Considering I booked this the day before arrival, I was really pleased to have found such a lovely house to stay in. Beautifully decorated, fitted out and thank goodness for the log fire as the weather was chilly! Linen, towels, crockery - all absolutely beautiful. Your office staff were really helpful and polite, I have already recommended you to a friend who has since booked. A pleasure to deal with.

A real home from home - a beautiful cottage - wonderful to find somewhere so peaceful and unspoilt so close to home. The children enjoyed hanging out in the downstairs room. Plenty of history, the bus ride to Canterbury was fun, in between frequent trips to the coast.
