Worst property I have ever stayed in.
Too many faults numerous to mention, but cleanliness or safety doesn't seem to be on the agenda. It is a shame as it is great position, but obviously nothing has been done to it for years and that includes the cleaning.

Birthday holiday
This cottage was not cleaned properly before we arrived, microwave and grill were dirty and the toilets were very dirty and the seat of the downstairs one was broken. Part of the main wardrobe in our room was locked and the part that was open was full of someone's personal items. Many cupboards and doors were locked and we could not find a smoke alarm which I thought was a legal requirement. We felt like we were lodgers in someone else's home. No reply has been sent to us to address these problems from the property owner despite a similar review by us on the Sykes website in June. This was the most expensive cottage we have rented with Sykes and was the most disappointing. We had a problem on the second day regarding the shower and hot water, this was fixed within a couple of hours, good response for a Sunday!!

The situation of the cottage meant it was very peaceful and quiet and extremely restful. It is a village I know extremely well so I had a good idea of where the cottage was. The overall condition of the cottage was very very good and comfortable. I have never been in a hired cottage that was as well equipped as this one. I shall certainly book it again and I would certainly recommend it to anyone who asked.

Pill Rags is a wonderful no frills holiday cottage perfect for families with very young children. The two cot beds, children's toys, stair gate and high chair were a huge bonus for us as we were there with two children under 2. The location is superb for getting either south to Dover, east to Canterbury, Whitstable and Ramsgate or west to the National Trust properties around Tenterden and the Battle of Hastings. I would certainly recommend this place to any friends or family.
Mrs Banks

This holiday home is very spacious, well insulated and warms up easily. The kitchen is well-fitted and the bathroom is roomy with a very effective pumped shower. The comfortable lounge has sofas and an armchair, the dining room is light and airy and looks out on the garden, which has (for warmer weather) decking and barbecue. The house has homely peculiarities, and we were very content there! Being located on the edge of the village, there's views of the surrounding fields. The pub, in walking distance, is popular, and we went to eat there. Walks and South Coast entertainments are easily accessible, as is Canterbury of course. We enjoyed our stay!
