This cottage is a must visit. It is immaculately clean and provides everything you need. It has stunning views from every window. Soooooo quiet and relaxing. You cant hear a car or a noisy neighbour, just the odd bird call or a sheep bleet. Heaven. A lovely little sun trap patio with chairs where you can drink in the views. It is a short distance to many places of interest, hythe is a lovely town. We recommend the nearby pub The Tiger Inn, very pretty, traditional and cosy.
The cottage owners are very friendly and accomodating. We have visited twice now, home from home.....but better!

“Excellent, peaceful, comfortable retreat.”
Reviewed 7 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Have just spent a relaxing Easter weekend at this property. It is our second return and one that was just as good as the first visit in 2013 and last year too. Susan is happy to help with anything at all, and her attention to detail regarding the amenties is at a very high standard. It is so nice to arrive somewhere and find the fridge stocked with milk and eggs for example. All the rooms are spotlessly clean and well looked after. The property is very peaceful with typical farm views. Car essential.

“A charming experience of rural Kent.”
Reviewed 5 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This delightful accommodation is kept to the best of standards. It is very comfortable. There is everything you need for a short or long stay. Wi-Fi works . The owners are incredibly helpful and welcoming- nothing is too much trouble. Although relatively secluded the cottage is attached to the owner's property.This is a small working farm with sheep. It is situated under the north downs, ideal for all outdoor pursuit, near to quintessential English villages such as Stowting. If you want to stay in the view from the living room and bedroom is delightful and relaxing. Local pubs abound and again are all worth a visit.
You will need a car and not be put off by single track roads - all perfectly manageable.
If you want a taste of the idyllic country life but still in very easy reach of Folkestone, Hythe, Ashford and Canterbury, this is one for you.
