It was all that it promised in description on website

  • 4 of 5

All was prepared and ready as promised. Tranquil peaceful and well resourced. Beware path to front door which 'leans over' to one side as you walk up the slope. Not the easiest for infirm or sight impaired.

Great place in the countryside!

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely few days at Garlands Retreat over the Easter weekend.

The house is very clean, in good modern condition, comfortable and very well equipped. There is a pretty big garden, which is fully fenced and gated, so ideal for dogs if you have one. It's located in some lovely countryside, which is very peaceful but only about 10 minutes drive into Walmer/Deal.

The owner was very nice, helpful and responsive when we contacted her.

We visit family in Kent a couple of times a year and so have stayed in lots of holiday lets in the area and Garlands Retreat is definitely one of the nicest and I'm sure we will be back.

Thanks a lot.

A very good stay!

  • 5 of 5

A few days spent in Kent's region, this cottage was very calm and well equipped with many stuffs to your disposal!

Not far away Dover's White Cliffs and Castle, very practical if you have a very young child with you!

It was a nice stay without any trouble, we recommend it!

Special interest holidays:

For those equestrian fans, there is a riding school within easy walking distance and a little further down the road, guests can enjoy the facilities of the nearby caravan park with its clubhouse entertainment and indoor swimming pool (seasonal, entry charges apply).

Many footpaths cross the fields in the area and a twenty minute walk will take you to the nearest country pub in the village of Ripple, with its fine ales and excellent pub food. Alternatively, if you are feeling more energetic, you can walk across the fields to the Hare and Hounds a popular eating-house at Northbourne.

If you are interested in history, there are several castles to choose from, Dover being the largest, others at Deal and Walmer.

The Cathedral City of Canterbury is less than twenty miles away with a huge array of shops, pubs and restaurants, and of course the historic Cathedral itself. Dover Eastern docks are just fifteen minutes drive away, perfect for day trips to France.

Coast/Beach:

The nearby St Margaret’s Bay is a great place to eat with a choice of pubs and restaurants. The view is spectacular as the road winds down to the pebble beach. Alternatively, a ten minute drive will take you to the quaint seaside town of Deal which has everything you could want from an English seaside holiday including shops, restaurants, cafés, a pier with good fishing, golf course, leisure center and an outdoor paddling pool for the kids situated next to the pebble beach.

Travel:

Convenient for Dover Docks, 15 minute drive.

Car essential.
