“Brilliant!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Just spent a fantastic week in an idyllic cottage surrounded by the prettiest part of Kent that we have ever visited. Ideal location for coast & countryside. Everything was top class! Thank you Tim & Lisa for making us feel so at home and being so informative & helpful. Even Bennie (Spaniel) is sulking now we are back. Note to everyone - ask Lisa for a "one stop" selection of gifts to bring back (i.e. cakes, jams, chutneys etc.) you won't be disappointed.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Little impetts is a chocolate box little thatched cottage attached to the main cottage. When you arrive you have your own entrance and courtyard. The two bedroom cottage has all you need and is clean,warm and comfortable. We took our big dog and felt at ease from the start.The owner Lisa bakes and sells her own cakes and also makes jams and chutneys her Lemon drizzle cake is yummy! If your looking for a taste of country life in a quiet rural setting, walks on your doorstep in a cosy cottage then this is perfect:) 10/10

“Great little place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

From the moment you are met and given the keys you are left to your own devices. There is a book inside the cottage that explains everything you need to know. We found the owners to be really friendly and helpful ,If you require anything all you have to do is ask! The property is situated in a peaceful location with good walks.The owners even leave you some milk, coffee, tea to get started with in case you have not had time to go anywhere to get some provisions.They will provide towels if you request, which we did and they left us plenty. The cottage has been done to a tasteful standard that should meet everyones taste.Everyting about the cottage is lovely.We went as a group which consisted of four adults one child and a dog. It is good sized place for a short break and with in 20 minutes of the coast. Would we go back to little impetts, yes we would.

“superb location to discover Kent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011 for a stay in October 2011

We went to the cottage for half term and stayed 7 nights. This peroid cottage is cosy, charming and full of characher. Although the kitchen is a bit small but suprisingly we manged to cook every meal for a week. Lisa and Tim were very flexible and kind and we even invited my daughter's god parents to come to stay with us for the weekend. They lived in the second bedroom downstairs and we were close enough but managed to have privacy (toilet is on the first floor so we did not have problem to use it, but I do not want to think about how my guests managed it).

The location is perfect for our day trips. There are many walks in the village and within half an hour drive we reached Dover, Cantebury, Sandwich, Chilham and a chic zoo at nearby village Wingham. Because of the ideal location, we managed to have long lying in before getting ready for the day trip, and come back to cook our dinner. Also, if we had decided not going out, we could have enjoyed the beauty and comfort of the cottage and countryside itself by staying in and doing nothing but cooking.
We have been to several cottages before for weekly holidays. This is definitely the best enjoyable one we have ever had.
