Reviews

The property booked was a great surprise. Based very close to the owners property at first sight the property appears small from the allotted parking area parallel to it. Extremely handy. However deceptively once inside, the converted barn is large and welcoming. Warm and filled with light, the atmosphere gives you a relaxing feel from the moment you step inside. Our host and hostess could not have been kinder, providing a much needed welcome pack on arrival. Pointing out areas of interest during our stay our hosts guided us to discover just some of the beautiful hidden parts of Kent. The wood stove and underfloor heating, during a particular spate of unpredictable weather for Autumn, was a joy to return to. The weather did not stop our exploring and coming back to warm showers resting well at night, and playing games by the fireside completed a superb much needed break. Thank you we would love to come again.

Mrs Paula B,

Beautiful property, lovely landlords, helpful, attentive, a pleasure to deal with them.

Mr Dieter M,

We liked and enjoyed the house from the very beginning. Comfortable, clean, full equipped. Billy and Georgina were very helpful.

Mr Carlos O,

Fabulous property and welcoming owners. One of the best we’ve stayed in, and we’ve stayed in a lot! Thank you

Mrs Katie W,

The accommodation is very comfortable. The area has much to offer, either on foot or motoring round the beautiful Kent countryside. Spoilt for choice for local eateries, if you are prepared to look around the area.

Mr Alan R,

Lovely barn, very friendly and helpful owners. Handy having the farm shop/cafe close. Enjoyed our too short stay, comfy beds and would stay again.

Mrs Julie M,

Lovely space & amazing farm shop. Very pleasant owners & peaceful location. Thank you for the cake.

Mr S,

The hosts were great, very friendly, we ended up packing a lot of food to bring with us, however, we could have got everything we needed from the farm shop behind the property so i think its worth mentioning the extent of what can be bought there - fishmongers, butchers etc

Mrs Delia M,

Thank you for our lovely stay in this cosy cottage.

Mrs M,

Thanks for four cosy days in this warm, well-equipped barn. Beautiful weather added to its charm!

Mr A,

Two very comfortable weeks, quiet and peaceful with glorious weather. Location perfect for touring Kent and East Sussex. Loved Penshurst Place, Pashley Manor Garden, Smallhythe and Sissinghurst. Many thanks to Georgie & Bill, excellent hosts, who have thought of everything and looked after us so well. We hope to return!
