    This property is certainly a jewel of a holiday cottage. The decor is beautiful and it’s probably the best equipped holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in. The owners have thought of everything, including a welcome basket containing essentials such as bread, butter, pate, jam and Prosecco... and there were logs for the wood burning stove in the downstairs sitting area - a great hit with the male members of our party who all seem to adore feeding a live fire. We were a family birthday celebration including our two grandsons aged 14 months and 10 years, and there were stair gates, a travel cot and a high chair, which certainly made life easier for all concerned. There is a very inviting outside space with seating and a bbq etc, but as it was an extremely windy March weekend, we couldn’t make use of it (we shall have to come back!), but we were very warm and snug inside. Both Sandwich and Deal are a few minutes drive away, and both are worth a visit. The property itself is extremely isolated but on the plus side it is very peaceful and the children liked the sheep and lambs in the field just outside our front door; as a family with children we had planned to eat in during the evenings anyway so the lack of anything directly on our doorstep wasn’t an issue for us. Any complaints? Absolutely none. Would we stay again? Definitely. A huge thank you to the owners, who were friendly (our daughter met the farmer’s wife when they arrived and we spoke to the farmer during our stay) and very helpful. All in all, a 5* stay.

    We had an excellent long weekend stay at The Coach House at the beginning of December. The house is an amazing barn conversion where every comfort has been provided and everything is of the best quality, down to the underfloor heating and fantastically equipped kitchen. Even though the weather wasn't great the house was incredibly warm and cosy. The owners couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Our party consisted of 5 adults and 2 children with ages ranging from 6 to 70 and we all agreed that The Coach House provided wonderful, luxurious accommodation and we can't wait to go back.
