“Wonderful stay in rural Kent”
Reviewed 6 June 2012

We stayed for two nights when attending a wedding at Coldharbour Farm. Lois came to our rescue when our booking in Charing was cancelled at the last minute. We were made very welcome after our long journey with tea and freshly made cup cakes. The place was spotless and beautifully furnished. We had a delicious English breakfast with home made bread and marmalade. Andrew and Lois were lovely hosts and we are hoping to visit again.

This is the most beautiful, characterful cottage; very well located for exploring Pluckley and the surrounding area, with lovely rooms and a gorgeous garden. Breakfast was made to order and delicious. Lois and Andrew made us feel genuinely welcome.

We stayed for a night and everything was lovely. Lois greeted us with a pot of tea and cake and was very friendly. Our room overlooked the duckpond and although there is a road outside there is very little noise. This B and B is on the outskirts of Pluckley, but the village is walkable for the able bodied. Breakfast was lovely the next morning, with local products, all in all a really nice stay.

We had four wonderful days at Bow Cottage. The hosts Lois and Andrew and their two lovely Irish setters are very welcoming, kind and helpful. The rooms are clean and very beautiful. The garden with its pond is also nice to look at. The whole place has a very pleasant, classy atmosphere and is extremely comfortable. We also enjoyed the traditional English Breakfast which was delicious. If we ever return to Kent, we´ll make sure we´ll be staying at Bow Cottage again!

We received a very warm welcome from great hosts. Our accommodation was first class. Everything spotless and extremely comfortable. Stayed two nights - breakfasts superb and our three course home cooked dinners were absolutely delicious. Great location. Will certainly return and would highly recommend it.

We stayed at Bow Cottage for a family Wedding, and found the hosts Lois and Andrew warm and welcoming, the rooms and breakfast were first class. We were fortunate enough to enjoy time outside on the patio enjoying the company of the 2 dogs who are georgeous. The garden has a large pond with numerous ducks on it. The location is quiet and relaxing, we stayed in one of the rooms overlooking the main road and did not notice the traffic at all. The surrounding area is a wonderful place to explore with a lot of history. We will certainly be back again in the near future. The lounge and breakfast room were equally as relaxing and as clean as the the bedrooms
