“Lovely cottage in beautiful location”
Reviewed August 16, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had a lovely holiday here - the cottage was immacualte and the owner friendly and helpful. There is lots to do in the area and we were blessed with good weather. You do need a acr as it is well off the beaten track, but if you like peace and quiet it is perfect. Recommended

“Peaceful retreat in the beautiful Kent hills”
Reviewed June 6, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We spent a long weekend in this lovely cottage. Susan and Ray have thought of everything, making the cottage a very comfortable, well equipped and restful home-from-home. Kind touches like fresh eggs and special provisions for my lactose-intolerant husband were a lovely treat. The setting is very peaceful, with just birdsong to accompany an evening glass in the sun. The photos of the cottage are very accurate - and they don't convey the spaciousness of the living space and master bedroom. The kitchen has everything we needed for home cooking. We enjoyed a wonderful weekend visiting Canterbury, the coast and countryside of Kent. It was perfect. Thank you Susan and Ray

“One of the best self-caters we have stayed in”
Reviewed May 24, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The owners gave immediate response to our enquiries and acknowledgement of our deposit etc. The property was immaculate, roomy and well-equipped with everything you could possibly need. A very relaxing place in a peaceful location down country roads but very close to excellent road systems giving quick and easy access to the many places to visit. The owners were very helpful with ideas of places to go but not intrusive. An excellent place to stay. We liked it so much we have already booked to go back next year!

“Very high standard once again”
Reviewed April 21, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

A year on and delighted to find standards are as high as last time. Susan ensures a spotlessly clean and comfortable home from home. Everything is provided as you would expect, but we were also given fresh eggs and milk in the fridge, a lovely vase of irises to enjoy, and an Easter egg each as it was Easter holiday weekend. The cottage is situated in peaceful countryside and well sited for enjoying all that Kent has to offer. We found it very easy to relax once again in such a lovely self catering cottage.

“A peaceful cottage in a beautiful part of the country.”
Reviewed September 5, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

I stayed at Shaws Farm Cottage with my sister and my young daughter. We had a lovely couple of days visiting family nearby. The cottage was everything we hoped it would be: clean, comfortable, quiet, with stunning scenery and very friendly helpful owners. We will definitely return again as soon as we can!

“Excellent in every way”
Reviewed July 10, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Shaws Farm Cottage was perfect - spotlessly clean, large and comfortable, kitchen was fully equipped, decorating was lovely and relaxing, views of the sheep and countryside were exquisite and the host and hostess warm and welcoming. It doesn't get any better than this.
