  • "Beautiful old cottage in an idyllic rural location on the edge of an orchard yet convenient to explore Kent and particularly the North Kent coast."

    The cottage is a real home from home with everything you need for an enjoyable break and very dog friendly which was important to ourselves. The owners are helpful and friendly. There are lovely walks from the door and a great selection of local dog friendly pubs. We had a fantastic time away at Brew Cottage.

  • "The photographs did not do this cottage justice."

    It is much larger than it looks and full of character. A lovely quiet spot with the owners next door but never intrusive. They did all they could to ensure we had a good stay. The two enclosed garden areas were ideal for our greyhound. One of the best cottages we have stayed in. No dishwasher, but it made a change to do the dishes ourselves!

  • "This cottage is comfortable and spacious."

    It was ideal for our two labradors and large enough for them each to find their own space so they settled in straight away. The private enclosed garden that went right around the cottage with doors leading to it from the front and the back was great and a gate in the hedge leads into a field with another gate into an apple orchard which was great for a morning walk before setting off in the car. Debbie and Ken immediately responded to our every need and left a generous welcome basket including eggs, milk and bread. We loved the comfortable carpet and rugs in all the right places and having three loos and two bathrooms plus a basin in the bedroom was a luxury. We found lots to do in the surrounding area including beaches, a nature reserve, beautiful gardens in sandwich. Faversham and Ruculver, with it's Roman Fort were well worth a visit as well as the East Kent Railway stations. We found lots of dog friendly pubs serving good food and a farm shop with fresh produce to cook in the kitchen at Brew cottage which is great value for money. We are already planning a return visit for next year as there is lots more to see that we did not get to this time and the cottage was perfect for us and our doggie family who loved the resident Spaniels Jess and Willow.

    It would have been good to have a dishwasher. Outside furniture - several chairs broken and very basic and old. A shame as the weather was good and it would have been nice to sit outside in more comfort.
