Easy to book with helpful owner. Cottage is charming with most things required for a great holiday. Everything was clean and comfortable with everything expected of a 160 year old cottage. It was good to have the welcome pack with all essentials for refreshment and breakfast. Cottage is within easy walking distance of several good Pubs and restaurants.
Tenterden is a pleasant town with interesting shops and facilities. There are many interesting towns and things to do within a reasonable driving distance.
One slight problem with cottage is that as it is so close to the town that it can be a problem to get a parking space outside during the day but no problem after 5pm.

We had a great week in Tenterden, helped by marvellous weather. The cottage was ideally situated a short walk from shops, take aways, restaurants etc. It was warm and cosy and gave us a lovely base to explore the area.
