Very welcoming owners and great base for exploring Kent

We used this place as a base to go out on day and half day trips arourd Kent.The old dairy was just right for the two of us,we used the decked area to sit out on for meals and just to relax.The accomodation was very clean and well equipped for two people.
The village shop has the basics (wine,food,papers ETC).There are two pubs in the village,neither do food .We found some good places to eat in Herne bay and Whitstable.We used the bus to go to Canterburry and back,didn,t cost very much more than the car park would have cost for the day.
Kent has lots of small town that are full of history ,well worth a visit, we intend to use the old dairy again

A lovely, cosy, little love nest and the owners were so helpful and kind, kept a discreet distance to allow us our privacy. There with anything we needed, all in all a fantastic little hideaway with excellent access to all the beaches. The garden was delightful.

This is our fourth time using Sykes listed accommodation and we are delighted with the consistent high standard of the cottages.
The owners on this occasion, were extremely helpful in every way and we can not praise them highly enough.
Well done to Sykes, again!

The Old Dairy was comfortable and cosy, the owners were very friendly and helpful. It was a very good base from which to tour North and East Kent. The Butcher's Arms was a most unusual pub for us but a delight.

This was our first visit to Kent and we didn't know what to expect and were very pleasantly surprised. We totally enjoyed touring around and visiting places of interest. We love Cornwall and have been going there for many years but we will now add Kent to our list of places to visit.
