The Hangar is a private self contained space built onto our house, so-called because although it is modern, the houses in the area are built on what used to be a World War Two aerodrome where Spitfires would take off to fly across the English Channel. The Battle of Britain Museum is very close by and well worth a visit. The space has a double bedroom and small lounge area with a spare double sofa bed if needed. The new bathroom has a very relaxing power shower. Private patio area is included.
“This is very nice, clean and stylish flat with the amazing owner. My boyfriend had a birthday and Steve decorated the flat with balloons and happy birthday banner! The flat is small but very comfortable and warm. A very nice breakfast was provided. Highly recommended!”
Our large detached house stands in 5 acres of grounds surrounded by open farmland in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the North Kent Downs. Within half hour drive of Eurotunnel, Canterbury, Dover, Folkestone and High Speed Rail to London takes under an hour.
“I arrived in the evening after a long drive and was welcomed by Keith and his lovely dog. We had a great talk and a cup of tea. Then I sank into the (really comfortable) bed. On the next morning the sun woke me up and I had a view out of my window over the green meadows. I was served a delicious breakfast by Jo, with homemade eggs and honey. They gave me a lot of helpful tips for my further journey. Unfortunately I had to leave early, otherwise I would have enjoyed their beautiful garden. The area is very calm and perfect for a longer stay. I highly recommend to stay there.”

“Rebecca and Paddy are very pleasant hosts who offer an excellent accommodation. All facilities very clean and well presented. The bedroom is very comfortable and warm. A lovely, comfortable bed in which I enjoyed great sleeps after a couple of cold, wet days at work. Great range of fruit and breakfast stuff too. Parking is easy on the street outside. Excellent facilities for self-catering and a pub not too far away as well ! Your hosts are definitely going the extra mile here, I thoroughly recommend a stay with them. Thank you Rebecca and Paddy.
