    5/5 Excellent

      charming quiet spacious location.

      Delighted with the seclusion and lovley garden setting. Everything was spick and span and tasteful inside. streetmap.co.uk gave a slightly misplaced location with the postal address!

      5/5 Excellent

        One night not nearly enough.

        We booked The Granary for the night before boarding a cruise out of Dover. It's now top of our list for the next trip back. Hazel and Robin are delightful hosts and their property reflects their love of place It's a peaceful retreat, surrounded by a lovely garden. It had everything we needed from a full kitchen to a much needed washer and dryer. We didn't have a chance to scoop up fresh eggs from next door, but that's on the list for the next trip too!

        5/5 Excellent

          Homely in a great area

          This pair of conjoined wood-clad buildings might seem dinky from the outside but open up to a spacious, comfortable, homely, super clean interior comprising a comfy living room, a bedroom with a vast sumptuous bed, a bathroom with a shower and tub and a well equipped kitchen graced with delicious initial supplies. The owners were relaxed and charming. We found it the perfect base for exploring the surrounding area of outstanding natural beauty, the coastal path and nearby canal, the RSPB reserve at Dungeness, and the handsome town of Rye. Our weekend break was a huge tonic. We can’t wait to go back.

              What a little Gem!

              Set in a beautiful garden, the pretty Granary has absolutely everything you need. A huge comfy bed in a lovely big bedroom, a large living area with comfortable furniture, well equipped kitchen and a neat bathroom. It is close enough to the ferry/tunnel to make it a great stop over point, but far enough away from the noise and traffic of Dover or Folkstone. Robin and Hazel are friendly hosts, chatty but not intrusive. Perfect! Will definitely stay here again when we come this way.
