Welcome to Stable Cottages, a complex of six cosy family-friendly holiday cottages in the Kent countryside 


Stable Cottages is a complex of six beautiful holiday homes near Rochester in Kent.

These purpose-built self-catering cottages are situated in 20 acres of beautiful Kent countryside in the picturesque hamlet of St. Mary Hoo. With panoramic views over the Thames Estuary and an abundance of local wildlife, our location offers the setting for some of the best walks in Kent. At the same time as being so peaceful and secluded, Stable Cottages are uniquely placed and also benefit from being conveniently close to Rochester with easy access to main roads such as the A2 and M25 and excellent rail links to London (from either Strood, Rochester or Ebbsfleet International stations). The cottages are therefore an ideal base for families visiting Kent on holiday, couples looking for a peaceful countryside retreat or those working in the local area and looking for somewhere quiet and comfortable to spend their evenings. 

Stable Cottages are owned and run by Debbie and Jason Symonds who live in their family home on site, adjacent to the cottages. Their eldest daughter Kirsty manages the reservations side of things and will be happy to assist with any queries you have before or during your stay. 

There are four two bedroom cottages on site (numbers 1-4) which each sleep up to five people, and two four bedroom cottages (numbers 5 & 6) each sleeping up to 8 people.  All six cottages were purpose-built and are very well equipped to make your stay here as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. They are surrounded by acres of rural farmland and fields and the cottages all have stunning views from inside across the marshes towards the mouth of the river. 

Inside, our charming oak beamed cottages offer comfortable open plan living/dining areas and stylish recently-renovated kitchens and bathrooms equipped with everything you'll need during your stay. Since opening in, Stable Cottages is proud to have always received a 4 star grading by Visit England. 

Guests holidaying here will have shared access to our fantastic on-site facilities throughout their stay which include a heated indoor swimming pool, steam room, fitness area, games room, outdoor play park and laundry room. 

Our excellent facilities and idyllic peaceful location make Stable Cottages the perfect spot for a self-catering countryside escape holiday in Kent.
