    We had a fantastic stay here. Perfect for a country break without being completely miles from anything and everything. Cottage was amazing, really beautiful and the log fire was perfect. We were met by the owner on arrival and had fresh flowers out and a bottle of wine in the fridge. Little touches that made it even better. Pub up the road was fantastic too. For food and staff. Will definitely come again.

    Good central location to explore Kent. Beware if you are above 5foot nine inches tall as the cottage has low beams. The drive into the front garden is not wide enough for even a small car and a resurfacing job is called for. The rear garden is described as enclosed but as there is no rear door it is awkward if you have a dog on holiday with you.

    The steep stairs of the cottage and steep drive way, hampered my enjoyment of this historic cottage. There was only one shelf in the oven and a number of lightbulbs needed replacing. On a positive note I enjoyed staying in such a nice location and the main bedroom was quite large and spacious. The owner was also very helpful with any queries I had.

    A very helpful and welcoming host. A comfortable bed and well fitted kitchen. The stairways to the bedrooms are not suitable for young children or the elderly. A thoroughly pleasant holiday but I would like to see a more cared for rear garden, and more suitable garden furniture in the front garden

    A beautiful cottage in a beautiful setting. Plenty to do in the area, rain or shine! The cottage is spacious although mind your head if you're tall! Lovely local pub. We will definitely look to return.

    The cottage is set in an amazing village. The 14c pub, the oldest in Kent is just 50ft away. It's a cosy cottage with some low doorways. There is a lovely fireplace in the living room that can be lit when necessary. The cottage had radiators that heated up very quickly. Very central to the coast and Canterbury.
