    Lovely cottage, spacious and clean, location perfect for our needs. Only minor niggle was the bunk beds, not much hight between them. My son bumped his head on the one above, but didn't do it again though.

    A well equipped, comfortable holiday home from home well situated for visits to the local National Trust properties and Canterbury. We enjoyed the peaceful location.
