  • "This was probably the best holiday let we've ever had."

    Ideal location for exploring the area in a lovely tranquil setting and with an amazing garden. The accommodation was superb with everything you could possibly want provided. Matt the owner couldn't have been more helpful throughout our stay. Would thoroughly recommend.

    Hello to you both ! Thank you for booking the lodge and leaving your lovely comments. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay - it was a pleasure having you there. Kindest wishes Matt & Debbie Property Owner

  • "Very comfortable and clean detached bungalow in a lovely rural location and extremely convenient for travelling around."

    Matt and Debbie, the owners, couldn’t be more friendly and accommodating and were always on hand if we needed anything. This is great, spacious accommodation and I highly recommend it. There is one surprising and derogatory review on the website and I would suggest it is ignored and recommend it should be removed. There are two sides to every story and from our perspective Matt is a great host in every respect.

    Great location for walks and close to a station. Good wifi and TV and we had a lot of fun with the google mini. We saw goldfinches, a woodpecker and pheasants in the garden. Decor doesn't feel very cosy.

  • "Lovely modern apartment."

    However, our stay was spoilt by the behaviour of Matt the owner despite the positive reviews about him. No-one was there to greet us although we kept him informed of our progress on the journey. His house is next door. Heating was not on on arrival so after a cold night Matt came in to see to it whilst we were out when he could also have checked on the TV which we had reported that we could not start. When we returned in the evening the TV would still not work so we texted him to please come over and help us with this. When he came by he just charged past us looking mad and was losing his temper saying it was not broken (we had not said this) and being aggressive towards us. After he said he would have to call a technician, he managed to make the TV work and showed us how to do this. We esteem the apartment should have been checked properly before we arrived, especially as we arrived a day late due to storms on the Saturday. Particularly the heating and TV should have been functioning. The icemaker also did not work. The rest of our stay was tainted by Matt's behaviour and we did not see, nor wish to see, him again.

  • "I had read other customer’s reports so I was expecting something special and we weren’t let down."

    We were very lucky and had fantastic weather. Although the lodge is fairly isolate it is in lovely countryside with great views, and a great place to make use of the patio or lawn to chill out after an excursion. The kitchen is well equipped and we cooked dinner most evenings. Matt is just next door if there are any problems, and he also advised us on a local pub/ restaurant to for a birthday dinner. It is within an easy drive of the coast which we were able to explore. Goodnestone Gardens, with an excellent cafe are closed by and well worth a visit for half a day. We also made use of the park and ride to visit Canterbury. It is and excellent, efficient service.

  • "The cottage was modern, comfortable and clean and is situated in a beautiful location in the Kent countryside."

    Plus an excellent location to visit all of the local attractions across Kent. Also I have to mention the warm welcome from Matt the owner. So helpful, friendly and informative with all the knowledge you need to have a great stay. He even gave us a couple of beers after our shopping delivery failed to deliver what we wanted. Fantastic family holiday and if we decide to holiday in Kent again we will definitely return to Willow Lodge!

  • "Having booked late, we were uncertain about what to expect."

    However, we need not have worried. The property was exceptional and included everything we needed. It was spacious, comfortable and very well-equipped. Space outside allowed our granddaughter to ride her scooter and play football. Parking for two cars was next to the Lodge, The owner welcomed us and gave a short insight to the area and facilities but did not bother us after that. The property is situated in a lovely part of Kent, fairly remote but easy to get out from. We had a day visiting Deal, the White Cliffs of Dover (NT) and Hastings to see family. Day 2 we visited the Wildlife centre then went to Herne Bay for the beach. Day 3 we walked up the road to Goodnestone Gardens which were well worth a visit. Then a trip into Canterbury in the afternoon. The farm shop up the road provided our dinner on Day 3 - as good as home-cooked! All in all, we were sorry we couldn't stay longer but it was a great holiday cottage in a superb location.

    Our host Matt was very welcoming and on hand if you have any issues (we didn't!). Lovely views of the countryside, secure parking, privacy, near to everywhere (ask Matt where to go for pizza and fish & chips in Aylesham!) = brilliant. Excellent location, we visited lots of places, highly recommend Canterbury, Broadstairs, Herne Bay, Sandwich & Deal. Go to Gibson's farm shop for breakfast and The Anchor for lunch or dinner, both in Wingham (about 3 miles away). Really fortunate with the weather, we had a great week - definitely be back to visit again.

    Everything about the accommodation has been thought through very carefully with every comfort catered for. The owner is very helpful and always accessible but not intrusive. Not only is the accommodation excellent, the situation of Willow Lodge makes places of interest very easy to visit with Adisham station very nearby making Canterbury very easy to visit by train. A very peaceful, excellent holiday accommodation. Fully recommended.

The property

Adisham 1 mile.

This excellent, detached cottage, newly built in August 2016, is set all on the ground floor and is located just outside the villages of Adisham and Aylesham, in stunning rural Kent.

Situated just three miles from the thriving village of Wingham and only a 20 minute drive from the splendid cathedral city of Canterbury and 30 minutes from many coastal towns, this lovely property is ideal for a couple, a small family or a group of four friends who are looking for a countryside retreat at any time of year.

This cottage has been carefully constructed and lovingly-furnished to create an excellent holiday home.

Spacious and stylish, Willow Lodge comes complete with a large open plan living area, with a modern, fitted kitchen even the most discerning of cooks will love - a perfect place to prepare everything from delicious breakfasts to tasty picnics, before setting off to explore Canterbury or the quaint town of Sandwich.

There are two large bedrooms, a king-size double with Jack-and-Jill access to a bathroom, and a twin with an en-suite wet room, therefore you have the best of both worlds whether you fancy a long, hot soak at the end of a busy day or a refreshing shower to wake you up in the morning.

Outside, you can relax and unwind in your private courtyard garden which offers sun throughout the day, enjoying stunning views across fields and tree lines with a good book, a great spot to watch the sun go down and recharge your batteries whilst planning exciting days ahead.

For those who want to stay close to home there are walks and cycle paths from the door, or perhaps a gentle ride on horseback is more to your taste.

Boots, wheels or saddle - no matter what your preferred medium of transport- it’s easy to fully experience Kent’s glorious countryside, known since Tudor times as The Garden of England, from this splendid holiday home.

Well-insulated for warm nights in the winter and cool days in the summer, it’s easy to take a break from your busy lifestyle at this rural retreat, at any time of year.

About the location


Wingham 3 miles; Canterbury 7 miles; Sandwich 9 miles.

Adisham is a quiet village in the heart of rural Kent on one of the routes that formed part of the Pilgrims' Way, immortalised by Geoffrey Chaucer in The Canterbury Tales. Today’s pilgrims can make the journey by train from Adisham railway station, arriving in Canterbury in less than 10 minutes! This beautiful part of Kent still offers numerous footpaths and bridleways for those who wish to explore the countryside either by foot or in the saddle. Why not pack a picnic, leave the car behind and ramble through woods and fields, enjoying the sights and sounds of Kent at its best? Wingham is only three miles away, with local shops, quaint pubs and a large selection of restaurants. The fabulous Gibsons Farm Shop is a short distance away, offering local produce complete with a café serving homemade food throughout the day. Located close by is the famous Howletts Wild Animal Park, where families of all ages can experience an exciting day out. Only six miles from Adisham is the beautiful, historic city of Canterbury. No visitor can come to this part of Kent and not spend a day exploring this exciting city, with its theatres, shops and river trips. At every turn there is a piece of history to be admired, and the regular guided tours bring the days of pilgrims and beggars back to life. Enjoy a fabulous holiday in this beautiful part of Southern England.
