COVID-19. We have adjusted our calendar this season so that, once restrictions are lifted, we can accommodate visitors as safely as possible. To keep both our staff and our customers safe we have decided to have a minimum of 72 hours between bookings, not only giving plenty of time for a good clean but this being the maximum time the virus can live on any surface. Obviously this will mean less bookings for us as a business but I'm sure you'll appreciate the good sense behind it. We would also ask guests to maintain social distancing between themselves and staff on site Slippery Sam's dates from around 1450 and is a Grade II listed building.

This was the 2nd time we stayed at Moonrakers. It was exactly as remembered from 5 years ago. Cosy & comfortable, not exactly modern partly due to the building being so old and listed if i remember correctly. Had everything needed for a pleasant stay....More

Very easy ample parking, with the cottage being clean and suitably equipped. Being on one level it was very suitable for my disabled mother. Easy links to major motorways.

About the neighbourhood
Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty some 4 miles outside of the cathedral city of Canterbury on the old Roman road to Hythe. Coast is reachable in three directions, from Whitstable with its oysters around through the resorts of Thanet like Ramsgate, Margate and Dickensian Broadstairs, the nature reserve of Sandwich, historic Walmer, Deal and Dover, the more sedate Hythe and on to the wilds of the Romney Marshes.
