We recently spent a week at The Granary on a break with another couple. Right from the first booking everything ran like clockwork. James, the owner, is a real gent and dealt with our enquiries promptly and efficiently. He provided us with lots of details about location etc prior to our visit and was waiting for us on arrival when he showed us around the property and explained to us how everything worked.
We enjoyed an excellent week there. The cottage is cosy, clean and warm and had everything we needed for our stay. The location is lovely, nice and quiet but only a few miles from Canterbury which you can access by bus should you prefer to leave the car behind. The bus stop is about a 10 minute walk from the cottage.
We toured all over Eastern and Southern Kent and into Sussex on days out. We even had a day over in France as Dover is only about 30 minutes away. Roughly £40 for the car and 4 persons was a bargain not to be missed.
On departure day James came over, had a quick look round and handed back our bond in cash, very good, no waiting for a refund.
We would definitely recommend the property and would be happy to stay there again should we be visiting the area in the future.
Thank you James, was a pleasure to meet you.
The Granary is tucked away down a quiet lane in Wingham Well. From our first contact with owner James B, he couldn't have been more helpful. He met us at the property to show us around, then met us again at the end of the stay to return the deposit. The property itself is very nice - rustic from the outside but up to date with all mod cons on the inside. Seeing the rabbits on the lawn each evening we got back became part of the holiday! Everything we needed was provided, and it was a convenient location for Canterbury and much of Kent. We would recommend The Granary to anyone wanting a quiet holiday in Kent.
We stayed at the granary for just over 1 week while taking a short holiday in Kent with the children. It is a great peaceful location which being fairly central means you can get to most places in a short amount of time.
The granary is perfectly adequate for the four of us however it is a bit compact so if you want lots of space you may want to consider other properties.
Lovely area. We had a peaceful holiday. Good value for the money. Good base for visiting the area & road links.
We spent 17 days at The Cranary, it is cosy house in a quiet area with a big garden. There is just enough space for four adults and two children. It is clean. Canterbury and other towns or beaches (e.g. Dover, Sandwich, Broadstairs, Ramsgate, Ashford) are easy to reach by car.
We enjoyed our stay there and can recommend the accommodation.
This cottage has a very well equipped kitchen and even contained many little extras such as soap, washing up liquids and cleaning products. A clean property.
It is truly a country retreat,when sitting in the garden which captures the sun all day one can listen to the birds.
Only slight problem which James warns us about was if 5 people tried to shower one after the other the hot water wasn't sufficient. There is a boost switch but the real answer was to spread out getting up times.
The owner James was very helpful and welcoming and I would definitely recommend this property.
