Excellent Hide Away in Lovely Area
Enjoyed the cottage and the local area, sampling a couple of the pubs but largely just relaxing in the very comfortable cottage. Phillipa and Neil were excellent hosts and we'd definitely go back!
Cosy Kent Cottage
What a fabulous cottage in a wonderful location, some wonderful walks, local forests and easy access to some good village pubs. Very well appointed cottage with many essential items, adding some touches of luxury, Egyptian cotton bed linen, beautiful fluffy white towels, Ren products, log burning stove, fresh hen eggs, homemade bread and jam, this owner really takes pride in her cottage making the stay a real pleasure.
I was reluctant to write a review as I wanted to keep this gem to myself, as we will definitely will be returning. Great communication throughout the booking, our dog was very welcome, extremely helpful and deserving of success.
Small but beautifully formed welcoming cottage
A luxurious bathroom and bedroom added to the overall charm of the cottage. The bed and bedding was of such high quality that it was wonderful to go up after being out all day.
The cottage is in an ideal area for so many areas of interest and visiting Hever castle, Chartwell and Rye were just some of the delights close to hand.
Phillipa was very welcoming with tips on places to visit but never intrusive and we were invited to help ourselves to veg and fruit from the vegetable garden - thank you for the apples, broad beans and apples we partook of Phillipa as well as the welcoming eggs, bread and jam that were waiting for us on our arrival.
We feel the cottage fully deserves five stars - we had a great time!
A delightful and relaxing stay.
We needed a short break getaway to unwind, and found it here. Lovely cottage, lovely owner (Philippa), and lovely location. Even the weather was lovely!
A perfect country hideaway
I really can't say enough good things about our weekend at the cottage. Philippa was a wonderful host, available when we needed her, but leaving us to ourselves just to relax. The cottage is beautiful and the kitchen was really well equipped, which for two people who like to cook was much appreciated. Having private outside space was just the cherry on the top, and we loved having barbecues on the patio. Overall, we couldn't fault it and are already trying to work out when we can go back!
Relaxing, peaceful, outstanding views.
This 3 night break was just what the doctor ordered! The house was immaculate and well stocked. The bathroom and shower were clean and tranquil.
The fresh eggs and bread were a lovely added touch.
The bed could have had a couple of extra pillows and the chairs in the sitting area/ lounge would have been more cosy as a small sofa to snuggle on.
These two things are just suggestions to make this house even more perfect for a short romantic and relaxing break.
We will definitely be back and thankful for having us.
