"Clean, Well Provisioned & Welcoming Accommodation"
My family (2 adults & 3 teenagers) stayed in a 2 bedroom cottage over the Christmas period. Needing somewhere almost midway between family in Essex & Kent, this was an ideal location. The cottage was clean and had everything necessary for a full week. The provision of swimming towels as well as everyday towels was great, as was access to the washing machine and dryer. The kitchen was well stocked and even had a travel adaptor for my European mixer - I made a pavlova for 10 in the oven that turned out just as at home, so no skimping on size there. Would certainly recommend for people who need a base in Kent. Debbie most helpful & came to say hello & make sure everything was OK as we had arrived late in the evening, and her directions were clear and accurate. Cottage is at the end of a lane, part of which is unmade but the condition of the road is perfectly fine for all cars.

we apologise for the holes in the road, this was due to the huge amount of rain we have had this year. The road was repaired on Sunday and I hope if you return you will not see it in that sorry state again!
The bathrooms do have showers over the baths but unfortunately there is not the room for a seperate shower. We do however have two walk in showers in the pool room (which is very warm) that many of our less abled visitors have used.

"The best place to enjoy your holidays with children"
Everything was easy from the beginning.We are from Spain and booked in the internet .The great advantage is having the owners so near, they are very kind and willing to help you. The property is very big and safe at the same time. Children have a lot of things to do and adults can enjoy peaceful moments.The location is perfect to explore county Kent and ,of course, London. The amenities are great to relax and have fun. What I liked best was that I felt at home despite being abroad. Maybe what I liked least was to drive even to buy some bread but that is how things are if you live in the country.The houses are very cosy and you find everything you can need.

"Just what we needed!"
My daughter was planning on getting married at Cooling Castle Barn in Rochester and as we live in Southampton I needed to find a cottage locally so that she would have somewhere to stay the night before the wedding and to get ready. I found Stable Cottages through a web search and contacted Debbie one of the owners by phone over a year before the dates I required. From the outset she was extremely helpful when I explained why I needed the cottage and assured me that it would not be a problem for photographers,hairdressing and make up ladies as well as bridesmaids and bridal cars.to turn up at the property. She also gave me information about local kennels for our dogs for the duration of the wedding weekend and agreed that after the wedding we could keep out dogs at the property. We kept in contact over the months of waiting and she always responded promptly to any questions that I had The week before arrival I was told which cottage we would be staying in and the code for the entry gates therefore allowing us to proceed straight to out cottage on arrival .The property was immaculate the best that I have every rented. My daughter was able to spend the night with all her family and bridesmaids in a relaxing and homely setting. During our stay both Debbie and Jason were there to provide any help needed.
The setting was outstanding, perfect for anyone wanting to visit London but not wanting to stay in the city
On our arrival home we discovered that my husband had left his glasses behind I contact Debbie and they were back with us by lunchtime the next day! You really can't ask for more than that..
All in all it was 'Just what we needed' and I would recommend this it to anyone, you will be sure of a warm and friendly welcome
