“A stunning cottage with amazing views of the White Cliffs...”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This cottage is simply beautiful. The hosts have thought of everything. The welcome pack is a lovely touch and the folder of information has been well thought out.
The decor in the cottage is really tasteful and the maximum use has been made of the space. Everything is high quality, from the really comfortable beds & linen, right down to the toiletries.
This is a restful place, with breath taking views of the White Cliffs.
It is an excellent spot for sketching and painting too.
Our young daughter loved running round the garden, which has a secret garden type gate leading to the beach/cliffs and a coastal walk.
I would highly recommend this cottage and will hopefully be revisiting in the future!

“Simply wonderful!”

Where to start? well, to kick off...IF you´re wondering whether to book...just do it, cos you´ll not be disappointed here. the charming and helpful hosts have really thought of everything. beautiful bienvenue has the most wonderful location with fabulous views over st margaret´s bay, the english channel and white cliffs. the property is quite luxurious, certainly very smart and very well equipped, clean as a whistle, stylishly and comfortably furnished....with lovely bedding and towels. everything speaks of quality. to the rear there´s a great patio and garden. a gate (lockable) leads onto the coastal path above those famous cliffs. excellent walks in either direction. bienvenue is perfect for a romantic break. the upper bedroom has a superbly comfortable large double bed (VIEWS!!!) and a slipper bath (i repeat...VIEWS!!) where you can wallow with a champagne (or two) in hand. i did. sadly we were only here for a few days but there´s enough to do in and around st margaret´s (great walking country) to warrant a much longer stay. 2 -3 weeks would be perfect. canterbury, whitstable, sandwich, broadstairs, sissinghurst, bateman´s, south foreland +cliffs......i could go on and on. just take a look at the map or national trust brochures. the village and bay of st margaret´s are lovely. plenty of choice in places to dine. so, many thanks to our hosts. we had a wonderful time. i´m only sorry that we´d not found bienvenue and st margaret´s earlier...just look what we´ve been missing! we´ll be back.

“Stunning”
Reviewed 11 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We couldn't have asked for a more comfortable place to stay while we waited for good weather conditions so my husband could swim across the English Channel.
The view was amazing and the cottage has direct access to the paths along the White Cliffs where you can walk or run for miles.
The cottage is beautifully decorated with modern fittings and appliances and I loved the little Molton Brown shower gels.
On our arrival there was fresh bread and milk waiting for us. Other than the fridge being a little small everything was just perfect.
