Why Pauline Sheehan chose Romney Marsh

We bought this beautiful cottage as the moment we walked through the gates it was like stepping back in to a different time

The sun was shining there were baby lambs in the fields next to the cottage and this chocolate box cottage sat in the middle of the lovely secluded garden surrounded by wonderful views of the countryside and we just knew this was a very special place and it is we are sure you will love staying here just as much as we do.

What makes this cottage unique

Beautiful Thatched secluded cottage with wonderful views from the garden and cosy conservatory, Closes to beautiful beaches, wonderful towns and villages, historic castles nearby, great shopping in the designer outlet.

National trust gardens, great for walks and exploring the countryside also fast train services in to London.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This cottage coupled with it's magical location did not disappoint. Quite simply the best cottage holiday we have ever encountered. Everything was as described in relation to the cottage/location and the surrounding area. The recommendations with regards to eating out were spot on - the Black Lion in Appledore serving up top grade food as one example. Handy for lots of attractions or just quiet walks, this cottage will not let you down. Comfortable, cozy and the ideal please to unwind and de-stress. The facilities in the cottage were excellent wanting for nothing. Miss this delight at your peril - it should be top of your 'to visit/stay' list. Many thanks for been given the opportunity to stay.

a truly lovely cottage :)

  • 5 out of 5
Pauline & Chris had provided everything we needed for our stay at the cottage (iron, hairdryers, towels, hoover etc..) the cottage was absolutely lovely and the garden was very well maintained. Our children enjoyed playing outside in the garden which was very private.
The cottage itself was very pretty. It was very clean and tidy ) we met the cleaner leaving just as we arrived. The beds were all made up for us - and very comfortable as we found out. The cottage was immaculate and I truly couldnt fault the cleanliness of the bathrooms and kitchen etc.
The information provided by pauline regarding places to visit/eat was very useful! We had a takeaway from ' The Old School house' indian restaurant one evening and visited 'Miss Mollets high class tea room'( in Appledore village)for lunch one day.
Pauline was so helpful answering a couple of little queries that arose during our stay.
The weather was awful one day of our stay (it rained all day!) But we didnt mind too much as the cottage is such a lovely , relaxing place to stay. When the weather improved it was lovely to wake up to the views across the sunny fields as I made breakfast in the kitchen :) there are some lovely places to visit such as old family favourites like Dymchurch and St Mary's Bay beaches. We also visited Rye, Camber Sands and went swimming at Tenterden leisure centre which had inflatables for the kids to use :)
We also visited the designer outlet shopping centre in Ashford -so the cottage is ideally situated to visit all these places...
Wherever we visited during the day, it was always a pleasure to return back to the cottage and just spend a relaxing evening. It really is a wonderful place and you feel 'at home' with the welcoming feel that you get when you first enter :)
We had a lovely holiday staying at the cottage and really enjoyed our time there as a family. We would recommend it to family and friends and hope to return again ourselves in the future :) it is a lovely place to stay, and we came away with happy memories....

Cosy in Kent

  • 5 out of 5
This is a lovely little cottage, centrally located in easy driving distance to many South Eastern attractions. We spent a week here at the beginning of October this year (2012). The cottage is well equipped and the bed was very comfortable. The place was clean and cosy. Pauline and Chris took very good care of us. We had a problem with the internet connection while we were there and Chris responded quickly and got us back in business!

The Most Beautiful Cottage Ever

  • 5 out of 5
This Cottage has to be seen to be believed !
like a fairytale sitting picture perfect in its own garden with the most amazing views
of the countryside and resident sheep.
Inside is utterly charming and characterful very tastefully furnished and all in keeping with the style of the cottage except for the wonderful colored chandeliers adding that bit of wow factor which we loved so quirky.
we loved everything about it and what a great area to visit so many lovely villages and castles to visit also great shopping we never wanted to leave and only wish it was mine so i did not have to.
thank you so much as you know we have already booked again.

Beautiful Cottage in Beautiful Scenery!

  • 5 out of 5
Stunning!
Before our arrival the owner was exceptionally helpful, providing us with lots of details of what to do in the area, and where the best restaurants to go were etc. When we arrived we were stunned.... it is such a beautiful, picturesque cottage with a lovely view across the countryside. It was beautifully furnished and in a great location. Comfy beds, and great décor.
The garden was beautifully done as well, and I loved sitting out in the conservatory in the mornings with it's view into the countryside.
We had a fabulous time, thank you so much for all your useful tips!
We will be back!
