"The apartment has provided us with a fantastic base for exploring Kent. Well equipped and ultra clean. It has been a comfortable stay here in Canterbury, and so convenient to have a car parking space. Some of the places we've really enjoyed have been Dover Castle, Walmer Castle Deal. Sissinghurst was a lovely stop on route to Tunbridge Wells. I have to mention a great meal at Deeson's and the Ancient Raj. Our last night is at M.C at The Abode so I hope it lives up to our great meal at Deeson's. Thanks again, it's been great. Family from Cheshire"

June 2013

"We've had a great week in this brilliantly located flat - after narrowly avoiding destroying the top box on the car in the underground car park when we arrived !!! the flat has had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Thanks very much. We have been staying here with a 4 year old and a 10 month old and have been spoilt for choice for things to do. We definately recommend the Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway. The Battle of Britain Memorial, Dover Castle ( especially the underground tunnels experience ). Samphire Hoe, Lower Leas Coastal park, Wingham Wildlife park, ( feed the meerkats, walk with flamingoes ). The Shell grotto in Margate, I could go on and on. Hopefully we'll be back soon to do some more sight seeing. A family from Warrington."

June 2013
