A very interesting article appeared in the Saturday Guardian, a couple of weeks ago, on the Romney Marsh area. You can read the article here:
Sadly they missed out on the TARDIS experience in Lydd!
The cottage is now booked out for virtually the whole of April - clearly two successive four-day weekends, bookended by bank holidays, Easter and the Royal Wedding mean that people are keen to book some time away.
It is interesting that most of the bookings have been quite last minute - not sure if this is due to people seeing how the economic situation is developing or the balmy weather of the last week making people think about being by the sea!
So far the bookings have been quite a mixture. A few couples have stayed - the cottage seems to be popular as a birthday or anniversary surprise for a spouse who is a fan of Doctor Who.
Not surprisingly, Easter seems to be popular for families. I have been a little concerned at not having any bookings for the Summer, yet, but perhaps if people are not going abroad they leave it later than they usually might?

Now we have had a few guests at the cottage it is great to be getting some feedback and to know that people are enjoying it all as much as I had hoped they would.
Hannah wrote "Had a wonderful time in the cottage. Beautiful and cosy place, very welcoming. The area is also nice and charming. We really enjoyed exploring the area by day and discovering classic who by night. Thank you for an amazing week."
Lindsay recommends The George Hotel "What a cute cottage! Very lovely area, highly recommend The George for friendly staff, good food and internet. Amazing Who collection - I loved waking up and seeing the Tardis out the window!"
Sarah said "Had a lovely time! This was a great holiday! Thank you for all the hard work in setting this cottage up!"
It is comments like that which really make me feel it was all worthwhile.
Yesenia comes from America and wrote "As an LA based fan it's difficult to find Doctor Who based adventures so thank you for making this location/home available for new memories."
The photos here have been kindly suppled by Steve and his wife, who stayed last week - loved Steve's comment "I love everything here. I am in Nerd Heaven!"
I think that my brother would have loved the fact that so many people are enjoying the cottage and his collection.
