“Idyllic setting - wonderful hosts!”
Reviewed 14 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This really is a beautiful cottage- very well appointed - and only recently added to property so everything is new. Very tasteful decor. Trevor was there to greet my sister and I when we arrived and he could not have been more welcoming - we felt very at home. As with other quests we had scones, cream, strawberries and even a bottle of wine in the fridge. There was a lovely patio to sit out on in the evening with a beautiful view of the garden (which is secluded and VERY large). We loved the fact there was a loo downstairs! The TV was enormous and we enjoyed playing the board games. We visited Sissinghurst, Leeds and Scotney during our stay - all easy to get to. And there is a Tescos in West Malling only a couple of miles away. Bedroom and ensuite are bright and clean - amazing views too!! All in all a brilliant stay and we would definitely return - many thanks Trevor and Christine for being such great hostsx

“Perfect Cute Cottage for Two!”
Reviewed 5 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

My partner and I stayed at Derbies Cottage for 2 nights in May. A lovely cottage situated on a quiet country road, which is great if you want to enjoy a peaceful and quiet weekend.

The cottage was better than we had anticipated and the owners Trevor and Christine had thought of everything that we may need during our stay. The customer service was flawless and we were even greeted with fresh strawberries, cream and scones, plus a bottle of wine which was a lovely touch.

The cottage is very clean, fresh, modern and spacious with a great view from the bedroom. It is located in East Malling and not far from the bigger towns like Maidstone and we also visited Canterbury while we were there :)

“Beautiful and well equipped cottage”
Reviewed 25 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We were honoured to be the first to stay at this delightful holiday letting. Our welcome package was an unexpected treat and the owners made us feel very welcome. The property has been decorated and furnished to a high standard and we will definitely make this an annual visit.
