“What a gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

A great find. Very welcoming, crisp sheets, spotlessly clean, Mary could not have been more helpful. We had a blown tyre on our trailer and she offered to give us one she had in the shed! Exceptional service. Had to leave early so just had continental breakfast but "stoned" prunes were the promise of something good to come!

Stayed July 2014, travelled as a couple

Pigeonwood House was a great find! Set in the peaceful hills above Folkestone it is surrounded by farmland. The views from the guest bedroom window across the fields to the English Channel and on to France were spectacular. The room we stayed in was large and very comfortable. Mary was a genial hostess. Would highly recommend Pigeonwood House for anyone looking for accommodation in the Folkestone/Dover area for whatever reason.

Fantastic welcome from Mary who made us very welcome and even got up early to get us an excellent cooked breakfast when she leant the time of our euro tunnel crossing. Room was large and very clean with smashing views over the downs and to the French coast. Bathroom was a little smaller but adequate. Had sole use of a large and well furnished residents lounge with a good size TV. Plenty of safe and secure parking. Be warned though the lanes to this lovely bed and breakfast are very narrow and steep. Mary suggested a local pub, the cat and custart pot for our evening meal which as also nice and sensible priced

Arriving tired and muddy after walking the rainy North Downs Way, we were taken in and cared for by Mary who took care of our every need and then some, even driving us to the local pub for dinner. Best hospitality ever, and the location, with superb views is incredibly restful. Highly recommended if you are looking for a peaceful country stay.
