Secluded staycations in Kent

It’s times like these that we come to appreciate the simplest things in life are truly the best – fresh air, simple freedoms and the health and well-being of our loved ones.

Here at Mocketts Farm Cottages our doors and hearts remain open to those looking for a peaceful and secluded break a bit closer to home.

Our little corner of Kent has always had Mother Nature’s blessing. Neighbouring the Swale river estuary and surrounded by nothing but rolling farmland and two wetland nature reserves, it’s a tranquil choice for a staycation in Kent.

Private cottage accommodation here is kept to the most meticulous of standards. With our wide-open spaces, country walks, abundance of wildlife and low-key leisure spots, it’s the perfect place if you’re looking to press pause on the everyday.

Just one hour from London and with excellent road connections from the M2/M20 motorways, secluded country bliss is closer than you thought possible – a change of scene that’s just good for the soul.

Home is where 'Harty' is

An isle within an island, ‘the isle of Harty’ is connected to the Isle of Sheppey by a road causeway.
