“Idyllic”
Reviewed 21 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This place was quirky, and so private and away from everything. We wanted accommodation where the whole family could be together for a few nights, and we rented both Hop and Oak cottages. So there we were – ages 6 months to 94 and it was wonderful. We only travelled half an hour to get there but it didn’t matter – we were lucky with the weather, swam in the lake and barbecued and played games in the garden. The family of moorhens on the lake were beautiful and we had daily visits to the garden from a hen and cockerel! The horses also came up to be petted over the garden fence. The two cottages had everything we needed and apart from one drive out to go and look at the animals and have a cream tea at Badgers Hill Farm, we stayed put and relaxed, or had little strolls round the estate. We had a Tesco delivery on the evening we arrived, and the newsagents and the Barn Shop were within walking distance for any bits we had forgotten. Sadly Wendy and Nigel were away on their holiday while we were there (although we had met them when we looked at the cottages prior to booking) , so we couldn't thank them personally, but Tina and Ian were on hand and answered queries in their absence.

“Clean, tidy and practical accomodation”
Reviewed 28 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Nigel was very helpful from the start, and we had a very comfortable stay.

The accommodation was perfect for all our needs, and reasonably priced. The setting was lovely and it was a shame we did not have time to explore it more thoroughly

“Lovely country retreat”

We loved our short stay at Hop Cottage. It was much larger than I anticipated which was great for a party of 8.

The surrounding countryside is lovely and peaceful.

Nigel & Wendy were very accommodating as we arrived earlier than anticipated.

Would definitely recommend staying at Hop Cottage and you should visit Whitstable Oyster Co. restaurant where I had the best native oysters I've ever tasted- absolutely delicious food and wine!

“Lovely cottage”
Reviewed 25 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Lovely cottage in a stunning location. So easy to get lots of places - Canterbury, Whitstable (recommended) and the local rare breeds farm. Great place for a family to stay. We'll be back.
