and John's place for 9 nights. The house itself is stylish and clean. There is a lovely big garden, shared sitting area and kitchen. Guests have their own bathroom. Everything is easy to use and access. We had everything we needed and we were also given a few things for breakfast which was really nice. The location is very good as well. It's only an 8-10 minutes walk into town to shops and restaurants. About 8-10 minutes walk to Maidstone East Station which gets you to London Victoria station in an hour. Maidstone Barracks is about 12-15 minutes walk away. Library about 10 minutes walk away. There is a corner shop at the top of the road. Very convenient. Plenty of good restaurants in town and some nice pubs around the area. Sarah and John are both lovely and welcoming people. We will definitely stay here again.

    Juanita2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah's place is beautiful and full of character. Our room was spacious and Sarah left us breakfast for both nights' stay. The area is quiet and we slept for ages uninterrupted! The home is walking distance from town with plenty to see and do! Sarah is very knowledgeable about the area and did everything to make sure we were happy and comfortable. We would definitely stay again, a home from home :)

    Nilushi2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • I will be staying again, can't fault Sarah and her lovely home with one exception, the parking.

    Gary2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah and her husband were great! Very welcoming and helpful. The place was ideal for a weekend stay, close to the station and very tidy. Definitely recommend it.

    Adriana2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • The best Airbnb experience so far. Sarah, John and Lemmy (the cutest, friendliest doc ever) are so warm and forthcoming hosts, that you will definitely have a marvelous stay there. I can only recommend to book at Sarahs. The room is spacious and the little adjacent room with a small fridge and space to put your suitcase in is very helpful. The bed is all comfy and the neighborhood quiet, so you can find a good night sleep. Sarah and John are really friendly, caring and easy to talk to. They leave you for yourself though, if you prefere. I would always come again.

    For something a little bit different...a spacious, bright room with a low Japanese style super king bed and modern en-suite bathroom with rainfall shower. In a stylish, modern, peaceful home with an artistic twist. Teas, coffees, breakfast cereal, luxury bedding and gorgeous toiletries provided. Just minutes from the historic market town of Rochester, Chatham dockyard, and bustling Maidstone, this also makes the perfect base for trips to London and the rest of Kent. Warm, friendly, helpful host.
    The room and en-suite are in a good sized town house on an award winning development on the outskirts of Chatham and Rochester. The house is full of interesting artwork, has modern, fitted appliances and a few touches of cosy luxury - throws and cushions etc, to make you feel completely at home. The garden is being gradually turned into a beautiful courtyard, and I can't offer any outdoor space at the moment (though from next year will be able to). The development has lots of green space, and there are fields and paths about 150m away. I have a reasonably sized television, which is hooked up to a Chromecast for Netflix streaming etc and with a good selection of DVDs. However I'm not much of a TV watcher, and it's not HD! You're welcome to browse my book collection, and I also have a few board games.
    The house is perfectly located for: - Rochester airfield and BAE Systems, for those travelling for work or pleasure - we are directly opposite! - Medway: We are 6 minutes' drive from the beautiful historic market town of Rochester, 8 minutes' drive from Chatham dockyard, and 15 minutes from bustling Maidstone - Rest of Kent: we are conveniently located just a 5 minute drive away from the M2 motorway. Why not visit the stunning villages of Aylesbury and West Malling? (Both 15 minutes). Or build in a day trip to beautiful Canterbury (35 minutes), have dinner by the sea in pretty Whitstable (40 minutes) or Seasalter (35 minutes), or browse the market stalls and listen to live music in Faversham (30 minutes)?Leeds Castle is also 15 minutes away for a brilliant day trip. If you're willing to travel a little further afield, then Royal Tunbridge Wells, Bewl Water nature reserve, Dover Castle, and the Turner Contemporary gallery at Margate, can all be reached within an hour's drive. - London: if you want to build a day or two in London into your trip, while basing yourself in Medway, then we are perfectly located (see 'getting around'). There are some lovely cafes and restaurants nearby, and I would be happy to provide recommendations. There are also supermarkets if you want to buy/make your own food.
  • Hannahs home is absolutely beautiful. I’ve given it 5 stars as it’s a real home from home, and finished to a high standard. The bedroom is huge with a fantastic on suite shower room & the bed is so comfortable, you just don’t want to get out of it in the morning. Having a free roam of the house to sit and watch tv in the lounge to using the modern kitchen with all the mod cons available to use. The whole house is a lovely, warm, cozy and friendly place to stay. I actually looked forward to coming home at the end of the day because it really did feel like home. Also the house has its very own off road car parking, which is a big plus, as most places don’t offer any parking at all. Thanks Hannah for everything 👍🏻

    Peter2020-02-07T00:00:00Z

    Colin2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Hannah was a great host and a pleasure to talk to. The small touches everywhere were thoughtful and made our stay a very special one. The bed is very comfortable, so we slept soundly. Every element is clean and considered. We felt relaxed and welcomed, we’d definitely stay again!

    Lisa2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • Hannah’s the best! A beautiful home, a nice big bedroom, and a great en-suite bathroom with all the amenities of a hotel room. Kitchen is fully equipped, with dishwasher and washing machine. There was space set aside for me in the fridge/freezer and kitchen cupboard. Convenient to catch the bus to Chatham station for those that want to commute into London, with easy connections to Kings Cross, Victoria and London Bridge. Can’t wait to stay at Hannah’s again.

    Kevin2019-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • This was our first foray into airbnb, so not quite sure what to expect- Hannah was a fabulous host - welcoming and friendly, cuppa offered on arrival was much appreciated. Room is lovely, top quality furnishings, comfy bed with good linen. Ensuite with loads of extras provided. Hannah really has thought of everything.

Plus the added bonus of badger the dog and his two friendly feline friends. What lovely people, would book again in a heart beat. Thank you!
