I live in CA now and need to come home as often as I can, which with 3 kids is not the easiest thing to find a place where we all fit comfortably. I am extremely picky about cleanliness and this house was PERFECT. It was spotless, well stocked and tastefully decorated! There are three bedrooms so if you are 3 couple traveling this would be great. One bed is a pull out bed but one night I had to sleep with my daughter (nightmares) and it was totally fine! It has two good sized attic bedrooms and a master with a shower. The main bathroom is to die for! We met the owner and he was super friendly as are the neighbors. This is definitely our first choice when we return to England again. Highly recommend.

Was welcomed by the lovely Lynda and home made cheese scones (delicious). A very high standard of cleanliness and attention to detail made this cottage a place to remember. Comfortable beds, stunning view over the fields with the donkeys (Geoffrey and George) and the 3 ponies. Very well equipped with little extras like kitchen roll etc. and coffee and sugar and milk in the fridge. Small shop in the village for anything else you might need and a pub. Extra television in the bedroom. Lots of peace and quiet, very relaxing stay. Good base for going to Rye, Dymchurch and Camber Sands. We also visited Whitstable and Margate for the day. Thankyou Lynda for making our stay so comfortable. A home from home.

Kitchen one of the best equipped we've stayed in - even the knives were sharp! Owners are next door - very friendly and helpful but not in any way obtrusive. Generous welcome pack and basic provisions, cleaning materials all provided. Stone is small and quiet, good local walks from the property. Nearby Appledore has well-stocked small shop and post office. Tenterden and Rye have supermarkets and are well worth a visit anyway. 15 minutes to Camber Sands. It is also a good centre for wider forays such as Bodiam, Battle (950th anniversary of Battle of Hastings so lots on) and Canterbury. Would thoroughly recommend.
