Wonderfully clean, peaceful and wonderful hosts. I will be going back. Susan was very helpful putting child gates on the stairs and a Thomas duvet on the single bed. Lovely having sheep outside the window as well.

Management response:

Thank you so much, see you soon.

A very pleasant three night stay between our flight from Australia and the start of our cruise from Dover. The cottage is very comfortable and Susan did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable. Delightful location with views of the sheep and fields and lovely to see the pheasants from our window.

Management response:

Thank you for staying at Shaws Farm Cottage, we really enjoyed meeting you both and hope that you had a really lovely time on your cruise.
