“Peaceful cosy retreat in lovely location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

This cute cottage is a perfect base to explore the area or recharge your batteries amidst quite countryside, in a pretty garden setting. It is beautifully decorated and, although small, it feels very light and restful. The weather was wet and windy, but we were nice and warm inside. We visited some vineyards / cider places for free tastings, at Biddenden and Chapel Down, and also explored the coast around Rye and Dungeness, which are worth visiting. There is plenty to do in the area. We can thoroughly recommend Little Mistletoe.

“Idyllic getaway cottage”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

It was already dark when we arrived at the cottage, so we couldn't see much of the surroundings. It was very very cold by Malaysian standards, however it was warm once we switched on the heater. I didn't expect it to be quite small, but it was fully equipped with kitchen utensils, TV, video tapes, internet connection, magazines & books to read. You won't be bored for sure. The next day when we drove into Canterbury town, it was certainly a scenic drive, I simply love the vibrant colours of autumn leaves. The owners were simply wonderful and were always checking on us to make sure that we were ok. Realising that my son was a fan of the Arsenal football club, they went an extra mile to provide us with Arsenal's programme book and a souvenir. It was a pity that we couldn't spend more time at the cottage since it was too short a trip. We would certainly return to the cottage, given the chance to do so. Thank you Dianne and family for a most memorable stay.

“Rural idyll in Kent for a couple”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

A beautiful cottage in a perfect verdant setting. It feels like you're outside even when you're sitting at the table. Light & airy & comfortable for a couple, a wonderfully relaxing place. We had the fire on once & it heated up the cottage quite quickly. Double bed comfortable & warm. Didn't use TV (in bedroom) but Wifi excellent. We were lucky enough to be able to buy the owner's own apple juice & eggs. Owner is next door - available but private.
A great central location for touring, with easy access to main routes. Immediate vicinity hilly on beautiful North Downs, but flatter terrain further afield. We cycled, often using the abundant cycle routes, some right on the coast; there are plenty of quiet lanes. It would be a good area for walking too. Good central location for touring by car.
We didn't eat out that much, & were sorry we didn't use the pubs in nearby villages to sample the local ales! We did use the Co-op in Wye & can recommend Tiny Tim's Tea Rooms (yummy Plump Pilgrims) & La Trappiste (mussels & huge choice of Belgian beers) in Canterbury, & The Pilot in Dungeness for fish & chips.
It was a lovely relaxing holiday, & we would want to hire the cottage again if we returned to Kent.

“An idyllic place to stay if you visiting Kent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The cottage and garden are just splendid. It is well decorated and cosy inside. Got fresh eggs from their chickens for breakfast. Outside there are fruit trees so I made a delicious apple dessert. The owner is helpful and friendly. She gave me good advise how to spend the day. So I went to the Cathedral of Canterbury for the evensong and cycled along the coast. Had the Sunday roast at the Tiger inn just a few minutes from the house. Next day I had to leave to attend a wedding in Rochester. So I will be definitely go back to stay longer. I recommend this cottage for a couple who like to explore the environment in Kent and loves spending time in a garden. There is a good wifi connection so I listened to spotify and read the newspaper on line.
