“Beautiful and peaceful”
Reviewed 29 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We would like to thank Anne and Rob for their warm welcome to the cottage. The cottage is beautiful and set in a very pretty setting. The cottage is well equipped with everything you could need. A modern kitchen, bathroom and a very comfy bed. The cottage is located in the perfect area for access to Dover, Deal, Canterbury etc. We found the area very peaceful and quiet I have to give this cottage 10/10 as it was perfect for us. Once again thanks to Anne and Rob for making our stay perfect.

Gardners Cottage in Shatterling was everything I was looking for on our holiday to England. It is situated in a lovely garden with many extra comforts that made our stay memorable. The cottage was clean, well furnished and had many extras - lots of hangers for clothes, many extras in the kitchen, a lovely outdoor area for relaxing, good internet access, comfortable bed.

we find that internet access is important to everyone these days, so put boosters in the cottages as we are in the country and the internet used to drop out. Everyone says how comfortable the beds are… we have tried to make the cottages as user-friendly as possible!

“Great cottage for two”

Ann Jolin provided spotless modern accommodation here with great attention to detail - we wanted for nothing. We were very happy in the Gardener's Cottage - the bed was so comfortable......we slept so well!

“Perfection”

For the past 7 months I have had the greatest pleasure in staying in the Gardeners Cottage. I can highly recommend the accomodation as near perfect. The attention to detail within the property is to a very high standard, extremely well maintained, serviced and cared for. For me the whole experiance has been warm, friendly and it is with great regret that my time at the cottage came to an end.
Both Anne and Rob the owners have afforded me the utmost hospitality, friendship, care and consideration.
I simply cannot thank them enough for the highest level of professionalism they have shown me during my stay, and I would highly recommend a stay at their Cottage.
