"Victoria’s place is simply magical! It feels like you've stepped into a vintaged escapade. Its location is simply spot on for exploring Canterbury, Leeds Castle and Dover White cliffs. It is by far the best airbnb experience I have had. Victoria was very helpful , and welcoming. Her cottage made our weekend getaway sensational."
"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."
"Victoria's cottage is a beautiful place to stay, and perfectly located in the middle of Kent. It's definitely the most stylish Airbnb that I've stayed in yet, with lots of little touches that make it feel like a special place. The cottage itself is split over three levels, which we really liked as we had a tiny baby in tow which made it easier to cook in the evenings whilst giving lots of space to the parents upstairs. Also, the shower pressure was unbelievable! So used to showering under trickles of water in cottages, but here it's like a jet wash. Location wise it is perfect - 30 minutes from Whitstable in one direction, 20 minutes from Sandwich Bay in the other, and Canterbury just 15 minutes down the road. Wingham is also very picturesque, with a couple of good pubs (The Dog was our favourite) and a beautiful church. I would definitely recommend staying at Victoria's cottage if you're looking for a comfortable and stylish place in a beautiful setting."
"Victoria's cottage was fantastic. We stayed over the Christmas period and cooked a full Christmas dinner. Victoria was so accommodating and even got is a Christmas tree. The accommodation was pristine and incredibly stylish. Highly recommend Victoria's cottage."
"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."
"What a fantastic space! The levels of hospitality you would expect from a top class hotel but with the flexibility and amenities of an AirBnb. All the bedrooms are very well appointed, and the living room space was spacious and the kitchen was well equipped for cooking. Highly recommend."
