"Had a lovely stay - welcoming owners. Even received a cake, eggs and bacon on arrival. Beautiful cottage with lovely garden."

April 2015 - Mr A. Santos

"We we're both very impressed with the quality and comfort of the Hen House. The owners couldn't be more helpful and we felt totally at home even our chocolate Lab! The nearby village was a delight with two lovely pubs. Would definitely go again perhaps with our family as they could stay in the adjoining building."

December 2014 - G. Young

"Fantastic, clean environment, even a lovely cake baked for when we arrived. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone. Very welcoming and always willing to help out or give you anything you need."

February 2014

"Amazing experience, fantastic people, fantastic accommodation, just what my husband and I were looking for and we will definitely go again x"

February 2014

"10/10 top quality cottage, top quality in all ways - bed/kitchen/bathroom/decor/gorgeous flooring and we are hoping to be back soon! Nice and quiet but handy location. Owners were really helpful - advising on places to eat (the chippy in nearby village was wonderful!) and visit. They are so welcoming and the lovely marble flooring is easy for giving a clean before we left, as the owners kindly allow pets. Whitstable and Maidstone are conveniently nearby (Whitstable on a Sunday is great by the harbour)."

November 2012

"The hen house was a fabulous cottage, we enjoyed our stay start to finish, the owners are so friendly and helpful, felt very welcoming to asking questions or recommendations. The cottage is topped of with thier own eggs, sausage and bacon. Perfect relaxing short UK break."

October 2012

"You found me a wonderful property at the last minute. Made everything easy. I can't think of anything that would improve the service I received. It was brilliant!"

August 2012

"Very cosy cottage, surrounded by beautiful farmland. Perfect for a relaxing break away, just what we needed."
