“Great cottage, excellent locaton”
Reviewed June 23, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Excellent cottage - fully kitted out with everything we needed - made for an excellent stay. Location also excellent - a couple of minutes stroll from the sea for an early morning walk, five minutes into Hythe town centre and well situated to explore Kent.

“Everything you want and more!”
Reviewed June 11, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Heron Cottage is perfectly located: close to the beach, near to shops, supermarkets and restaurants.
There is lots to see and do nearby for all ages from the miniature railway to the tranquil military canal.
The cottage is excellently equipped and decorated and furnished with loving attention to detail.

Heron Cottage is a really lovely, well appointed home. The owners use this cottage themselves, so know what will make the stay really comfortable and make sure it is available. It's location just a couple of hundred yards from the sea front and a short walk to the centre of Hythe makes it ideal. The kitchen is modern with everything you could need - certainly everything we needed. Cutlery, crockery and glassware was plentiful and in good condition with essentials like milk, butter, wine, cider and sauces already in the fridge-and ice cubes in the freezer!. The rooms were well furnished with comfortable seating. The sun room leading to the outdoor rear garden was particularly enjoyed. The utility room and toilet had outdoor crockery and glasses, a washing machine and space to store walking boots or shoes.The bathroom (with spa bath and shower) was light and spacious with a cupboard containing additional bedlinen and pillows. The top of the garden had the morning sun on the decking, so lovely to breakfast in that spot and later in the day the sun moved to the terraced area outside the back patio doors. We enjoyed lunch and a glass of wine there (the weather was very good almost all the while we were there). The central heating meant that we were able to feel cosy on the one miserable and wet day we experienced. The beds were comfortable with a selection of pillows, including a memory foam pillow in the cupboard if needed. We enjoyed our stay so much that we intend to book for next year, too. There is so much to see in the surrounding area.

“Perfect short break”
Reviewed April 15, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Spent a great Easter break at the cottage perfect for the 4 of us and the kids loved the bath :-). Great location and everything within walking distance. Nice touch to let us arrive and leave when we please as no guests before or after its the little simple touches that make all the difference. A real home from home
