These cottages have been refurbished to a very high standard, they are very well equipped, comfortable, spotlessly clean and have lovely uninterrupted views to the Thames where ships are travelling back and forwards. Dogs have their own area close to the cottages and there are lovely walks without the car. The children's play area and leisure facilities are excellent. We have stayed here many times at different times of the year and Rochester is an excellent place to visit, Dickens world and the Chatham Dockyard are great for a day out with excellent restaurants and outlet shopping. Everyone is very helpful and friendly but if you want to be independent it is your choice. We would recommend Stable Cottages to any age group.
We visited in May as a family and had a fabulous time, great location, very family friendly. Owned very welcoming and helpful. Very peaceful and tranquil. The children loved the games room, swimming pool and outside play area. Cottages were very clean and comfortable and had everything you need for your stay. Would love to stay again.
Myself and family, including two grandchildren stayed here for 3 nights. I didn't book until week before, and Kirsty was very helpful. Lovely clean and comfortable accommodation, with loads of outdoor space for grandchildren to run around. We were lucky enough to have the pool to ourselves, and also made use of the games room which is well stocked. Visited Diggerland which is close by, and also the festival at Rochester where we had a lovely meal in the evening (Brettingtons). There's also a nice family pub fairly close to cottages with attractions for children. Enjoyed the complimentary wine and surprise ice-cream van visit! The only downside was a peculiar background noise which may have been a boiler? We noticed at night once the house was quiet and a couple of us did have trouble trying to blot it out, but we are light sleepers. We would definitely book again (and take ear plugs!). Thank you Debbie and Kirsty for making our stay so nice.
Just relaxing in one of the 4 bed Cottages thought I'd send the link to a friend as it's so lovely here. I was just trolling the reviews when I re read the ones written by some one saying how awful it was. I think they have got the wrong Stable Cottages. The owners are lovely, as are all the family we have met. They couldn't be more helpful or obliging. They owners certainly do like dogs and all the people here staying with dogs haven't found it unpleasant or difficult to keep them on a lead or controlled. Yes they ask that they don't run around off the lead and that they clean up after them, but who wouldn't with other guests and animals around. The Cottages are immaculately and clean well appointed, the games room, swimming pool and sauna are an added bonus with 3 boys to keep happy.
We have just returned from a lovely long weekend at Stable Cottages. Fantastic situation with great views, we thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet. We stayed in one of the 4 bedroom cottages, which was great for all 3 generations and our dog. The dog walking area was a good size for our 9 month old Labrador, she loved running around and playing ball.
Any problems we had were quickly dealt with.
Just returned home from yet another short break at Stable Cottages. What a wonderful place! When we need to relax this is the place to go. Long walks to Egypt bay along the Thames Estuary with a flask and my book made for the perfect weekend and to top it off, being able to return to the cottage and do yoga by the poolside and have a long steam in the steam room is bliss :) The review before cannot be about the same place! Our dogs are always made most welcome and enjoy the long walks. The family are always so accommodating and the newly renovated cottage was beautiful. Every time we go back it gets better! We'll see you again soon. Thanks again!
We stayed in a 4 bed cottage with friends of ours over the NYE weekend. The cottage was well equipped, clean and the staff were extremely helpful. We enjoyed the indoor pool which was warm and clean. We enjoyed our stay so much that we've just booked to come back!
