An excellent venue in an idyllic spot. Worked perfectly as a base for a wedding at Odo's Barn.Mrs L Hicken - 18th September 2015
We stayed at Lanary Oast. It was a lovely property in a delightful setting. It was also centrally placed for a variety of activities and visits. We have already recommended it to friends and family.Mrs Miller from Isle of Wight - 5th September 2014
Lovely country house, quiet and relaxing atmosphere and surrounding. Good spot to make trips to different places in Kent, like Canterbury, Sissinghurst, Dover castle, Rye, etc., very nice and helpful ownerMrs Machate-Weiss from Germany - 30th May 2014
For the second time around we enjoyed the house, the surroundings, shopping and visiting museums in London and Ashford, walking in the neighbourhood and we loved the warm welcome.van der Schaaf family, Netherlands - 11th December 2008
We enjoyed exploring Kent and it is always a pleasure to come back to this lovely house. Canterbury and Dover were good days out, also Battle, Rye and Rochester.Lim family, Singapore - 11th December 2008
We had a wonderful time in the converted oast house. Visited Dover, Canterbury, Hastings, London and Leeds Castle. The kids loved the dogs - we missed them when we came home.Duyzer family - 11th December 2008
Fabulous house in a tranquil setting. Excellent base for exploring the local area. Friendly and helpful hostsAdrian, Clare, Thomas and William, Suffolk - 11th December 2008
As two seasoned travellers, who rent property in the U.K. every year, we have, in the past, always been disappointed with the standard of accommodation. This time has been different. We have found the house excellent, well appointed and in a wonderful location. The owners have been perfect, unobtrusive and very helpful. A truly 5 star establishment. Well done!John & Lynette Styles - 18th August 2007
The best holiday rent we have ever had, every one friendly and helpful. Beautiful, comfortable and well maintained house in an interesting part of England. When we win the lottery we will make an offer for this property- lock stock and dogs.Diaper family - 26th May 2007
Delightful oast house; clean , comfortable and warm. Thank you for the delightful welcome pack. Often seen oast houses but never expected to stay in one. Learnt a lot about the history of them from your book.Simpson family - 10th March 2007
