                                                                                                    We stayed here for a girls weekend in December 2016, there were seven of us and we had plenty of room without feeling like we were all on top of each other. The house is very quirky and unique, with a cinema room in the basement and wood fired hot tub being a real bonus. There was 2 bathrooms and 4 toilets, the bedrooms are large and well laid out and there was also a music room. Having not ever used log burners before, we were really grateful for Glens help on how to light them and also how to keep the hot tub hot! Liz gave some tips on how to use the aga/range cooker which worked really well for us as a group and there was also a conventional oven, so cooking our Christmas dinner was easy and all the timings came together as we had lots of space to cook and prep the food. 2 out of 3 of us that were driving found the place really easily using sat nav and we found our way the short 5 minute journey into the local village of Lenham by following Liz and Glen's simple instructions. The village whilst small has some lovely shops selling local produce, gifts, antiques, butchers, bakers, fish and chips and more and there was also a Co-operative for the items that you couldn't get in the other shops. The only minor downsides were the attic room has a very low ceiling on the stairs climbing up into the room, but wasn't an issue if you were careful and the headroom when you were up there was high. Glen has already mentioned he is going to make some modifications to this in the near future do that it isn't a hazzard. The only other comment was that the kitchen sink was down a couple of steps in a kind of utility area which made draining veg a little tricky with the large pans we were using. Again, this is something that Glen has already taken steps to modify and is looking at putting a sink in the kitchen area which would make the place perfect. We would definitely book again, the hosts were helpful and available if we needed them, but gave us free reign of their wonderful house. Looking through the old photos and seeing how much love and effort that Liz and Glen had put into the house was amazing, they really have transformed the place from a semi-derelict place into the grand and unusual property that it now is.

Met with a warm welcome. Fantastic walking from the property and within a short distance drive there are lots of other footpatgs too. Visited Sissinghurst National Trust and Ightham Mote. So much to see and do. There are some fantastic local pubs and restuarants but we enjoyed cooking in too. Thank you xxx We will definately return again soon. Anna & Brad from Burghfield, Reading.

Very well appointed cottage with many essential items, adding some touches of luxury, Egyptian cotton bed linen, beautiful fluffy white towels, Ren products, log burning stove, fresh hen eggs, homemade bread and jam, this owner really takes pride in her cottage making the stay a real pleasure. I was reluctant to write a review as I wanted to keep this gem to myself, as we will definitely will be returning. Great communication throughout the booking, our dog was very welcome, extremely helpful and deserving of success.
