"Delightful spacious cottage in an ideal location. Well equipped kitchen, en-suite plus ground floor shower room. Enclosed pretty garden which the dogs enjoyed. Care needed when stepping out of the front door as the cottage is very close to the street. Easy all day paid parking by the Quay close by. Sandwich is a wonderful place to visit. Great pubs and walks. We had a very relaxing stay."
