Thanks Mike and Barbara, you have got the Lodge and your service just right - attentive when needed, and discreet when not.
The Lodge combines modern facilities, with log cabin cosy charm and eclectic décor which makes it like nowhere we have ever stayed before.
The location gives great access to walks, castles, beaches and everything that Kent has to offer - the village butcher / baker / deli is wonderful, and the hot tub is an inspired idea and a great place to ease away the aches of a long walk.
The self catering facilities are good, but the choice of great pubs within walking distance means you don't have to cook unless you want to.
Thanks - a great place to re-invigorate, and spend a "special" birthday - Dorthe, Jay and Izzy the dog :-)

“Perfect romantic spot”
Reviewed February 18, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Myself and my now fiancè stayed at The lodge late January and could not have wished for a more beautiful setting.

On arrival we met Barbara who was lovely and welcoming and as soon as we walked into The Lodge you cant help but feel relaxed, the decor and furnishings are quirky yet homely and you have everything you need and more for this type of rental and had one of the best night sleeps ive ever had. The location is secluded and peaceful with only the odd dog walker in sight. On the first of our two nights stay we went for a great meal in Maidstone and retreated back to The Lodge for a few drinks and a late night dip in the hot tub. I had planned to propose to my girlfriend during our stay and couldn't have hoped for a more romantic setting. A glass of bubbly in the hot tub, while snowing went down very well and thankfully she said yes!

If you are looking for a romantic spot where you can escape for a few days then this is a place you wont regret booking. We managed to meet mike just as we left and again could not be more welcoming. I personally would like to thank you both as this is a memory that will stay with us forever and WOW what a memory.

An amazing space with relaxing country scenes. We spent our first Christmas as a married couple here and it was made to be so special with the owners' thoughtfulness and kindness. We have made some amazing memories here and are hoping to go back next year!

“Lovely escape”

I have just returned from a great weekend break at the Lodge. It is perfect for two people (and a dog). The garden has lots of wildlife and is right beside Bearstead woods. There are plenty of places to eat nearby and a lovely bakery and butchers a short walk away. The hot tub is great and the accommodation is very private. Although it is compact it is well equipped and there are lots of nice little touches including a box to enable the large TV to receive netflix, iplayer and other viewers although we didn't get around to using it. The under floor heating works really well and we were very cosy even though it was extremely cold and frosty outside at night.

“A wonderful place to stay”

We had a wonderful weekend. The owners couldn't do enough for us, going above and beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable. The hot tub was brilliant, the photos don't do it (or the rest of the property) any justice.

The location was perfect as we were very close to london, but it still felt like we were in the middle of nowhere. It was really close to a lot of activities we wanted to do, including kayaking at Mote Park (definitely recommend) and a wonder round leeds castle (although we decided not to go in the end because of the weather!)

Inside the lodge is everything you could need, although the oven was a bit complex so we just cooked on the hobs all weekend! We also had a BBQ - again, the equipment was provided for.

I went with a friend,but If you're looks for a romantic get away then it's perfect! If I end up taking a break in the area again, I would definitely see if the lodge is available... I couldn't recommend it enough.
