“Lovely building & great hostess, marital disagreement about the mattress!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

We arrived by train and had a pleasant stroll through the village at 9.00 pm on a beautiful warm evening, no sound apart from singing birds and a cuckoo, great excitement! Very friendly welcome from Nicky who explained the ingenious breakfast cupboard on the landing outside the room. Filter coffee for the morning is provided with instant, hot chocolate or tea for other times but she brought the jar of filter coffee for us immediately we mentioned we didn't usually drink instant. Fantastic power shower with lots of hot water, nice towels. Breakfast works well in the room, with plentiful provision of rolls, muffins and croissants, butter and preserves, cereals, coffee and tea with fresh milk, not little sachets. The only thing that would have improved the breakfast would have been a little microwave for warm milk in the coffee but that really is a minor point. We had the four poster bed with windows on three sides so beautifully light and airy. I slept like a top but my husband found the mattress a little soft for his poor back - mattresses are a very subjective item and others may prefer it. It felt odd to just leave in the morning, having settled up on arrival, because it was such a friendly place to stay.

Many thanks for your kind review. I don't want to rekindle any matrimonial disharmony but the mattress in the four poster room is being changed in two weeks time.

Staff welcoming and helpful. We were upgraded to the studio room, at no extra cost, which was comfortable, spacious and had small kitchen area. Continental breakfast items were supplied. Only one minor criticism - no jams or fillings supplied for the rolls. But I think the owner would have got them for us had we asked! Short drive from sea and only a few minutes from main road, so easy to access.

We came down for a surprise long weekend for my wife and I couldn't have chosen a better place. This was an ideal base to meet up with a very good friend who we hadn't seen for 30 years. The owner David was extremely helpful giving us a full rundown of the local restaurants and facilities. The breakfast in your own bedroom was well organised with hot croissants and rolls along with a variety of fruits, cereals, etc. Will definitely visit again in the future. Definitely recommend this place if you want to explore the area.

A wonderful old building in a small village. We were welcomed by David the owner who set us in the right direction and gave us all the local information for the village and nearby towns.
A small village but with 2 pubs, 5 restaurants, an olde worlde church.
We stayed in a lovely room which was very comfortable. The local pub ' The Bell Inn' was definately Olde Worlde with Jazz session at Jubilee Weekend and the lighting of the beacon at the church opposite.
Durlock Lodge was well worth the stay and we will be returning.
Do try it you will not be disappointed!!!!!!

Booked a last minute 5 night break at Stable Cottage, self catering accommodation at Durlock Lodge, and so pleased we did . The cottage/converted stable was an ideal base for exploring a lovely county, close to the sea , close to canterbury, and beautiful Kent countryside and walks on your doorstep. Minster itself is a lovely village with plenty of places to eat within a 5 minute walk from the cottage.
Stable cottage has everything you could ask for within a self catering holiday let, clean ,well equip with all mod cons . A big plus for us was we could take our little dog along with us too :) little touches made the cottage a lovely stay - the owner had left milk & fruit juice in the fridge ready for us, and a selection of cereals, jams etc. Appreciate someone who goes that extra mile. We had a lovely stay and would definately recommend . Hope to return next year .
