‘We stayed at the end of May 2023. The pool was great and we all had an amazing time using these private facilities, along with the games room. The grounds were stunning and it was really relaxing and peaceful, listening to the birds all day. However, we were disappointed to find the ball hoop game still broken from July 2022 (as noted in the guest comments book.) The blinds throughout were dirty, stained and ill-fitting; the dining chairs had bits all over them and we had to clean them and the table before we could eat. The carpets didn’t appear to have been hoovered either. The bedrooms upstairs had a terrible smell - kind of like wet dog! We febrezed then all week but the smell was still there. The tap water and shower water also smelt, so we drank bottled water all week. Lots of cracks, debts and marks all over walls. The pool was its saving grace, as was the punting down the river (Canterbury Punting Co.) which we’d highly recommend. Lots of choice for gluten free eating if you research first too - our son is coeliac so this was really helpful indeed. All in all, a wonderful holiday but the accommodation needs some tlc.’

‘Wandering around the private grounds, playing football and swimming whenever we liked were standouts. Location ideal for visiting Kent’s attractions. Bloom’s help outside hours was perfect, thank you.’

‘We had a lovely stay at Honeywood Lodge. It is close to London and ideal for small families with kids as the accommodation is not too big but with the huge benefit of a private indoor pool. The property was clean, well appointed and easy to access. There were one or two hitches like the microwave not working and the mattresses could be more comfy but overall a brilliant stay.’

‘We had a wonderful stay at Honeywood Lodge with our young family. Everything was accommodated for and my children loved the use of the fantastic private indoor pool. We were incredibly lucky with the weather which allowed us to enjoy the large garden to its full extent. A great property that we have already recommended and cannot wait to book our next stay!’

‘I spent a lovely week at Honeywood Lodge in April with my wife, two children and my parents. The property is a great place to visit with children of all ages thanks to the pool, games room and substantial grounds. The pool is a great size and my children (aged 6 and 3 at the time) were happy to play in there for over an hour at a time without getting cold. The games room had table-football, air hockey and a basket ball game. The outside grounds were great for a ramble and there was a large field with football goals. The property is very warm despite a couple of slightly draughty windows - we actually turned the heating down during our stay even though the weather was very windy. The bedrooms are all a good size and the beds were comfortable enough for us (if you’re a bit fussy about your mattress you’ll probably want to bring a topper). If you’re a light sleeper you might want to bring ear-plugs as there were birds nesting on/close to the roof which were sometimes a bit active after 10.30pm and the first floor has creaky floorboards that might wake those sleeping on the ground floor. Shower rooms were very spacious. Elderly visitors will be comfortable on both the ground and first floor bedrooms as there are toilets on both floors. The kitchen amenities have been updated since the photos were taken. There is now a four burner hob and full sized oven. There is also a second larger fridge on the ground floor…knowing this ahead of the trip would have changed our meal planning. I would strongly consider coming back for another visit which I rarely say as I usually want to visit new places. I’m sure the decking on the ground-floor bedroom and pool would have been lovely to use during the summer. Very jealous of the owners of this great property. Thank you.’

‘We had a wonderful short break in Honeywood Lodge. The pool is amazing! The grounds were beautiful and we loved our walks. The games area was a great touch and the lodge would suit couples and families offering different entertainment for all. Such a small thing to mention but was disappointed with bedding was not ironed in the two upstairs bedrooms and looked untidy upon arrival. When you are paying for a top quality place to stay you expect everything to be clean and tidy. This would not stop me from staying again as we loved the pool so much.’

‘We loved our time at Honeywood Lodge. Kitted out with everything we needed (including multiple fans during the mini-heatwave), we had a wonderful stay. The lodge was incredibly clean and the pool area was a wonderful added bonus. Can’t wait to visit again in future.’

‘A lovely family holiday home with great facilities and in a great location. Really private / secluded and had the whole of the grounds to ourselves. In terms of feedback - the blinds in the upstairs bedrooms were in a bad state and became a bit of an issue when trying to get the room dark enough for young children to sleep in, the gaps in the blinds meant that light poured in from 5am. We also struggled slightly with the pool temperature - it was manageable for adults but the kids were unable to stay in there for more than 15 minutes because it was too cold. We followed all instructions and kept the covers on over night and when not in use but it didn't seem to warm it up enough. Other than that, we had a lovely stay.’

‘We had such a lovely break as we stayed at the beautiful Honeywood Lodge in Canterbury! The place has a beautiful green space, but also a game room and can accommodate 6 people. The bedrooms were so nicely decorated and we enjoyed the space for the day. We really enjoyed having a private pool for the day and we made the most of it. Honeywood Lodge is such a beautiful location in a quiet spot of Canterbury. We loved being in the garden. The rooms in the loft were spacious and light. The bed was super comfy and the living room space is also big enough to relax with your family. Thanks to Bloom Stays for making sure we were happy with the house. Really good customer service!’

‘We enjoyed a great family holiday at Honeywood Lodge. The accommodation was as to be expected from images provided & all was spotlessly clean on arrival. Location was excellent for visiting many of Kent’s attractions. It was also quiet & tranquil, whilst being close enough to access Canterbury’s conveniences within a few mins drive. Heated pool was a huge hit with the kids. Kept them busy for hours allowing adults lots of time for coffee, croissants & books! Nikki @ Bloomstays dealt with a couple of minor issues (wheelie bin full on arrival & low shower temp) pleasantly & efficiently. We would have no hesitation in booking with Bloomstays again in the future.’

‘Our family spent 7 nights at Honeywood Lodge and just wished we could stay longer! Everything from initial enquiry to arrival was first class and the communication was brilliant throughout! The property is simply amazing in a wonderful location and the pool was the firm family favourite! The kids spent hours each day splashing and having fun in the pool, which was safe, clean and much bigger than expected. We visited the City a couple of times as well as the local pub and with shops nearby, we had everything we needed. Just wished we had more than 7 nights! Hope to stay again and will certainly recommend to friends.’
