Oak Cottage Testimonials

Peaceful Remote and Friendly

Two of us stayed at Oak Cottage for two weeks whilst studying at ABDO College in Godmersham in September 2012 and have already booked for our next block in 2013.

The cottage is absolutely gorgeous, the welcoming off Nigel and Wendy was amazingly friendly and we were made to feel right at home. Nigels directions to the cottage were invaluable!

It is lovely to be surrounded by fields and animals. The cottage is remote and feels very safe and secure but is close to Ashford and Canterbury for anything you may need.

It was a bit cold to go swimming in the swimming lake but we sat down dipping our feet in the relaxing atmosphere.
The cottage has everything you could want and is very comfortable.

Our stay was fantastic and we can't wait to get down there again.

Beautiful Properties!

I had been planning a surprise weekend away for my husbands 30th birthday and came across this beautiful cottage! My husband and I arrived on the Friday and was delighted with the small 2 bed cottage.

It has everything you need for a relaxing weekend away, stunning gardens surround the properties and provide a gorgeous view from the bedrooms. The surprise for my husband was that our friends joined us for another 2 nights in the bigger cottage next door.

This cottage was equally as lovely and had the added bonus of a secluded garden where we had a few bbq's and played table tennis and bowls!

We all enjoyed a long walk through the fields and woodland areas, which surrounded the cottages. Nigel and Wendy we're very welcoming and made our stay very comfortable. Not one of our party wanted to leave! We will definitely be returning for another stay! :)

  • Perfect Position-Great  Access to South East U.K.

    We stayed in Oak cottage for a whole month, 2 adults, 3 children we all enjoyed the stay and would definitely stay here again, it is perfectly positioned between Canterbury & Ashford. You could be in London or France within an hour depending on your transport choice or enjoy a nice country walk or drive from the property and also close to a number of family friendly attractions, Our hosts Nigel & Wendy took every opportunity to make us feel welcome.

    Excellent-Can’t Be Faulted

    My partner and I have stayed in many hotels and decided instead to opt for a holiday rental instead. Having had a bad experience recently with a cottage we rented we were anxious about our experience of Oak Cottage.

    Safe to say our concerns were lifted as soon as we were greeted with Nigel as soon as we arrived. Excellent customer care (esp. when we ran out of butter on a cold wintry night in the middle of nowhere !)

    The cottage itself is amazing as are the grounds. To visit in the summer is now on our agenda to see the surrounding gardens in all their glory. Thank you for making us so welcome.

    Lovely, Idyllic and Friendly

    Great service, even had fresh eggs from the hens and ducks. The house was beautiful great facilities main bedroom overlooked the lakes.

    Great Base for Exploring North Downs and East Kent

    We had a lovely time. Our hosts were really friendly; arranging to get food in advance from the local barn shop was great, both for convenience and quality.

    As it was February, and rather damp, I look forward to going back at a time when we can maybe enjoy some good weather and sit outside with a glass of wine on an evening. The cottage is secluded and peaceful, with great views.

    Would I recommend this vacation rental to my best friend?   Yes.

    Fantastic spot...and so friendly

    We stayed at Oak cottage for a few days and it really is a lovely place, down a quiet lane, in beautiful countryside. Nigel and Wendy who run it were really friendly and helpful, thank you very much!

    Séjour Parfait

     A perfect stay in a friendly atmosphere. The owners welcomed us upon arrival, and we were able to have a relaxing stay in a well equipped house (no need to bring anything; towels and bed linen available, complete kitchen inventory and washing machine that was very clean).

    The house and surroundings were well adapted for our children (2 and 4 years old) with a high chair, cot, plastic plates, playground on site and forest nearby. They had a lot of fun with all the animals (rabbits, horses, and the owner took them along for a duck- and chicken-egg hunt).

    The village shop is nearby and a 24h supermarket is at 10 minutes by car. The owner is available and trustworthy, and we were refunded our deposit straight after our departure. Certainly an address to be advised, and we will return with pleasure.

    Short Break Visiting London and Kent

    Conveniently located between Dover, Canterbury and London (1h30 drive from the center), we stayed in this lovely cottage in the wilderness. The hosts are friendly, the house clean, well equipped and comfortable. Sheets and towels are provided.

    A beautiful landscaped garden and a pond for swimming embellish the scene. Our hosts recommend visiting places and pubs (we tested the "Plough", very good!) It is ideal for a family of 4 or 5 people. A haven of peace after a busy day in London! We highly recommend this address.

    Beautiful Location, Great Facilities, Very Comfortable

    Landlords are especially helpful in making the stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. The swimming lake is especially fun and was a real highlight of the stay - rain or shine! We will definitely be staying again.
