We wanted a charming English cottage, and thats exactly what Gore Cottage is. Theres a rustic charm to the place, and while we mightve worried about the creature comforts in an older building, we found the internet, heating (in February), and all else were in great shape.

Its location is also great in a central area for exploring Kent, and the village businesses were good. Would recommend! Hide

Gore cottage is a lovely place to stay, it had all you need for your stay and a great safe garden for the dogs. Not far from the village centre which had a good pub, bakers and butchers, also a post office and general store. Easter is a great location to explore East Kent, with good roads to Sandwich and Deal also out to Ramsgate and down to Dover.Read more Would recommend a visit especially if you have dogs. Hide
