We are just back from a fantastic 5 night break at oak cottage. We sent several emails to Nigel prior to our stay which he responded to quickly with all the information we needed. He kindly allowed us to check in early as they had no guests the day before which helped us out with our journey times, working around our small children's nap times.
The cottage itself was perfect. Our 4 year old daughter enjoyed walking around the garden searching for fairies and insisted on a swim in the lake, which daddy agreed to. There was a small slide and swing which our toddler played on and the hot tub for me in the evening.
Everything we wanted to see was 20-50mins drive away...leeds castle, canterbury, several beaches..
A top tip would sbe to visit Leeds castle early on in your stay. We bought our tickets on our first afternoon which meant we visited twice more when we had a few hours to spare and really got our monies worth from our ticket.
I think we will definitely be back next year!
Beautiful gardens surround the cottage that is within steps of a small lake in which you may swim. It is very private as the property is gated and you feel like you are a million miles from any hustle and bustle one would find in town. There's lots to do with swimming, hiking and table tennis. Relax in the large living room equipped with tv and DVD along with a few good novels and internet. Lots of room for kiddies to run!
Well within driving distance of a variety of small villages and a great place to begin your hunt for oast houses. Canterbury Cathedral, Leeds Castle and many more sights are within an hour from the cottage.
WE thoroughly enjoyed our time in Challock.
The cottage was cosy and warm with good amenities. Very clean and quaint. However we did find the shower was a problem, it kept going cold and the water only trickled out, other than that everything was excellent.
Very cosy cottage with amazing views. We loved the rural setting and very convenient location for the variuos trips we undertook.
We recently stayed in Oak Cottage for a long weekend. The owners are very welcoming and provided comprehensive pre visit directions, help and guidance which made life much easier. The cottage is spacious and comfortable with plenty of room. The facilities were absolutely fine and we were able to cook. The location is ideal set in the Kent countryside with lovely views. It is a good starting point for touring Kent with easy access from Rye right round the coast to Whitstable and the Isle of Sheppey.
