Chris's beautiful cottage is even better than the excellent photographs suggest. Its setting is heavenly, alongside other beautiful homes and gardens, close to a spectacular, large village green. Carley's butchers shop, at the bottom of the garden, sells first-rate bacon and sausages, but also many other food and convenience items. Chris could not have been more friendly, helpful and efficient; he has thought of everything to make one's stay enjoyable, and done so with style and good taste. The result is the perfect combination of old-world charm and modern comforts. Woodchurch is an ideal base - full of interest itself, but not too full of traffic. We found the neighbours very friendly and we were welcomed with open arms at the church when we pushed attendance at evensong into double figures. I would recommend the short walk to the village museum and the twenty-minute walk to the Rare Breeds Centre. Thanks to the tip in Chris's helpful information folder, we enjoyed chips from the mobile van on Wednesday evening; my favourite moment was eating them in the garden, listening to the bellringers practicing - a sort of distillation of everything English! The village is particularly well located for the many A-list places in the surrounding area. We particularly enjoyed Dover, Scotney and Sissinghurst castles, Great Dixter and Dungeness - and don't miss beautiful, peaceful, Winchelsea and Spike Milligan's grave there. Tenterden is an exceptionally attractive town. It was fun to visit Rye and watch Chris's Mapp & Lucia DVD afterwards! We had a fabulous week - thank you, Chris.
We had a great time staying in the Shepherds Hut. Thank you for spending so much time showing the girls all the animals and allowing them to collect the eggs, they loved it. It was an extra special time for my daughters friend as it was actually her first holiday. The girls enjoyed the freedom of being able to run around and play on the outdoor play equipment and we all loved the hot tub. We hope to come back sometime soon.
Many thanks once again.
