The Coach House

Harrietsham, Nr Maidstone





Experience an enchanting escape to a country house and gardens where a world of tranquillity and enjoyment await you.

Nestled within the lawns and grounds of Stede Court Estate, The Coach House is a hidden gem surrounded by the rolling Kentish countryside of the North Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

At The Coach House every detail has been thoughtfully curated to create an unforgettable experience for guests of all ages. Whether you seek adventure, relaxation or quality time with friends or family, this exceptional home and grounds promises to deliver cherished memories that will linger long after your stay.

Step inside, and you’ll be greeted by a perfect blend of modern conveniences and charming period features, from dark wood accents and crackling open fires, to antique treasures that add a touch of whimsy.

The house is a comfortable retreat offering six beautifully appointed bedrooms and three bathrooms, while the dining room seats up to twelve for memorable gatherings. Two well equipped lounges provide multiple entertainment options. The main conservatory lounge offers a 55” TV with full Sky package plus Netflix and Prime. The cozy second lounge with a large open log fire (logs provided) offers a 45” TV with a PS4, a wide selection of DVD’s, a library of hardback books and all the classic board games, ensuring there is something for everyone, come rain or shine.

Step outside and immerse yourself in beauty of the formal walled gardens, a sheltered oasis of lawns and birdsong. Let your children and pets explore and play safely in the fully enclosed garden, enjoying the tree house, hides and games. Eat breakfast in the sun on the house patio and later in the day fire up the gas or charcoal barbecue on the south facing garden patio (gas, charcoal and logs for the fire pit all provided). Or maybe while away an hour or so in your hammock or the beanbags on the quiet patio.

Pull on a fluffy robe and slippers (provided) and indulge in the luxurious six-person hot tub or rejuvenate in the infrared sauna letting your worries melt away. Challenge your companions to a variety of friendly games of tennis, badminton, bowls, cricket, garden golf, football, table tennis and more on the grass lawn. Maybe take this perfect opportunity to learn to play croquet together.
Venture onto the 40 acres of farm woodlands, where scenic trails and picturesque glades beckon you to reconnect with nature. Ideal for family walks or a morning jog (wellies, waterproofs, and umbrellas in the hall cupboard). You can even enjoy an old-fashioned picnic at our picnic spot using our wicker hampers and cool boxes. Admire the horses in their paddocks and in the woodlands let kids and dogs run free. Roam further afield on local footpaths and enjoy one of our guided walk maps to admire the countryside, the spectacular views over Kent, or just follow paths to our local pub without needing the roads or the car.

In the area around the estate we are blessed with an amazing variety of top-quality country pubs, gastro pubs and restaurants to suit all tastes, plus, a variety of nationally recognised attractions and entertainment options, including several new Kentish vineyards, all within easy reach by car. Even London is just over an hour by train from the main line station in the village.

Come and enjoy a well-earned break with family and friends at The Coach House.

Please be reminded that we are not a party house and to protect our neighbours please keep outside noise down after 10.00pm and no noise outside in the hot tub or on the patios after 11.00pm. Thank you.

Extras and Experiences


Excellent location for a Familly Gathering in a perfectly equipped house full of character 5/5

We booked The Coach House for our annual family gathering weekend, and it surpassed our expectations. Out of all the places we've stayed, this one was the best by far. Brian and Sara, our hosts, have made sure everything you need is provided. The kitchen was fully equipped with all the essential equoment, and the house itself had a lot of character. The garden was a highlight, with different areas to hang out in like a patio, BBQ spot, firepit, garden games area and even a treehouse. The grandchildren had a blast in the treehouse and the games area, where they beat us at everything! Not to leave the adults out the Hot tub and bubbles completed the picture. The location was perfect too. It felt like we were in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by countryside, but it was actually really close to the motorway, making it easy to get to. Brian and Sara were great hosts, there to help out if we needed anything and before we arrived provided loads of useful information, where to find the best local pubs, local attractions, amenties, walks and other things to do nearby. We were welcomed with a bottle of cold bubbles to help us settle in which was very thoughtful. Overall, it was an amazing weekend. Loved it! Recommend it! Will be back!

David Fennelly | 08 May 2024


Thank you so much for a fantastic stay and we really don't want to leave. Being together for a family get together and using the hot tub and enjoying the surroundings was glorious. The tree house was great and the weather fantastic!

Ferrelly's, Chapman's & Pennington's | 28 April 2024

2nd visit 4.7/5

2nd visit, 1st time this time last year. As good as last year, beautiful house with so much on offer. Gorgeous gardens which we unfortunately couldn’t make the most of due to the weather. A few minor niggles which I’ll text vendor with direct. Us 12 ladies loved our stay again, plenty of room in a superb house.

