Spacious and roomy

  • 4 of 5

With plenty of room for seven, this house was just perfect for entertaining. Although a little tired in places it was well equipped and really comfortable. Kids, grown-ups and Grandad were all very happy with the cavernous space of the property. The only real drawback was the on-street car parking which was limited due to roadworks being undertaken by the county council during our stay. All in all a brilliant week, highly recommended.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I booked this house for a fortnight's solo writing retreat with visits from nearby friends in the middle weekend. I came by public transport which was easy as the house is on the main bus route between Folkestone and Hythe. The house is spacious, comfortable, and well equipped apart from a couple of odd omissions in the kitchen (no egg cups or garlic crusher - though those can be worked around). I couldn't get radio reception but maybe that's just me. The library of books is great, there's plenty for everyone including children as long as they're up to reading full-length books. The beds are comfortable. The house wouldn't be good for anyone with mobility problems, as there are lots of stairs - but for the rest of us that's good exercise! There is a lever tap in the kitchen, but the rest of the taps are standard rotary taps. I had a couple of problems during my stay, and needed to contact the company that manages the property, who were not very quick to respond though they did eventually get back to me. And I had one question, which I had to ask by email several times before I got an answer: I wanted to know whether the cleaners would come in on the middle Saturday, or only after I left, which didn't seem a particularly complicated question to me. I didn't mind which it was, I just wanted to know whether I needed to tidy the house and make sure everyone was out of the way on the middle Saturday or not (the answer was 'no' which was fine but I wish they'd answered the first email not the fourth!). The kitchen and bathrooms were cleaned to a good standard, though there were places elsewhere where I could write my name in the dust, particularly in the main bedroom where I slept. Also some of the paintwork looked as if it hadn't been wiped down in months or years, and in places it was cracked or damaged. So if it matters to you that the property you stay in is pristine and perfect, this house will not be ideal. But if you'd like to stay somewhere spacious, with bags of character and charm, great sea views, and plenty of attractions nearby, then I'd recommend this house very highly. There is so much to enjoy, from the beautiful arum lilies in the front garden, to the Velux windows in the attic bedroom which make such a great sound when it rains. I would happily book this house again myself.

Lovely house, very comfortable, great location

  • 5 of 5

This house provided me and my grown-up family with a really good base for our holiday. The house is really lovely (homely as well as very spacious) and well maintained, the furniture's comfortable, and the location very convenient. Having the piano and lots of interesting books was a bonus. Inevitably there was some traffic noise during the day, but this wasn't really a problem. The view from the first floor lounge was stunning, and I loved being so close to the sea that I could hear the waves in the night. We could have done with more/ bigger saucepans, otherwise the house was pretty well equipped. There was a plumbing problem which the agent got sorted out. The house is well positioned, being within walking distance of shops and eating places as well as walks along the beach, up the hill into the woods behind Sandgate, and along the canal into Hythe.

Tolle, wunderschöner Ausblick

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist sauber, sehr geräumig und bietet alles, was man braucht. Die Schlüsselübergabe ist problemlos möglich. Wir waren zu 5. vor Ort und alle waren sehr zufrieden. Der Blick aus dem Wohnzimmer ist atemberaubend schön. Die Bibliothek im Haus ist sehr umfangreich, so dass man gemütliche Stunden am Kamin verbringen kann.

Von Folkestone aus ist London mit dem Zug gut und für die Entfernung auch günstig zu erreichen. Außerdem bieten sich Canterbury und Dover Castle für einen Besuch an. Der Strand direkt vor dem Haus ist aus grobem Kies und sauber.

Ich würde das Haus jederzeit wieder buchen!
