“Idyllic hideaway”
Reviewed 29 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Oak Cottage is a beautiful and comfortable holiday rental in a picturesque village in the Kent countryside. Well positioned to explore the surrounding areas but a car is a must, Canterbury, Dover and Whitstable among some of the places we visited. If you fancy a meal in the local area we recommend the Tickled Trout by the river in Wye.
Welcomed from the start by Wendy who owns the cottage with her husband Nigel, we found it to be very peaceful and relaxing. The cottage itself was built in the 90's but has been built to resemble an older cottage. It was well equipped and decorated to a high standard.
The outside lake was very welcoming on a hot day.
The only downside was that the wifi wasn't the best as it was in the middle of nowhere so if you can't live without the internet then you will be lost. All in this was very relaxing break.
PS The plants are growing well Wendy, many thanks.

Thank you for your kind review, we are very glad that you enjoyed your stay in Oak cottage. As you found we do enjoy a very central location for sight seeing in Kent so it is great that you got to see so man of the sights. Rural broad band is not the best if you are used to high speeds but we are looking at a new system via a satellite transmitter that should improve the situation dramatically in the future. Glad the plants have taken and thanks for choosing to stay in Oak Cottage, Wendy and Nigel

“Excellent. Can't be faulted”
Reviewed 24 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

My partner and I have stayed in many hotels and decided instead to opt for a holiday rental instead. Having had a bad experience recently with a cottage we rented we are anxious about our experience of Oak Cottage.
Safe to say our concerns were lifted as soon as we were greeted with Nigel as soon as we arrived. Excellent customer care (esp. when we ran out of butter on a cold wintry night in the middle of nowhere :) !!).
The cottage itself is amazing as are the grounds. To visit in the summer is now on our agenda to see the surrounding gardens in all their glory.
Thank you for making us so welcome

Liked best: The quality of the cottage and its seclusion in the middle of lovely gardens
Liked least: The access to the cottage from the parking is dark at night and we would suggest sensored lighting

“Perfect Position great access to south east U.K.”
Reviewed 13 September 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We stayed in Oak cottage for a whole month, 2 adults, 3 children we all enjoyed the stay and would definitely stay here again, it is perfectly positioned between Canterbury & Ashford. you could be in London or France within an hour depending on your transport choice or enjoy a nice country walk or drive from the property and also close to a number of family friendly attractions, Our hosts Nigel & Wendy took every opportunity to make us feel welcome.
