“Unique heritage cottage in friendly historic village.”
Reviewed 18 April 2014 for a stay in May 2012

Our stay at The Smithy started with a warm welcome and ended with us not ever wanting to leave! The perfect English village stay, The Smithy is comfortably furnished and spotlessly clean. Centrally located in Chilham square, the easy pace of village life is all around you, not to mention the wonderful White Horse Hotel opposite and friendly neighbours.
It is a great location to explore all that Kent has to offer. Canturbury, Sissinghurst and the seaside at Whitstable are easily reached from Chilham.

When we go on holiday we expect a little home from home and this wasn't it. Yes it's a great location but it seemed to lack comfort. The bed is only a double (I think most people's beds are now king size) not saying that the mattress was uncomfortable just small. The sofa is also not the most comfortable as it doubles as a sofa bed, there is also a wicker type 2 seater that would be better in a conservatory than a Tudor cottage. The weather was not very seasonal and rather cold when we asked for the heating to go on we were told that it would be at a cost of £5 a day. Which I thought was a bit much as we were paying a premium for high season
