"Good communication with Debby the owner and met her on first day."
She had kindly left us a welcome pack with wine on the side and milk in the fridge which I thought was a lovely touch. The property itself is spacious and comfortable and some lovely features. You have to remember how low the beams are at times but it was a lovely place. The location was quiet and just off the a299 so easy access to the coast and Canterbury. I would however recommend some new pots and pans for self catering but this was only a minor thing. Also the main bedroom didn't have hanging space but neither of these points impacted on our lovely stay so thankyou.
I am happy that you enjoyed your stay at Brew Cottage. I take your observations on board. Many thanks Debbie Property Owner
"Brew Cottage is lovely, when we arrived it was warm and cosy and felt like home away from home."
Unfortunately two of us were 6ft tall and had a few bumps on the low beams but soon remembered to duck! Nice welcome pack - thank you. There was everything you could need in the kitchen. Lots of games, DVD's and books to keep you entertained. Loads of good quality towels in the bathrooms and towels together with a large throw for the dogs. Both of the dogs settled really quickly and the enclosed garden was bigger than I had imagined. Next to the cottage is a paddock we could walk in and an orchard further down where there is a footpath so definitely a dog friendly environment. The bedrooms were comfortable and nicely decorated. The heating was really effective and generously left on for 17 hours a day. Although Brew Cottage is in the middle of nowhere you were only a few miles away sea. Being there during storm Ciaran meant we didn't ventre far for a couple of days but we were happy relaxing in Brew Cottage. Wouldn't hesitate to book again with the owners next door happy to provide assistance if needed. I'm only sorry we didn't meet Willow perhaps next time x Thank you.
Thank you so much for your very kind comments. We are very pleased that you had a good stay, despite the horrendous weather. We look forward to welcoming you back. Debbie Property Owner
"A lovely cottage with a very kind and courteous owner offering help at any time if needed."
I would definitely go back for another holiday and recommend it to others.
Thank you so much for your kind words. We hope to see you again soon. Debbie Property Owner
"This is a beautiful cottage set in the heart of the countryside but, by car, conveniently close to the coastline."
It has all the charm and appeal of an old home but also modern day conveniences. We found it very comfortable and spacious for a family of three – and also dog friendly. The kitchen is well equipped and has plenty of room and, as promised, the garden is an afternoon suntrap. Also, as advertised by your friendly hosts, there is the chance of a visit from their energetic young spaniel Willow, which our own playful puppy was delighted about! In terms of places to visit, Whitstable and Margate are very different seaside towns but both very enjoyable in their own ways and are easily reached. That said, we did not venture out too much in the evenings, enjoying the surroundings of the cosy cottage instead.
Thank you for your kind words. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Willow loved playing with Jessie. Debbie Property Owner
"Very comfortable clean and everything you need"
"We had a lovely stay at Brew Cottage."
It was very well equipped and had a real home from home feel. Debbie was lovely, as was Willow. It was a quiet, peaceful location, with amazing walks on the doorstep. A few minutes in the car and we could get on the road to places of interest like Canterbury, Whitstable, Herne Bay etc. We enjoyed a few evenings at the Gate Inn which was a few minutes walk. There were some lovely little extras left by Debbie when we arrived and all the basics were in the cottage too. Everything was there to make our holiday as comfortable as could be.
Had trouble working out the oven! Hot water not working one day,but dealt with immediately.
We hope that you enjoyed your stay. Glad you were able to work out how to use the oven:) Debbie Property Owner
"Beautiful cottage in a beautiful rural location, the owners were very very nice ..."
Beautiful cottage in a beautiful rural location, the owners were very very nice the only drawback was it only has one shower and as we went with another couple we feel the cottage unsuitable for two couples
"Beautiful, very dog-friendly country cottage in an idyllic situation, Brew Cottage was superbly furnished and equipped to an exceptionally high standard."
A very helpful and charming owner left us a welcome package of wine, bread, eggs, butter and milk.
"Absolutely brilliant comfy cottage."
We had such a lovely few days with everything thought out and so clean. Generous welcome goodies were very well received, thank you. Fantastic location for those that enjoy nice walks and convenient for nearby Reculver and Herne Bay.
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you gain. Debbie Property Owner

Thank you for your kind comments. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner
"Lovely cottage adjacent to the owners property, quaint old fashioned interior was comfy and well equipped."
Well catered for dog owners with an small enclosed garden which wrapped around the property. Central location to visit lots of different places and nice walks too.
We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Debbie Property Owner

