What a fantastic cottage - we felt like we had stepped back in time - facilities very good and beds incredibly comfortable and we enjoyed every moment we spent here. The village is picturesque and locals very friendly. We would like to return and explore further.

We had a good time - thanks for the cosy cottage
We spent the most wonderful Christmas at Orions Cottage. The cottage helped to create the fantastic atmosphere we had been looking for, from the cosy living room with the great log fire, to the modern spacious kitchen where we were able to host family and friends. We look forward to returning next year.
We've had a really lovely stay in the cottage. We love the quaintness of the cottage, and the village, finding it hard to tear ourselves away.
The cottage was beautiful. The surroundings are really lovely. We felt like home and want to come back !
Such an interesting cottage in a charming village.
A characterful cottage in a beautiful setting very convenient for Canterbury.
A really, really comfy and homely holiday cottage, full of nice things. A perfect place to recharge batteries - so good to be able to wander down the square for a pint with the locals at the end of the day ! Thank you for the flowers in the bedroom - they looked and smelt lovely.
Lovely cottage and gorgeous little village. We had a great time visiting Kent and thoroughly enjoyed our stay
Lover the wild flowers in the bedroom - lovely welcoming touch
An idyllic cotttage in a beautiful village. Thank you
We had a wonderful time in your lovely cottage. We love it!
Idyllic cottage in idyllic village. Hubby and I want to retire here! So relaxing listening to the birds whilst eating breakfast!
Fantastic place for a holiday. So romantic and the cottage is quite charming. Everything needed for our comfort. Log fire an added bonus. We need to revisit as so much more to see!
We have fallen in love with Orions Cottage and the gorgeous village of Chilham.
A wonderful way to usher in 2012. The cottage exceeded our expectations of a Tudor New Year!
We came as 2 young people madly in love and we left married, more in love and also charmed by the cottage and Chilham. Wonderful stay!
We do not feel we are going home, we feel as though we are leaving it! Thank you.
Lovely, cosy cottage! Great seating in the garden, cottage was clean and well equipped. Thank you
This is the second time at this cosy cottage, which is according to our daughter "is the loveliest holiday cottage ever!"
The cottage is lovely, rooms very comfortable and lounge very cosy. The beds were very comfy and locals very welcoming. Both nearby pubs very good too!
I did not stay at the cottage. I booked it for German friends who were not sure of their English and did not know East Kent.
They are utterly enchanted, and called to tell us what a wonderful week they had spent.
They are a 3-generation family of 4 with serious health problems and they loved the peace and quiet and lack of electro smog in Bishopsbourne.
The owner was also very helpful in every way. Our friends have fallen in love with east Kent and intend to return.
Orions Cottage was everything the brochure showed it to be. It was fabulous! We are recommending Mulberry Cottages to our friends who are planning holidays in England.
Fabulous cottage and lovely village. Beds really comfortable. Fire lovely.

A very special place and the housekeeper is a star.

Loved the fire.

A shower curtain would be useful. From the directions it was not clear that the cottage is not right on the square.
