Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A special place with a gracious host family. We stayed 5 nights and used it as our base while touring the surrounding area. We were tired travelers having arrived from the U.S. very early that morning. Carol offered a warm welcome and took great care of us. The beds were so comfortable, the room large and spotless, and the breakfast was just what we needed for a full day of touring. The beauty and peace of this special place was such a blessing!

The room was huge with a very large comfortable bed and we were treated to a cream tea by the hostess on arrival. It is a working farm but very quiet. Everything was spotless and the breakfast plentiful with real homemade preserves and artisan bread. The hostess does everything she can to make you feel welcome. We would stay again.

Our stay on our way from and to Dover/ Channelport. Carol and family are perfect hosts, a very beautiful peaceful location, comfortable rooms and a great breakfast (selfmade marmelade, local food). The rooms are very clean. Recommended, I am sure we will be back sometime. We love this old and authentic farm, a comfortable and relaxing late 14th century farmhouse in peaceful surroundings.

What a great B&B on a farm. Lambing was almost at the end, so lots of sheep. The calfs were in the shed waiting for nice weather to go in the fields. I loved it. I loved to talk with Carol about the farm. Every morning we had a great breakfast. The room was very comfortable. Everything you could think of. Spotless clean and well maintained. I can't think of anything to improve. This was our second stay, and I don't hesitate to say: we will come back!

My parents & I stayed for a night last Friday. We arrived & were greeted by Carol, who was very kind & gave us tea & cake upon arrival. The place is very well looked after, my room was clean & comfortable. The breakfast was very tasty too. We also got see the lambs in the barn nearby which was lovely also. It really was a pleasure to stay there. Charming place in the heart of the countryside.

We were greeted with super home made cake and a pot of tea, then our stay got even better. Our en suite room had everything we needed. The breakfast was delicious; every item on the table was traceable from field to fork. Sausages were made by a neighbour who kept pigs as a hobby and bought their feed. The apple juice was made on a local farm, The jam was made on the farm using a neighbor's raspberries, etc etc The building is an architectural gem, Grade 2 listed. Our bedroom was half 14th and half 16th century. It was a pleasure to eat in the family dining room surrounded by beautiful fittings and furniture. We had a wonderful stay.
