Beautiful spot next to the charming Kentish village of Wickhambreaux - hidden England! Look out on to rural scenes and walk through the fields to the local for a drink and excellent pub grub amongst friendly people. Not far from Canterbury and has the added bonus of Stodmarsh nature reserve a short walk away in another lovely village with pub... More

The hosts were splendid and couldn't do enough for you. The breakfast and all round service was 100%. If you want a quiet runaway with amazing quality and service then... More

Our two night stay was originally a one night birthday gift from someone who had stayed and had enjoyed Gate Lodge Cottage. B and B does not begin to describe this place! Bed= the most comfortable bed you've ever slept in, clean crisp white bed linen, in a beautiful, huge, tastefully decorated and furnished bedroom, with dressing room. On the... More

Lovely, clean place with beautiful views of countryside. Owners were very helpful and accommodating. The cooked breakfast was the best I have ever had, I am still repeating the fruit and natural yoghurt at home. The only slight negative from our point of view was a lack of privacy with a shared garden and only an internal wall with little... More

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
