Very well laid out and furnished property in good location.Mr John Mason - 9th October 2018
Excellent holiday cottage inside the stunning countryside of Kent, with lovely sunsets from the property lounge overlooking open green fields. The hosts are fantastic, and always willing to help. We will definitely go back again soon and certainly is the best cottage we have ever stayed in.Mr Alexander Laine - 29th May 2018
Kind people. Nice Welcome. Good bedding. Very lightly.Mrs Catherine Allain - 15th May 2018

A lovely well equipped property with lots to see and do in the region. Mrs Rachel Bickerdike - 30th September 2017
Riverside cottage was the perfect location for visiting major historic properties in Kent such as Leeds Castle and Canterbury. Owners were very welcoming and a delight to meet as our hosts. Every comfort detail had been considered with breakfast provisions and cake to have with a cup of tea. Being close to the Farriers Arms was a plus which provided a great menu and selection of wines. All the facilities were presented in excellent condition and the accommodation imaculately presented. We would highly recommend Riverside cottage for a relaxing stay in this beautiful part of Kent. Thanks for making our stay memorable. Mr R Ratcliffe - 13th September 2017
Thanks for providing such a lovely and comfortable place to stay during our visit to Kent.

Thanks for making us feel so welcome.Robert & Peter, Melbourne Australia - 6th September 2017
Loved it.Mr M Helliwell - 6th September 2017
We have enjoyed a lovely, relaxing week at Riverside Cottage. Making the most of the good weather with visits to Rye, Canterbury, Leeds Castle, Hever Castle, The War Memorial, A vineyard and the White Cliffs of Dover. There was so much more we could have done too! The cottage is a home from home, very comfortable and well equipped, although we ate out on the whole, including a very nice meal at the Farriers across the road, very handy! Thank you for your hospitality, we will certainly recommend Riverside Cottage to family and friends.Rachel & Tony - South Cumbria - 19th August 2017
Thanks so much to Viv and Tony for providing a comfortable "Bolt Hole" for 2 weeks enabling us to visit local family, friends and old drinking hole. This was the perfect place to relax and get ready to our return to our African adventures. Thanks for making us so welcome.Vince & Jacqui - 5th August 2017
Thank you for a lovely break. The cottage is wonderful with everything we needed. Lovely view over the pumpkin fields. BBQ was well used and we enjoyed a few beers as well. Lovely lobster salad at Griggs in Hythe. Lots more to see and do, we hope to be back soon. Thanks again.Chris & Jan - 15th July 2017
We enjoyed our stay very much, the location was lovely and the pub convenient and welcoming. A recommendation for any one wanting a peaceful retreat for a few weeks.Mrs Sarah Gray - 10th July 2017

We had a really lovely time there. The accommodation was delightful & the hosts were welcoming & kind. Kent is a beautiful county & we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I would certainly recommend Riverside Cottage to othersMrs J Harding - 12th May 2017
We stayed in Riverside cottage during the February half term. Without hesitation we would recommend this cottage to anyone wishing to visit the Kent region, not only is it ideally situated for discovering this beautiful area (or even a day trip to France!) but the cottage itself was exceptional. We felt very welcomed by the owners who have created a real home from home. They have put their hearts and souls into this property and everything in the cottage is of a very high standard with lovely homely touches. We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for a really lovely holiday.Chris Loach - 16th March 2017
We have enjoyed one week in this lovely, cosy and clean cottage. Kent is a beautiful place and offers lots to see and to visit. Thank you and we hope to come back once again.Mr E Plozza - Switzerland - 8th March 2017
Lovely property and hosts. Perfect retreat for relaxing or visiting the Kent countryside.Mr M Draisey - 24th December 2016
This was an outstanding property, very well appointed and comfortable. The view across the fields was wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.Mr Michael Jarvis - 22nd November 2016
We really enjoyed our stay, the location was very quiet but accessible for shopping and days out.mrs KATRINA CLARK - 25th October 2016
If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern urban life this is an almost ideal ""idyllic retreat"". Looking out over fields and with birdsong the only thing disturbing your peace you'll find the owners, ideal hosts i.e. unobtrusive but there with help when the occasion demands. And this part of Kent is full of places to visit, castles galore, old Cinque ports, the sea for a paddle or swim - and even a designer retail outlet in Ashford, if that is your world.Dr R Rice - 5th October 2016
Thank you for a lovely stay. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped. We enjoyed watching the sun go down over the fields during the evenings. We managed to visit Canterbury, Deal and Hever Castle all of which we enjoyed with lovely sunny weather. Thank you for the welcome pack which was very kind and welcomingMiss L from Norfolk - 9th September 2016

Received a very warm welcome from the owner.Extremely well furnished comfortable property, lived up to and above our expectations.Mrs Karen Holman - 21st June 2016
The cottage is ideal for a quiet peaceful holiday with many places to explore. The cottage is excellent and the service we received was very good and helpful. The area has much to offer with lots of historical places to visit and wonderful countryside to explore.Mr Hooker - 4th June 2016
