The owners were lovely people, the garden was big. The Butchers Arms across from the church is highly recommended. Real ale only served. The location is great for touring from.

Mr Doggett, Bury, May 2013

The beautiful cottage and garden gave us a lovely living space. It was conveniently situated for using the excellent local bus services into Canterbury and also to the coast. The owners made us very welcome. Would certainly recommend The Old Dairy to others.

Mrs Morford, Manchester, May 2013

A change of scenery and an opportunity to visit places we had never before been. The Old Dairy was comfortable and well furnished and equipped. The owners were most friendly and helpful.

Mr Jackson, Fordingbridge, September 2012

Very warm welcome, marvellous cottage and lovely garden area. Great area to explore, lots of literature available including OS map! and history of the local area. Milk and cakes in fridge very enjoyable after a long journey! Owners utterly charming plus Keltic, the softest dog on planet Earth. We shall certainly be back!
