Just got back from a week at the Stables (12th to 19th August). Two adults and our 7yr old Grandson.
This is a lovely cottage with everything that you need for a relaxing week or as a base for exploring Kent and London.
Spotlessly clean with good quality beds and bedding. (If you like a firm pillow, bring this with you as the pillows are feather filled and luxuriously soft).
Mark was on hand for information and advice, but was also respectful of privacy etc. He had the balance perfect.
If you like dogs, Bramble and Fudge are a delight, visiting regularly to say hello.
Our Grandson loved the swimming pool and playing with Mark's Great Niece and Nephew. In fact we loved the whole grounds, William loved collecting fruit straight from the trees and making a fruit crumble!!
I would recommend The Tudor Rose - just outside the gates - wonderful food and service.
After a busy day in London, it was lovey coming back to such a peaceful setting.
Tucked away in a huge walled garden, behind private gates, lies the impressive Upnor Castle House and its sidekick, The Stables; a quaint little cottage, with lots of well thought out little touches to make it feel like home.
The expansive grounds include a tennis court, croquet lawn and swimming pool. The pool was tucked behind 'the big house' but was fully accessible to us throughout our stay. Upnor Castle is visible at the bottom of the garden as is the river Medway. The property is very central and is a perfect base for Diggerland, Legoland and London. Would definitely return when next in the area, the kids hope that's very soon, they loved it here!
