Harrier’s Nest

  • 2 Bedrooms Sleeps 4+
  • 1 Bathroom
  • Dog Friendly

Lovers of the great outdoors ‘flock’ to the Harrier’s Nest – a cosy and quintessential country cottage. Two bedrooms make this a beautiful bolthole for small families or groups of friends.

With its dark wood cladded frontage and near-perfect symmetry, the Harrier’s Nest immediately appeals to those craving the calm, ordered and characterful. With a different aspect to the rest of the Mocketts Farm Cottages, this holiday home-from-home certainly makes the most of its country location, with lovely views peeping in from each and every angle. With a snug lounge, a classic kitchen-diner and two bedrooms, plus shared access to the complex games room, this is the perfect property for those looking for ‘middle of nowhere’ bliss, with extra home comforts and life luxuries all part and parcel....

Rest your wings awhile in the Harrier’s Nest and feel the curative effects of a stay in this most peaceful and picturesque part of Kent. The heart of the cottage is a sweet and snug lounge that drinks up the country views and natural light that arrives through the French doors.

The kitchen-diner meanwhile enjoys an entirely different, no less lovely aspect. Overlooking the Mocketts Farm duck pond, follow the lead of your feathery neighbours as you glide though country life at Mother Nature’s pace. Equipped with all the mod cons needed to whip up easy and effortless meals, you can add free Wi-Fi, flatscreen Freeview TVs and a welcome basket to a long list of luxuries and essentials meticulously taken care of during your stay.

Upstairs the two bedrooms (which can be setup as either double or twins) offer classic cottage comfort, with fresh cream walls, warm deep woods and rich burgundy tones creating a vibe that’s charmingly traditional, cosy and inviting – the perfect ‘roost’ after a busy day of stretching your wings.

As well as the Mocketts Farm shared games room and two acre dog exercise paddock* (available to use from Friday 17th May), you can also enjoy the near distance of our award restaurant and massage treatment rooms, The Ferry House, just down the road. Settle in for a taste of Harty, with much that’s homegrown, farmed and foraged on the menu.

We stayed in Harrier's Nest for two nights. Spent the day walking with the dog - loads of great walks all around the island. Cottage was perfect - comfy beds, warm, amazing views, kitchen has everything you need. Would definitely come back.

Beautifully quiet surroundings and, most importantly, the cottage (Harrier's Nest) was superbly decorated to a good, clean standard. The welcome pack was good value and the kitchen utensils and crockery were all in perfect condition. We shall return. Thank you.
