I had gone through much stress in finding a suitable property to host a birthday weekend for my partner. First of all, in regards to communication Ian was brilliant in responding quickly and was always informative. The booking process was simple and when we arrived at the property we were pleasantly surprised! Tucked away was the cottage which had plenty of parking space for us all (which was three cars carrying 9 guests) We were greeted by Ian's wife who was so kind and welcoming, she gave us a tour of the house before leaving us to go about our weekend. The house itself was spacious and had everything we needed, each room was a great size and every bed was super comfy. The actual set out and style of the house we all really liked to! The welcome pack of wine, cookies and crisps were also a nice touch. Overall we couldnt have been happier. There arent many photos online of this property that really do it justice, so if you are debating whether or not to book, do it! We are so, so glad we choose this property to book out for the weekend. In the future we would most certainly stay at Smugglers rest again. Thank you to Ian and his lovely wife!

Very clean and beautiful cottage... Nice and calm place for short vacation. We was impressed by the service provided by the owner of this cottage. Very helpful and lovely person to talk. We really enjoyed our stay....
Our family of 6 stayed at Smugglers Rest. We had an amazing time. The directions were perfect. When we arrived very late on our first nigh Ihan greeted us and gave us a walk of the house. 4 bedrooms, full bathroom with tub upstairs, full bathroom and shower downstairs. We loved the sinks in every bedroom, there were no arguments over teeth brushing in the morning. The house was fully furnished including a washer. We cooked several meals at home. The kids enjoyed the garden, we were lucky to have good neighbors with more kids to play with. It was a short drive to downtown Canterbury with all the shops. Perfect and quiet location.
