It was our second stay in Stable Cotages. We did see some improvements in the cottage such as a brand new bathroom which is very clean and functional. We spent very good holidays for a whole week. The view from the cottage is so peaceful and charming. An excellent overview of the Thames estuary and some rural countryside. Just relaxing. In addition, the kids could enjoy some distraction such as swing, ping-pong or pool. Everyone has his fun time. Just brilliant!
A lovely comfortable cottage with amazing river views. Pool, steam room, gym, games room and plenty of outdoor seating and grassed areas to enjoy, even a football pitch.
Our last visit to the UK will always be remembered for our stay at the Stable Cottages before flying home to Australia. It was the ideal location to spend our final days. The facilities were many and all excellent and so relaxing. The hosts were always available for advice and assistance. We will definitely stay there again on our next visit to the UK Many, many thanks to the Symonds family.

Our cottage was extremely comfortable, warm, clean and exceptionally well equiped and was ideal for our needs of visiting family in Rochester only 15 to 20 minutes away. The owner's were very accomodating and helpful.
We stayed here a couple of years ago and decided to come back in September for a mini break. The cottage was spotless and the weather was good ( which helped). I spent ages again watching the shipping on the river Thames and Estuary which can be easily seen from the cottages. The owner Mr.Simmonds helped start my wife's car one day which saves us waiting for the RAC. We used the pool twice and found it just right for a relaxing swim, it may not be " Olympic size" but certainly large enough given the number of cottages on this site. We hope to come back in 2017 for another week. The only negative comment ( no reflection on the cottages or owners) was some woman who seemed to be constantly arguing with her husband ( I assume). She was awful and gave me a growling look when I tried to say " morning" one day. Apart from her, the stay was better than before.
We stayed in Cottage One for seven and a half weeks and it was very comfortable, a great size, clean, warm and very well equipped. It had everything that my wife, children and I needed. There was a separate utility room, with 2 washing machines, tumble drier, ironing facilities and additional freezer space which was very useful. Our dog equally was welcomed and it wasn't a problem to keep him on his lead in the grounds as there was a clear designated area to walk him. Outside the grounds there were fantastic walks where he ran for miles off the lead. The owners, Kirsty and Jason were really nice and helpful. I can see why their cottages were so busy as they offer a great standard of accommodation.
I booked to have an indoor pool this year, but i would not have booked this property due to the resricted hours on the use of the pool, every day without fail we had to find some one to unroll the cover. The illustration was false, as the impression in the photos showed a big pool but in reality any more than 5 swimmers and the pool was full. I am a diabetic and i needed the heating on at night it was not avaiable. Finally because we had not vacated on time the owner kept 20% of our damage desposit something i never had to pay before i felt this was a RIPOFF and an appalling greedy attitude of the owner. WE PAID A DAMAGE DEPOSIT AND DID NOT BREAK ANYTHING!!!!
