“Very clean and pretty holiday let!”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We loved this holiday let because it was very clean compared to other cottages we have rented. For the first time, we didn't have to clean anything in the kitchen upon arrival. Everything was in working order and the wifi connection was perfect! We also liked the fact that the cottage was very light and airy. The only comment we could make was that there wasn't a handshower in the bath upstairs, so everybody had to use the handshower downstairs. We mentioned this to the owner and he is thinking about installing one.

Overall, it was a lovely cottage!

“A little slice of Kent at its best”

We stayed for 3 nights. 2 guests in total. The welcome and support from the owner was excellent as was communication leading up to the stay - trustworthy/reliable/friendly. The Granary is very well kitted out although we would have liked the upstairs bathroom to have a shower too. On a hot day, you might want to use an electric fan to keep the upstairs bedrooms cool. Even towels are provided. If you're keen on using a hairdryer, this is something you'll need to take. The location is quiet and about a 5 minute walk from a main road with a petrol station nearby (in case you wish to use public transport/need to get last minute groceries!). Having a car is ideal and a parking space is provided. Nearby is the Old Alms House property which is a delight too and that accommodates about 10 people. The Granary is well thought through and feels like home from home. It is easy to access Canterbury and other main seaside resorts within 15 to 20 minutes drive. So the location is great too. We'd recommend and hope to be back ourselves!

We felt so lucky to find this lovely house for a weekend break in kent with our young children,. Spotlessly clean, modern, welll equipped. In a countryside location, 10-15mins from kent. We had such a good time and would thoroughly recommend it. Includes 3 actual bedrooms and lovely lounge and kitchen.

“A great place for a quiet relaxing stay.”
Reviewed September 23, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We used The Granary while visiting family. Although there were only 2 of us there was plenty of space for 6 people. Everything was new and lovely to have matching china, cutlery etc. Everything had been thought of complete to picnic plates etc for outside.
It was exceptionally quiet and very rare for any traffic to pass by. With no street lights it was wonderful to come back in the evenings and see stars.

We spent a great week at The Granary in April. It's a lovely house in immaculate condition as recently renovated. We have 3 young children and found it very child friendly and easy to use. It has a beautiful large garden and is set in a very quiet location. It had everything we needed including travel cot and high chair. Great location with lots to do locally for both sunny and rainy days out. We will definitely be going back and would highly recommend a stay here.
