We stayed at the Stables and we couldn't have chosen better. A home from home with easy access to everything you need for a week's holiday around Canterbury. We enjoyed the privacy and cosines of this perfectly equipped cottage. Just the right place for a hassle-free and comfortable holiday. Thank you for a truly relaxing stay.

Just about 6 miles out of Canterbury The Gardener's Cottage is located at the back of the main house. A welcome hamper with wine, bread, eggs, milk, biscuits and marmalade made it a pleasent suprise. Anne made us feel welcome and assured us that she would be happy to sort out any problems and even provided 4 meals in the...

My wife and I were seeking alternative accommodation while visiting my mother in Canterbury. Having suffered the same old hotel rooms from the normal suspects, we were searching for something a little more enjoyable to relax in. Searching Trip Advisor I came across the Gardener's Cottage. What a find! Anne and Rob are wonderful hosts and nothing is too much...

Stayed in The Stables, beautiful cottage with fantastic patio and garden. Welcome hamper with bread, eggs, biscuits, milk, marmalade and bottle of wine. Nice toiletries, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets etc, Anne and Rob had thought of everything. The cottage was clean and comfortable and a good peaceful nights sleep in a comfy bed. Handily located with Canterbury, Broadstairs, Margate,...

We stayed for 3 nights in this stunning property. Perfectly located for trips to Canterbury and the coast, with great facilities nearby (Gibson's Farm Shop). Anne and Rob have thought of everything! A really lovely stay.

Almost certainly the best cottage we have ever stayed in - fixtures, fittings, equipment were all first class and hosts Anne and Rob, seem to have thought of everything. A lovely welcoming pack, including Easter eggs, and the location was ideal, easy to get to Canterbury Cathedral for Easter Sunday service. Storm Katie meant a planned trip to Dover Castle...

We have just returned from a few days away staying in The Stables at Shatterling House. This was the perfect location for us as we attended a wedding at nearby (5 minutes) Preston Court. The cottage was everything and more that was described and our hosts made sure that we everything was provided-even a welcoming bottle of wine. We paid...

We stayed at the Stables for a week, while taking short bicycle tours around Kent. I would absolutely recommend this as a self catering cosy cottage for two with all modern amenities and great location for exploring beautiful East Kent. We were met on arrival by Anne who showed us around the Stables and explained how everything worked and was...

This is a great place to stay, Anne and Rob are truly a lovely couple and the cottage is first class. They haven't stinted on anything. Perhaps the main thing is the bed a really comfortable one, giving you a really good nights sleep and so being refreshed the next day. But then everything else is the best, they really...

We stayed in Gardeners Cottage which was very cosy and pretty with a lovely back patio and garden to enjoy. The cottage is 18th century on the outside with all mod cons on the inside, losing none of it's cottage charm. The dish washer was a real treat too! Upon our arrival there were flowers in a vase, a hamper...
