If I had only looked at previous TripAdvisor reviews before booking 2 nights in this out-of-the-way B&B, I could have spared my partner and myself a memory that we - for many years to come - will have to haunt us! How close were our experiences to those of Tom M, whose belated review gave us so much to laugh... More

This B&B is amazing. It's very quaint and has a real old world charm, tucked away in the beautiful countryside of the North downs area of great beauty . The owners went out of their way to help us with taxis , advised to good pubs and pointed us to some fabulous off the the tourist trail places to see... More

very much off the beaten track but idyllic setting. Had it not been for a nice welcome from their daughter Lucy we would not have stayed (although our credit card had already been charged before our arrival). Room was basic and the en suite worse than basic. Pillows like rocks and sheets and pillowcases looked old and grubby but hopefully... More

This is a belated review .. as I still cant get the experience out of my head. I try and make light of it now as I've have counselling ;-) It was so bad that it will form the basis of a script for my forthcoming TV sketch. Names will be changed though. The place looked enticing after a website... More

The gentleman who welcomed us was lovely and the building itself is stunningly quaint. There is so much potential to this place but for the following reason we will not be coming back, nor will we recommend it as a place to stay: - The walls and floors are very thin (no acoustic separation has been introduced to make this...

This guest house has beautiful surroundings and Roger and Susan couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. The drive there alone was breathtaking! The rooms are very clean and comfortable, filled with character (the authentic beams are stunning). Definitely recommend this place. Sleeping there is a delight, it is so quiet and peaceful.

Lovely, Tranquil setting. Rolling green, animals grazing. Very quiet and pretty with a quaint and charming country cottage. Clean and comfortable bed and pillow. However, it is basic. No toiletries provided except for handwash. No hairdryer and the tower is small. It is ok but it is not cheap. I paid 78 quid so I did expect soap and shampoo... More

This b&b is ideally situated on the outskirts of Canterbury with only a short drive away from town. It has some lovely views over the valley and some nice local walks. The house was warm and cosy and the room comfortable. The owners were very welcoming, catered to our needs and were always on hand. The breakfast was plentiful, hot... More
