A really good large family visit,content:Verified Up Front Reviews
Customs House was an excellent venue for our very large family of 20 - aged from 5 upwards. There were spaces for us all to chill out and plenty room to eat around the large dinner tables. The setting of Customs House is just magical for an outgoing and sociable group - in addition to the creek with boats and a boatyard nearby there are cafes, quirky shops and a great pizza bar with tables outside and serving excellent pizzas which we all enjoyed. We stayed over October half term and were so lucky with the mild and sunny weather but it would be great there in the spring and summer too and there are walks around the town and countryside that can be enjoyed all year round. We really liked Faversham town and the markets and also our short trip to Whitstable and a totally different vibe. ,date:2022-10-31,arrival:2022-10-26,departure:2022-10-30,duration:4,month:October,author_first_name:Judy,author_last_name:Ironside,author_town:,author_recommend:Yes,reply: ,ratings_Cleanliness:5,ratings_Service and Staff:5,ratings_Comfort:5,ratings_Condition:5,ratings_Location:5,ratings_Value For Money:5,ratings_Average:5 /5

Customs House stay,content:Verified Up Front Reviews
Customs House was our choice for a special anniversary with our large family and it was a great success. The house is perfect for large groups with ten very comfortable bedrooms, and very spacious living and dining areas. There is a pleasant garden and patio with lots of seating. Standard Quay where it is situated has lots of antique and bric a brac shops excellent for browsing, and a fabulous butcher whose tomahawk steaks we cooked on the barbeque! There are also restaurants and cafes.,date:2022-09-16,arrival:2022-09-09,departure:2022-09-12,duration:3,month:September,author_first_name:Robert,author_last_name:Wightman,author_town:,author_recommend:Yes,reply: ,ratings_Cleanliness:5,ratings_Service and Staff:5,ratings_Comfort:5,ratings_Condition:5,ratings_Location:5,ratings_Value For Money:5,ratings_Average:5 /5

Diamond Anniversary,content:Verified Up Front Reviews
Lovely house, excellent location we would certainly book again, a few little things would have made it perfect, cushions for outside seating, bbq tools and a few door knobs loose, which we notice had all been mentioned before.,date:2022-08-03,arrival:2022-07-21,departure:2022-07-25,duration:4,month:July,author_first_name:Maureen,author_last_name:Kettell,author_town:,author_recommend:Yes,reply: ,ratings_Cleanliness:5,ratings_Service and Staff:5,ratings_Comfort:5,ratings_Condition:4,ratings_Location:5,ratings_Value For Money:4,ratings_Average:4.7 /5

Tired property- excellent location,content:Verified Up Front Reviews
Good for a large family gathering but needs attention to details/condition at this price. One main bedroom wall paint peeling off in places (or damaged) Areas of damp in basement Many dining room chairs stained and need replacing TV control incomprehensible but plenty of channels -either instructions or a new TV needed Lots of paint peeling off the rails leading up into house A few cups and glasses chipped when arrived Overall could be excellent but needs some tender loving care The 9am curfew is annoying preventing small children going out into garden but the next door neighbour makes sure you adhere to it by giving a lecture ,date:2022-07-19,arrival:2022-07-14,departure:2022-07-18,duration:4,month:July,author_first_name:Guest,author_last_name:,author_town:,author_recommend:Yes,reply: ,ratings_Cleanliness:4,ratings_Service and Staff:5,ratings_Comfort:4,ratings_Condition:2,ratings_Location:5,ratings_Value For Money:3,ratings_Average:3.8 /5

Great location,content:Verified Up Front Reviews
Great location, ideal for family get togethers with restaurants and bars close by. Beautiful house - spacious bedrooms, nice dining area and clean, functional bathrooms. Could improve on finishing touches - living room furniture is a bit outdated and kitchen could be better equipped - e.g. only 1 functioning frying pan (2 others needed replacing), kettles furred up and family size dishwasher not really adequate for larger parties of 8 or more - we were 15! Door handles need fixing too - they have a tendency to fall off.,date:2022-06-27,arrival:2022-06-23,departure:2022-06-26,duration:3,month:June,author_first_name:Miles,author_last_name:Robinson,author_town:,author_recommend:Yes,reply: ,ratings_Cleanliness:4,ratings_Service and Staff:5,ratings_Comfort:4,ratings_Condition:4,ratings_Location:5,ratings_Value For Money:4,ratings_Average:4.3 /5

Family holiday,content:Verified Up Front Reviews
We hired Customs House for a family holiday over the October half term. We were a group of 17 and two dogs. The house was spacious and more than large enough to cater for the group. The beds were very comfortable and there was always hot water despite so many people in the house. Location was great with lots of restaurants and bars in Faversham to chose from. The quay in which the house is located on also had a couple of nice bars and antique shops to look around. Would definitely recommended for a family holiday.,date:2021-11-01,arrival:2021-10-23,departure:2021-10-30,duration:7,month:October,author_first_name:Sally,author_last_name:Leach,author_town:,author_recommend:Yes,reply: ,ratings_Cleanliness:4,ratings_Service and Staff:5,ratings_Comfort:5,ratings_Condition:4,ratings_Location:5,ratings_Value For Money:5,ratings_Average:4.7 /5
