My namesake, Jacqui, runs with her husband, a lovely B&B in this delightful and historic part of Kent. The loving care they have expended, not to mention, hard cash, on this very old threshing shed is fantastic. It has now become a delightful home from home with every possible convenience. But it is the warm welcome and helpful guidance as to local attractions, opening times, where to go and what to do that makes one feel welcome.
Not to mention the fab breakfast cooked freshly to order - do try the homemade marmalades particularly kiwi and kaffir lime leaf if available!
Only one small niggle, the tv in our room was badly positioned - very difficult to watch from the bed. You could watch it from the only chair in the room but how many of us do that!
