A lovely cottage in a perfect location.
I have stayed in Sandwich several times & love it.
First time I’ve stayed at 12 Vicarage Lane & I’m sure I’ll stay again.
Exactly how the pictures show it.
Nice decor. Everything you need here for a break in a lovely part of Kent.
I arrived early so parked my car in nearby car park and went into the Kings Arms garden. I hadn’t been there too long when Claire (cottage owner) messaged me to say the cottage was ready, which was very convenient as I could unpack & enjoy a nice Gin & Tonic back in the pub’s garden.
Very pleased with the cottage & would recommend to small families or couples.
Situated a few minutes walk to many shops bars & restaurants.
It was the Folk & Ale Festival while we were there so the area was very busy, but the cottage was in a lovely quiet location.
No problems with parking in the car park either. Only £4 for 24 hours.
Perfect terraced home for few nights away
We really enjoyed staying here with our 2 kids (age 4 & 5). Was cosy and well equipped. Very close to centre of old Sandwich. We parked easily in car park couple of mins walk away. Easy enough to stop outside the property to unload, drop me off with the kids. WiFi worked well. Perfect base for exploring the local area.
Beautifully clean and comfortable
This is our second time in this cottage and we would highly recommend it. There is a well equipped kitchen, nice lounge and dining room, great bathroom with both bath and a very good shower and the beds are really comfortable. Everywhere is spotlessly clean and the bedding immaculate. It is very quiet at night and you get a really good night's sleep. If I was in the area again I would definitely try and book this cottage.
We'll be back!
A wonderful cottage in a charming town! Located in the heart of Sandwich just a stones throw from lots of great pubs and delightful eateries, we couldn't have asked for more. The cottage was beautifully decorated with great attention to detail and really cosy. Great walks on the doorstep and plenty to keep us busy. We will be back soon and hope to stay for longer next time. Thanks to Claire for a wonderful weekend, all the best!
Very convenient for our purposes i.e. nearness to my son's family in Ash
The cottage was excellently appointed and had everything we could have wished for. Proximity to rail transport and supemarket was very helpful.
Thank you Claire. We look forward to staying again.
Beautiful little cottage with a lot of personal touches
We stayed in this beautiful little cottage ( although bigger than expected) over the new year. It was clean, well equipped and had lots of items out for us to use that I had taken and thankfully didn't need to unpack. I would highly recommend staying here the area is stunning and it's a little home from home xx
