“Lovely Spot and all necessities provided - including good TV and WIFI”
Reviewed 6 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

It would be hard to beat the Granary - a very rural feel but not far from lovely pubs, a spacious garden for size of house and parking for two cars (1 large one small)Howletts Zoo and the New Dover Road Park and Ride in to Canterbury both just a short drive away past oast houses. We came for University of Kent Reunion and needed somewhere that was in reach of both campus and friends in Wingham so this was ideal. It had Twin room and a single upstairs with a downstairs double - worth bearing in mind as parents will be sleeping downstairs, so not ideal if you have really little ones (and downstairs flooring is cold tile, so not great for babies), but fine for us with a teen and a 6 year old. A kitchen come living and dining space felt very much like a student living space which was lovely for our nostalgia trip. Basics all there. Just remember it is night storage heating so if like us you are arriving at night and there is autumn chill ask for the heating to be put on before you arrive - and make sure you are clear about how to use it for your stay. Lovely responsive owner who has followed up suggestions for throws for people like us. We did not advise arrival time early enough for this to be done for us - though we found upstairs warm the downstairs double bed room was chilly first night, lovely and warm when night storage kicked in on the second (remember has to be turned on at the wall not just set on top!) Generous with towels and basic kitchenalia though we only really cooked pizza as not staying long. Take screw top wine - I cannot remember if there was a bottle opener but just a tip any way!

“Very clean, well equipped and comfortable Cottage”
Reviewed 10 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed in this cottage for a week over the Easter holidays and really enjoyed our stay. The owner is very friendly and helpful, the accommodation very clean, well equipped and cosy, it was very central to Howletts, Dover Castle and Canterbury so there was plenty to do. We will hopefully return in the future.

“Very clean and pretty holiday let!”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We loved this holiday let because it was very clean compared to other cottages we have rented. For the first time, we didn't have to clean anything in the kitchen upon arrival. Everything was in working order and the wifi connection was perfect! We also liked the fact that the cottage was very light and airy. The only comment we could make was that there wasn't a handshower in the bath upstairs, so everybody had to use the handshower downstairs. We mentioned this to the owner and he is thinking about installing one.

Overall, it was a lovely cottage!

“A little slice of Kent at its best”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed for 3 nights. 2 guests in total. The welcome and support from the owner was excellent as was communication leading up to the stay - trustworthy/reliable/friendly. The Granary is very well kitted out although we would have liked the upstairs bathroom to have a shower too. On a hot day, you might want to use an electric fan to keep the upstairs bedrooms cool. Even towels are provided. If you're keen on using a hairdryer, this is something you'll need to take. The location is quiet and about a 5 minute walk from a main road with a petrol station nearby (in case you wish to use public transport/need to get last minute groceries!). Having a car is ideal and a parking space is provided. Nearby is the Old Alms House property which is a delight too and that accommodates about 10 people. The Granary is well thought through and feels like home from home. It is easy to access Canterbury and other main seaside resorts within 15 to 20 minutes drive. So the location is great too. We'd recommend and hope to be back ourselves!

We felt so lucky to find this lovely house for a weekend break in kent with our young children,. Spotlessly clean, modern, welll equipped. In a countryside location, 10-15mins from kent. We had such a good time and would thoroughly recommend it. Includes 3 actual bedrooms and lovely lounge and kitchen.
