We have booked holiday homes in kent for the last 12 years. Cant believe we missed this stunning place. Just walking down the garden path blew us away. I will start with the views. As the house is on a cliff top you have full views across the channel, ferries going past every few minutes, france when no rain or low cloud/fog. St Margarets bay below. All this from garden, patio, living room with its glass front doors and the top floor bedroom the same. Very nice garden leading onto cliff walks. The owners have made this a really special place. Room was comfy and warm, kitchen is very well laid out with everything you possibly need, both bedrooms very well presented and huge en-suite in both. Double sinks, big showers, big mirrors and toilet. Even a seperate bath in top floor bedroom overlooking the channel. Beds were super comfy. The best thing about top bedroom is the view just lying in bed. Dont bother with the curtains why miss the scenery? The free wifi was a bonus as the monday was monsoon day so kids were happy on their laptops while the wife and I chilled on the sofa with tv and freesat and dvds. The welcome pack of bread/tea/coffee/milk/eggs/jams/cookies was a very nice touch. Owners very pleasant. Needless to say this is now our favourite letting so we sure to try and book again. Dont miss out if you looking for luxury place in kent because this is what you want.

Our second time back didn't disappoint. We can't wait to return! The views, quality accommodation, location right on the cliffs & tranquility are fantastic.

“A stunning cottage with amazing views of the White Cliffs...”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This cottage is simply beautiful. The hosts have thought of everything. The welcome pack is a lovely touch and the folder of information has been well thought out.
The decor in the cottage is really tasteful and the maximum use has been made of the space. Everything is high quality, from the really comfortable beds & linen, right down to the toiletries.
This is a restful place, with breath taking views of the White Cliffs.
It is an excellent spot for sketching and painting too.
Our young daughter loved running round the garden, which has a secret garden type gate leading to the beach/cliffs and a coastal walk.
I would highly recommend this cottage and will hopefully be revisiting in the future!

“Simply wonderful!”

Where to start? well, to kick off...IF you´re wondering whether to book...just do it, cos you´ll not be disappointed here. the charming and helpful hosts have really thought of everything. beautiful bienvenue has the most wonderful location with fabulous views over st margaret´s bay, the english channel and white cliffs. the property is quite luxurious, certainly very smart and very well equipped, clean as a whistle, stylishly and comfortably furnished....with lovely bedding and towels. everything speaks of quality. to the rear there´s a great patio and garden. a gate (lockable) leads onto the coastal path above those famous cliffs. excellent walks in either direction. bienvenue is perfect for a romantic break. the upper bedroom has a superbly comfortable large double bed (VIEWS!!!) and a slipper bath (i repeat...VIEWS!!) where you can wallow with a champagne (or two) in hand. i did. sadly we were only here for a few days but there´s enough to do in and around st margaret´s (great walking country) to warrant a much longer stay. 2 -3 weeks would be perfect. canterbury, whitstable, sandwich, broadstairs, sissinghurst, bateman´s, south foreland +cliffs......i could go on and on. just take a look at the map or national trust brochures. the village and bay of st margaret´s are lovely. plenty of choice in places to dine. so, many thanks to our hosts. we had a wonderful time. i´m only sorry that we´d not found bienvenue and st margaret´s earlier...just look what we´ve been missing! we´ll be back.
