Had high expectations after all the glowing reviews and was not disappointed. Very clean, glorious uninterrupted sea views. Didn't need the log burner, since weather was very warm. Breakfast on the patio every morning. Unbeatable value for money - nice welcome pack - more than just tea and coffee. Very friendly owners. Enjoyed a soak in the bath tub watching...

Location could absolutely not be bettered, gorgeous views across the channel and lovely clifftop walks. A really high quality rental with many thoughful extra touches from the owners who are charming. Cannot wait to return but may have to wait awhile due to the popularity of this cottage - deservedly so. Would highly recommend.

This is a beautiful place and the accommodation is wonderful. It was everything I had hoped for and more. We spent 3 days exploring the local area and folkestone and was a pleasure to return to this lovely retreat. The weather was a bonus too. The owners are helpful and friendly should you need any help on your stay.
