  • "Had the loveliest break away, from home to home."

    The hosts were so helpful whenever we had any questions! Everything else was perfect! 15 minute walk to the station which was only 5 mins into Canterbury centre. Would recommend

  • "We absolutely loved the Snug."

    It was perfect for our mini break. It ticked all the boxes and the hosts were so attentive and also set up the Hot Tub before our arrival. The Snug was everything we needed; relaxing, cosy and a mini home away from home. The grounds are also outstanding and lovely to wander around. We will definately be back and reccomend this to our friends and family.

  • "A lovely place to stay with all the home from home things you’d need, very clean, well presented and all the mod cons, not a negative thing to say."

    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "Beautiful surroundings, very peaceful."

    The hot tub didn’t get hot at all despite using all of the paper & logs and stuff. There were quite a lot of bugs in the property which is to be expected because of the surroundings but I have a very big phobia of spiders and I was petrified. Quite a lot of spider webs on the ceilings and walls. The decor was lovely, very comfy bed although it was on the small side as my partner is 6ft. I would say that sun loungers are a must especially when the weather was as good as it was for us when we stayed. All in all we had a great time but I do think £400 is a lot of money for what it actually is.

    We are sorry your stay was not quite what you imagined it would be and are disappointed you didn't come to us for any help whilst you were staying. We would have been more than happy to have helped. Unfortunately the odd spider is part of country life. However, we hoover all the ceilings and walls and check for them before guests arrive, as I am a total clean freak so take a lot of pride in ensuring the Snug is to a standard that I would stay in myself which is reflected in our reviews so far. The hot tub is like a log burner so takes a little perseverance to get it really hot. After reading your message in the visitors book we tested it out and it reached 42 degrees in an hour so is doable. We would have been more than happy to have helped you light it properly if you had asked as we are only a text away. The bed is a standard double as per Sykes listing and the size of the Snug is similar to a suite in a hotel but with the added bonus of being in 1.5acres of countryside garden with a stream and a hot tub. We have found that most guests have brought their own sun loungers but it will be something we will consider in the future. Property Owner

  • "Gorgeous property, in lovely surroundings."

    River at the bottom with a seat, very peaceful and also very private. The Snug had everything we needed and the owners are only a txt away if you require anything. There are a couple of pubs within a 20 minute walk and lots of walks on the doorstep. The train station is also just a 10 minute walk away which can take you to Canterbury. Hot tub was lovely to come back to. I would 100% recommend this property.

  • "Such a beautiful place to stay, lovely scenery!"

    The snug is fully kitted out to a really high standard and when we arrived it was immaculately clean. Hosts were very friendly and super helpful. The complimentary cookies were a really sweet touch, and the information book was very helpful for cab companies and things to do in the area. A perfect weekend away and we will definitely be coming back.

  • "Lovely little bolt hole, compact but with everything you need."

    Top spec equipment but it might be a good idea to have instructions on how to use things more readily to hand (had to get owner to instruct me on hob, and then had to google microwave manual). Lovely owners, very helpful, but beware leaving the doors open when evening comes, it becomes bug heaven indoors, I should have anticipated that though. Small (constructive-I hope) criticism, those chairs are not very comfy for tv watching, and the angle is all wrong to watch from the bed (unless that was something else I couldn't work out). Nice to be close to a stream, just sitting by water and trees is very good for the soul.
