The property is in serious need of maintainence. There was damp stains and water leakage had caused parts of the ceiling to fall in. It wasn’t easy to operate the TV, the bed was uncomfortable and it wasn’t very clean.

A lovely property in a very good location

  • 5 of 5

The first impression of this cottage was very good from the outset with some lovely period features and enough space for us (3 adults and a toddler) to live comfortably for the week. To make this review as useful as possible I will break it down into categories.

1. The house:

A nice sized living room with coffee table and feature fire place. A TV with integrated DVD player connected to a freesat box is provided. There were plenty of DVDs and books provided which would have been useful if we had any wet stay in days (luckily we didn't). There were also plenty of children's toys which was great for our little one. The kitchen was very nice and well equipped with enough space for a 4 seat dining table. The two bedrooms (a double and a twin) were a comfortable size and had a good amount of storage. The bathroom was perfect for our needs having both a bath and shower. The garden was a lovely space for relaxing in the evening and had a useful utility building housing the washing machine and other useful items.

2. The location

The cottage is very conveiniently located being only 10 minutes walk from the centre of town and 15 minutes from the train station. There was a handy corner shop about 3 minutes walk from the cottage and a tesco store also within easy distance. There is also a recreation ground nearby with a childen's play area, so plenty in the immediate area. Faversham is also very close to the A2 and M2 providing easy access all the places of interest in Kent. The longest drive we had was probably around 45 minutes.

3. Welcome

The owner of the property went out of her way to greet us in person and was very knowledgeable about the area giving us plenty of useful information. She even lent us a buggy after we realised we had forgotten to bring our own. Other nice little touches such as tea, milk and other essentials being provided for us and the soft toy and books provided for our daughter made us feel very welcome from day one. We had no issues at all with the property but we knew that if we did need anything then we could call the owner and it would be sorted out.

Overall this property represents excellent value for money and we would not hesitate to stay here again if we had another break in Kent.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful part of Kent

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week in Faversham. The weather was lovely, the cottage was really comfortable and had everything we needed and our dog was made welcome with a bowl of water and a ball to play with when we arrived. Thanks for everything Ester, we had a great time.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to have you as a guest Julie and glad you were comfortable in the house. Apologies again for the disruption of the TV signal. I'm glad Hetty appreciated the ball on arrival! Best regards Esther

A typical 2 up 2 down cottage

  • 4 of 5

Fine for what we wanted as we were visiting family who live close by.

We did struggle a bit with the steep stairs but not a major problem.
