Having driven down from London we arrived at four in the afternoon. Although the house is off a narrow country lane it is only a short distance from the Canterbury/Sandwich road. This presented no problem to sat nav.
Neil Gunn met us at the door, helped us with parking and our bags, and showed us to our beautiful room at the front of the Regency House. There are plenty of descriptions to be found elsewhere, but suffice it to say you are back in the days of Jane Austen. Plus you have the modern amenities of a lovely well lit modern bathroom, king size bed, free wi-fi and television.
Kate was away at first visiting one of their daughters and it was Neil who served us tea and cake on the sunny garden terrace. The gardens surrounding the house have beautiful trees and a large manicured lawn. A delicious breakfast of cereals,fresh fruit and full English is served when you want it in the dining room.
The location is perfect for touring this part of Kent. We visited Dover Castle, Canterbury Cathedral, the ancient town of Sandwich and the fishing town of Whitstable.
There are lots of good places to eat nearby, we would recommend the lively Duke William just ten minutes away.
Kate and Neil made us feel extremely welcome and we heartily recommend their delightful accommodation.
