Guestbook comments from the owner

08/04/2013

This has been our second stay at this well maintained and equipped holiday home. Very often a returning visit is not as good as the first time, but this was certainly not the case this instance.

As with our first visit, we were personally greeted on arrival by the owner. The large selection of toys games, books and videos has increased and as last time, they kept our grandchildren amused throughout the week.

We would certainly recommend this house to our friends and family or anybody who was looking for a large reasonably priced holiday home.

Wonderful for family get together

  • 5 of 5

We all had a wonderful time with weather to match. Children enjoyed the space to run around and the adults plenty of room to sit in the sun. Well equipped kitchen with everything you could possibly need and three fridges to cope with the demands of very large groups. Really can recommend this well managed house for adults and children.

Wonderful house for a big group

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as a party of four families - 14 of us in total - and it was a perfect size for our group. The house and the grounds are wonderful for children and the location was perfect, you felt you were in the middle of nowhere, but at the same time it wasn't too far from a shop or a village or the Tenterden steam railway. Tony was a wonderful manager, very friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend this to others.

Great for the whole family

  • 5 of 5

This was our second family gathering in this spacious and very well equipped house. Everything was clean and well organised. And there's plenty of space for the boys to play football in the grounds. Tony, the owner, is very helpful. We even found some welcoming supplies including milk and cakes.

This time we visited Rye and the Forestry Commission at Bedgebury. On a previous visit we went to the Port Lympne Animal Reserve. The Family had a great time.

Lovely for a family get together

  • 5 of 5

Marlborough House was a wonderful place to celebrate my mums 85th birthday. 12 of us plus a toddler had a super weekend. Loads of walks across fields straight from the house. Beautiful lounge where we could all sit comfortably. Kitchen was very well equipped for cooking for the 12 of us and the welcome pack was an added bonus.

A great house for a large family gathering.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the farmhouse for a family wedding in the area. We were a large group of 2 families plus grandparents too and the house was perfect for us. It is spacious and comfortable, with a well equipped kitchen. As an added bonus the garden and grounds are huge and very peaceful.

On arrival, Tony welcomed us and kindly helped us with everything we needed to know. The welcome pack of supplies that were left in the fridge and kitchen were very gratefully received.

Thank you, we had a lovely stay and we all wished we could have stayed longer!

It is a fantastic area to stay in and I recommend this house for large groups.

Second visit as good if not better!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last year for four days as a family gathering for family members scattered in England and Switzerland and enjoyed it so much that we booked the day we got back for five days this year. With an additional member of the family joining us this year (8 Months old), the 12 of us settled very quickly back into the farmhouse like it was a second home! the three other young children had been discussing their stay on Face Time for the last year but in the last few weeks had been very excited about getting together in the Big House as they call it. With all the comforts and amenities that you have at home it was a wonderful relaxed time knowing that there was so much for everyone to do in the grounds and inside too - the table football was especially appreciated by the children this time!!!! The booking and arrival arrangements are very clear and simple to follow and the welcome pack was what it says - welcome!! We would love to return but as the children are getting older, school holidays may interfere with our arrangements, but would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone considering a family gathering, whether it be a short break or longer. Thank you Tony for making our annual get together so very special!
