We loved it. It's ideally located for eating out and everywhere is easy to get to with your bus passSheila Steele - 6th October 2018
Could not have been happier. Excellent place to stay near to everywhere we wished to go. That Acorn was impeccable. Very clean and lovely inside. Both bedrooms were excellent. Both had ensuite bathrooms. Location was perfect. Colin Galloway - 1st October 2018
We stayed at this lovely apartment and enjoyed it very much. Our experience was good and we want to make sure others are aware of what a great rental property this is. - 29th September 2018
We (two adults, two children of 12 and 14 years) were warmly welcomed by the owners who live right next door! They have explained everything important to the functions of the devices in the apartment and also us. informed about shopping and good restaurants nearby. They were always very friendly and helpful, if you have any questions about the environment. The apartment is comfortably furnished and attractively designed. Crockery and cutlery are available in sufficient quantity for four people. Especially beautiful and quaint are the well-preserved historic stone walls made of flint! The property is a great starting point for all kinds of activities - be it to the beaches in the area (especially beautiful Joss Bay but also Minnis Bay in Birchington itself - there you can eat well with very nice sea view!) Or the numerous historical sites and Places in Kent (Canterbury, Sandwich, Leeds Castle ... etc). London could also be reached by train from Birchington Station in two hours (driving during the week AFTER 800 AM, which significantly reduces costs!)! When traveling by car, however, you always have more time than expected or as the Navi indicates - the roads are sometimes so narrow that two cars do not pass each other or in such a happy state (comparable to dirt roads in Germany) ). The beautiful Quex Park with the Quex House and the Powell-Cotton Museum is within walking distance of the apartment (about 900 m). Our children and we were very excited about this great and varied holiday and will be back!flory - 27th July 2018
All Very Good.Ms Janet Everett - 16th July 2018

The owners were very welcoming and helpful. It is a good centre for exploring the area. Miss Jane Hall - 8th October 2017
