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 hatchard - 3rd September 2018
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 Hodson - 27th July 2018
Fabulous property.Mrs Julia Baynes - 22nd July 2018
We had a wonderful weekend - the hosts are fantastic and the local tips were really helpful. The cottage is beautiful, so clean, lovely layout, spacious and all the amenities you would need. We could not fault it, we've had a lovely, relaxing break. Branco & Catherine Machin. North London. Branco & Catherine Machin. North London - 28th November 2017
We just loved our stay at the cottage. It's comfortable and cosy, a home away from home. Karen and Brian made us feel very welcome, they live next door which makes contact easy but they respect your privacy. A perfect little gem! Eleonora Eppens, Netherlands - 14th November 2017
We really enjoyed our stay in Tenterden. The cottage is beautifully renovated, with a lot of original details remaining - but equipped with everything you would expect or could need for a pleasant stay (including some firewood for the stove :-)). The location is perfect, too - a lot of nice shops and places to eat within walking distance (some right across the street even) and a parking lot behind the house. Karen and Brian were very friendly and quick to reply to our messages. They were kind enough to pick us up from the bus stop when we arrived in the dark and even made sure there was something to eat in the kitchen, just in case we would arrive after the shops closed. All in all, we would very much recommend a stay in the cottage! Remco Greutnik, Netherlands. - 6th November 2017
Karen and Brian's beautifully restored cottage in the centre of town, with glorious garden and bird song is a perfect place to stay. We enjoyed every aspect of our visit, from warm hospitality, appreciated treats to superb beds and bedding. Can wholeheartedly give highest recommendation! J Warrington, Chichester - 16th October 2017
We loved the way that the cottage has been laid out. We very quickly felt at home as all the facilities of a modern home are provided in a delightful period cottage. The kitchen is fully equipped but there are plenty of good eating places in Tenterden. One thing to be careful of is the staircase to the first floor. This is a spiral staircase with narrow width steps and requires care for anyone with limited mobility. The bedrooms and beds are very comfortable. We loved it so much we are booking for next year”B Chick, Newhaven - 6th October 2017
