About Katherine Hughes
My name is Katherine, I’m 45 and I’m a business manager of our own pub in Staplehurst The Kings Head. I’m married to John and mother of two grown up lads Charlie 20 & Jack 18. We have Murphy the cockerpoo who is friendly And Fat Cat roaming around the fields. I enjoy managing our holiday let and help travellers enjoy all the places to visit in Kent. We have so many places that our foreign visitors are desperate to visit such as Leeds Castle, Canterbury, London, Tunbridge Wells, Rye all within an hour from us. We have made many friends while running the holiday let and enjoy being able to share what we enjoy about living in Kent with all of our visitors. Most of our visitors return year after year as there is too much to do in a 7 night visit x
Katherine Hughes purchased this cottage in 2001
Why Katherine Hughes chose Headcorn
Set in a beautiful location in the heart of the Garden of England. California Annex is set behind my family home . Hawkenbury is a lovely quiet Hamlet village that is in the middle of the Kent countryside. There are two lovely villages with mainline train stations to London only 2 miles away. We are close to London (55 minutes by train) Royal Tunbridge Wells, Canterbury, Bluewater shopping centre, Howlets Zoo, Leeds,& Hever Castles, Many National trust properties, Scotney castle, Sissinghurst gardens and for sightseeing this area is perfect. Many people come here to explore the garden of England and we now have an electric bike hire centre less than half a mile away so that you can hire bikes and visit the local villages. Local Vineyard and tours are available from Biddenden or Chapel down where you can sample their wines and ciders. Kent is very popular for road cyclists especially ones who are advanced that would enjoy cycling to Tunbridge wells through the country lanes and then on to the Ashdown forest for sunning rides and views. The Annex is very private but still close enough to not feel completely cut off. In the evenings you can enjoy the peace of the countryside, from June onwards the calfs and cows actually put their head over the annex hedge to say hello . Hawkenbury has a lovely pub only 4 minutes walk where you can meet the locals and enjoy a traditional lunch and dinner and in the summer months they have a pub garden. Both villages of Staplehurst and Headcorn have lovely country pubs, The Kings Head -In Staplehurst and The George and Dragon in Headcorn, chemist, small supermarkets, Indian takeaway/restaurant, Chinese restaurants, Butchers, off-licence, Bakers and the other convenience shops. There are a number of great restaurants within a 5 mile radius enabling you to eat from pub food to Michelin Star every night. There are plenty of days out for the children from Zoos, Castles, Play centres, Ice Skating, Cinemas.
What makes this cottage unique
Private, Self contained, peaceful, pretty and modern. Rated 4* by Visit England. This annex is not let to anyone I am very careful to only let it to people I know will look after it enabling every stay to be as pleasant as the next. We have equipped the annexe with home comforts such as free sat, Ps3 for the children, Board Games, books and DVD's to make your stay when your in the annexe comfortable. The fields in front and behind the Annexe are owned by our friendly farmer neighbour and he is happy for you to walk round the fields in the summer months. Being behind our family home provides the travellers with piece in the middle of the Kent countryside but the reassurance if they need anything we are only next door to help with information on the local area. Within walking distance from the local pub that provides lovely food and being surrounded by Kentish pubs and restaurants (about 50 within a 10 mile radius) there is always somewhere to eat out if you don't fancy cooking.
