Plenty of space indoors and a massive kitchen with a double oven and an Aga. Has the great addition of a very good condition tennis court and games room with table tennis, darts, pool etc. You don't really have to leave the property while you have enough food and drink to keep you going. We have been twice now with different family members each time and all of them have loved the place, looking forward to making another visit sometime in the future.

Our group (8 friends) stayed over new years and we felt very welcomed (champagne glasses were even provided). We love the cottage and are talking about coming again in summer so we can swim in the lake. The cottage has loads of space for social activities and is very comfortable. Despite the fog when we visited, the views and area surrounding the cottage is beautiful and the pub is not too far to walk to either. The location is convenient for being close enough to places like Canterbury- where we went for a day trip but once at the cottage, it feels like you're in the middle of nowhere which is great for that time away feeling. The property itself was clean with towels provided. The layout works very well with a spacious sitting room (including sofa bed), a well designed kitchen, a dining area and a conservatory which was great as a second social space. Fantastic place which we'd all definitely recommend!
