An excellent holiday let. The location was tranquil and is surrounded by beautiful countryside - very therapeutic and relaxing. The Oast house itself is a very high standard - the building finish, furniture and plumbing and the layout all pleased.

Our 55th Wedding Anniversary couldn't have been a better celebrated than in your lovely spacious house with our children and grandchildren. Very comfortable and well furnished, we loved the kitchen and the Aga and did some wonderful cooking on and in it! The countryside is magnificent and we were able to visit several pubs, castles, gardens as well as Chatham Dockyard. The children enjoyed playing hide & seek in this beautiful house and of course enjoyed visiting the sheep. We hope to return one day and we will certainly recommend to our friends.

We came to celebrate a 60th Birthday and Easter. The Oast house and farm reminded us all of our childhoods growing up on a farm in Herefordshire and there was also an Oast there. We loved staying here and enjoyed an egg hunt around the house and garden. We visited various National Trust properties and the Pooh Sticks Bridge. The surroundings are idyllic and the spring flowers and blossom beautiful. We saw bats flying from Oast Tower! We also enjoyed visiting the lambs and bulls and seeing the cute calves in the field. We talked to a duck nesting in corner outside the kitchen door by the house!.
