Pet Friendly Holidays at Hawthorn Farm

When you have a family pet, it can be difficult to know what to do for the best when you go on holiday. Leaving them behind at the kennels or a cattery can be heart-wrenching and expensive. It can also be hard to find suitable pet friendly accommodation in Kent, with all the space you need for you and all your family too...  That's why we offer a welcome "home from home" experience for you and your pets - whether they're four or two legged, furry or feathered - they're all welcome to stay at Hawthorn Farm!

Hawthorn Farm Cottages in Kent is an ideal holiday destination for pets, especially dogs...

Hawthorn Farm is right in the heart of orchard country, and close to the famous Saxon Shore Way and Stour Valley Walks - so you'll not be short of wonderful dog-walking opportunities when you come to stay. We've been told by many of our dog-owning guests that their pooches have such a great time here, that they're reluctant to leave! We have about 2 acres on-site for you to enjoy with your dog on a lead, but we thoroughly recommend you take them to explore the surrounding countryside, as you can walk for miles of uninterrupted Kentish countryside.

Why not try one of the dog friendly walks designed by Explore Kent? These circular routes offer a variety of distances, inclines and terrain for you to enjoy with your dog.

And if you'd like to go out for a few hours without your beloved pet, we can put you in touch with one of our friendly local pet sitters.

Two of our cottages are designated as pet friendly. We simply charge £25 per stay for up to 2 pets, which includes a pet welcome pack.

The doggy basket includes dog treats and poop bags, as well as the following items to borrow/use while you're here:

  • - Dog bowl
  • - Spare pet blanket
  • - A few toys
  • - A disinfectant spray in case of accidents
  • - A pet wash bag in case you need to use the washing machine
  • - 2 temporary dog tags with our phone number, in case your dogs go walkabout!

Primrose Cottage

At the end of the terrace of three, with a large playing field out the back and easy access to a path/driveway down to Corner Drove and the orchards (great for dog walking, as it's open countryside and no roads for miles!)

Primrose Cottage is also adapted for wheelchair users, including: allocated parking nearby with flat path access directly to the front door, ramp access over the threshold, a spacious wet room with shower/toilet grab rails, and a wide (4 foot/120cm) electric adjustable bed in the second bedroom.
