Judith C,

Would really recommend this property, so convenient for everything.

Mrs Gillian C,

An excellent cottage, beautifully equipped and furnished, impeccably clean. A wonderful welcome and great communication from owner , delicious and thoughtful welcome basket too. Highly recommended and we'd love to stay again!

Miss Nichola S,

The cottage is in a perfect location both for the facilities and restaurants of the High Street and for many historic houses and gardens in the surrounding area. Exceptionally well equipped (very nice welcome basket supplied too). Spotlessly clean .The owner was charming /helpful and we were able to access the cottage early at her suggestion and indeed meet her. The car park permit is a most welcome and essential plus point.A comprehensive information book about the cottage/ emergency numbers etc and an assortment of tourist leaflets very useful. Owner has provided those extra little touches like fresh flowers in the rooms / welcome basket, spare toiletries which make for a delightful stay.

Mrs Susan h,

Immaculate property - everything there you would need for a summer holiday. Great location being on the High Street but set back from the street and felt private. Tenterden is such a nice town anyway with a good variety of shops, cafes etc. all in a few mins walk from the property.

Mr Ian H,

Fabulous property.
