“The Perfect Place.”
Reviewed May 29, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Everything that you have read on the Stable Cottage web site is exactly what you will find if you decide to visit.

Situated within the Hoo Peninsular the cottages provide the complete holiday for all. The cottages are clean, comfortable and well equipped. The pool, games room and children's play room provide entertainment for all ages. The outdoor play area is vast. A new adventure playground has been added since our last visit and has been situated so as not to disturb other guests.

Should you wish to explore the peninsular there are many small villages to discover and you may even come across the graveyard as mentioned in 'Great Expectations'.

Further excursions to Rochester, Canterbury, and the ancient town of Whitstable are within easy access of the cottages. Further afield will take you to Dover where the ferries to France are frequent and and take only just over an hour to reach Calais.

I cannot reccomend Stable Cottages highly enough and should you choose to stay there, I hope that you enjoy your stay there as much as we do and we look forward to a further visit next year.

Anne Stanyer.

“Amazing”
Reviewed May 22, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We enjoyed a very quiet and restful surroundings of stable cottages thoroughly. We had a two bedroom cottage which is very ell equipped and neatly furnished . This part of Kent is so beautiful and offers much scope for a great rural holiday with the sea so close.The owners were great hosts, always willing to help but without intruding into our space. We stayed in a number of upmarket holiday cottages and stable cottages is up with the best.

“Awesome place to stay”
Reviewed May 19, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We stayed here as a family of four and found it an awesome place to stay. It's close to motorways, trains and most importantly it has a great atmosphere.
The kids loved the swimming pool and younger kids will enjoy the playground. There are friendly horses on site to feed a carrot or two.
At the end of the road you will find the Fenn Bell pub, where Andy will pour you a pint, give you a good feed and show you round the awesome zoo he has made on site (really, it's awesome and you have to see it). The site is fenced and secure and has lots of walking tracks for a walk or a run.
We will be back!

“Excellent place for holidays”
Reviewed May 8, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

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!

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.
