We stayed with my partner and son in the last week of a four week holiday, we walked to the train station (about 15-20min) to get into Maidstone. Lovely relaxing stay, able to cook our own food, place to kick the football and loved the quiet setting. Thanks Lauriane for being a lovely host!

Its a very quaint large cottage with beams and all the characteristics of a bygone age but with al the modern facilities slotted in with harmony. The gardens are beautiful and the location is in a village that boasts two excellent pubs a local shop and a very nice butchers all within walking (or rather stepping) distance. At night its is so peaceful and during the day in the rear secluded garden you could be in the middle of nowhere. The cottage is so well equipped with expensive items and touches - no expense seems to have been spared and its a credit to Chris for doing so. All in all one of the nicest places to stay and we shall definitely be returning.
