About Bells Cottage

"Fancy a mini-holiday in the heart of rural Kent but with plenty of places to eat, drink, shop and explore on your doorstep? Welcome to Bells Cottage" - Kent Life Magazine (June, 2018)

Beautiful white washed oak flooring, whites and greys, sumptuous soft furnishings, quirky clever lighting, indulgent carpets, personal objets d'art, attention to detail is Bells Cottage motto. The owners, both interior designers, have lovingly and sympathetically restored this 1800's cottage to a very high standard retaining original features, turning into a contemporary gem. A brand new designed cottage in one of the oldest lanes in Tenterden.

Lounge and relax in the welcoming beamed living room, warm up after a long walk by the log burner in cooler times. Climb up the stairs, enjoy peaceful nights in your intimate bedroom. Wake up, jump into your luxurious bathroom and get ready for another day exploring this beautiful part of Kent. On warm days sip a beverage in your south facing garden, discover Tenterden and the stunning Kent countryside with your family and friends. Stay in or dine out, that's what it is all about.

Bells Cottage, one of our favourite cottages in Tenterden, creates that perfect combination of mixing town with country, a great location at one of the oldest street in Tenterden, surrounded by beautiful décor. A place to return to time and time again.

"Arrived in dense fog but that couldn’t spoil the charm of either the cottage or Tenterden. Beautiful cottage, well located for visiting the area. Spent the start of the year on the steam train and visiting Bodiam. Thank you for a great start to 2017..."

NYE 2016 - Harts & Copelands

"Delighted on arrival with such a stylish, thoughtful, cosy cottage. The location could not be better – walking distance from everything you could possibly need or want. An incredible amount to do, or just enjoy doing absolutely nothing – light the fire and relax. We are thrilled with the cottage. Thank you to the owners and a Merry Christmas everyone. P.S; We will be back in the spring!"

November 2016 - Salcombe's

"A week of dry weather and wonderful Autumn colours. The cottage is a great centre for day trips and is most welcoming at the end of a day exploring. Very comfortable, beautifully decorated and well equipped. Will linger in our thoughts for a long time…"
