This was the best B&B I have ever stayed in. It was super clean, well appointed, set in the fields almost, and had great privacy. The hosts, Joan and Mike, could not have been kinder. Breakfast was superb, and the extra details were so nice- bowl of froit, sometimes nuts, cookies,etc. Cannot wait to go again.

All I can do is echo the praise written by the other reviewers: first class accommodation, wonderful bedroom with view and comfy bed, luxurious bathroom, every need catered for, delicious food, welcomed after a tiring cycle ride with 'would you like lemon drizzle cake and tea? (you bet!) and cushions provided when I sat outside on the garden chairs without... More

Gate Lodge Cottage is more than a B+B, located in a quiet country lane but close to Canterbury the accommodation is in a self contained suite with private parking and is immaculate,extremely stylish and beautifully furnished. The lovely owners Mike and Joan were very welcoming, serving us fresh coffee and homemade chocolate brownies on arrival. The breakfasts are delicious with... More

We stayed here for a long weekend. I cannot recommend this place enough. Joan and Mike were so welcoming. The BB itself is well laid out, has excellent facilities, is spacious but at the same time cosy as well. The bed is lovely and the bath is a must. Great base in gorgeous surroundings. We really enjoyed our stay...home from... More

We stayed here for my birthday and what can I say that hasn't already been said. The cottage is set in an area of natural beauty. The people could not be friendlier. The breakfast is to die for and once eaten will keep you sated for most of the day. The bed was very comfortable, the shower and amenities were... More

The room (suite) is large with a sitting room, fully equipped kitchen and a bedroom upstairs, along with a lovely ensuite bathroom.
