“Great get away”
Reviewed September 6, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We were only able to get away for a couple of days break this summer, but this was a perfect base for us. Kate was really welcoming, and the delicious cake she left for us on arrival was a lovely touch. The caravan was clean, tidy and well equipped. The only thing I would suggest is maybe a couple of coat hooks? We would certainly come back again if we are in Kent again. Thank you!

“Peaceful Orchard Nr Canterbury”
Reviewed June 16, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Well kept and tidy setting. Only two permanently sited caravans both with outside decking area.
Good centre for touring. Quiet /peaceful haven. would recommend to anyone. Probably more suited to touring adults rather than beach seeking families.

“Peaceful Retreat”
Reviewed June 5, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Stayed for four nights and wish it could have been longer. The Summer was exactly as advertised and lived up to all the reviews. After a long journey to Kent it we had a warm welcome from Kate and the home made cake was very welcome with a nice cup of tea. There was also a vase of fresh flowers on the table which was a rally nice touch.
Great to get up in the morning and watch the rabbits and pheasants together with the sheep. The weather was good but not really warm enough to sit and enjoy the views from the deck however I can imagine it would be super to sit with a drink and enjoy the peace.
The caravan was very clean and everything provided for a great stay (would agree with the comment by another person about hooks on the doors but that it is very minor point).
All in all we would not hesitate to spend another holiday in this very comfortable caravan in such a beautiful setting.

“Idyllic Kent countryside location, quiet, relaxing and comfortable”
Reviewed May 31, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We were delighted with Orchard Cottage and 'The Summer'. We loved the rural location. The whole place is immaculately kept, with the accommodation having lovely views over the orchard. The owners have thought of so many little details around the place and Kate was a friendly host.
Our kids really enjoyed meeting the lambs, ponies, pigs and other animals. They were all very well behaved and were very quiet (the animals, not our kids!).
It was a very short drive to Chilham (a must see village with some stunning walks) and not at all far from Canterbury. The location for us was perfect.
The Summer was clean, comfortable and lacked nothing. We would be happy spending a lot longer there. In fact we plan to in the future...!

“lovely and relaxing”
Reviewed March 30, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

A lovely location. Lovely three bedroom mobile home with everything you need. Kate was friendly and showed us the animals (you cant feed them as they are on special diets but you can join Kate at feeding times). Kate even baked a delicious cake which was a welcome surprise that we enjoyed that evening. Close to Canterbury and picturesque Chilham (visit if you get a chance). If I could recommend a tiny improvement, it would be to have been hooks on backs of doors to hang coats..but thats all. Everything was perfect!
Look forward to visiting again.

“Fantastic accommodation in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed September 8, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We found Orchard Cottage Holidays purely by chance when looking for weekend accommodation for a wedding in the local area. From initial contact Kate was extremely helpful and very prompt in getting back to us. 2 days before we arrived we had an email from Kate telling us that there had been a cancellation for the larger of the 2 homes so she would put us in that one giving the three of us more space for the same price-an extremely thoughtful and kind gesture.
Orchard Cottage is located in beautiful countryside, feeling like you are in the middle of nowhere yet close to major towns and cities. We arrived to be greeted by a friendly Kate and a lovely homemade lemon drizzle cake as well as a useful welcome pack of goodies. The mobile home was large, clean, nicely decorated and well equipped for any self catering stay. As mentioned the countryside is stunning and the decking in front of the mobile home allowed for us to sit outside and enjoy this. Kate's hospitality continued lending my husband and brother locks for their bikes as well as leaving security lights on for us when we returned late at night from the wedding.
Overall we had a fantastic stay in a beautiful location with great accommodation and an extremely welcoming and helpful host-we were only sad we couldn't stay longer but hope to return.

“A great find”
Reviewed August 6, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My wife and I stayed for 5 days at Orchard Cottage and thoroughly enjoyed it. My heart usually sinks when I hear of static caravans, but we were most pleasantly surprised upon our arrival to find an immaculately clean and tidy caravan set in beautifully manicured grounds - complete with sheep, pigs chickens and horses (all safely contained I might add!) It is quiet and peaceful, with only one other caravan on site, and has an outside deck for sitting on with a cup of tea in the morning or a beer in the evening.

The owners are very friendly and do their best to accommodate any requests one might have. The location is perfect for using as a base to see the many attractions in the area, and we will not hesitate to stay again. Great value for money.
