    Fabulous cottage, like something out of an interior design Catalogue. Came for a birthday weekend with the family, it couldn't have been more perfect! The owners were so helpful, even lent us a pushchair! Would definitely use again.

    We had a fabulous time at the Coach House, all 8 of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay, celebrating a 50th Birthday. So warm and cosy with the log burner and underfloor heating, much needed in January! Thoroughly recommend to others. Lovely owner provided a welcome basket too. Would love to return one day.

    Fabulous cottage, great hosts - kids had a fantastic tour of the farm from Richard! Wonderful location, just a short walk to the beach. Sandwich is a lovely quaint town, plenty to see and do in the local area. We are a family of 7 aged 10 - 80 and this holiday was perfect for all of us!

    The cottage is a great house located on a working farm with fantastic views of the countryside and livestock all around. The quiet beach is just under a mile away, via the famous and stunning Royal St George's golf course. Our hosts were incredibly hospitable from arrival to departure, providing an array of food and drink on arrival, garden games, bikes for the kids and a tour of their farm. We were also within easy reach of Dover Castle and the White Cliffs, as well as many other regional activities for families. Overall, we had an amazing weekend and would love to return in the future.

    The holiday was booked through my son as it was a birthday surprise for me! We all agreed it was a fabulous place to stay. The wonderful welcome basket and fresh flowers were an added bonus. We ate in all weekend and the spacious kitchen contained everything we could possibly need. The layout suited us with plenty of living space available and the grandchildren particularly loved the 2 staircases! It also appeared to have a delightful garden but unfortunately the weather was not particularly good so we did not make any use of it or of the surrounding amenities - hence the lack of any comment on those. Would definitely like to come back.
