Bonnington Cottage is the most quintessential English cottage you could possibly find! The Grade II Listed cottage was initially a granary belonging to the Boys family dating back to 1666. Enjoy a piece of history whilst staying here and feel like you've gone back in time.....yet enjoy all the modern home comforts within a period house. Sit by the log fire and enjoy a glass of wine on a cosy winter's day .... or bask in the sun trap garden in the summer. Ideal for families or friends there is so much to see and do on your doorstep. The village of Goodnestone is home to the wonderful Goodnestone Park where you can enjoy their gardens and afternoon tea, or venture further afield with the children to the nearby Howletts Wild Animal Park. The coast is within easy reach as well as the history City of Canterbury.

Cozy cottage , great location 5/5

We spent a lovely week at Bonnington cottage. It is convenient for visiting all the seaside towns. The location of the cottage is really quiet and peaceful, the walk down the lane to the village is beautiful and Goodnestone gardens are a must visit. The cottage has everything required, comfortable bed, good shower, hot water, fully stocked kitchen for cooking. We sat out in the garden most of the time as the weather was good, the seating was comfortable.

We enjoyed the cottage and the surrounding region very much and will definitely come back! 4.8/5

Bonnnington cottage is a delightful authentic cottage situated in a beautiful region. Everything we needed was there, we visited interesting places like Canterbury, Sandwich, Deal, Dover and twice nearby Goodnestone Park Gardens. Furthermore we made lots of lovely walks in the countryside like The Serpetine Walk. We will come back soon for sure!

I met a good man who showed me a great life during lock down. We spent 3 months here living our best life. May the next guests be as fulfilled as I am. Thank you!

We came here not for the weather ( which was just as well - it rained every day!) but for somewhere to relax & escape from routine for a few days. The lovely cottage & surrounding countryside is perfect for this. Plenty of places to visit without having to travel far. The Serpentine walk & Goodnestone Gardens were a delight (on the 'driest' day of the week). Gibsons Farm Shop was perfect for picking up treats & presents. Thank you so much!

Great house, comfortable & warm, surrounded by quiet, peaceful countryside and plenty of lovely walks. Good food & drink at the Fitzwater Arms and tea & cake in the gardens. Enjoyed exploring the coast from Conyer & Whitstable to St Margarets Bay- Special mention for Sandwich Town Trail, Ramsgate Tunnels & Ice-creams at Broadstairs. P.s If I could, I would take the bed home with me!! Bliss!!

We came for a peaceful & Relaxing break and we certainly got that! We've done several walks and visited local places of interest - weather has been amazing and the cottage is quirky & cosy! Can recommend Canterbury, The White Cliffs and Fitzwalter Arms for dinner - where the food and service was excellent.

Lovely old building. Very quiet area and good to have pubs and tea rooms to walk to. Great Location for visiting this area and all it has to offer. Recommendation for the good food & atmosphere - The Griffins Head, 2 miles from here and The Fitzwater Arms on foot across the lane.
