About Hockley House

This elegant, large holiday home near the Kent coast, is set in undulating countryside, encompassing an entire wing of a country manor. Beautifully finished with a blend of antique and contemporary furnishings, complementing this period property.

The owners of this superb cottage have spent time carefully created a home from home, ensuring all the creature comforts you could possibly ask for are in place for a memorable stay. The living room has a selection of DVDs, books and extras to entertain all the family. Spend hours cuddled up around the open fire, on the sumptuous sofas with a book in hand and your favourite tipple beside you.

In the summer try out your culinary skills on the BBQ, enjoy the sun in the private patio overlooking the beautifully kept private garden, sharing the moment with friends and loved ones.

If you can pull yourself away from this immaculate home, you will find yourself in the depths of the Kent countryside, with wonderful walks and several English Heritage sites and gardens just waiting to be explored. However, whilst rural, you are certainly not remote. Nearby Alkham is a short distance away, where you will find a superb pub.

This perfect Kent self-catering holiday home offers flexible accommodation with five bedrooms and three bathrooms making the home absolutely ideal for larger groups of family and friends, be it for a special weekend gathering or a long summer time holiday.

What makes this area
So special...

Perfectly located within a few minutes of the White Cliffs of Dover, the Battle of Britain Museum and Dover Castle and yet in the depths of a hidden valley offering total peace and quiet. The World Heritage Site of Canterbury and St Augustine's Abbey is 30 minutes away and if you have the time bring your passport and pop over to France for the day - it takes less than an hour! If you can tear yourselves away from this lovely property there are great local pubs to visit including The Marquis at Alkham which is approximately 1.5 miles away.
