Excellent & well equipped holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Garlands Retreat is a beautiful holiday home in a lovely location. Very clean and well equipped to a high standard, the owners obviously care very much about providing everything needed to make their guests' stay enjoyable and relaxing. The bottle of wine and pot of home made jam provided on arrival was a lovely thought, delicious, and very much appreciated. The large, well kept and securely fenced garden enabled us to let our greyhound have a run around in total safety, not something we have found with other holiday lets. The location is ideal for exploring the Kent coast with Whitstable, Faversham, Dover, Folkestone, Sandwich & Deal within easy reach. After a day out exploring the antique shops, towns & local markets, it was a pleasure to return to Garlands, relax on the patio with a glass of wine and watch the sun setting over the fields.

Lovely house, wel equipped with great garden!

  • 5 of 5

We do visit Kent at least once a year so we've stayed at many rental accomodations, this house is by far the best!

Lovely garden, all you hear and see are the birds. The house is big, 2 nice bedrooms with great beds and both livingroom and kitchen are fully equipped. I had brought some things from home: not necessary: it was all there!

Although the house is attached to the owners house, you have all the privacy you want. The decor inside made us feel comfortable and at home. We will book this house for sure the next time we come over to the UK.

Special interest holidays:

For those equestrian fans, there is a riding school within easy walking distance and a little further down the road, guests can enjoy the facilities of the nearby caravan park with its clubhouse entertainment and indoor swimming pool (seasonal, entry charges apply).

Many footpaths cross the fields in the area and a twenty minute walk will take you to the nearest country pub in the village of Ripple, with its fine ales and excellent pub food. Alternatively, if you are feeling more energetic, you can walk across the fields to the Hare and Hounds a popular eating-house at Northbourne.

If you are interested in history, there are several castles to choose from, Dover being the largest, others at Deal and Walmer.

The Cathedral City of Canterbury is less than twenty miles away with a huge array of shops, pubs and restaurants, and of course the historic Cathedral itself. Dover Eastern docks are just fifteen minutes drive away, perfect for day trips to France.

Coast/Beach:

The nearby St Margaret’s Bay is a great place to eat with a choice of pubs and restaurants. The view is spectacular as the road winds down to the pebble beach. Alternatively, a ten minute drive will take you to the quaint seaside town of Deal which has everything you could want from an English seaside holiday including shops, restaurants, cafés, a pier with good fishing, golf course, leisure center and an outdoor paddling pool for the kids situated next to the pebble beach.

Travel:

Convenient for Dover Docks, 15 minute drive.

Car essential.
