Imagine yourself arriving at a warm and inviting detached lodge right in the unspoilt corner of The Weald of Kent, known as "the place where London ends and England can begin", an area of outstanding natural beauty. Amusing chatty ducks, some hand-reared by the owner, will no doubt do the meet and greet.

Tasteful décor, open plan living and dining, a wood burner for chilly nights and a terrace with garden for warmer nights makes Duck Lodge a great Kent getaway. It’s modern, inviting and has been newly refurbished. Light pours into the lodge via multiple French doors, all opening onto the terrace offering uninterrupted and beautiful country views.

Superbly located for extensive country walks any time of the year and visits to wonderful Penshurst Place & Gardens and Chiddingstone Castle & Gardens, both within 2 miles of the Lodge. Nearby popular country pubs are ideal for an evening drink or a cooked meal too. Watch for sightings of pheasants, rabbits, owls from the house and you might even spot a rare white deer in the field. You can bring your dogs too, but just keep in mind, no duck for dinner so keep your dog on the lead please.

Although Duck Lodge can sleep 4, two of the party must be under 12 years old, and they will sleep on a sofa bed. For larger groups, this property can be booked alongside Little Duck Lodge which is less than one minute walk away. Please contact our booking team on 01227 464958 for more details.

So bring your walking boots and binoculars to Duck Lodge and make the most of this wonderful rural spot…. it surely is a lovely hideaway for a couple or young family.
