Second stay at this cottage and hopefully not the last. Felt like second home on this recent visit. Owner very helpful. Would definitely recommend. Mrs Teresa Clowes - 4th March 2019
We can recommend the cottage without restriction!Mr K Frielingsdorf - 9th December 2018
Beautiful cottage in an idyllic location. ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ We recently spend 13 nights at Fairview Cottage and could not speak more highly of the cottage and it's location. The cottage has everything you would want including comfy beds and good heating, along with an open fireplace for those extra cold nights. With a windmill, two pubs and the lovely village of Woodchurch literally on your doorstep, it's a great place to stay! The only slight drawback to the cottage is the low ceiling in the main lounge room which is not ideal for someone very tall (6ft+), but you soon get used to ducking under the ceiling beams :) Date of arrival 09 November 2018 Family A - 15th November 2018
Kind Owner and lovely, cosy property. Perfect location to discover Kent and parts of Sussex.Mrs Rita De Clercq - 17th September 2018
We had a wonderful familiy holiday at Faiview Cottage. It´s equipped with so much love, that you instantly feel at home. Our three children loved to stroll around the fields and visit the sheep. Grandma enjoyed the garden with its flowers. We had a lot of day outs. My mother in law and me joined the Eveningsong at Canterbury Cathedral and the children were happy at the Rare Breeds Farm. It was a perfect family holiday for everyone.Mr Markus Gaub - 28th May 2018
We had a great stay even though the weather was bad at times! The children loved the quirky staircase from the bedroom and the garden was big enough for games. Apart from the Kent and East Sussex Railway Tenterden also has an excellent leisure centre with a good swimming pool to visit on a rainy day. The cottage was well placed for outings to Camber, Hastings and Dymchurch as well as Bodiam Castle (by steam rail). Had the weather been better we would also have visited nearby nature reserves. We would stay here again. Thanks to the owner for ringing and telling us about the footpath past the windmill to give a short cut to the village.Mrs Katherine Shewell - 10th August 2017
Lovely cottage, owner has it very well furnished with period furniture and tasteful decorations. Finding the keys was a bit tricky, but you can't beat this place for location, (2 pubs and shops a short walk away in Woodchurch) and the period cottage is lovely. The furniture is comfortable and there are some great antiques scattered around in keeping with the age of the property. The back garden is a good size and isn't just lawn. Car parking is strict because of neighbouring cottages, but the instructions are very clear. We are looking forward to returning. ThanksFamily Lawson - 6th April 2017
Nice place, nice surroundings, nice pubs, nice weather, nice walks and a nice house.Clients: Trel - 21st October 2016
A beautiful cottage in a great location. Great views and a bonus of being able to walk down to the village. We found the Bonny Cravat pub, don't be put off by the exterior. The pub offers good food at reasonable prices.Sullivan Bond - 10th October 2016
A wonderful week with our grandsons in Kent. We enjoyed the railway and the wonderful garden. Meat from the local butchers is very good. Fred loved the windmill and the train ride. Thanks we will return.Mr & Mrs Jewell & Grandchildren - 30th September 2016
Lovely cottage, beautiful area to explore - Rye especially worth a visit. Local pubs goo too. Only complaints are that cooker needed a good clean and the kitchen windows do not open.Owner response: New more reliable house keeper appointed and extra window keys provided.Clare and Julian Baynes - 23rd September 2016
We have just had a most enjoyable week in Kent, visiting many NT properties and gardens. We enjoyed staying in this attractive and cosy cottage. We were also blessed with sunshine every day. We found the best pub for the food and beer to be the Six Bells in the village - booking essential - noisy at weekends. A trip to the Kings Head in Shadoxhurst is worth it. We will certainly come back again, many thanksGareth Jones - 9th September 2016
Just a short break but very enjoyable. Lovely cottage and a good location. Windmill is an added bonus! Everybody in the village is very friendly. Weather vert hot! Many thanks to Geoff & CoPat Bernard - 5th September 2016
Owner very friendly and helpful. Very quiet location.Mrs Y Kirton - 28th August 2016
We have spent a fantastic week here in Woodchurch. The cottage is absolutely lovely, cosy and charming with it's period details yet perfectly functional, we loved the garden too!. Woodchurch is a lovely village (the Kentish sausages from the local butchers are so good!) We enjoyed the beaches and Canterbury, there are so many walks that are very easily accessible. the rare Breeds Farm is only a 20 minute walk away from the cottage and the children loved it! We hope to be back some day.Family Lee - Germany - 12th August 2016
And once again we had a wonderful stay in your cottage - 3rd time!Family Van Brenk - 4th August 2016
We have had a fantastic fortnight here. The cottage is very comfortable and has everything you could need and in a great location. The children have loved playing in the garden and my 2 year old has been slightly obsessed by the sheep! We have all had a much needed very relaxing break from our busy lives. Thanks for the lovely cottage.Ward Family - Leigh on Sea - 22nd July 2016
Nice Village, house good. We enjoyed it very much.Mr T Kirsch - 12th July 2016
We had a lovely stay at Fairview cottage in Woodchurch. It was a good launching point for all activities in Kent and East Sussex, and when we weren't enjoying day trips, the cottage was a perfect place to relax.Mrs S Mills - 4th April 2016
What a lovely week we have spent in your beautiful cottage which is so cosy and full of character. The views across the fields to the village are gorgeous and we enjoyed walking to the windmill and watching it working. The mill is lit up at night which is a bonus ! Very well located with two great pubs just 5 minutes muddy walk away! I'm sure we will visit again !Anderson - 22nd December 2015
Lovely old cottage, full of character & very comfortable. Liked being able to walk to the two pubs in the village. Enjoyed our stay.Mrs V Mckenna - 14th September 2015

We loved the position of this property and it was obviously well loved by the owners and very comfortable.Mrs Valerie Warner - 20th July 2015
Great place to spend a long weekend or week with family or friends, beautiful scenery to go for a hike or pub food at the local pubs (walking distance). Landlord was very helpful answering our questions. Excellent kitchen, central heating and hot water facilities. Particularly beautiful during spring with blue bells everywhere.Mr Ten Vendhuis - 25th April 2014

One of the best, if not the best cottage, we've ever stayed in. Location, comfort, character and atmosphere all 10 out of 10.Mr and Mrs Ingall, Essex - 20th April 2012
Second time round and hopefully not the last time. We really enjoyed the atmosphere. Sad to leave.Willem and Lysbeth from The Netherlands - 1st September 2011
