“Beautiful cottage, pleasant stay :-)”Simon-Creasey - 25th November 2018

Our third visit, would not hesitate to recommend.Mrs Nola Marshall - 2nd September 2018
The cottage was beautifully appointed, spacious and comfortable. We visited in January and again in April. Both times we needed our boots as the property is on a farm road! Would recommend doing a supermarket shop online and having it delivered. If you like coastal towns, Hastings and Whitstable are definitely worth a day each.Mrs Marianne Barber - 19th April 2018
We were snowed in last week for several days but the owner and her daughter, who live in the lane, were helpful, checking on us, and we were able to stay an extra night fortunately. Mrs Nola Marshall - 5th March 2018
