Kate's property is in a lovely location and her farm is like a picture book. We woke each morning to birdsong. The accomodation is clean, well laid out and very cosy. We especially appreciated the home made cake on arrival.

Somewhere quiet, tucked away along country roads to relax for a couple of days. Kate was absolutely brilliant; the caravan spotlessly clean and well equipped; even the weather was kind.

About the neighbourhood
Situated in a rural location with lovely walks and scenery, great for relaxing. There are local attractions nearby suitable for families and couples and nice pubs for eating. Canterbury is only 20 minutes away and it is easy to have a day trip to London or even France. The orchard is quiet and peaceful and makes a great base to explore Kent from.
