“Best Holiday Let in our expereince”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Ideally located for visiting Tunbridge Wells, easy walking distance to town centre and places of interest, yet still a quiet, peaceful attractive setting. We rented the Hayloft studio apartment which although compact included every facility possible, and proved ideal for our purposes. Very clean and tidy, very well presented, comfortable beds, excellent local information provided, friendly and accommodating yet unobtrusive owners. A great discovery, hope to return and would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage

“Great studio room for self catering”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Ford Cottage was very close to the 'Pantiles' the best attraction in Tunbridge Wells where several restaurants and coffee places are to be found. The owner, Roger, made us very welcome and meticulously showed how every thing worked. Room was quiet and very comfortable. Would stay there again for sure.

“Good location and atmosphere!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Great place to visit gardens in Kent&surroundings. We (2 adults and 2-year old child) stayed at Hayloft 3nights and enjoyed of the peaceful atmosphere. Nice to cook, grocery-shop very near etc. Wendy and Roger are very friendly. We/I will be back!

“In the Hayloft in the Garden of England”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My wife and I spent five happy days (and nights) in the Hayloft apartment at Ford Cottage. Everything was excellent. Wendy and Roger are most gracious hosts, very helpful but not at all intrusive. The apartment was quite comfortable. It is up one flight of carpeted stairs with the bathroom below. I would offer one tip to my fellow travelers. Ford Cottage is in a superb location in Royal Tunbridge Wells, but it can be difficult to find. We were not equipped with GPS. If you go there, and really you should, and are similarly unequipped, be sure to ask Wendy or Roger for specific directions. Royal Tunbridge Wells is a larger city than you may presume. That said, Ford Cottage is in an ideal spot - an easy short walk to the Pantiles and onto the High Street. There are plenty of restaurants, shops, and even a supermarket, in very close proximity.

If you'd like to put some grace into your holiday in southeastern England, you can't do better than staying at this gracious place.

“Well presented, comfortable apartment that's very close to town centre & supermarket”
Reviewed 14 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

My Mum and I stayed in The Stables for 6 nights in June. Ford Cottage makes a very good first impression as you arrive: pretty well kept house and flower beds with 2 places to park guest cars (off the road). The owners showed us around the ground floor apartment and were very imformative and helpful. The apartment is also well presented, it is obvious some careful thought has gone into decoration and furnishings, which made us feel at home, as did the owners who got the balance of being friendly/helpful whilst not being intrusive just right. Bathroom, kitchen and linen/towels were all clean and tidy.
We did not do much cooking, as the Pantiles are just 5-10 minute walk away and have nice restaurants. For the few simple meals we did cook, we found all the required equipment. There is also an ironing board/iron too which was handy for linen trousers!
A supermarket is only 10 minute walk away which is very handy.
I would happily recommend Ford Cottage to my friends and family! Something to consider, if you had more than one child it might be a bit too cosy (there is a sofa bed in the sitting room, which increases bed capacity, but does make the sitting room a bit cramped for space). However for two people there is more than enough room.
We really enjoyed our stay - Sissinghurst, Clayton House, Knole are all only approx 30 minutes away.
