Lovely location in the country, the hosts provided a good english breakfast in their lovely house. We stayed in the Oast House, which turned out to be adjacent to the road. This can be busy with fast moving traffic going past only a couple of feet from the headboard!
The family provided earplugs in the room, which we found to be somewhat ineffective. The amenities in the room were great, though, we have no compaints about the service we received.
We would happily stay there again, but make sure that the Garden Room is booked instead.

Garden Cottage with its peg tiled roof and weatherboarding is pure Kentish style. Exposed beams and antique furniture create a welcoming and interesting space, relaxing and private. Godwin’s Oast House is special. There’s nowhere like it. You are in the heart of Kent’s history and rural life but with en-suite comfort,fine furnishings, king sized sleigh bed and mod cons. Breakfast is the best of local produce with home baked bread fresh on the day served in our Tudor Morning Room in the house overlooking the views in this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. ... more less
