We booked Plantagenet cottage for our wedding weekend, with our family traveling to stay for the weekend. It was absolutely perfect for what we wanted, with lots of space, and wonderful amenities. There was also a lovely welcome basket, which was very sweet and appreciated, with fresh milk etc in the fridge, and freshly made apple juice from apples in the garden!
The bedrooms were all lovely, each with comfortable beds, high quality bedding, towels and also extra towels for the pool. The garden and pool are wonderful, lots of nooks and cosy corners with a table for Al fresco drinks, relaxing or eating, along with a BBQ. The pool has lots of toys, and great that it is heated!
The house location is in a nice quiet village, with a great pub just across the green for food and a light beverage. Very pretty. We stayed in the summer, but imagine the house is wonderful with the large wood fireplace in full swing and cosy in the winter.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Plantagenet cottage, which made our weekend just perfect. We would definitely recommend a stay, and look forward to our return!
We stayed for 6 nights in this glorious and unique cottage. It is very conveniently located but very quiet with open fields at the back and side of the vast and beautifully wooded garden. The cottage is well equipped and comfortable. Good service and communication from the owner.
The location is very well located in a quiet and nice area. The cottage does have all what you need to enjoy a wonderful stay including a pool to refresh
We travelled as a family of three from Australia and found Plantagenet Cottage to be a wonderful place to experience a classic English setting. Located in the tiny village of Boughton Aluph, which was complete with a pub and village green, we were within walking distance of a variety of walks on the North Downs Way and the nearby Eastwell Manor (which is a hotel with spa). The walks were not difficult and covered some wonderful countryside.
The cottage itself is equipped in its entirety - we were unable to find something we needed that wasn't supplied. The pool is wonderful for a family (but a bit cold for us Australians!). Block size was great and undisturbed at the back. We loved being able to stay in a cottage with so much history, dating back many hundreds of years. Beds were excellent, only one bathroom but very modern fittings, good to have the washer/dryer and the garden got plenty of sunlight.
We did have some trouble finding the entrance but once you know what you are looking for this is no problem!
Such a lovely place and setting, would definitely recommend a stay here!
We just had the best stay this cottage!!!! I booked a short 3 night break with my husband, 2 teenage daughters and 2 small dogs. Everyone was amazed at how lovely this place was. everything was perfect and just as described. The garden was very large and secure for our dogs to play in In unsupervised. The pool was lovely, clean and deep enough to swim, there were lots of toys and floats to use in the summer house. Every little detail had been thought about and there was nothing that we could have possibly needed except our clothes and ourselves.
The location was great, lots of local walks, pubs and shops close by. But sitting in the garden you felt a million miles away from everything.
The owners are so friendly and accommodating, and just a phone call away should you need anything. We can't wait to stay again!!!!
