The Kennels is set in a courtyard setting overlooking an ornamental fountain. The building used to house dogs belonging to the farm, and has been sympathetically converted to provide a spacious two bedroom single storey holiday home. With an open play layout it is ideal for families and friends to enjoy and socialise. Snuggle up by the fire on a cosy winters day after a long countryside walk to the pub, or enjoy the sun trapped garden outside in warmer climes. The large garden is walled and completely enclosed, so your four legged friends are safe to roam and enjoy the outside too.

Great stay 4.3/5

The pictures don't do the property justice it's possibly one of the best we've stayed at. We stayed in January in a cold spell and property was comfortable even with one radiator not working in the lounge the log burner was nice bed comfortable and the shower powerful. The only negatives were motorway noise and no welcome pack of any description but would definitely stay there again

The Kennels House n.4 4.8/5

We had a very pleasant stay at The Kennels. House, location and customer service were just perfect. With the heat in July, a fan would have been nice in the rooms 😉

Amazing place 4.5/5

Absolutely beautiful place. Huge garden. The pictures don't do it justice!!! 10/10. The only issue was location. Its quite remote. You a reach things by car easily, but a walk to the pub or a dog walk from the property isn't feasible. However I wouldn't hesitate to return as its such a wonderful stay.

Gorgeous comfortable stay 4.7/5

This house is a great location for seeing nice bits of Kent. It’s got a massive open plan living room /kitchen area with a lovely high ceiling and wood burning stove and a big garden all perfect if you have kids. The kitchen is nice and big too, lots of room if you’re cooking. It feels very luxurious and comfortable, a real treat to stay in.
