Northwood Lodge is in a semi rural location close to the sea. It's a stylish country home, ideal for a relaxing retreat from city life where guests will be treated to a comfy bed in a pretty room and enjoy a generous breakfast. In the red room I have a day bed pictured for which I charge £20 extra a night. I have two double bedrooms so if you'd like to book both please also go to Northwood 2.

The space

A roomy Victorian Coach House with two double bedrooms, a luxurious bathroom to share with a big walk in shower and free standing iron slipper bath. The double rooms are spacious and overlook each of the gardens front and back. The front garden is planted with vegetables and fruit to be eaten in season.

Guest access

Guests will have access to their own drawing room with large TV. Wifi is available and there is a radio in each room. I do Dinnermas, which is dinner and a movie in the coach house room with a 6'x8' drop down screen and surround sound. This costs £35 per head.

Interaction with guests

I will be around for guests to talk to and help them have the best stay possible.

Other things to note

Over Bank Holidays I only accept bookings for 2 or more nights. I have four polite cats but the house would not be ideal for allergy sufferers. I'm a good cook and happy to provide suppers or take away lunches with the appropriate notice and for extra charge.

Well behaved dogs are welcome but I have cats so they must be on the lead at all times. Children are welcome but I need to mention that this is not a particularly child friendly house in that I have a lot of antiques and precious things lying around and there are no child locks on the bathroom cabinet. There is no smoking in the house. I hope that people will come here for a relaxing time and not to party til dawn!

Beautiful house and garden. Emma was welcoming and we enjoyed one night at her place. Possible without a car, we got a taxi from Whitstable and walked to the station in Herne Bay the next day. Beautiful decor, loved the bath particularly. Thanks for all

Emma has a beautiful home, surrounded by a gorgeous garden. We had a wonderful stay in a very comfy bed and woke up to a delicious breakfast.

We were delighted to stay at Emma's beautiful Victorian Coach House - imagine something straight out of Country Living magazine! Emma was a wonderful and jovial host who cooked us a scrumptious breakfast in her lovely kitchen. It was an absolute pleasure staying here and I would highly recommend it to others!

Brilliant location, wonderful home, great facilities and the host was a real delight! Rooms really comfortable and a lovely breakfast, plus the added advantage of cats! We had such a great time and when we're down in Kent again there's no where we'd rather stay.

I am always pleased to meet new people and I make friends easily. I am an enthusiastic gardener and grow my own fruit and vegetables. I'm also very keen on food and cooking. I love trying new recipes and making up my own. I worked in the film business for 20 years and so I'm passionate about films and always relish talking to people about their favourites and things they've recently seen. Since I moved out of London I've joined a choir and we sing 5 times a year in Canterbury Cathedral, so far I've sung in Russian, German, Latin and English. I love it! I care deeply about my environment and did a year's worth of make over on my house, rebuilding, restoring, painting, and buying the most wonderful antiques to fill it. There are fabulous antique and brocante shops all within a reasonable drive of here and I'd be happy to point guests in the right direction. I used to travel for business a hell of a lot which was a fantastic way to see places like Istanbul, Sarajevo and Kigale in Rwanda. Also more usual spots like Cannes for the Film Festival and similarly Toronto, Venice, Rome and Berlin. Now, I'm a home body and like nothing better than being busy in my garden and watching a movie in the evening on my big screen projector. I have four cats that I love and a load of interesting, slightly eccentric friends that I have made since moving out of London. I'm very lucky.
