“Perfect weekend away”
Reviewed 12 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed here in November 2015 for a weekend break. The Hayloft is a short drive from Canterbury and the coast but you really do not need to leave the house! It has three good sized rooms, one en suite and a large bathroom. It is immaculate. The owners are really friendly and checked that we had everything on arrival. We loved spending time in the sitting room watching TV and playing games. Would definitely return.

“What a great place to stay!”
Reviewed 13 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

A superb holiday home, equipped with everything you could possibly need! The kitchen was well equipped and spacious. The bedrooms were perfect too; the beds were very comfortable and bedding of a high quality!
Richard and Lyndsey were we're welcoming, helpful and friendly. They even lent us a bike to use while we were there. They also have a wicked sense of humour!!
A good central position in Kent enabling visits to Whitstable, Margate, Broadstairs and Canterbury!
Great place! Keep up the good work!

“Perfect location, perfect accommodation, perfect hosts”
Reviewed 30 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The standard of the Hayloft is absolutely superb with attention to every detail. The hosts are so warm and welcoming and this is reflected in every aspect of the accommodation. The honeysuckle girls had a fabulous weekend and feel very privileged to have stayed at this location. Thank you Richard and Lyndsey for being perfect hosts. We will definitely be back. With all our thanks.

“Perfectly scenic and relaxing stay”
Reviewed 11 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed, as a three generation family, at the lovely Hayloft for 7 days. It was relaxing and enjoyable, with just enough nearby for the babies to enjoy their stay whilst also being calm and serene enough for the older generations! Richard and Lindsay were more than accommodating and assisted us with everything we needed (although most of the information you could need is outlined in helpful folders in the dining area). The twenty minute journey into Canterbury was ideal and allowed my partner and I to enjoy an evening out at the Lady Luck and even attend an impromptu Jive class! Overall a wonderful stay and I would highly recommend.

“Excellent holiday home, disabled friendly.”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

My husband and I and family, stayed at The Hayloft last week. We had a very enjoyable holiday. The Hayloft is fantastic accomodation with everything you could possibly need.
I am disabled, but found everything accessible, with wet room and everything downstairs on one level. We would definitely go again and would certainly recommend to friends.

“A perfect place to unwind”
Reviewed 29 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed at the Hayloft last month. We found it to be a great base in Kent, close to Canterbury as well as the beaches of north Kent, but also within easy reach of London. We were fortunate to have some great weather that meant we were able to have plenty of outside time with a number of barbeques for visiting friends. The cottage is extremely well equipped and the very helpful owners are on-site and able to deal with any questions and offer advice on places to visit and things to do. During our stay we were able to take the children to Tenterden and a trip on the Kent and East Sussex Railway - a really quaint and fun day out. We certainly hope that we are able to return next year and would have no hesitation in recommending The Hayloft to other travellers.
