The property and owners were brilliant. The cottage was immaculate and the facilities were amazing. Great location for local sights, stunning views and pubs/restaurants. We would definitely stay at The Milking Parlour again. Thank you. Mrs Jenny Latham - 8th January 2019
A big advantage with the property The Milking Parlour are the two bathrooms. Perfect for people travelling together like just good friends or as in my case siblings. The owner family was very helpful and open minded upon our special requirements. Highly recommended!Mrs Sonia Andersson - 19th November 2018
Time rushes away and this mail should have been sent to you a long time ago! We both enjoyed the time at your farm very, very much and would have loved to stay even longer in the beautiful property. But our plans were to meet with my son and his family in West Yorkshire and the program was tight. Your Milking Parlour is excellently equipped, nicely decorated and tastefully furnished. The entire interior is very harmonic. In my review I mentioned the advantage of having 2 bath rooms. Especially when friends or siblings are travelling together, but not automatically want to share the bath. We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New YearAndersson - 8th October 2018
Absolutely fabulous.Mrs Patricia Hallybone - 1st October 2018

We have had a wonderful week in the Milking Parlour. The Cottage is very comfortable and we felt very welcome. Nice and quiet, only the sounds of the countryside, the sounds from the cows and bellows of the sheep and the singing of the birds. The weather wasn't as expected one day, so we spent time doing a jig saw puzzle and had a lovely day. The other days we made some trips in Kent, It's a place we will go back to.Family Broeke, From Amsterdam - 4th May 2018

We have had a fabulous time here at The Milking Parlour with our two boys who are 8 & 10. The sweets and games were a lovely touch and very much appreciated along with all the other special touches that made our stay a home from home experience. We have had a wonderful time visiting many places, Sissinghurst, Canterbury and we left a couple of leaflets of our tours of Kent.
