We (couple and 2 y old; we brought a cot) stayed in the very atmospheric and comfortable Oast House. Sean and Corinna are adorable and truly excellent hosts; one feels very welcome, pampered even. From the welcoming refreshments to the farewell travel advice; too many excellent details to list, each of which adds to feeling welcome. After coming home one realises that the usual minor discomforts or imperfections of other places, that one takes in one's stride so to speak, were simply absent. Instead you come across many little details that make you feel at home.
Main thing is, the hosts definitely care about your comfort and well-being and succeed in doing so on that fine line between discretion and warmth. Oh and let's not forget to mention breakfast. Breakfast!

Godwin’s Oast House is special. There’s nowhere like it. You are in the heart of Kent’s history and rural life but with en-suite comfort,fine furnishings, king sized sleigh bed and mod cons.
