We enjoyed the big kitchen and the living room with all the family. The view from the bed is just beautiful and peaceful. The Land Lady is very nice and does very good cookies. She decorates and furnished the cottage in the warning and charming style. If we comeback in this area, we will definitely choose this spot again. Thank you for your welcome.

Set in the countryside surrounded by fields but just a short distance from many Kent places of interest. The " Shed " is like no other we've seen before, light bright & airy with views from every window. The owners have put a lot of thought into making your stay comfortable with just about everything you may need. Tina's own special touches are a real treat.
