“A Revolution”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This was by far the best; most beautifully put together cottage we have ever stayed in; quite simply perfect! Only one down side...we should have booked 2 weeks instead of 1!!!!!

Fantastic.

“A homey, historic haven in a wonderful village”
Reviewed 4 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We were transported back to the 17/18c in Thomas Paine's cottage and the charming village of Sandwich. Even prettier and roomier than photos indicate. Robin has lovingly restored this historic home and appointed it with period furniture and modern comforts. He even had a warm fire burning for us on arrival. The garden in Spring was gorgeous and warm enough to enjoy an aperitif in the sun. The only caution is the rather precarious staircase.
Sandwich is totally charming and has everything you need within walking distance - groceries, wine shops, butcher, French deli, good restaurants , and a Thursday market. Lots of beautiful walks nearby, and easy public transport to Canterbury, Broadstairs, Walmer, etc. if you don't want to drive.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 12 days here, and hope to return soon !

“This cottage has everything.”

We stayed at this cottage for four nights and just loved it. Robin welcomed us and gave us lots of useful information. It's beautifully furnished and is very warm, quiet and comfortable. It was difficult for us to drag ourselves away from the log burner! The kitchen is big and is very well stocked with everything we needed. There is also a beautiful garden. There's lots of very interesting information about Thomas Paine. I have no hesitation in recommending this property - perfect!
