A great place to stay
Had a very pleasant stay albeit brief. Greeted and welcomed on arrival and made to feel very welcome. Stayed in the Garden Room which was roomy, bright and clean. Lovely breakfast with a good choice of options.

Good spacious b & b
Ideally situated, only 10 minutes from Canterbury. Lovely clean and comfortable rooms plus a lovely cooked breakfast and or cereals and toast, just what you need to start the day right. Parking is free but there is only enough for 4 cars around the back and big cars could find it a bit of a squeeze, the only other minor niggle is that the tv had poor reception so watching anything was a bit hit and miss. Overall though I would recommend a stay here.