Stella Howells | 24 April 2024


3 generations of family - 10 guests, 1 baby and our dogs stayed for a 60th birthday party. Thank you very much for the use of the amazing house. It was perfect for the occassion and so well equipped. Favorite memories are the big family meals, cards and roulette played by the fire and plenty of time spent in the hot tub. We recommend you enjoy the gardens and we would love to come back and experience in the summer!

Anonymous | 18 March 2024


Thank you our stay was fabulous. Best house we have stayed in, very well equipped inside. Communication and instructions perfect Our casino night, hot tub days and great food were memories to go home with. We would highly recommend to friends and family to stay, gardens beautiful, would love to come in summer to use more outdoor areas.

A Crawford | 16 November 2023

Perfect family weekend retreat 5/5

We booked The Coach House for a family weekend. The criteria for the location was to be as central as possible for everyone to travel to and it was perfect. So close to the motorway but at the same time in the middle of the countryside. We were planning to visit other places but the walks without getting in the car were ideal. The house itself has to be the best equipped house I have stayed in, the hosts have literally thought of everything. We made use of some of the games and enjoyed the dressing up box and photo frame! The garden is so good for younger children from the lovely tree house to games of hide and seek, and of course the hot tub was a real hit. The hosts were great, around if you needed anything, quick to respond and help with the car charger! The information we received pre arrival about the house, surrounding area and local pubs etc was very detailed. We literally wanted for nothing and had a fabulous weekend.

Dawn Calway | 13 November 2023

Brilliant for family/group gatheringss 5/5

Perfect house with everything you need! We were two families of four, plus grandparents and the house offered everything we could have asked for. Kitchen well equipped. Plenty of entertainment for the children (and adults!) and the garden was just fantastic. Comfy beds too. Super speedy communication from the host. Thank you!

Guest | 27 October 2023

Wonderful 5/5

We had the most wonderful stay at The Coach House. It is a beautiful property both inside and out with seemingly endless nooks and crannies both in the house itself and in the stunning garden. The property lends itself to large family gatherings with plenty to do for adults and kids alike. Brian and Sara were lovely hosts - great communication both prior to and after our stay. We were welcomed with a bottle of cold bubbles to help us settle in which was very thoughtful. Loved it! Recommend it! Will be back!

Justine Lear | 26 September 2023

A wonderful house - highly recommended! 5/5

We stayed at The Coach House over the summer bank holiday weekend for a 70th birthday celebration with extended family. The house was everything we could have wished for and we all had a wonderful time making some lasting memories. The rooms were spacious and clean throughout and every need was catered for. The garden was beautifully kept with lots to do for the children and adults alike. A particular favourite for the children was toasting marshmallows at the fire pit and watching the outdoors lights brighten up the garden late into the evening. The owners have paid a lot of attention to detail to make the experience comfortable and memorable for guests. We really enjoyed taking the dog out on walks around the farm and surrounding area, following one of the many recommended routes. We would love to return one day, perhaps for a big family Christmas which The Coach House would be perfect for. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Simon Bedwell | 24 September 2023


This was to have a special birthday - made all the more special by your lovely place and all your attentiveness both to the facilities and to us. Our favourite memory is your signposting inside and out!

Stern, Peters, Manners and Martin | 24 August 2023

Highly recommend! 5/5

The owners have put a great deal of consideration into making the Coach House a fun and comfortable place for guests of all ages. It is a stunning and quirky property, that is ideal for a family getaway with pets and/or children. We'd definitely stay there again. It had all the mod cons you could want and more. A huge, spacious kitchen with plenty of fridge and freezer space, as well as all the kitchen utensils and tools needed. There were lots of different communal areas indoors and outdoors, so you can choose quiet time or more sociable time, depending on your mood. There were lots of entertainment options in the garden and living rooms. Those who want to be outdoors can enjoy the huge, beautiful, walled-off gardens, which were fantastic for our dog who had never left London, to safely explore nature. There are lots of nooks and crannies to explore. The hot tub was fantastic, and really big. The wind chimes, fountain and flowers all made for a relaxing and peaceful environment to de-stress. The local area is gorgeous - perfect for runners. There were ten of us staying, including three very elderly family members, a hyperactive, big dog, and several exhausted, young(ish) adults who needed a restful break. I am an ambulatory wheelchair user (meaning I only need a wheelchair for distances greater than a few metres or so. but otherwise I use a walking stick). Brian made sure there were suitable ramps in place at the few steps on the ground floor (which was not only helpful for me as a wheelchair user but also for the elderly folk). The property wouldn't be suitable for someone who is a full-time wheelchair user, simply because there is not enough space in the downstairs toilet to fit a wheelchair in, but for someone like myself, it worked well. Brian was keen to ensure he'd done everything possible to make it accessible, which I really appreciate and feel he did as much he possibly could with the limitations of a very old property. I'd highly recommend the Coach House and we hope to visit again someday!

