"Victoria’s place is simply magical! It feels like you've stepped into your little vintaged escapade. Its location is simply spot on for exploring Canterbury, Leeds Castle and Dover White Cliffs. It is by far the best stay experience I have had. Victoria was very helpful and welcoming. Her cottage made our weekend getaway sensational."
"This is a beautifully renovated property in a great spot to explore the beautiful Kent countryside. The bedrooms all have really nice en suite bathrooms and the whole place is really stylish. Victoria was a great host, responded quickly to our queries and made us feel very welcome. Highly recommended!"
"This is a lovely apartment with all the amenities needed. It is centrally located in a quaint village with delicious eateries within walking distance. The accommodations are extraordinary with space for everyone! This experience was truly exceptional; thank you, Victoria!"
"We stayed at Victoria's beautiful house for a weekend to go to a wedding in Margate. Compared to local hotels this was a much cheaper option and so much nicer. The house is finished to an excellent standard with quality furnishings and fittings. As we were 3 couples we expected that not all rooms would be the same standard, but there really wasn't a 'bad room'. Victoria sent great communication and had put plenty of milk and water in the fridge for our arrival. Would definitely recommend and stay here again."
"This is a beautifully decorated and charming home spread over three floors with a lovely view of the Kentish countryside from the rear. It is impeccably clean, with very comfortable beds, toilets, showers and air conditioning in every bedroom. Victoria was a perfect host and offered some great suggestions for local dining options. We had a great stay and can't recommend Victoria and her place highly enough."
"We really enjoyed our stay in Wingham, Victoria has a beautiful home with a lot of style. Everything was well thought out, the communication was brilliant and Victoria gave us lots of tips of local places to try. Our children loved Wingham wildlife park and The Dog Pub (across the road) was very welcoming. We’ll definitely be back."
