Sixteenth-century Grade 2 listed farmhouse a mile from the centre of Brenchley village, at the end of a quiet lane and surrounded by apple orchards. Rooms sympathetically modernised with every luxury you would find in a hotel, including wifi, flat screen TV with DVD and ample parking. Log fire burning in the colder months. Good pubs nearby for an evening meal.The ideal setting for a peaceful and relaxing holiday, near several National Trust gardens and castles nearby but still within easy reach of Tunbridge Wells (8 miles), the South Coast (one hour) and London by train in 45 minutes Paddock Wood Station 3 miles). Fresh local produce used where possible. Homemade marmalade and jams.

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.

We came across this beautiful bed and breakfast whilst searching for somewhere to stay when attending a family christening in the village of Brenchley. The Willowpit bedroom on the ground floor was a haven of peace and serenity with windows looking out into the pretty wild flower garden and pond, framed with rustic fencing and alive with the sounds of the birds and bees enjoying the abundance of nature! Inside our room was a huge bed, so inviting to sink into for great nights sleep after the busy-ness of our celebrations. Tea and coffee, fresh fruit, biscuits and chocolates on the guest tray and everything you could possibly need for a worry free visit in both the bedroom and bathroom - even a spare toothbrush should you forget your own! Breakfast was beautifully presented and very tasty with locally sourced ingredients, fabulous home made jams and marmalades and all served by super friendly and welcoming hosts! We left feeling full up on fresh food, fresh air and fully relaxed, thank you so much Simon and Sandie for allowing us to share your perfect corner on planet earth, we will be back! Oh, and thank you so much for the homemade lemon marmalade - I know how good that is going to be!

We stayed two nights in this excellent B&B and had a really good experience. The bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious and spotless and the beds were incredibly comfortable. There are a lot of nice, personal finishing touches in the beautiful rooms and Simon and Sandy are very thoughtful hosts. Staying there was a real pleasure.
Breakfast was absolutely delicious, with lots of choice and plenty of gluten free options.
We cannot recommend this B&B highly enough.

A wonderful place to stay in a very pretty and peaceful area of the Kentish Weald.
We enjoyed everything about historic Hononton cottage. The low ceilings and beams,comfy bed with lovely soft bed linen it all added to a comfortable nights sleep.

Simon & Sandy we’re perfect hosts, breakfast was excellent with homemade preserves and local ingredients.
All was perfectly clean. Would definitely recommend as a little gem in the countryside.

This was our first return visit to this beautiful 16th century cottage since the pandemic, and we thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay last week as much as we did the first time round. We were welcomed with tea & biscuits by Simon and each morning he produced a delicious cooked-to-order breakfast.
Our bedroom (The Furnace Room) was very comfortable and had a large bed with a generous sized en-suite bathroom. Simon's attention to detail was second to none and we will certainly recommend Hononton Cottage to family/friends who maybe planning to visit Kent.

Quite, peaceful, away from it all down a country lane, comfortable room, large bathroom with flurry white towels, spotless clean, feels like home from home. Wonderful breakfast pick and choose what you would like and plenty of it. Nothing was to much trouble. Simon and Sandie were perfect hosts. Good parking, garden to sit in, lots of walking from Hononton cottage. Local pubs are well worth a visit they have local history and Good food.

This is a gem of a house! Beautiful setting, the house is full of history and is in impeccable order. I was in the ground floor room with lovely comfortable bed and bedding.
Simon, the host was really helpful and nothing was too much trouble.
Breakfast included home made jams from the local fruit farm - delicious.
I was here on my own attending a ceramics course just down the road, so didn’t have much time to explore the locality. Hoping to be back soon.

We have just had a most enjoyable stay at Honoton Cottage. The cottage is beautiful and immaculately clean. Much thought has gone into the comfort of guests. We stayed in the Willowpit room which was spacious with a very comfortable bed. The surroundings are so pretty and peaceful. The breakfast was first class and Simon was the perfect host. We would certainly not hesitate to stay again.

Me and my fiancee stayed here in December for my birthday weekend. The hospitality from Simon and Sandie was superb, the breakfasts lovely, the room was everything we could ask for. Can recommend the Castle Inn for dinner, the steak was probably the best we have had and Simon picked us up which was very kind of him. On the saturday we ate at the Wheelwrights Arms which we would also recommend, the food and staff were top-notch.
We also took home some of Simon's jams and gave some as Xmas presents which went down very well. We would love to visit again in the warmer months as the weather was not great, but the roaring fire and comfortable bed kept us warm.

We stayed over the Easter Weekend in the Willowpit Garden Room. The room was very comfortable and very well furnished with a comfortable bed.
The location of Hononton Cottage is superb - surrounded by an apple orchard and a vineyard. The peace and quiet combined with a comfortable bed made for a very restful nights sleep.
Simon and Sandy were excellent hosts: warm, welcoming and very helpful.

The breakfast that was served every morning was freshly prepared and very tasty.
All in all, we had a very pleasant weekend and will be back.
