Well Cottage

Located down quiet Delmonden Lane and about a mile from Hawkhurst, between Cranbrook, Ticehurst and Tunbridge Wells. Well Cottage is the perfect retreat to relax and unwind with its lovely uninterrupted views over the surrounding Kentish countryside.

Hawkhurst itself, offers a wide range of facilities including, restaurants, two supermarkets, farm shops and an array of independent retailers. We are ideally located to visit many National Trust  and garden properties.

Rye and Hastings are only a short drive away while Royal Tunbridge Wells, Sissinghurst Gardens, Bewl Water and Bedgebury are all nearby. Sissinghurst and Pashley Manor gardens, Historical sites such as Batemans, the birthplace of Rudyard Kipling, Bodiam and Scotney Castles are all a short drive away while Tenterden is home to the popular Kent and East Sussex steam railway. Of course, our location in the heart of the Kent countryside means that there is an array of wonderful walks for all abilities as well as plenty of cycle routes for those who enjoy a slightly more energenic form of excercise.

I stayed here as a surprise celebration with friends before I got married. The property was lovely and so homely and the hosts were so kind and so welcoming. The breakfast was delicious and the grounds beautiful. What more could you ask for!



We stayed at Well Cottage for three nights and stayed both in the pavillion and up in the house. Both were absolutely comfortable and well equipped. When you looked out of the window you could see where Kent got the Title “Garden of England” from. The view is magnificent. The only sounds to be heard were the birds and the sheep across the lane. Richard and Liz made us feel at home and we were served with a delicious breakfast that consisted of cereal, fruit, toast, hot cross buns and freshly fried ham, sausages, tomatoes, mushrooms and an egg on toast. I can recommend Well Cottage to everyone.



We stayed for one night in the pavillion in the garden, which was ideal for our needs. Our hosts were considerate and friendly, and served an excellent breakfast. The accommodation is well recommended and we look forward to returning in the future.

We had a very pleasant stay here. Liz and Richard were very good hosts and the house is nicely located with a beautiful garden. Close to the beautiful gardens of Great Dixter and Sissinghurst. Very nice indeed.
