“luxurious cosiness”
Reviewed 15 May 2011

We stayed in Gardeners Cottage which was very cosy and pretty with a lovely back patio and garden to enjoy. The cottage is 18th century on the outside with all mod cons on the inside, losing none of it's cottage charm. The dish washer was a real treat too! Upon our arrival there were flowers in a vase, a hamper that included farm fresh eggs, bread, biscuits, tea, coffee and bubbly! All very welcoming. Fully stocked kitchen where everything was thought of. We were provided with very helpful information before our arrival too.
Excellent location to explore Canterbury and East Kent. We visited Whitstable, Sandwich, Deal, Canterbury and Dover within easy driving distance. Lovely organic farm shop 2 mins walk away and good pub just 5 mins walk. Highly recommend this cottage.

We stayed in the Stables cottage. Anne and Rob had thought of absolutely everything. It has been finished to an excellent standard- it is absolutely lovely. We didn't want to leave. Our hosts were very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble- they'll even get you food if you don't feel like cooking or there is a fantastic organic farm shop just down the road. The cottage also has its own patio area overlooking a fabulous garden- perfect for relaxing breakfasts or evening meals. The cottages are ideally located for sightseeing into Canterbury, Sandwich, Whistable, Deal or just exploring the beautiful local villages and countryside. We had a wonderful holiday!

We had a lovely stay at the Stables Cottage, it was nicely decorated and spotlessly clean with everything you could wish for. There was also a lovely private patio and garden - ideal for a glass of wine of an evening! The central location was good and there is a pretty village with a few places to eat a mile down the road. The owners were very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay and we would highly recommend it to anyone.

We loved to stay in the cottage. We stayed in the cottage the Stables wich felt like home. We stayed with our 18months old daughter who also enjoyed her stay cause she could crawl free through te cottage. The owners were very helpfull with everything you need.The garden at the house is also very lovely, when the temperature is nice you can take a seat outside and enjoy your meal or just a cup of thea. The location of the cottage is also perfect just 30min ride from the ferry or tunnel and also near the lovely city canterbury or the coastline. There is also a shop near the cottage were you can get almost everything especially their fresh bread is delicious. Conclusion a perfect cottage to stay with two adults and a young child. We definitely recommend this to friends and family.

Garderner's cottage: Very tasteful interior in this newly build cottage which makes you feel at home right away. The house has everything you need and extra's. The owners are very helpful and nice. They provide good information and prepared diners for microwave if you want any. The bus stop is nearby (100 mtr). Good to reach. Definitely a perfect place to stay for 2.
