    An enjoyable stay. Beds were comfy and kitchen equipped OK. One point though; the oven was a mini one and couldn't be used at same time as the rings,..difficult if cooking a meal. Hosts were friendly and welcoming. Brochure stated 'pub within a mile', but the pub in Paddock Wood was a very seedy affair and not at all suitable for a meal there. We had to drive several miles to eat out.

    The owners are lovely and left flowers milk and homemade shortbread as a welcome. The cottage is in a beautiful location and well equipped. However the mattresses on the beds were very uncomfortable and the walls of cottage very thin so was very noisy especially as owners are early risers.

    Nice little cottage for 2. The owners are lovely, friendly and approachable, and make darn good shortbread. If you're not interested in the many local National Trust properties then it could be difficult finding enough things to keep you occupied. The cottage was pleasantly arranged and comfortable, with everything a visitor needs. As an older person with a dodgy hip I found the shower difficult to use. If I go again I'll take a kick step with me.

    Had a really lovely time in the cottage. It was perfect for my needs. It was slightly out of the way but the owner Bill drove me into the village every morning which helped me hugely.

    Very welcoming people, gave us delicious home made shortbread. The cottage was comfortable but a lot of evidence of poor DIY works. Poor cooker as it was a counter top model with a very small oven and only two rings. The garden showed good promise for a summer stay. Local town a few minutes drive away with good local shops and supermarket.
