“A Hidden Gem Of Tranquillity In The Heartland Of Kent's Beautiful Countryside ...”
Reviewed April 27, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

person found this review helpful

In respect of this wonderful holiday rental, clearly, all the previous comments that have gone before, have said it all.

Moreover, the fact that this particular cottage, has gained a 5 star rating, from all who have taken the time to write a review, says all that you need to know about this wonderful property and the surrounding area.

So I will keep it very simple and just say ...

It is inevitably the case, that when seeking out a holiday location, that you hope to find that one golden nugget of a holiday destination, that one perfect holiday experience and that one all providing holiday rental.

Well, take a deep breath, because when you stay at 'Robin Cottage' as we did, or at 'Housemartin' close by, you will find all three!

The cottage was not only comfortable, very clean and excellently equipped but it also had the added advantage of a walled garden which. weather permitting, provided a further area of calm and relaxation.

Add to all of this, the personal warmth and generosity of spirit of the property's owner Lynda and you know that you have found a true 'hidden gem'.

When considering the tranquility of the surrounding countryside and the enchantment from visiting the like of the historic market town of Faversham and the ancient City of Canterbury, to name but two of many, together with the multitudinous coastal and countryside walks that one can experience as we seek to quench our exploratory thirst, for that one special holiday memory that will last a lifetime.... it is no surprise that the County of Kent has been justifiably credited with the enviable title of being 'The Garden Of England'.... I'll say no more!

So, book with every confidence and immerse yourselves in a wonderful home grown holiday experience .. you won't be disappointed... : )

Peter.

“Well appointed beautiful location perfect host.”
Reviewed July 11, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The cottage has been equipped with the most up to date appliances and furnishings. Great thought has gone into the decoration of the cottage. Our host Lynda made us most welcome and we were delighted by the welcome basket filled with all the essentials to start your stay. The location is perfect for trips to Canterbury and other great places in the area. The private garden that comes with the cottage is a huge bonus. I would highly recommend Robin Nest and hope to return one day soon,

“Top rate accommodation, would definitely return”
Reviewed April 17, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Lynda is such a considerate owner, everything has been thought about from furnishings, equipment, local information and welcome pack.
The cottage is in a great location, beautifully furnished and equipped, clean, extremely comfortable, warm and beds that provide a wonderful night's sleep.
Loved the walled garden, which is very private and a real sun-trap.
Would definitely recommend and hope to return - probably the best holiday cottage we've stayed in.
