“Simply the best!”
Reviewed November 22, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

First class fully equipped accommodation, maintained to a very high standard. The property was warm, clean and comfortable and set in beautiful grounds surrounded by parkland. Country Retreats represent excellent value for money and we would recommend these without reservation. The owners, Maureen and Robin French can be commended for their very high standards.

“exactly what we were looking for”
Reviewed August 16, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Syndale park is ideally located in lovely green surroundings. Our grand children loved the playground and watching the sheep or other animals. We stayed in oak cottage which we found very comfortable. It had everything we needed and was very clean. Robin an Maureen did everything they could to make us feel welcome. There are many things to do and see in the area, even with small children. We are very happy with our stay and warmly recommend Syndale Park as a holiday let.

“An ideal holiday home in the beautiful county of Kent.”
Reviewed September 6, 2011 for a stay in June 2011

Mr and Mrs French make you most welcome and work tirelessly to ensure your holiday is memorable and enjoyable. The cottages are in a peaceful and attractive location, and also give easy access to Faversham town and the links to the major roads and railway for the rest of Kent.
The cottages are well maintained and comfortably equipped.
We have spent many enjoyable holidays here, of varying lengths and at differing times of the year, and would have no hesitation in recommending the Country Retreat.

“Lovely cottage accommodation in great setting”
Reviewed August 25, 2011 for a stay in August 2011

Very nice cottage kept with love and care by Mrs French in lovely park off London road. All commodities (beds, kitchen, bathroom) were excellent, felt like home. Had breakfast while spotting sheep and squirrels through the window. My daughter enjoyed the many children's play devices (such as a zip-line) available.

Very convenient for either road travel (A2, M2) or railway journeys to/from London/Dover.... Faversham is a most beautiful town 15 minutes far from Canterbury. A great starting point to explore Kent. All three supertore brands in town, and market thrice a week.

These were our first holidays in England and were so happy with the cottage we have made our minds to make it costumary from now on. So future landladies must thank Mrs French!
