“Wonderful cottage in peaceful location”
Reviewed May 31, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This is a lovely cottage, clean, comfortable and well equipped. The bedrooms and ensuites are spacious and finished to a high standard. The living area is compact but has everything we needed. The kitchen has everything you could need. The cottage doesn't have wifi but there is a friendly pub within a couple of minutes walk which does have it. The cottage allows you to have a real break from the pressures of everyday life. Our daughter and 3year old grandson were with us and he loved going to the pond to see the ducks. It is very quiet too, ensuring you can have a good night's sleep. Tracey and her husband are friendly and helpful.

“So relaxing and comfortable.”
Reviewed March 21, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Stayed three days for a well earned break. Groves Cottage is a beautifully equipped, spotlessly clean and comfortable cottage down a tiny lane within walking distance of the village amenities. We had everything we needed for our stay and were very comfortable. We were amazed at how quiet it was at certain points of the day when only birdsong could be heard. There's off road parking for two cars and as you'd expect in a tiny village you have to drive very carefully to get in and out of the lane as it's a bit narrow in places. Tracey is a wonderful host, she welcomed us on arrival, provided milk and cookies and familiarised us with all of the essentials like heating etc. If you want an escape to peace and quiet for a few days this is the place to stay, we will hopefully return before too long.

Wonderful little cottage in an excellent location with everything that we needed for a lovely weekend at the coast. Owners provided a very warm welcome and were extremely helpful with additional requests. We will definitely be returning!

“Amazing Cottage”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

person found this review helpful

We have just come back from a 4 night stay from this beautiful cottage, The kitchen has everything you need and more. The bedrooms are a great size so you can leave your luggage out and not trip over it but you can also put everything away as there are plenty of cupboards and draws.
The cottage is on a quiet street (with off street parking) in a lovely village. The village has a useful shop and also a post office but if you need bigger shops or petrol then Dover is only 4 miles away or Walmer is 5 miles.
The cottage was ideally located for us to vist all the historic sites in Dover, Deal and Canterbury.
