Perfect location for a peaceful holiday.
Flint cottage lived up to all it's descriptions with no disappointments. It is in an ideal location for getting around the Kent coast from Whitstable to Dover. Quex park nearby is well worth a visit on a fine day and the walk from the cottage to Minnis Bay is easily made with views of Reculver in the distance. Parking in Essex Road was not a problem and the only minor inconvenience was the bathroom/toilet being downstairs in the annexe with both bedrooms upstairs. Having said that we would happily stay there again in the future.

We had a great holiday. Birchington town centre had good shops and was in walking distance from the property. The nearest beach, Minnis Bay, had a lovely family restaurant which served enjoyable food. The Cottage was cosy, pretty and felt like home.
Mr Walker

We had an exceptional time there. The cottage was very cosy, have recommended it to others. Would be very happy to come again.

Delightfully cosy cottage
We were very lucky to be able to get a last minute booking for this cottage considering it appears to be fully booked now up until September. It has been decorated with enormous style and thought and everything was of the highest quality. It was extremely comfortable and perfect for the two of us. There is a very sweet garden and we were lucky to be able to eat outside every day. Birchington and Minnis Bay are close by and parking there was very easy. Good shops and a super beach - very simple and unspoilt. There is also very easy access to the buses and station and we enjoyed exploring the coast from east to west. All highly recommended!

Convenient, comfortable, clean, charming cottage
Flint Cottage is in an excellent location to explore Kent. There is a railway station at Birchington, making it only 1 and a half hours from St Pancras International. There is a bus stop a few minutes walk from the Cottage. Short drive to the Turner Contemporary, Margate. Other seaside towns and Canterbury are easy to get to. Birchington itself has plenty of places to eat and drink ( including a microbrewery) and it is lovely to see so many independent shops. Dante Rossetti is buried in the local churchyard. Flint Cottage itself is charming with very good facilities and a lovely outside space. We stayed during a heatwave but the wood burning stove makes the Cottage an all year round venue. The welcome pack was much appreciated.
