What our guests really think

A lovely surprisingly modern cottage surrounded by nature   4.3/5
"What a lovely house, not the tiny cottage you would imagine but despite the low beams on ground floor, light and airy upstairs with plenty of space and storage for the three of us. The gardens are amazing as is the view of the estate, very peaceful but you must like driving on tiny lanes as they are the only way in and out! The facilities felt modern and the beds very comfortable. Mobile reception and the wifi were both awful so bring dvds and books! Also some bird feed as there are loads of feeders. The shower was small and you race the water level as it rises around your feet but it was manageable. Also the heating in one bedroom and living room never went off no matter what we tried. Makes the spare room roasting in Summer. We brought our fans so it solved that. Comms were good on booking and my emails were answered but whilst there we couldn’t get hold of the property manager so good job there was no emergency. Loads to do around the area and it was a lovely stay for us. Very restful and lots to explore. All in all a very well priced week away, I would recommend."

October stay near Faversham   4.8/5
"I knew Walnut Tree Cottage from my childhood growing up very near here so I was delighted to see we could rent it for a holiday. It's a perfect location for a quiet stay, with walks on the beautiful Belmont Estate but easy to access Faversham, Whitstable and Canterbury. We had a fabulous meal out at The Sportsman in nearby Seasalter. The cottage is very well equipped, clean and comfortable. It was rather wet the week we stayed but the central heating and log burner in the inglenook fireplace kept it cosy. The parking is easy. I loved the garden which is a good size and a Summer visit to take advantage of it would be good. Overall a great place to stay for either visiting local attractions or hunkering down for a quiet getaway. I hope to come again."

Peaceful haven in heart of country   4.7/5
"Perfect haven of peace, helping us to relax and recover from very stressful family circumstances. Tucked away in the heart of the country, watching pheasants and squirrels in the charming garden, sitting by the cosy wood stove, sleeping in such calm..... just what we needed. Our only regret was not being able to stay longer - and just missing all the daffodils in full bloom."

Third stay   4.5/5
"Third stay at this beautiful cottage and garden so private and really cosy A few fittings could be updated ie sofas and shower room. would definitely return again"

Stunning location, cottage could get better appointed   4.2/5
"The cottage is in the most beautiful setting and the garden is idyllic - truly picture perfect. I feel at this price point (which I think is fair given the uniqueness of the property) the cottage should be better appointed with some of the basics - tea, kitchen towel, tinfoil, cling film, more loo roll etc - but this is only a minor gripe. It’s a stunning retreat and we will return!"

Lovely as always   4.3/5
"Walnut Tree cottage is a lovely place to stay peaceful, cosy and the gardens are just beautiful toilet downstairs only so can be a bit tricky at night if you have mobility issues as bedroom upstairs would love it if there was a king size bed instead of a double as there is plenty of room for it lovely cottage and amenities Short on large glasses, nice wine glasses and prosecco glasses would make it perfect 4th time staying and will be back again"

Walnut Tree Cottage   4.8/5
"Walnut Tree Cottage fitted the bill for a short post operation stay. It was everything that we wished it to be."

Beautiful, traditional country cottage   4.3/5
"Beautiful cottage, really well presented. Excellent position for exploring Kent. The gardens are large but, for the majority of our stay were unusable as the grass hadn't been cut so was full of crane flies and really damp until the afternoon, which was a shame. Interior is tasteful and immaculate. The shower is a let down ...small and difficult to clean so looks a bit grubby around the doors."

Simply glorious   4.8/5
"We’ve stayed at this cottage a number of times now - testament to its delightful location. The recent refurbishment of the shower room and repainting has given the interior a lovely freshen up."
