My 83 year old mother really enjoyed her stay and spent many hours watching the peacocks and birds in the gardens. We explored the kent coast and the local sights. it was very peaceful place to stay and we will certainly return in the future. We met Joanna on the 3rd day and found her very kind and helpful.
