    This was one of the best holidays I have taken. The owners were a delight and very helpful. The house was lovely and providing towels and tea towels, cutlery, milk, tea, coffee and a lemon cake on our arrival-just what we needed. I would recommend this cottage to anyone and am seriously considering booking it again.

    A lovely cottage set in the rural Kent landscape. The friendly owners were there to welcome us, with tea,coffee, milk and an extremely delicious lemon drizzle cake. Nothing to complain about in the cottage. It was exactly as we saw on the website.

    Absolutely loved this accomadation! Lisa was really welcoming and helpful. The views were stunning and loved seeing the horses every day. Location was perfect for exploring East Kent, with everywhere we wanted to visit within 45mins. Would definitely go back and recommend it.

    Would highly recommend this property. It was clean and very comfortable and well equipped. The welcome pack was a bonus and as for the homemade lemon drizzle cake in the fridge what more can you ask for. We will definitely be back to Kent and The Bit on the Side is very well located for countryside and coastal Kent. Well worth the stay.

    We had a lovely and friendly welcome from Lisa and Dave. The cottage was super! Very light and fresh, clean and comfy! There was everything we needed in the cottage. We stayed only one week but felt we could have stayed on longer as we were so comfortable.

    The property is in a lovely unspoilt location. We were met by lovely hosts with freshly made cake provided for us in the cottage. What more do you need?
