Greeted with warm mince pies and an even warmer welcome, this was a very special stay in the heart of Kent. Sean and Corinna have thought of everything to ensure their guests' comfort and relaxation - they could not be more generous and warm-hearted hosts. The garden cottage is beautifully furnished, drinks and nibbles laid out ready, the bed fabulously comfortable and a bathroom both spacious and stylish. Freshly baked bread and a yummy breakfast set us up for the day, but more than anything, the delights of Godwin House are the hosts themselves. We departed feeling that we had made new friends and, I kid you not, with our next stay booked in the diary.
