Suited us perfectly ,content:Verified Up Front Reviews
The house was perfect for our family get together - grandparents plus two sons & daughter in laws and six grandchildren. We particularly liked the outdoor seating area in its tranquil setting - and the hot tub was a hit ! Having a large table in the kitchen as well as the living room was great. Well equipped. Owner was so kind and hospitable. We were fortunate with the weather so stayed mainly local but we found the house convenient for our trip to Dover Castle, the lovely walk from the National Trust centre to the South Foreland Lighthouse ( kites on loan were a great idea ) and the Battle of Britain Memorial.,date:2022-08-27,arrival:2022-08-19,departure:2022-08-26,duration:7,month:August,author_first_name:Valerie,author_last_name:Ghinn,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

Hockley House ,content:Verified Up Front Reviews
We had a lovely weekend at Hockley House, it was a great venue to get together with a group of friends and family members for a special celebration. The house is beautifully kept, the bedrooms are extremely comfortable and luxurious, and the outside space is just fantastic for a social get together.

Weekend away for the bride to be ,content:Verified Up Front Reviews
A great staycation at Hockley house. Perfect size for 8 of us and only 10 min drive to Folkestone harbour which had great food a drink outlets. The house itself is a bit dated with some updates needed e.g paint touch ups and some of the bathrooms had a slow flusher. The guidelines in the handbook seem slightly out of date too as there was no chemical dispenser in the hot tub. I enquired about this and the contact email came back quickly to say it was old and no longer valid. Overall it’s a gorgeous house for a nice retreat and although some updates needed I would go back as the kitchen and dining areas were great and very cozy. ,date:2022-06-06,arrival:2022-06-02,departure:2022-06-05,duration:3,month:June,author_first_name:Gemma,author_last_name:Davison,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

Beautiful house and amazing customer service,content:Verified Up Front Reviews
This was a great find, the house is beautiful inside and out. The hot tub was a great addition. The house itself was the perfect size for 12 of us to stay, it had everything we needed. The beds were very comfy. All tucked away in a beautiful area. The owner was very welcoming, and came to see us once we had settled in. She also helped us book a table at a restaurant which was extremely helpful as there were so many of us to accommodate. ,date:2022-04-12,arrival:2022-04-08,departure:2022-04-11,duration:3,month:April,author_first_name:Kelly,author_last_name:Vincent,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

The Perfect Place...,content:Verified Up Front Reviews
Hockley House was absolutely perfect! We stayed on a very relaxed girls holiday and could not have wished for a better accommodation. The house is absolutely stunning and huge, a kitchen stocked with all the right pots and pans for us to host delish dinners, a lounge & dinning room which was so cosy and welcoming and then each bedroom was beautiful (no one felt they had the short straw as all of the rooms were different but gorgeous) I would 100% recommend anyone to stay here whether its with family or friends - the location was also only a 10 min drive to folkestone but you felt like you were in the middle of nowhere - a real escape! Will definitely be returning for a family retreat soon! ,date:2021-07-05,arrival:2021-07-01,departure:2021-07-04,duration:3,month:July,author_first_name:Emily,author_last_name:Ravenscroft,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