Thank you again for your kind comments. We look forward to seeing you next year. Debbie Property Owner
Very helpful and friendly owners. We enjoyed all the local Kent towns and there was excellent walking and running from the door. The run along the ditches in the marshes was off road and scenic. Thank you.
We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and it was lovely meeting you and your family. Debbie Property Owner
"We found the cottage had everything we needed, couple of the door knobs were a little loose."
One thing no wardrobe or handing facilities in one of the bedrooms rooms, only hooks on the back of the door. Lovely quiet setting, welcome back was a nice touch to find.
Thank you for your comments. We have now addressed the issue of the loose door handles and are looking into a solution to the lack of wardrobe space in the smaller bedroom. We trust that you enjoyed your stay Debbie Property Owner
Very quiet location. Clean and comfy. Mattress lovely but pillows a bit hard. Hot water for bath was not consistent and ran cold but then heated up again. There was a separate shower room so that was ok Well equipped kitchen. Lovely stay. Thank you Nice walk to local pub. Plenty of nice places to visit not too far away.
Thank you for your comments. I will address both of the issues you have raised and will have them rectified as soon as possible. I trust that overall you enjoyed your time in the cottage and hopefully we may see you again. Debbie Property Owner
"Brew Cottage is delightful and exactly as explained in the listing."
It is in a very quiet hamlet, but easy walking distance to the local village, where there is a lovely pub (The Gate). The cottage was ideal for our family (two adults and two Labradors). The cottage has direct access on to a Public Footpath and there are many paths from the location. The setting is also gated so your vehicle is very safe. There was a lovely welcome gift on arrival and the owners could not have done more to make us feel welcome (even laying on blankets for the dogs). We found the wider area as a whole (the towns and roads) quite busy but Reculver Beach is a must for dogs and a swim. We will be back!
Thank you so much for your kind words. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again. Property Owner
"What a delightful cottage with oodles of character!"
!!By . The surroundings were so peaceful and if you want somewhere to relax and unwind, this is the place for you. The owners were so thoughtful in catering to the needs of holidaymakers and went above and beyond to leave things that you might possibly need. We had milk,eggs, butter, bread and a bottle of wine waiting for us on our arrival and little touches,such as doggy towels to use for our wet pooches. We could stay in the cottage and walk the dogs through fields and woods right outside the door or we could go to the nearest beach 2 miles away. The cottage was ideal as a base to visit Canterbury, Ramsgate, Herne Bay and Broadstairs which were on my 'must do 'list. Although the cottage had everything for cooking a meal, we always eat out on holiday. We found the ' king Ethelbert' pub at nearby Reculver had a good selection of meals at reasonable prices and their Sunday roast was delicious. We were very impressed with Sykes as a holiday company and always find their description of a cottage to be accurate. Booking a holiday is always straightforward and easy to do online. Will definitely be using them again. By the way, the owners dog 'Wliiow' is an absolute darling and doesn't mind strange people or dogs, she came to say 'hello' to us once then left us to our own devices.
Thank you for your kind comments. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner
"Great location for exploring the area."
Cottage well equipped. Nice local pub.
"This was our second stay at Brew Cottage and once again we were made to feel very welcome by the owners."
The house was extremely clean both times. We would not hesitate in recommending this property to anyone.
Thank you so much for your kind comments. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Property Owner
"Lovely cottage, in a great location perfect for us and our dogs ."
Beautiful setting with loads of dog walking options right on your doorstep . Good local pub in walking distance with good food friendly locals and staff. We would book this again should we re visit the area. Brew cottage was warm and welcoming with helpfull owners.
It was nice to meet you and we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to seeing you again in the future. Property Owner

