About Fleet Lodge

Fleet Lodge is in an idyllic location with fantastic rural views indoors and out. The contemporary barn conversion is incredibly comfortable, providing a superb standard of accommodation for six people in three bedrooms, one of which is ensuite. It is one of five gorgeous properties on Mocketts Farm in Harty. When booked together, the estate can accommodate upwards of 53 people, making it a sensational venue to host a family reunion, an extra special Christmas, or a memorable celebration with far-flung family and friends. Mocketts Farm owners also run the 2AA Rosette Ferry House restaurant a short walk from the cottage, serving produce so fresh and local that you'll see it growing in the kitchen garden. They also offer treatment rooms where you can soothe away any aches with a massage.

Harty is on the Isle of Sheppey, a blissful slice of heaven with two nature reserves, quiet beaches and open spaces to explore. Walk from the cottage to the 900-year-old St Thomas' Church or follow the circular Isle of Harty Trail, which loops Leysdown beach and past the RSPB "raptor point" where you can watch birds like Marsh Harriers. The trail is suitable for walking and cycling and is mainly flat and traffic-free, making it a favourite for visitors of all ages.

Fly a kite, go sailing from Chatham Maritime Marina or kayaking off the coast at Barton's Point. Local attractions include mini golf at Leysdown on Sea, Minster Abbey and the Gatehouse Museum, Eastchurch Aviation Museum, the Blue Town Heritage Centre. Look for birds and other wildlife at the nearby Swale and Elmley National Nature Reserves. Even sitting in Fleet Lodge's garden, you are likely to see owls, ducks, hares, and rabbits without having to move. You can drive to Canterbury in under an hour, opening up a wonderful array of attractions, restaurants, shops and its impressive cathedral; or visit Rochester which is closer and also has an impressive cathedral, eateries and shops to browse. The golden sandy beaches of Broadstairs, Margate and Ramsgate are also within driving distance for a day trip out and you could even cross the channel for a day trip to France.

Fleet Lodge is also dog friendly along with all other cottages at Mocketts Farm. Fleet Lodge has a fully-fenced dog safe garden and we have recently opened our dog exercise paddock which is available for use of all Mocketts Cottages guests when pre booked. 

Fleet Lodge and the other properties at Mocketts Farm are open for bookings all year round. It's hard to believe that this beautiful oasis of tranquility is only an hour from London. Leave your desk and, before you know it, you'll be relaxing in this incredible place with your favourite people.

Enjoy all this for less with variable rates including great value multi night stays, last minute trips & mid week breaks!

Location (Kent)

Accommodation Comprises:

Fleet Lodge is at the end of a long barn conversion, next to The Saltings. It is immediately recognisable by the huge arch windows on either side of the front door. Accommodation is over two levels.


  • Communal areas are open-plan with the living room, dining space and kitchen all flowing seamlessly together, making it possible to enjoy beautiful views and natural light all day long.
  • Settle back in the seating area and watch the 42-inch TV with Freeview channels and a DVD player.
  • Family meals will once again be a pleasure rather than a chore as you take your time, lingering at the table that easily seats eight people. As with the living area, the dining room has a big arch window and a glass door that opens onto the paved terrace.
  • Fitted kitchen with an efficient U-shaped layout, high-quality appliances that include a dishwasher, and cupboards and drawers stocked with pots and pans, crockery, glassware and the other tools you need for self-catering. There is an American-style fridge/freezer and plenty of space to store food and prepare meals.
  • Cloakroom with a WC and a hand basin.


  • All three bedrooms can be configured as doubles or twins, depending on your needs. A cot, camp bed and sofa bed can be added if you need to accommodate more than six people. Please discuss this with the owner before booking. Each bedroom has a TV with a DVD player.
  • One room has an ensuite with a shower, WC and a hand basin.
  • Family bathroom with a shower over the bath, WC and a hand basin.
