    Lovely Barn conversion, very comfortable and spacious. Lovely outlook over a pear orchard. A rural location but, that is what we wanted. Friendly helpful owners who were on hand if you needed anything.

    Our second visit to this lovely cottage. Spotlessly clean with everything you need for the perfect stay. Lovely, peaceful surroundings and kind attentive owners. Loved my afternoon tea sitting by the pear orchard. What could be better.



    out of 10

    We had an extended stay at Plovers Rest in between moving houses and I don't think we could have found a better place if we searched the net for a year! Phillip and Judy are the perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. A beautifully quiet location, with a 10 minute stroll to the sea wall and just a mile from Upchurch with its excellent co-op store and post office. If you need to chill out, this is the place!



    out of 10

    We stayed here for an extended period in between moving houses. Phillip and Judy could not be more welcoming and helpful during a quite stressful time for us. We have stayed in many holiday cottages during our 44 years of marriage and none of them come close to Plovers Rest. In a word, perfect.
