Had a lovely week at your lovely house. Hope to come again at the end of July.
Another fab week staying at the Ladybird. See you in the new year.
Everything we need and more, part from the RAIN. We did manage a couple of knock ups on the tennis court - oh to be 20 years younger! We also enjoyed coffee at Rodmersham. Unfortunately we didn't see Kent countryside at its best due to the weather but did visit some interesting historic castles/houses. Very enjoyable week at your very comfortable lodge. Thank you.
Little gem of a find! Wish we could have stayed longer! Very comfortable and spacious for 5 large bodies and very hospitable "hosts". Gym and tennis court proves the icing on the cake for our sporty son. We appreciate the thought put into mating Ladybird lodge a home from home. Love the tranquility of the garden.
Had a great time. Lovely place. Would have been helpful to have wi-fi. Would definitely come back.
We have had a lovely week at Ladybird Lodge. The tennis court is fantastic and so is the gym. We used it a lot. The weather improved, so we were very lucky. Very well equipped cottage.
Two fantastic weeks visiting Kent and its beautiful countryside, coasts, historical towns and even more fantastic to be staying in this lovely and spacious house with all comforts of a family house. Many thanks to owners, you have been very kind.
Thank you very much for a warm welcome to this beautiful cottage. We could not have asked for better accommodation. The tennis court and gym were a big hit. We traveled over for a family wedding and have been the envy of many relatives because of our good fortune to be staying in such a beautiful place. If only the weather had been better. It would have been wonderful to relax, in sunshine, in the garden.
We were delighted with 'Ladybird Lodge', our welcome by the owners and their helpfulness during our stay.
Beautiful spotless lodge with excellent facilities, the owners truly thought of everything.
Fantastic tennis court and gardens, close to many excellent places to visit, even London on the train :) Would definately like to return and would certainly recommend.
I would say that this is one of the best self catering accommodations that we have stayed at.
Every thing we needed was provided. The place was also spotless. Excellent.
It is a property of very high quality and we enjoyed staying there. We stayed there for ten days and loved the calm surrounding and the birds singing from sunrise to sunset. It is just great.
My wife, daughter and I spent 7 nights in this cottage, it is the perfect place to get away from the big cities and busy streets yet close enough to supermarkets and main line railway as to provide easy access to both London and the coast. The cottage was immaculate and the owners friendly and easy to talk to. It was spacious and clean and easily fit a family of 4. I will be returning to the cottage every time I visit England.
We enjoyed staying here - very peaceful, clean, warm and relaxing. Well equipped too!
