Coldharbour Cottage is a self catering holiday cottage in Stone in Oxney.

The cottage was derelict when I purchased the farm in 2005. Now completely restored to a high standard many of the original features and characteristics of the rural farmhouse have been saved for you to enjoy. We found so many gems, a huge inglenook fireplace, a bakers oven, hidden fireplaces, cupboards and lots of interesting pieces under the floor boards – all are on display now in the various rooms in the cottage!

Now, you can relax in the living room in front of a large open fireplace, or take in the parlour where you can sit in this quiet room reading a book and just relaxing. The big kitchen is equipped with a lovely Aga Oven (easy to use!) and plenty of space for family meals. The Garden Room is a firm favourite too with fantastic views out across the farm towards the Rother Valley as far as the eye can see to the English Channel. The cottage can sleep up to 4 people.

The cottage has won some major industry awards too – so we think we are very special! 

Coldharbour Cottage won the first prize for the “Tourism ExSellence Award” from the South East Tourist Board back in October 2007. In 2008 a feature story about the Cottage and the Country Tours was mentioned in the popular Activ magazine. In May 2009 the cottage was featured in the Travel Section of the Guardian National Newspaper. It also won the “Tourism ExSellence Award” from the South East Tourist Board in October 2009.

And in 2010 the Cottage won the NATIONAL Silver Award at an awards ceremony in the Brighton Pavilion in East Sussex. Last but not least in 2018 we won the Visit England Rose Award (which you can only win once) for Excellence in Customer Service.  Guests like it too!  Reviews are here – take a look!

Outside there is so much to do and see. The Farm has over 200 sheep, some pigs and a few chickens . The Farmers visit the site everyday and are always willing to speak and help explain the life on the Farm. There are some lovely walks around the Farm, a History Tour where you can win a prize and a Kids Quiz too! See our Childrens Page here 

We are just 5 miles from Rye, 8 miles from the market town in Tenterden. Places of interest include Camber Sands, Bodiam Castle, Great Dixter Gardens, Military Canal and a host of local wineries including Chapel Down Winery in Tenterden.

Come and join us, and experience life in a little cottage on the hill.

The garden room has spectacular views across the Romney Marshes towards the sea. Sit and relax here and enjoy the peace and quiet. Adjacent to the garden room is the main bathroom with shower. Outside is a delightful patio area with a barbeque for those warm evenings. In addition there is a kitchen garden where herbs are grown for your use. There is ample space for car parking and grocery orders can be delivered the next day or on arrival.
