Beautiful house with lots of land for children and dog to run around and play

  • 5 of 5

Good space inside and outside house. Not too far from big supermarkets but two minutes drive from wingham village with small shops and pub.

Beautiful views from house surrounded by fields.

Electric gates and bar fencing all round the property making you feel both secure and safe.

Lovely warm and friendly owner Jill who couldn't do enough for you and immediately replacing anything not working (e.g. Kettle gave up).

A family of four adults, three young children and a dog had plenty of space to not feel on top of each other, three stories high with four w/c and three showers two baths, huge kitchen and living room. You can't go wrong.

Thank you again Jill!

Beautiful property in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 6 others stayed here for my hen do for a weekend in May 2018. The property was well kept, in beautiful surroundings and a wonderful size - lovely big kitchen and living area with roomy bedrooms. Having 3 bathrooms (plus an extra toilet) was very useful when we were all getting ready for a night out. Would definitely recommend and would love to stay again!

Lovely weekend at the Old Engineers House

  • 4 of 5

A group of 8 girls celebrating a hen weekend, the house was the perfect set up with a big dining room and lounge with seats for all and plenty of bathrooms. Jill was easily contactable throughout the booking process and set up all the bedrooms as singles as per our request. Could have done with a few more kitchen utensils but otherwise a great house!

Great house for larger groups

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over the weekend in this brilliant house. Four large double / twin bedrooms with good beds plus a (slightly uncomfortable for adults) sofa bed in a small separate room meant there was plenty of room for us all, particularly with 3 bathrooms available.

Kitchen is modern and well equipped and the separate dining room sat 9 comfortably. The house is very cosy but if needed the central heating works really well!

The sitting room has a huge sofa and lots of seating plus the usual freeview TV.

Jill the manager was helpful and quick to respond and allowed us a late checkout which was really useful.

Although the house is not in Wingham itself, there's a large and well stocked farmshop / cafe not far down the road which we visited and would recommend for breakfasts and cream teas too!

Hope to visit again.
