Reviews

A lovely studio with everything you need for a few days break in the relaxing Kent countryside. Rachel couldn't have been more helpful and we were grateful for everything she did to help us. The surrounding villages are beautiful and a visit to The Bull at Benenden is a must. A word of advice though, if you want to eat there you must book in advance, such is its popularity. If you decide to take a walk across the fields we suggest you take an OS map. We got lost and the phone signal is sporadic at best. Our thanks to a lovely lady who came to our rescue, she helped us on our way, walking part of the route with us and she was there at the end of our walk to make sure we reached our destination safely. All in all we had a lovely time and will definitely return to this idyllic part of the beautiful Kent countryside.

Couple from L,

Very comfortable, great location and warm welcome. Enjoyed stay very much. Would be nice to have a full length mirror provided - poss on the wall between front and bathroom door. Lovely towels and heated towel rail kept it warm and cosy! Kitchen storage a little restricted - Would consider staying again.

Miss Hazel S,

A lovely stay with a warm welcome in very relaxing surroundings.

Mr Adam M,

Mrs M B,

good clean well equipped unit , rural location. all in all we had an excellent break.

Mr John T,

I appreciate the provisions provided, including bread, butter, eggs and delicious cake. The flowers add an appropiate touch. I spent just over a week at the Barn Studio and was surprised that the towels and bedding were changed, and the studio cleaned and tidied. This is an example of the consideration shown by my hosts who are always welcoming and helpful.

Mrs Alison B,
