Property Information

Enter this beautifully finished private wing of a country manor, designed with entertaining spaces and home comforts in mind. You will witness the grandeur as soon as you spot the tall chimneys between the trees. Every room is flooded with light, and as it is encompassed within the Kent countryside it is just the ticket for a family getaway anytime of the year. This immaculate home shows off a fusion of antique classics and modernity to make your stay as indulgent as possible, from the large solid oak dining table where you can enjoy a delicious three course meal cooked by a private chef, to the beautifully kept private gardens where you can sample your homemade cocktails, tutored by our skilled mixologists.

Step into the relaxing hot tub after a long stroll around the countryside with your friends, it is the perfect way to end your day. You will be spoilt for choice between the five gorgeous bedrooms to retire in. Dover House lends the most exceptional backdrop for a memorable, sophisticated celebration, whether it be a birthday, anniversary, or just a peaceful trip from start to finish.

Hot Tub & Living Spaces

On the ground floor at Dover House you will discover a stunningly appointed kitchen with the solid oak dining table seating up to twelve guests. The sitting room boasts cosy sofas around an original open fireplace. You can store your coats, bags and shoes in the convenient cloakroom and you will also find a washer and dryer if you are staying for an extended time. Outside, the round sitting area is the perfect setting for a long chat over a bottle (or two) of prosecco, and this overlooks the bubbling outdoor hot tub and courtyard area, where there is space to dine al-fresco if you wish. Champagne, chocolates, juices, biscuits and more can all be enjoyed from the luxury and carefully considered welcome hamper provided upon arrival, and if arranged prior to your stay you may enjoy use of the outdoor pool on the grounds of the manor. For now, relish the privacy of your own wing, gather around the TV on late nights with cheese and wine, the venue not to be missed! You and your closest family and friends will look back with the fondest memories of a relaxed and reviving retreat.

PLACING A NEW BOOKING WITH US DURING COVID-19

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE 18/01/21

Due to COVID-19 we have experienced an overwhelming number of cancellations in 2020 due to all the restrictions, as we proceed into 2021/22 there is every chance future cancellations may take place, therefore the risk is much higher to us as a company and indeed our guests of a cancellation taking place for bookings with more than one household. We are all hopeful restrictions will be eased by spring and with the rollout of the vaccine hope is in sight for everyone!

As much as we have been able to help hundreds of customers in 2020 with refunds and postponements, we have had an extreme amount of admin and as a small family run business this means ensuring our staff are working around the clock to offer the best customer service possible, which is great for all our customers but unfortunately we have not been able to take advantage of Furlough for many of our staff as it is important to us to make sure at all times we are looking after our guests as priority! It truly has been a challenging time!

After careful consideration in line with keeping our customer service to a high standard,  we are only accepting new bookings for one household group + support bubble in 2021/22 under our normal terms and conditions & COVID-19 policy.  Which means bookings made under these terms and conditions would only be entitled to a refund if the holiday let was closed by law. No refunds would be offered due to restrictions on households mixing as all bookings should be for 1 household/ support bubble only. This will result in less cancellations for us and our guests.

“Large Group Policy”

A special contract designed with large groups in mind

Bookings can be accepted for multiple households under our “Large Group Policy” for £75. This amount is non-refundable and covers the risks of cancellation involved by us in taking such a booking during the pandemic.  Refunds/Postponements would be offered if your booking cannot go ahead due to restrictions by law (not guidance) on households/numbers or if the holiday let has to close by law.  Refunds would only be for the accommodation and activities and would be less the booking fee paid and the Large Group Policy fee.

Our Large Group Policy is not insurance, this does not cover you if you had to cancel your booking due to contracting COVID-19 or any other illness and could not attend, it does also not cover you if you wish to cancel your booking with us and have changed your mind about wishing to stay.   It does not cover you if you wish to cancel due to government guidance and not law.

We do insist that all our customers take out their own travel insurance to cover you in the event you have to cancel your booking.

EXISTING BOOKINGS

If you have a booking with us for more than 6 people / 1 household/support bubble our customer care team will be in touch with you when we know the restrictions in place nearer the time of your stay. Due to the volume of admin it is not possible for us to postpone / refund your booking until approximately 4 weeks prior to arrival

All January guests have now been contacted.

All February guests have now been contacted.

All March guests will be contacted in mid – February

It is not possible to refund or postpone your booking in advance of these dates.

Any premature cancellations will be subject to our normal terms and conditions.

All Balances do have to be paid on time to keep your booking in place, any balance not paid may result in your booking being cancelled and loss of any deposit paid. We ask that you wait for our customer care team to contact you to discuss your bookings and give you options nearer the time of your stay.

Due to the volume of admin we have to deal with imminent bookings as priority, so we kindly ask you for your patience.

If you have any questions regarding your booking please email customercare@celebrationcottages.co.uk

THANK YOU

We thank all our customers for all your continued support, its truly been a challenging time for everyone! We honestly cannot wait for life to return to normal when once again we can welcome large groups back to enjoy celebrating special times together!
