We spent a wonderful time at Mallard Cottage in May till June 5 th. The cottage was very comfortable and the garden, the pool and the lovely countryside around were wonderful. We visited a lot of interesting sights but there is much more to see so we`d like to come back. Many thanks to our nice hosts Elaine and Malcolm.

We had a wonderful few days staying in Heron cottage with our toddler and dog. Elaine was very welcoming and accommodating of our needs and the cottage was homely and well-equipped. There were lots of sights to see within a short drive and we could have done with longer to explore the local area. Particularly enjoyed the steam train from... More

We stayed in Heron Cottage in summer 2013, but never got round to writing a review. The cottage was perfect, just like I hoped it would be. Very comfortable beds (and we are tall people!), nice sitting room, well equipped kitchen, swimming pool etc. Lots of attention to detail, which made us feel at home. The area is perfect for...

We stayed in Heron Cottage back in May 2014 (oops, I forgot to do a review ... and I did promise to do one, good or bad). It's all good. Elaine was very helpful, despite the fact that we made a very last minute booking. She showed us around when we arrived. The cottage was bijou but more than adequate... More

Spent a lovely relaxing week at the Mallard cottage. Very clean and well equipped including a welcome pack. The host family of Elaine, Malcolm and John were very nice and helpful. Explored local area and would recommend a visit to the local church. It will surprise you. Make sure to spend some time in Tenterden which is the next town... More

My wife and I have had a lovely stay in Heron cottage. We had glorious weather which helped us to make full use of the heated outdoor pool. The owners were very helpful and friendly. We used the cottage as a base to visit the North Kent coastal towns, Canterbury and also the southern seaside towns of Rye and Hythe.... More

Great little village and excellent local pub. Cottages fine for 2 and a small dog, could feel a little small for 4 adults, so hiring both cottages would be best. Elaine and Malcolm couldn't be more helpful and accommodating. Would hire cottage again without hesitation. Lovely pool, very quiet and peaceful location. Only a short drive to Tenterden 5mins apx...

We chose Ransley Barn Cottages from the internet as the base for our week's holiday in Kent. The internet didn't do it justice.
