“Perfect family retreat for large groups”

This is the fourth year of returning to Slippery Sams with good friends. We are a large group and Slippery Sams is perfect for us. Two interlocking houses, with all you need- separate kids and adults lounges ( if you require!), well equipped kitchens, lovely bedrooms with plenty of room for a group like ours ( 6 adults and 7 children). A beautiful garden with BBQ , lots of room to run around in. Great location for day trips- we went to Broadstairs, Margate, Canterbury, Dymchurch and Whitstable, all within easy reach. Lovely local pub up the road ( Hop Pocket) Jane and Ian are perfect hosts, welcoming , informative about the the local area and weather forecasts, happy to chat and make the group feel really welcome. It's also very affordable for the area and we are very lucky to have found such a fab place. We all feel really rested and happy with life after a stay at Slippery Sams! Cannot rave about the place and owners enough!

“Great!”
Reviewed May 23, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

My friends and I had a great time in Kent thanks to Ian and Jane, who are lovely people. We were 12 and there was still plenty of space! The place is cosy and clean. We'll definitely be back if we drop by Canterbury in the future!

“Couldn't have been better, not on price, comfort, location or service. Excellent.”

Spacious old-fashioned comfort and winter warmth in an excellent location for exploring Canterbury and the beautiful Kent countryside. Made all the better by the owner Ian - a cheerful, sensible and decent man. Would definitely book again next time we're down that way.

Was a pleasure to have the guys staying - shame the archeology wasn't better but there's always another dig.
