This was the 2nd time we stayed at Moonrakers. It was exactly as remembered from 5 years ago. Cosy & comfortable, not exactly modern partly due to the building being so old and listed if i remember correctly. Had everything needed for a pleasant stay....More

Very easy ample parking, with the cottage being clean and suitably equipped. Being on one level it was very suitable for my disabled mother. Easy links to major motorways.

About the neighbourhood
Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty some 4 miles outside of the cathedral city of Canterbury on the old Roman road to Hythe.
