Saddlehurst Barn is an exquisite example of the very best in barn conversions - with a myriad of original beams, beautiful oak floors combined with contemporary furnishings and the ultimate in kitchen chic...from the glass and oak stairway to the Swedish woodburning stove... every room is a complete delight. The first floor living space has glorious views of the surrounding countryside too. The location, in the grounds of the owners' wonderful farmhouse - just outside the country town of Cranbrook and Sissinghurst village is also superb - giving great access to a host of attractions, with many National Trust properties, restaurants, pubs, shops and golf courses within a short drive. When you can't imagine it could get any better - there is also a swimming pool with a telescopic cover in the owners' garden which they are happy to share.  The pool is open from the beginning of May until the end of September and is subject to the weather.

A beautifully restored and very well equipped barn. Charming place to stay. Hosts are wonderful people.

Mrs Tiziana N,

We've had a wonderful week in this beautiful barn - thank you for a great experience. From day 1 on it felt like a real home, not like a holiday let. We enjoyed it and hope to come back soon!

Previous Customer,

We have had a fantastic 5 days in this beautiful barn. Thank you very much for your tips and hospitality and all the lovely goodies you left for us. The marmalade is delicious.

Saddlehurst Barn was excellent.

Previous Customer,

As it turns out 2/3 of Kent can understand French. We write our comments in Mollieres language. Vous êtes des hôtes bienveillants, prevenants et genereaux, vous avez partagé avec nous le meilleur du Kent et rendu notre séjour commence un rêve - Philip, souffrant, a même pris le temps de parler francais, plaisanter et aider (avec le freezer Miele!). Penny est une mine de bons conseils et duchesses, adorable. Merci aussi Kirsty qui nous a autant facilite le séjour!

Previous Customer,

Super little hidden gem. Owners were exceptionally friendly and helpful

Mr David W,

We've had a wonderful time in your beautiful barn. Thanks for the warm welcome and the generous provisions. We will be passing on our 'find' to other friends who want to explore this lovely part of Kent.

Neil & B,

Thank you for a lovely warm welcome and brilliant New Years getaway in your beautiful barn. We had equally wonderful days exploring Bodiam Castle, Sissinghurst and Camber sands all at penny's suggestion and local pubs as well as time spent in this fabulously equipped barn cooking and enjoying the wood burner. Thank you also for letting us gate crash at the end of your NYE celebrations! A very happy 2019 to you and your family.

Previous Customer,

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. One of the nicest places we've stayed as a family. Best wishes for 2019

Leonie, Percy, D,

Thanks to all for a great stay! What a well equipped and comfortable stay we had. Good weather, walks and pubs. Penny especially was a 'font' of local knowledge and pointed us in the right direction. We would love to come back again in the summer. Happy Christmas
