Description from owner
Groves Cottage is an individual weather boarded single storey cottage in a quiet lane in the heart of the conservation area of the village of St Margaret's-at-Cliffe. The cottage affords opportunities for walking and cycling, exploring the beautiful historic Kent coastline.
Groves Cottage is set in the middle of its garden with adjacent parking for up to two cars. St Margaret's-at-Cliffe boasts two hostelries, which serve food. The village also has a General Store and Post Office. Traditional tea shops are a short walk away, as is the beach at the nearby St Margaret's Bay, where there is a further Pub and Snack kiosk. The Cottage is ideally located for visits to the Cathedral city of Canterbury for shopping and sight-seeing and the history of Dover and its castle and also to the many other wonderful Kent attractions.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your comments. We aim to provide a realistic interior both in word description and in the photo gallery and there are included pictures of the lounge and television/cd player. We do not advertise a dish washer or wifi. We are true to the definition of a Cottage. We aim to make everyone comfortable in the best way we can but recognise that not everyone is a perfect match for a place which we love. Only a couple of guests have commented on car movements and , on making enquiries, it transpired that there was a wedding reception the first weekend of the stay. We always welcome returning guests if you decide to stay again in the future as you indicated you might.