"Lovely cottage in ideal place lovely walks around the cottage."
The dogs loved the garden.
"Very nice clean comfortable cottage secure garden for the dog"
"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.
"Felt at home the minute we walked into the cottage we loved the place so much we booked again for next year."
"Great rural location but close enough to anything you need, including a pub down the road!"
Secure garden for kids and dogs. Private and undisturbed.
"Well placed for visiting the area."
Plenty of walks. Perfect place for a restful break.
"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!
"The peace and quiet plus able to visit our family in Herne bay and Canterbury."
The owner's went out of there way to make sure we had everything to make our stay a pleasure.
"The cottage was absolutely stunning and the owner was extremely accommodating and friendly."
"No, everything was absolutely bang on!"
! The owners Debbie and Ken lovely helpful people. Beautiful quirky peaceful place to stay, top marks!!
"Brew Cottage is delightful!"
Very well presented and we'll equipped. The enclosed garden is ideal for any canine visitors and the hosts are extremely welcoming too. The area is in close proximity to Whitstable, Broadstairs, and other coastal towns of note. Will definitely return and would recommend Brew Cottage to anyone.
"Lovely cottage, well set up with everything you would need."
Excellent welcome pack. Debbie and Ken, the owners are such nice people and were so helpful. We are in strange times and felt that Brew Cottage had been well prepared for us.
"Clean comfortable cottage in a lovely location."
Great for anyone who enjoys walking.
"Comfortable, welcoming cottage in a great location for exploring the area."
"We were Very surprised with the welcome pack and the space of the cottage,the weather was great and my wife got to catch up with her family."
The owners were very helpful and friendly she went pout of her way to sort out any problems we had.we have booked a week next year in june.10 out of 10
"The holiday cottage had a lovely homely atmosphere, the smallest detail was thought of."
Even the needs of pets were considered. A nice pre-Christmas stay, would definately do again.
"WELL EQUIPT AND FURNISHED COTTAGE IN A DELIGHTFUL SETTING."
FRIENDLY HOSTS MET OUR EVERY NEED. THOROUGHLY RECOMMEND AS THE PLACE TO STAY
"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.
"Owner very helpful, cottage basic but suited our needs."
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.
"Being just a bit picky, a tea-cosy for the tea pot; and a dishwasher would have made it home from home!"
"Fantastic cottage, a real gem."
Great hospitality. A relaxing stay in the countryside. Our dog was in heaven. Will be going back.
"Great place to relax with the dog , ample outside space with access to footpath via rear gate leading to Orchards Taste of simple country living with a home from home feel , highly recommend self catering it’s a Gem !"
"Very hospitable welcome by landlord who lives next door."
An ideal cottage as a retreat in a quiet rural part of the country.
"The cottage is fantastic,the owners are so nice,you have to go there to realise just how good it really is."
So near to seaside towns,plenty to do for all generations.in all a perfect place to holiday and have a break.thank you.

Very clean and comfortable with all the conveniences. Lovely owners who were there if you needed them and provided a nice welcome basket. Very Very Dog Friendly and our two loved it. Would definately go back if we could get a booking as it seems to be popular which is no surprise. Sykes were extremely helpful when I contacted them requesting additional information on the Cottage.I would certainly recommend them and use them again
"THE COTTAGE WAS VERY WELL EQUIPPED AND VERY COMFORTABLE ALTHOUGH BEWARE IF ANY OF YOUR PARTY IS EXCEPTIONALLY TALL ( AS OURS WAS!"
). SOME OF THE BEAMS ARE VERY LOW ! HOWEVER THAT WAS THE ONLY DRAWBACK FOR ANY OF US. THE COTTAGE WAS VERY COSY THOUGH AND THE LOG FIRE WONDERFUL. KITCHEN EQUIPMENT WAS VERY GOOD WITH EVERTHING WE NEEDED. LOVELY SETTING WITH SURROUNDING COTTAGES AND A GOOD CENTRAL LOCATION FOR ALL THE PLACES WE VISITED. ALL FOUR OF US LOVED IT AND WOULD DEFINATELY RECOMMEND IT TO OTHERS.

"Beautiful warm cozy cottage in nice grounds."
Clean and comfortable and safe for the dogs to run around outside. Great walking distance to nearest pub which serves lovely food. We were looking for somewhere to spend a few lazy days, just walking and going to the beach with the dogs and this cottage provided just that with its log fire and location. Quiet and private too, I would happily spend a few more days there!!
"Lovely cottage and the owners made us feel that nothing was too much trouble."
It is a bit farther out of the centre of Canterbury but this suits us perfectly as it is quiet and within easy dog walking range. This was our second visit and o would recommend it.
"We left it late to book and found that most property's had already been booked ."
But after hours ( and I mean hours )we found brew cottage and fell on our feet it was perfect just what we needed . And an added bonus we had perfect weather felt more like France than Kent . The owners was really cool helped us out when we needed help . The local pub was a gem too nice people nice food good quiz . Would We go again yes we would .
"An absolutely stunning cottage."
We had a wonderful few days with the family and dog. The owners were incredibly helpful, and we couldn't have asked for anything more. There was so much to do nearby, including a dog friendly pub and lots of beaches. We did not want to leave. I will definately book again.
We may consider re-booking in years to come but we prefer to visit new places.
