We had the most wonderful weekend in early October celebrating a golden wedding, a 70th and 3 x 40th birthdays. The oast house was spotless and very well equipped with plenty of room for all of us. We made good use of the games room and there was plenty to do in the surrounding area. Can' wait to go back again.

Eight adults and eight boys, age range 2 to 11, had a wonderful week here. There is plenty to do in the area, railways, castles, coast, Canterbury, but plenty to do in the grounds and games room too. Feeding the fish in the lake was a job taken most seriously by the younger children, while the older boys enjoyed their rowing lessons. We never even Read moregot round to using the fire pit but had two barbecues and tried out the pizza oven. Planning a return visit! Hide

All rooms had all we needed, mostly spent our time outside on the large decking area, kids enjoyed the boat and feeding the fish, also the play area. The games room is a fab addition which all enjoyed!
