I have family in Boughton-under-Blean, so The Linen Shed met a number of criteria for my wife and me: near enough to family without being under their feet; somewhere special to stay for a special visit; a place that was highly recommended by previous visitors; and most of all, somewhere we would feel 'comfortable'. We weren't disappointe on amny count. Graham greeted us when we arrived with a well needed pot of tea and a guide to the house. Vickie soon made an appearance and we were made to feel as if we were old friends who had dropped in after a long time away. I can't begin to describe the food - there is a limit to my vocabulary without becoming flamboyant - but as we said in the guest book, we stayed for 3 nights and eat 6 breakfasts worth of food. And not because we were greedy, Vickie just keeps producing more food! We stayed in the french room, which is going to cost me more money as Anthea has decided she now wants an empress bed with a tempur mattress. There was a television in the room, which we watched a grand total of twice. We had lots to do and see, like Jo-Jo's restuarant in Tankerton, Dover Castle, or even the Queens Head down the road, so we mostly just used the room to sleep. The tiled shower room was simply brilliant. Previous reviews have described the decor and the house far better than I could, so I won't repeat them - they're all very accurate. We have really enjoyed our stay, we enjoyed Vickie and Graham's hospitalty and hope to so again.
