    We have just returned from a week at Hawthorne Cottage. What a lovely place to stay, picturesque surroundings and the perfect location to venture the Kent countryside and coast. It's perfectly located for all the beaches from Whitstable to Ramsgate and the many wonderful bays between, we also had a day in Canterbury, visited Howlett's Wildlife Park and other local attractions. The cottage itself is fully equipped with everything you need, including a lovely Smart TV which was handy with two young children in tow - sometimes a bit of quiet time is needed. I would say the only downside is one bathroom. Our family consisted of my 2 children, (5/3) my wife, my parents and the dog, so the mornings were busy and a spare shower wouldn't of gone a miss. There are two locals pubs, a small shop, and a wonderful butchers in Preston. Minster Service has a large Coop where we went for fresh bread and supplies, it's 10-15 minutes away but we generally passed this on our way to and from our daily activities. All in all we had a wonderful, relaxing week and would highly recommend this lovely cottage.

    We had a fantastic holiday at Hawthorne, the setting was quite beautiful and a wonderful escape for us a family. We loved exploring the farm land and took a couple of nice walks, some very nice places to eat nearby and Canterbury not too far away. The hosts were lovely and made us feel at ease. Thank you.

    Lovely cottage with some nice features - not so good for the tall people but we loved it, ground floor bedroom was great as were the 2 upstairs, comfy beds and sofas. Kitchen diner was very well equipped, baby's high chair and cot was a bonus for us. Overall a lovely place to stay the kids loved the big garden area.

    The cottage is quiet and well equipped. We enjoyed the spacious gardens and walking the 21 acres of orchard. It provides a good base for visiting East Kent.

    We had a lovely stay at Hawthorne cottage with a toddler and a baby. Well equipped for staying with young children with a stair gate, cot, high chair and some toys. The owners were very helpful. Beautiful area.

    This was a lovely cottage and we had a great holiday. A cottage with only one toilet that is designed for six people is a pain. I thought that the price was a little high given that most cottages have at least an en-suite and additional bathroom these days. Didn't find the b-b-q that was offered!
