COVID-19. We have adjusted our calendar this season so that, once restrictions are lifted, we can accommodate visitors as safely as possible. To keep both our staff and our customers safe we have decided to have a minimum of 72 hours between bookings, not only giving plenty of time for a good clean but this being the maximum time the virus can live on any surface. Obviously this will mean less bookings for us as a business but I'm sure you'll appreciate the good sense behind it. We would also ask guests to maintain social distancing between themselves and staff on site A sizeable property with 4 bedrooms (3 x double, 1 x twin) and a bathroom on the 1st floor.

On the ground floor is a large kitchen, cloakroom, lounge/diner, a second bathroom and a separate wc. All bedding and towels supplied. There is a colour TV, dvd, video, books & games. The property is equipped with electric cooker, freezer, microwave, iron, washing machine, fridge, dining table/chairs, central heating, barbecue etc and all rooms are of a good size with ample storage facilities. There is a good size lawned garden. All bedding, towels etc supplied and all utilities included in price. Cot and highchair can be supplied if arranged in advance. A welcome pack is provided. Free Wi-Fi is available but download speeds are not great despite now being fibre-optic. Located on the old Roman road, Stone Street, around 5 miles out of Canterbury on the way to Hythe this is an 18th Century barn which has been converted into two holiday cottages that can be internally linked to form one large property for big parties. Smuggler's Rest is a two-storey, four-bedroomed property and Moonrakers is a two bedroomed ground floor property which is also suitable for disabled use, giving 5 doubles and a twin in total. A cot is also available. Being a former pub/restaurant/hotel the property has sizeable grounds with ample parking areas. The barn has lawns to the sides and rear and guests are welcome to make use of the outside facilities. Picnic tables/seats and barbecue are supplied. Slippery Sam's dates from around 1450 and is a Grade II listed building. It is named after Samuel Jackson, a notorious smuggler who once lived here.More

We were 6 adults and 3 small children and took the whole property (Smugglers Rest & Moonrakers). Loads of space, excellent facilities and lovely big lawn for the kids to play on. Bit dated but that's part of the charm (and the value). And it...More
