Best accommodation in Wingham area 5/5

I was welcomed by the friendliest host. A very nice touch of fresh bread and milk was in the kitchen. I had a lovely stay. Everything I needed and more. Parking, well equipped kitchen, TV, wifi, comfortable bed and more. Would highly recommend The Roost

Stunning compact stylish retreat 5/5

From arrival to departure our hosts were simply lovely. The Roost is sparkling clean and yet cosy and welcoming with top notch furniture and all that you could need. Especially comfy bed! Fresh eggs from the resident hens were a lovely addition to food already provided We visited Wingham Animal Park for our first day, a perfect place for a few hours and possibly longer if you are meeting up with relatives and small children as there are plenty of activities and parks as well as a whole host of animals and a nice cafe. Much more reasonable than Howletts if you just want a few hours out. We had a trip into Canterbury to visit the many shops, the usual plus the unusual ! On Sunday we visited the cathedral. A few local walks added to a very relaxing away from it all stay.

My perfect stay at the Roost 5/5

I stayed at the Roost for 6 months over the Winter as a short term let and it was perfect! It had everything I needed. It was light, open and cosy. It had a sweet private courtyard area to sit, a carpark space just outside, enough storage space and a smart TV. It was in a lovely quiet area, with access to some beautiful walks in the countryside. The hosts were very friendly and made sure I was well looked after. They also were very generous with free eggs and vegetables from their farm.

What a lovely place to stay you've made. We couldn't wish for anything better to spend our last 3 nights in the UK. The Roost has everything for a comfy stay! A lovely shower, bed and couch with a more than complete kitchen. Thank you for the more than warm welcome with wonderful tasty goodies. We enjoyed the chats and extra info about places to go. For us it was a place to get some rest after a long week working abroad. Who knows until next time, for sure we would love to come back again either for leisure or work.

What a lucky last minute find The Roost has turned out to be! We have really enjoyed our break here and have also been so lucky with the weather. The Roost provided the ideal accommodation and location to visit the Kent coastline and also Canterbury. Lovely comfy bed and everything you could possibly need and thank you for the eggs, tomatoes, fruit and other goodies you kindly provided.

How we have loved being here over the past 5 days! It was everything we hoped for! The countryside atmosphere was soothing and the apartment had everything that anyone could need to enjoy a lovely holiday. We loved it and if we ever come back in this area we will definitely consider coming back for another stay. Thank you for your friendly, welcome and great service.

What a lovely stay at The Roost. Just right for our 3 night stay could have stayed longer. So nice to see the chickens every morning and thank you for the eggs etc. Due to the hot weather we slept with the windows open and no noise apart from the birds in the morning. Very well equipped and a lovely comfy bed. Highly recommend.

Thank you for the superb accommodation. Spotlessly clean and well appointed and a really comfy bed. An ideal location for our daughters wedding at Preston Court plus we had the added bonus of being provided with the sweetest strawberries you will ever taste. Also the chickens were perfect neighbours.

A very comfortable and homely place to stay near Canterbury.
+ What a gem of a place for a short stay in the Canterbury area. My wife and I spent a week at the Roost after moving down from Manchester and waiting for our house to be ready to move into. The Roost is quite small, but well arranged and is perfectly comfortable enough for a couple for a week - or even more. The kitchen has everything that you need (full size oven and gas hob, plenty of pots and pans, microwave oven, dishwasher and Tassimo coffee maker - there is also access to a washing machine). The bed is comfortable with good quality bed linen and towels. There is a lovely little private paved patio for outdoor eating or tea time. The Roost is in a rural location, just outside Wingham village and a little off the main road, which makes it easy to get to Canterbury, either driving or on the bus (which runs regularly throughout the day and stops about 5 minutes walk from the Roost). Finally, Carys and Tim are such excellent hosts and I would thoroughly recommend the Roost to anybody!

Lovely accommodation - ideal for a couple having a short break.

Beautifully appointment, wonderful having more than enough good quality towels. Weather allowed us to sit outside and is ideal & perfect.

Very welcoming host and so friendly. Having milk, cheese & eggs ready for us to use was a bonus. Heating was a bit tricky to use but we got the hang of it by the end of our stay.

Would heartily recommend the Roost! Best of luck in the enterprise!!

Had a lovely stay for a week visiting family.

Hosts was very welcoming and made us feel right at home. Would definitely recommend Howletts Wildlife & Dover Cliffs to future Guests.

Thanks for a great stay!

Very privileged & pleased that my company booked me in to The Roost for a Monday to Friday stay instead of a hotel.

The accommodation is extremely well presented, very clean and has everything you need to make a comfortable & relaxing stay.

The courtyard area is private and colourful-when the weather is nice would be great to sit outside. The quality of the accommodation is excellent and the bedding & towels are are all very good quality.

The host are very welcoming and want their guests to enjoy their stay. Fresh eggs from the garden were provided and I would definitely recommend a holiday stay here.

5 Star ratting from me.
