Very Good

“"Picture Perfect"”

Reviewed 22 Feb 2012

We visited Brittons Hill Cottage in November 2011 and were taken in by its charm, character and location from the moment we arrived. It felt like a home from home with everything you could need, and more. The cottage has such a lovely feel to it and very well fitted. The garden was also stunning and the view across rolling fields was postcard perfect. The cottage was like something from the film the holiday and we loved every minute of our time there, the only downside is that we couldn’t have stayed longer as there was so much to do and see locally and even just relaxing and taking in the ambiance and romance of the perfect quaint cottage. Its location is perfect for exploring all the wonderful local towns and villages with something for everyone. It is all very close to the coast for lovely walks along miles of beautiful beaches, we went in November and the weather was perfect the sun was shining and the skies were clear blue like a summers day so we enjoyed a lovely walk along the beach and exploring all of the local towns including all of their culinary delights. We would definitely recommend the cottage to our friends and family it's the perfect getaway and we will be sure to return again soon!

“Just book this place”

Reviewed 16 Feb 2012

We went down as 2 couples and were very happy when we walked through the gate. The cottage is absolutely spectacular & has an amazinging warm feel to it. It is the sort of place you would be more than happy not to leave during your stay, although there is lots to see close by. It has everything you could possibly need and was lovely & warm with the snow falling outside. The views are amazing & you do feel very secluded while you are there. Quite simply if you want a relaxing stay in the country, in peace and tranquility, with stunning views in a lovely old cottage then look no further. You wont be dissapointed.

Owner's reply: Hi thank you so much for your review it's very kind of you. So glad you had such a great time and loved the cottage and in the snow everything looks so stunning. Glad you were nice and toasty inside and you seemed to enjoy all the local areas. Please come back and visit when you can you are always very welcome. Best wishe Pauline and Chris

“Fairy tale Cottage Experience”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2011

We really enjoyed our stay here. The cottage is located about 15 minutes off the Dover - London motorway and is only about a 30 minute drive after getting off the ferry in Dover. It's far enough out in the country to feel secluded but not so far out to feel isolated. The cottage itself is 300 years old with newer additions that expand the size and add modernity. It is cozy, but was still very comfortable for three adults and two young kids. There was a great fenced-in, well maintained yard that added to the charm. It is obvious that the owner's really enjoy sharing the place with people and they went out of their way to be informative via email about things to do, places to eat, etc. days before our arrival. If you want the fairy tale, English cottage experience that you've always pictured in your mind, this is it!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your lovely review the Cottage is now recently extended and beautifully refurbished we hope you will visit again sometime.

Great quiet place, nice view, beautylfull places nearby. The cottage itselve is very charmfull and complete. Pauline and Chris, thanks for this unique apportunity!

“the cutest cottage of South-East England.”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2011

This is a beautifull cottage in a very quiet place, the only neighbours you see are lots of sheep... It feels like you are in a fairytale to stay there. With five people it's a bit crowdy, but we didn't mind because we loved to be in and around the cottage. We went to London, Canterbury, Ramsgate, Margate, Tenderden, Rye, Eastborne, the zoo at Port Lympde and made fantastic walks using the public footpaths. It is all within reach. You must go there, you won't regret it!

Owner's reply: How kind of you to write a review about the cottage and yes we feel the same its like a cottage in a fairytale book and the sheep are just the best neighbours! so glad you had a good time and were comfortable t was a plesure to have you visit our home and hope one day you will come back. very best wishes Pauline and Chris

“Lovely Cottage very homely”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2011

We had a wonderful time at Britton's Hill Cottage, quiet, rural location, very friendly locals, the cottage has a dog friendly garden and all amenities within the cottage, a real home from home. Owners very helpful. Did not want to leave and definately will be going back.

Owner's reply: We are so glad you had a lovely time at the cottage it really is a very special place to us and to our guests who stay there. Thank you for being such lovely guests and please come back to visit us soon. with very best wishes Pauline and Chris
