  • "We loved the house and the atmosphere."

    However we were disappointed about the television and the quality of the channel reception tv was terrible. For the owner perhaps not a problem but for the guest who like to watch tv it must be perfect. At least one of the 2 bedrooms a tv would be recommedable. Please no cleaning mop for hygiene.

    Thank you for your feedback it is very much appreciated. We were concerned about your comment regarding the TV. It is a Samsung Smart TV and less than one year old. We visited you and demonstrated the remote control. If you were still uncomfortable with this we would have been more than happy to return. Since you left we ran a diagnosis to confirm that all software was up to date. The TV worked perfectly well with 76 digital terrestrial UK TV channels, 24 radio stations and 137 Samsung TV Plus channels. Cleaning products, including a mop were in the cupboard under the stairs. We believe that Vine Cottage fully and accurately reflects its description and are glad that you enjoyed the cottage and its atmosphere. Thank you for your suggestion and hope you enjoyed your stay in the area. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was very well appointed with everything we could possibly need."

    A lot of thought has obviously gone into this and we appreciated the care taken. For example there were quilts of different weight for the beds, a beautiful flower arrangement on the dining table. The garden is beautiful, sadly it was rather cold during our stay, but lovely for better days. Tenterden itself has lots of facilities. We particularly liked the Turkish restaurant on the high street. We visited Canterbury, Walmer, Sissinghurst, Dungeness and had a trip on the local heritage railway. All these within easy distance.

    Hi Christina, Thank you for such a positive feedback. As much as we really want you to enjoy your stay, we also appreciate your comments. We get a buzz knowing what we do works and is recognised. Thanks again - you're always welcome at vine Cottage. Trudy and Barry. Property Owner

    We had a very enjoyable week in Vine Cottage, it was a lovely space to return to after a day out, and we even had a couple of late afternoons just have relaxing in the garden - we were so lucky with the weather! Thank you Trudy and Barry for the helpful information provided too.

    Thank you for your lovely review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed Vine Cottage, Tenterden and surrounding area.....its a great place to explore! You are welcome back any time. Trudy & Barry. Property Owner

  • "An excellent place to stay in this area."

    Well equipped, clean and warm. Good contact with owners. Parking on road outside worked well. Easy access to good shopping in town. The house is as good as it looks, and the positive feedback is accurate.

    Thank you ever so much for your kind feedback and for your appreciation of our cottage. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay and would be delighted to welcome you back to further explore the local area. Trudy & Barry Property Owner

  • "We have stayed in many holiday cottages and Vine Cottage was one of the cleanest, stylish and well equipped, we have never had such a good selection of glasses!"

    The main bed was very comfortable and the garden has a lovely seating area that catches the afternoon sun which we were able to enjoy.The location is easily walkable to Tenterden centre and there are lots of walks out from the town. The cottage is on a fairly busy road but was reasonably quiet overnight. It was not always possible to park outside the cottage, which maybe the price you pay for a central location. The stairs are quite steep, not a problem for us, but could be if elderly or small children, and the bath/shower very slippery without a non slip mat. Luckily we take our own.

    Thank you for your positive feedback and glad you enjoyed your stay. We have addressed your comments regarding a shower mat which will be available to future guests. Barry & Trudy. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage and a nice little walk into Tenterden."

    . Great communication with owners. Lovely cotton bed linen. Extremely clean and well equipped. Lovely garden if only the weather had been slightly warmer but you would be lucky in February to be able to sit out. Would recommend to friends if they were going that way.

    Thank you so much for your lovely review and that you enjoyed our cottage in Tenterden. You are welcome back any time.. Trudy & Barry.. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was absolutely beautiful."

    Everything was so tasteful, immaculate, super comfortable and luxurious - the beds the towels the bedding, the bathroom. Like a hotel stay! The kitchen was extremely well equipped and having a washing machine and tumble drier was amazing with a young baby. The village itself is a short walk away we barely used the car - lovely shops a Waitrose and Tesco and lots of lovely pubs and cafes. A real home from home. Will return for sure.

    Thank you ever so much for the lovely feed back. We are really pleased you enjoyed your stay at Vine Cottage and appreciated what Tenterden has to offer. We look forward to seeing you again. Barry and Trudy Property Owner

  • "Altogether excellent but a couple of observations."

    (1). It would be difficult for two large people to share the smaller room (2) Although there is a lot of parking available often it is all occupied and difficult to find anywhere else. Waitrose is very handy !! Lots of interesting shops in the town.

  • "Great location, house was really clean and contained everything that we needed."

    Received a lovely welcome pack and there were dishwasher tablets etc which makes life easier. We requested an extension lead and that was kindly dropped off to us. We really enjoyed our stay and the only problem we had was that it was sometimes difficult to park near to the house, which was really only an issue when unloading and loading. We would still stay here again though as that didn't detract from our stay too much. Great location for visiting all over Kent. Thanks for a great stay!

  • "We had an amazing 2 weeks stay in Vine Cottage."

    The house was gorgeous and very tastefully decorated. Everything was spotlessly clean with a very well equipped kitchen at our disposal. The owners even left us some fresh eggs, milk and butter as well as a nice bottle of sparkling wine. We had a slight problem with a leaking kitchen sink, which the owners immediately fixed within 2h. We were also given a second set of bed sheets since we were staying longer than a week. The area itself is great, only a short walk to the high street with lots of lovely walks to the countryside. The cottage is situated on a fairly busy road, but the noise was barely noticeable. We would definitely stay again, everything was perfect and the owners made sure that we had a great stay!

  • "We had a great stay at Vine Cottage."

    The owners had thought of everything and the whole house and everything in it was super clean. There was a lovely garden with garden furniture and umbrella, we were lucky enough to use these as we had wonderful weather. The house just couldn’t be faulted and we loved Tenterden. The whole area was beautiful with many places to visit. Would thoroughly recommend!

    Vine Cottage was immaculate and had everything plus more that we needed for our short stay away, even some basic supplies and a most enjoyable bottle of local wine in the fridge left for us! We are already planning another stay next year, thank you.

  • "Vine Cottage is beautifully presented to a high standard."

    It is very comfortable with luxury beds and bedding. The garden and outdoor seating area is perfect for meals outside and relaxing in good weather. We really enjoyed our holiday. It is very easy to walk into Tenterden from the cottage where there are lots of individual shops and places to eat. We enjoyed lots of local walks and trips to the coast and beautiful gardens around the area. There is definitely plenty to do. We especially enjoyed the Nature reserve at Rye Harbor where we hired bikes. Also did kayaking at Bodiam. Visited so many beautiful places Rye, Cranbrook, Winchelsea, King Johns Nursery at Ticehurst, Hastings, Dungeness, Charleston.... The owners are very helpful and responsive and we would have no hesitation in rebooking. Kent and Sussex are really beautiful areas to explore and Vine Cottage is a relaxing and comfortable place to stay. Thank you.

  • "We had a lovely stay in Vine Cottage."

    The cottage is beautifully decorated to a high standard and very clean. The garden is also lovely, our two daughters enjoyed playing outside and we enjoyed food and drinks on the patio. The owners were really welcoming and it was easy to get hold of them for any advice. The cottage is in walking distance of the high street, with lots of places to eat in or take away. We really enjoyed the Thai takeaway, that is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday. For families with younger children there is a great park nearby and lots for them to do. We also enjoyed travelling a little further and visited Camber Sands, Rye and Dover Castle. We would recommend Vine Cottage as a great place for a family break.
