    Location of the property is great for exploring Canterbury and surrounding areas. Owner was friendly and welcoming. Overall the property is very tired and in need of a bit of tlc. This didn’t effect our stay however it would have made it more likely for us to return another time. There is a leak in the bathroom which we were told about but meant that the floor was constantly wet and slippery. The garden was great for the dog although doors in and out of the property are very difficult to close. Ideal for a couple or someone who just needs a base to travel from.

    The cottage was clean and well-equipped, but it was quite tired and in need of some updating. The garden was in the shade pretty much all the time and it was quite untidy. There was a distinct smell of dog in the cottage, particularly in the conservatory which meant we didn't really use that room. The TV and kettle both broke when we were on holiday, but the owners were helpful and did sort the issues out as soon as they could. The cottage is in a village but there are no amenities other than a pub, but the location of the cottage is perfect for visiting Canterbury, Dover and the coast.

    Really enjoyed our stay, thankyou to the owners who were helpful and friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. A few little things are looking tired such as the sofas and the TV but everything worked fine. Couldnt figure out if there was a blind in the attic room which might be worth people checking if they need all the rooms. Pub across the road excellent. Cottage on the main road so very easy to get around the local area. Other reviews say the cottage was noisy because of traffic but we didn’t notice this particularly ... especially not at night.

    Nice house but location isn't best because 50 yards away from very busy roundabout where constantly car /ambulance running day /night. House is clean but the floor anywhere is creaking and some bed also it's very disappointed.

    Lovely , warm cottage, everything you needed for a relaxing break, close enough to Canterbury and a 5 minute drive to the beach . Nice secure garden for children or pets, though an outside light would be a bonus.

    Excellent location for the Pub & buses to Margate & Canterbury.No shops but that did not bother us.

    A comfortable and homely place to return to after a busy day out and about.
