Stunning timber framed farmhouse of immense historic interest in area of outstanding natural beauty. Well positioned for all Kent has to offer, from National Trust gardens to designer outlets, coastline to Kent Downs. Local produce used with homemade jams and bread. Large Inglenook fireplaces. A great place to escape.

Had a gorgeous overnight stay. Such a lovely welcome from Lily who was a delightful host. Would definitely recommend everything about this farmhouse. The views from the double aspect bedroom were so peaceful and had the best sleep ever, followed by a yummy breakfast 😋😍

Nestled at the foot of the North Downs, along a narrow, steep-sided lane that's so typical of this part of Kent, Bulltown Farmhouse is a very special place to stay. Our en suite room was spacious, newly decorated and tastefully furnished. It was double aspect, with views over the lovely cottage gardens and countryside beyond. The floor sloped as is often the case in ancient half-timbered properties and just added to the charm. There's even a lounge for guests, with inglenook fireplace, wood burner and TV. We were made very welcome by our host, Lilly, who each morning cooked us an excellent breakfast to set us up for the day. The only downside was that we were there for only 3 days!

Had such a lovely overnight stay at The Bulltown Farmhouse. It's perfectly situated for walks through the North Downs. We did a walk through Wye, which was lovely. We were welcomed by Charmaine who showed us the lounge area, dining area and then to our room. It was truly stunning, full of character. We were also greeted by the lovely 2 cats, Fraser and Sid! Charmaine recommended a couple of places to eat for dinner, we ended up at The Tiger Inn, which was about an 8 minute drive. Really lovely 1700s pub, full of charm, with very nice food. Back at the Farmhouse, we were able to sit in the lounge area, with it's warm open fire and lots of sofas. The room was well equipped, tea & coffee making facilities, toiletries etc. Very clean, great views. Breakfast was plenty of choice, I had berries and yoghurt, followed by full English breakfast, using locally sourced produce, perfect. All in all, a perfect stay, one which I hope to repeat. I cannot recommend this place highly enough, and a special thank you to Charmaine, who really looked after us 😊

We returned to the Bulltown again and couldn’t wait for it to come around. Everything was top notch as always. Beautiful house, delicious breakfast, great service from lovely lovely family. The only bad things is that you have to go home eventually! Have recommended it to many others and we’ll return again as soon as we can. Highly recommended. (Also, couldn’t disagree with the previous review any more! It’s a beautiful, quirky, old property full of charm and character whilst being spotless and supplied with everything you need and more. We have stayed with and without children and it’s delightful in every way, every time.)

Having stayed at this property recently, I can’t believe all the fantastic reports written about this place here! Have the owners changed over recently? To begin with – as requested on the website – we sent them an email to let them know the time we expected to arrive so that they didn’t have to wait around unnecessarily, but we received no reply. (This was unusual because the other three B&Bs we stayed at during our trip all responded to our emails.) On arrival the woman that met us was reserved, business-like and we had the impression that we were inconveniencing her. She very briefly showed us to our room and said she would leave out a key for us – for the front door. There is NO possibility to lock your room door when you go out for the day! As expected with this period building, there were wooden beams and not every wall was as straight as in a new-build, yet it was quite spacious. It was charming to look at. On closer inspection, however, the floor for example was not level which meant the bed was on an incline. I would have expected something to have been put underneath it to make it more horizontal so that you don’t roll over to one side or into your partner when you lay on it. Further, there was NO TV in the room but only in a guest lounge for all guest to squabble over what to watch (can you really believe that in the 21st century?). It wasn’t specifically stated on the website that there would be a TV, however, I did expect this modern convenience for a room that is billed at £90 a night. The breakfast was a complete disappointment. The full English we tried on our first morning, was not up to expectations. It was very average fare and not special at all – except for maybe the locally sourced apple juice. On the second morning we chose a more simple scrambled egg on toast. Sadly, we were disappointed again. Not only was the scrambled egg made with a powder mixture but also done in the microwave so that it was still mostly liquid when we got it. I have never seen anything quite like it – not even in an army cookhouse (it’s at least solid there). The marmalade for some toast (only white bread available – no choice) was either yellow or red with little or no smell or taste. On request there was some honey available though. After three previous stops at different B&Bs, I think we’re in a position to compare breakfasts and this was simply not good at all. On our second evening there, we came back to no electrical power in our room. We were in darkness, the wall sockets were without power too, so I couldn’t even charge my phone. When we challenged the owner about it the next morning, she merely said something about it being ‘romantic’. It was an inconvenience, actually. To sum up, this is definitely the right place to stay if you like the experience of living in the fifteenth century with a lopsided bed, ordinary to terrible food and the occasional power cut. For us this stay was definitely NOT value for money!

I'm very sorry that you didnt enjoy your experiance with us but if I remember correctly you never mentioned once any problems or complaints at the time and only vaguely mentioned a problem when your daughter was sick all over my bedding and not that the beds were uneven so that we could have corrected them . When you book into a 15th Century Farmhouse you would expect wooden beams, uneven floors and uneven walls, may I suggest you book more modern accomodation in future. As for TVs, in all my time in the business never once has anyone squabbled over a programme but have enjoyed meeting other Guests. We want our Guests to have peace and quiet and get away, enjoy the lounge and not be kept up by other Guests in the middle of the night with TVS on far too loud. The fact we had a local powercut is out of my hands and we have torches in the room and provide lanterns if needed and as for the breakfasts, did you miss the fact that I have chickens and ducks and that you daughter was in the paddock with them running around freely and that there is fresh fruit and cereal, yogurts and juices. Perhaps as you didnt like staying here you should have checked out early as we like our Guests to enjoy the Farmhouse
