I've made a few trips to PE, and this is definitely my top choice to stay in the city. The value for the room and breakfast is amazing, and it is a lovely, peaceful setting where you can relax or get work done in solitude.

Lovely spot to start in PE... Great hosts and wonderfully quiet. Swimmingpool and tennis court available, but we didnt really use them at this time of year Good for couples with their own means of transport or small families.

What a lovely sylvan setting, gracious host and staff, lovely garden suite and good breakfast. It was very special staying in this area as I grew up around the corner and also have friends in Walmer. Nostalgia!
