Lovely comfortable accommodation, very welcoming on arrival . This property was a very good base for touring around the area. We chose to use our car as we like to explore and find new places. If however you don't want to use your car then there is a very good bus service.
Mrs Holmes

Excellent weather for a start, good position of cottage for the use of the very good bus service to visit many places. Very welcoming and friendly owners with helpful suggestions.
Mr Brauns

We used this place as a base to go out on day and half day trips arourd Kent.The old dairy was just right for the two of us,we used the decked area to sit out on for meals and just to relax.The accomodation was very clean and well equipped for two people. The village shop has the basics (wine,food,papers ETC).There are two pubs in the village,neither do food .We found some good places to eat in Herne bay and Whitstable.We used the bus to go to Canterburry and back,didn,t cost very much more than the car park would have cost for the day. Kent has lots of small town that are full of history ,well worth a visit, we intend to use the old dairy again
