Wow! What a fantastic cottage, so deceiving from the outside, everything you could wish for and more, it certainly exceeded our expectations and would definitely recommend to family and friends.

So relaxing and peaceful and lovely scenery, we were regularly visited by a hare in the garden.

The steam train journey to Tunbridge Wells is a must and the Groombridge enchanted gardens are lovely especially to see the Zeedonk.

Many thanks for a lovely holiday, we will be back.

We’ve had an amazing time staying here at Bramble Cottage. The cottage is very well decorated and provides a most relaxing environment for a holiday away (especially the patio in the evening when the sun shines). I congratulate on the facilities you have provided here!!

The location has been perfect for visiting several National Trust places including Scotney Castle and Sissinghurst gardens.

We have had lovely evenings out and I would highly recommend the Nevill Crest and Gun for a fantastic dinner and atmosphere.

Thank you both for letting us stay at your cottage.


We’ve had such a lovely shortbreak here- lovely countryside all around us, beautiful in Autumn colours, and we have been very comfortable.

Such a great place to stay!

Thank you.

What a fabulous first holiday destination for my twin girls. Beautifully spacious cottage amidst breathtaking scenery.

You may have convinced this city girl that life in the country ain’t bad at all!

We will be back- with husband in tow.

We stayed at Bramble Cottage for 2 months after relocating back to the UK from Brisbane.

We had a wonderful stay, the children loved playing on the farm and talking to the cows!

Even though we will be staying in Groombridge we would love to come back and stay!

Thanks Andrew and Rebecca xx
