“Great stay”
Reviewed 22 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Arrived at house and was not dissapointed.
James the owner was a great help with the location and sites around and about and nothing was to much trouble.
House was large enough for 6 adults and 2 small children and each couple having their own bathroom/onsuite was great. House has every thing that you will need . Asked James for the use of a cot and high chair which were both there waiting. Pleanty of space in the garden and a good patio with bbq. pleanty of car parking space.
Would book here again.

“Fantastic Property”
Reviewed 15 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Myself and our team stayed at Old Alms House for 4 weeks instead of staying in hotels. What a fantastic, comfortable and well furnished. Had everything you could ask for and more!

James the owner was so helpful and accommodating. Will deferentially book and stay again.

“Lovely stay”
Reviewed 21 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Great place for family stay, really clean and comfy. Underfloor heating throughout so really toasty despite freezing weather. Lovely well equipped kitchen, great showers, comfy beds. Had a nice trip into Canterbury, prob would have gone to howletts zoo which is really near of it hadn't of been so cold. Would love to go back in the summer to make use of the fab garden. Mr Bamford is very helpful and informative about the house. Great stay.

“Fantastic house that combines character with modern amenities”
Reviewed 7 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

This house is just wonderful! Character-filled with lots of space for socialising and relaxing. It is well located with a number of nearby pubs to choose from, the fantastic Howlett's Animal Park a short drive away and Canterbury is only 15 mins in the car.

We had two very young children in our group and they loved the house with it's expansive garden too.

The owner, James, is both hospitable and helpful with lots of advice and guidance when asked for and also information about the lovingly restored alms house.

A great place.
