“Great hospitality, lovely setting, charming hosts”
Reviewed 12 June 2012

The photos don't do justice to how lovely the place is, but I suppose the hosts make the big difference with their warmth and willingness to accommodate all my special requests! I loved the room which had everything I could possibly have needed, lovely bedding and towels and the extra few touches made it very comfortable. The setting was really pretty in the apple orchards, lovely and quiet and the house itself is clearly a labour of love with many, many hours/months of very hard work to restore. The breakfast was delicious with a very good choice - even for my dietary requirements. Only problem was that we didn't stay longer... but will do next time.

Lovely B&B, lots of character, comfortable and clean. We arrived late and Simon and Maggie kindly booked a table at the Poet, thank you we enjoyed it. Look forward to the rest of our time here.

The perfectly renovated old cottage is a real gem, the orchards around it and the wild rabbits make it a really peacefull place for relaxing/ a nice break. Simon and Maggie are simply adorable and very helpful when one needs advice on what to do in the area...
The rooms are very warmly+cozy decorated...and the breakfast is simply gorgeous: the best fruit salad I have ever had:-))

Arrived in the pitch dark after a sat nav failure having been "talked in" by Simon. We were warmly welcomed into this lovely and comfortable house. Our hosts were charming and our room was very well appointed. I could not think of anything that had been missed which would have made our stay more comfortable. Very peaceful setting and overlooking the apple orchards as we discovered in the morning. Very good full Kentish Breakfast.

We arrived after a long journey in the dark, following the GPS- We pulled up outside the cottage and were immediately welcomed by Simon. Maggie made us a cup of tea with biscuits - exactly what was needed. We had the downstairs room, en-suite shower, has it's own entrance to the side of the property. The facilities are really well thought out, whether it is the electrical adaptors, fresh fruit, DVD TV, Clock Radio, toiletry items (in case you forgot something), soft drinks and a drop of sherry, as well as the normal coffee/tea making facilities. additionally there is a small fridge, iron and ironing board etc. Simon and Maggie were perfect hosts in their exquisite home. Would strongly recommend. Lovely, cosy bed and peaceful location. Breakfast ingredients were locally sourced, homemade preserves and delicious tomatoes Note: they do not take credit cards (cash or cheque).

Room Tip: Our room was stunning (downstairs by the breakfast room).. Willowpit room

Hosts Simon and Maggie were welcoming, friendly and helpful, without being too intrusive. They have obviously given much thought to providing everything their guests might need, with no skimping on quality. If you forget anything don't worry - you will find it has been provided here. Our large ensuite had it's own outside door, very comfortable beds and furnishing and everything was spotlessly clean. A very quiet location set in apple orchards but easy to reach places in West Kent. A good spot for walkers with footpaths through the orchards and across fields linking with the many lanes and paths in this area. A beautiful old house. Lovely garden and views. Super breakfast.
