“Perfection”
Reviewed July 3, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We spent a 4 night break at Little Impetts and just one word - Perfection.

Its everything and more than you hope for - on first look entering the lounge area we were both almost speechless with the total perfection of this place.

Spotlessly clean, with all the comforts of home, a beautiful flag stone floor in the lounge, which was most welcome as we stayed during the heatwave!

Ideally placed for touring around, we visited Herne Bay, Sandwich, Broadstairs, Margate and Folkstone (latter two would give a miss incidentally - both left a lot to be desired) but other places are stunning.

Beautiful walks direct from the cottage - although city dwellers be warned....Little Impetts is really in the heart of the countryside, so no convenience stores on your doorstep with the 'local' shop being a drive away, but part of the charm.

We had a warm welcome from Lisa upon arrival. We had gone for some real peace and thats exactly what we got.

Cannot recommend Little Impetts enough - we will return for another visit soon

“Wonderful hospitality, spotlessly clean, highly recommended”
Reviewed May 29, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I stayed at Little Impetts for a short break with two children (aged 16 and 12). The cottage is beautiful and spotlessly clean with every amenity and comfort you could wish for.

We went without a car, but managed to get there from Minster station very easily . The buses run from five minutes away to Canterbury and there are lots of beautiful walks as well.

Its perfect for a break - and just to sit and watch the birds on the thatch and let your mind wander. Our host, Tim even ran us to the local shop where we picked up some of Lisa's lovely fudge. Really friendly and kind people.

We would definitely go back!

Reviewed May 26, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed at Little Impetts for the bank holiday weekend. It was lovely as mentioned before the photos do not show how charming and comfortable the cottage is. It has lovely comfy beds, powerful shower and is fully supplied with everything you could need. The location is wonderful very peaceful with fabulous walks on the doorstep and great pubs all around that provide great value food. We ate at the Rising Sun and Dog and Duck both were very friendly and service great. We had our dog and son with us and Tim and Lisa made us very welcome. It is a great location to visit; whitstable, broad stairs, ramsgate and margate with lots to do and wonderful views of the countryside. It was a real shame to leave as it was so relaxing and peaceful. We will definitely return and recommend highly.

Little Impetts is the ideal place to relax with the family. Tim and Lisa have thought of everything even down to coasters and place mats! There is nothing missing from this cottage. The beds were comfy and as a light sleeper I slept very well. The cottage is clean and tidy and well kept. We will definitely be back in the future!!!

“Comfy, cosy cottage situated well to discover the east side of Kent.”
Reviewed August 25, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

'Little Impetts' is a beautiful old cottage which served well as our home for the week. Lisa gave a warm welcome and she is extremely talented at baking cakes. Would definitely recommend the lemon drizzle cake. Extremely comfy beds aided restful sleep and the cottage is situated centrally which enables you to travel to the coastal, sandy bays quickly and with ease. There are plenty opportunities for walking and taking in the beautiful scenery Kent has to offer. Top tip: If you want to visit Ramsgate Tunnels then book in advance to avoid disappointment. Also the Shell Grotto, although a short visit, is a fabulous, awe inspiring experience. If you're into history then visit Canterbury as it has a vast range of buildings from all eras. I would definitely recommend 'Little Impetts' as a good holiday home.

This cottage was ideal for us as a family - parent and two children. It had everything we needed. The kitchen is small but is perfectly formed it had everything you would require with a bit of ingenuity. The whole cottage was very clean and we appreciated the use of wifi (children!), direct access to a washing machine (Mum!) and very comfy beds (all of us!) I also liked the ipod/clock dock upstairs.and a lovely dressing table. There was plenty of storage space for us three for clothes, stuff and food. When the weather was good enough we liked sitting outside. It felt very private and quiet. We received a very warm welcome, there was even a bucket and spade ready for our youngest if required. I particularly liked the fresh flowers in vases in the sitting room as I love flowers. The cottage is ideally located with plenty to do and shops and pubs are nearby for food. I would have liked to do more of the walks nearby but that's children for you. I would particularly recommend Wingham Wildlife Park which is only a few minutes away. Dover Castle was really easy to get to and well worth a visit.
All in all a very happy stay.
