Excellent Weekend
great property in the Weald of Kent, kept in excellent order, and perfectly set in peaceful Benenden. Sophie I’d a great host who had thought of everything, and really takes care to ensure a great stay. We’d visit again and recommend.

Great cottage in a great location
My husband and I spent a weekend at this property with our puppy. We had a great stay! Sophie was very responsive with messages and had a cake waiting on check-in. The hosts were also helpful with tips on what to do, where to eat - which we very much appreciated. The cottage is in great condition and has all the necessary amenities. It’s a great location to explore the national trust properties close by and close to the beautiful Bedgebury forests. Highly recommended! One thing to mention is that, it isn’t obvious from the listing that the cottage is just off the main house where the hosts live. The cottage has a separate entrance, but the garden is part of the main garden without a fence which is not ideal if you want to let your dog out without a lead as there are hens / chickens free in the garden. It didn’t make much of a difference to us.

Beautiful short break in East Sussex
We had a lovely break for a couple of days staying at the property. The host, Sophie, and her family made us very welcome and baked us a cake on arrival (which was delicious). The barn was very comfortable with everything we needed, and the gardens very beautiful. The location is great - we visited Rye, Camber and Bodiam Castle, and the local village pub does great food. All and all a memorable stay.

Lovely relaxing stay
Property was exactly as described. Extremely clean and inviting. Lovely patio area outside to use, which we did, as the weather so hot. Owners very nice and helpful. Couldn’t fault anything and would certainly return.
