"Great Hospitality for a truly great cottage"
We were 10 adults and 2 children (a wedding party) staying in the cottage and had lots of other visitors as well and we never felt like there were too many of us in the cottage. the hot tub was also a really great thing to have. Just wonderful to be able to sit there with a couple of people and relax before retiring for the night. The number of bathrooms in the place was also a true advantage.
Grateful thanks to Robert for his understanding about us having so many vehicles on site too.
We would definitely recommend this cottage which is also very convenient for access to Canterbury and the surrounding beaches. It is very centrally situated.

With our Ozzie son being married in nearby Canterbury, we selected White Post Hay Loft and Stable for our extended familes stay for 1 week (6 adults & 3 children). This arrangement worked exceptionally well with Pop and Nan in the Loft whilst the ground floor was left to 3 children and 4 adults with room for many visitors. The accommodation was modern, clean, and "shmick". The kids enjoyed the farm stay and we all enjoyed the big hot tub, on a cold winters night. The local pubs and butcher shops were unique and we could not fault the local food at the nearby pub (Duck & Dog.) Our hosts, Robert and Dawn were ever so obliging. We would have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation.

A brand new spacious accommodation with fantastic facilities.Easy to live in and keep clean.
Bright, immaculate, quiet with excellent location.The hot tub available day and night and the Wii were an absolute success with the teenagers. Lovely garden
Our hosts made us feel at home and were so helpful ; I miss my daily chat with them...
Fresh fruit and vegetables were kindly given to us everyday. A wire was installed straight away to provide us with internet access.Our dog was more than welcome
They are the neighbours and hosts from heaven.

"Lovely presentation and warm and friendly hosts"
We had a lovely time at White Post Stable, Robert made us feel very welcome and suggested some good spots for us to view. The location is ideal and the local pubs offer great meals at an affordable rate. The cabin is very well presented, with plenty of space and privacy. Highly recommended.

"Fantastic, couldn't ask for more!"
We stayed for a week August 2011, the accomodation had only just been finished and was to high specification and catered for all our needs. The children loved it. The use of the hot tub in the evening was relaxing. The location is central to visit many attractions in the area. Robert & Dawn were fantastic always bringing fruit for us, and being very helpful if we needed information regarding the area. We would well recommend this accommodation and hope to be visiting again in the future. A big thank you to Robert & Dawn for making us welcome.
