Kent Cottage Holidays was formed in May 2008 with just one property Honey Cottage.

Honey Cottage proved to be a very popular choice for people looking for a short break home from home stay with that little bit of luxury thrown in. As the Cottage became more and more popular, planning permission was sought in August 2008 for a Lodge to be added to the land at the back of Honey Cottage. Having both the Lodge and the Cottage on the same site enabled larger families to holiday together whist retaining their own privacy; we also recognised the need to have a property that was disabled accessible and a property that was pet friendly. Honey Lodge proved to be more of a lengthy process and challenge than we anticipated. Finally the planning for Honey Lodge was granted and work began in the September 2009. Honey Lodge was hand built by Chris and was completed in May 2010 and has been extremely popular offering something a little bit special. In October 2011 we gained planning permission for our latest addition, a 1 bedroom tree house designed by Chris. In November 2012  the tree house was completed and has already proven very popular with bookings from all round the world. The addition of A Secret Garden and Enchanted Faraway Tree has enabled us to offer 1 night stays at a selection of the properties.

During the past few years we have achieved top review count on Trip Advisor, "Rated Excellent" award trip advisor, a continued member of Britain's Finest. In November 2011 we become a member of Produced in kent, and provide local products within our welcome packs.
