A Kent Staycation


Our country hideaway might just be one of Kent’s best-kept secrets. Beautifully situated beside the Swale estuary is the 16th century Ferry House and our nearby Mocketts Farm Cottages. Affectionately described as “the nearest faraway place to London”, country seclusion is just 60 minutes from the ‘Big Smoke’.

Surrounded by protected wetland bird reserves, with nearby Blue Flag beaches and abundant wildlife, enjoy the hospitality of our award-winning restaurant and Treatment Rooms on a soul-soothing staycation in Kent.

We’ve stayed [at the Mocketts Farm Cottages] many times before, so peaceful. Wildlife everywhere, very well equipped and spotlessly clean. Great for a recharge and relax, or to use as a base to explore Kent. Would recommend to everyone but would like to keep it to myself as a beautifully quiet secret. The Ferry House restaurant is 10 minutes’ walk away - five star food and all locally sourced. My family and I will stay again.

Our room was very clean & spacious and had a wonderful view over the estuary. We thoroughly enjoyed the food - breakfast was excellent! We would return to explore more of the island and would recommend staying at The Ferry House. The setting was magical, the staff were friendly and it had a very relaxed atmosphere.

A great choice of menu and dinner was excellent. We stayed overnight, getting up early to do some 'wildlife spotting' and were back for a lovely breakfast at 9am. We had a really enjoyable and relaxing stay and we hope to repeat again soon! A friendly reception, great food and a comfortable room. It was an excellent location for wildlife photography and nature walks.

We stayed in the two bedroom cottage [Harrier’s Nest]. It was very comfortable and appeared to be recently redecorated. Everything was in good order. The kitchen was well stocked and there was a generous welcome basket with bread and cake. The furniture in the large living room was comfortable as were the beds. It is out in the middle of nowhere but that means tranquility. There are lots of good walks nearby.