Arianne Brown | 17 August 2023

Fantastic stay. Lovely owners. Couldn’t be more helpful. Would definitely recommend 5/5

Fantastic stay. Very clean and tidy house. Lovely owners, couldn’t be more helpful. We had the best time staying and would definitely recommend visiting!

Paul Davies | 15 August 2023


Amazing time here, we loved it. The garden is so beautiful and the hot tub is fantastic! Best holiday cottage we have stayed in!

The Haynes Family | 29 July 2023


We have had an amazing time at the Coach House. You have provided everything possible to make the stay enjoyable and easy, thank you. Our favourite memory will be the kids playing in the tree house and sports field and sitting in the beautiful garden.

The Curson Family | 21 July 2023


Awesome house, it had plenty of room and everything we needed. We loved the sports field, the hot tub and sauna. It was a true destination on its own!

The Smithermans | 05 July 2023


Amazing house, beautiful garden. We had everything we needed and more! Beautiful weather, fun times in the garden, croquet. Voting game in library drawers is a must!

James & Stanch family | 09 May 2023

Fantastic 5/5

We were 12 mid 50’s to mid 60’s girlfriends who get together once a year. This was without doubt one of the best and we’ve done this for about 13 years now. The house was perfect in every way. Beautiful location, everything you can think of that you might need is supplied. We loved every second. Thank you.

Stella Howells | 25 April 2023


A stunning house, which had everything we needed and more! Brian, thanks for your help with a couple of problems we had. Excellent hosts! So many favourite memories - Easter bbq, outdoor games, hot tub/sauna and walking through the local fields.

Fraser Family | 17 April 2023

Family Easter break 4.8/5

An outstanding property that has everything you could ask for (and more). Highly recommended for a multi generation family get together. The hosts, Brian and Sara, could not do enough for us and were always available to help out with any problems.

Simon Fraser | 16 April 2023

Excellent cottage for our special weekend 5/5

We absolutely loved staying at The Coach House. The cottage is enormous and everyone had a great time exploring all the different areas, both inside the house and outside. Everything is excellently laid out, and we loved alternating sitting by the fire in the evening in the library and sitting in the hot tub in the garden. Having been to a couple of large holiday cottages I can certainly say this is an extremely good one, very well located for the railway station and extremely well presented with everything you could want! Worth knowing that some of the recommended walks trek through farmers' fields and are very muddy in the winter - but we had good footwear so that wasn't a problem.

Sam Nugee | 20 March 2023

Long weekend stay 5/5

Beautiful house and gardens and lots of little extras such as wellies, maps of local walks etc! All 8 adults plus our dog really enjoyed the stay and would definitely stay again!

Alice Gouyet | 14 March 2023

Wonderful stay at the Coach House 5/5

We booked a long weekend at the Coach House for my dad’s birthday and had such a wonderful stay. The house is beautiful and well kept. We organised for a private chef to come cook my dad’s birthday dinner. The garden is wonderful, the little ones had a blast the tree house while the adults enjoyed Prosecco in the jacuzzi. We loved it and will definitely book again! Also thanks to Brian for all the great support and recommendations.

Agathe Merat | 28 November 2022

Perfect house! 5/5

We had such a brilliant time at the coach house! Despite the weather being rubbish we still had a perfect time in the house, so cosy with the fire lit and dogs and kids running around. We will be back for sure. Thanks again Brian!

Rosie Leat | 08 November 2022


We had an amazing weekend away from London. Blown away by the house, gardens, estate and countryside. Looking forward to our next visit.

| 02 October 2022


Thank you for a thoughtful and easy stay, we all had the best time ever with lots to do on site. Everything you could ever want and need is available here. We will all be back for sure!

| 25 September 2022


Thank you so much for having us. This was such a beautiful and fun place to have a friends reunion now we're dotted all over the country.

| 23 September 2022


Thank you so much for an amazing stay. A beautiful house in a beautiful place, lots of happy memories made.

| 19 September 2022


Thanks so much for a stunning stay, Brian was always around when needed.
