Very welcoming, farm tour great, pool relaxing, lovely holiday home.Mrs C Green - 25th June 2016
Very homely and comfortable. Peaceful surroundings and fun to watch the animals. A car is needed, but convenient for the centre of Canterbury which is only 2 miles away. The owner is very friendly and helpful and provided a generous welcome pack. This was our second stay and we hope to return.Mr C Hammond - 18th April 2016
