"We enjoyed a wonderful holiday at Church Lodge, Snargate. On arrival we were greeted by the owner who explained the facilities to us. On entering we were pleased to find a welcome pack with loads of goodies. The lodge was comfortable and well equipped with everything you could need. Best of all was the location in a small hamlet. The Lodge had a decking area which looked out onto fields and my wife and I spent a lovely time watching the rabbits and pheasants. Also to the side was a small brook which contained ducks and on one occasion a swan. Anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday would do well to book Church Lodge in Snargate. Highly recommended."

"Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality, and letting us share this corner of paradise. It is the perfect retreat from the London hubub- seeing green for miles(and yellow) is so restful for the eyes and the soul. It will be hard going back to London! The boys loved being outdoors, seeing the sheeps, pheasants, doves and ducks. We were spoilt with the weather, and by you. Thank you for the biscuits, chocolates and a fridge almost full."
