Sitting pretty in its end-of-row position, the charming Fleet Lodge cottage makes the most of the captivating country vistas over the surrounding farmland to the waters of the Swale Estuary beyond.
The first feature that draws your eye in the Fleet Lodge frontage is its large and beautiful arched windows looking out from the honey-stone bricks. These are your ‘eyes’ out over the fabulous farm-scapes, inviting Mother Nature from the outside in, as natural light and beautiful scenery spill into Fleet Lodge’s large, open plan living, dining and kitchen area. Making up the majority of the ground floor, your party can come together in sociable style, whether mingling in the kitchen over a morning cuppa, a lively lunch around the spacious dining suite or an enjoyable evening of relaxed chat in front of the TV. At the end of a fun-filed day exploring this exquisite corner of Kent, retire to one of three bedrooms – cosy, comfortable and the just the spot to recharge the batteries ready for another day. ...
Fleet Lodge is the quintessential country cottage – hardwood floors, rustic woods, and a charming simplicity in its style that makes no compromise on comfort. The kitchen is part of the heart of the home, warm, welcoming and completely kitted out with all you need to whip up culinary creations worthy of any farmhouse-style kitchen. Serve from kitchen counter to dining suite, where your large square table offers plenty of space for your party to dine together while taking in those country views - a feast for the eyes as well as the palate.
Meanwhile the open plan living area huddles around a flatscreen TV, with ample space for an additional sofa bed should you wish for one. Large enough to be airy, but with an intimate and sociable setup Fleet Lodge is a beautiful bolthole to spend quality time together with friends and family.
A WC makes up the rest of the ground floor, while upstairs are three bedrooms – one with an ensuite and the remaining two sharing a bathroom. With fantastic flexibility, each room can be set up as a double or twin, so whatever your party make up, the rooms can be adapted to your needs. Simple in style, yet big on comfort, they offer the perfect respite to groups looking to holiday together, while retaining just the right amount of personal privacy.
The rest of the Mocketts Farm complex easily completes your bucket list break, with a shared games room with table tennis and table football providing endless entertainment – and perhaps a touch of friendly family rivalry? Meanwhile the great outdoors is just that, with a BBQ and picnic table overlooking the duck pond a reminder that the simple things truly are the best things in life.
And what country stay would be complete without – you guessed it – a good pub? Tick this off the wishlist likewise, as you sample the quality local fare that’s grown, farmed and served in style at the award-winning Ferry House Inn, just a few minutes’ walk away.
With a back to nature break in our country idyll, the best of both worlds awaits. On one hand, blissful seclusion – on the other, a base to explore the many heritage towns, historic sites and natural beauties that call from all compass points throughout this great ‘Garden of England’.
