Reviewed 23 August 2014

A lovely couple of nights at Sharon & Laurie's refurbished B & B. Sharon's attention to detail is unsurpassed, with many surprising little extras. Nothing was too much trouble and special requests were on hand before you could turn round! Sharon's passion for her B & B is evident and will always be a success. We will no doubt be back as we have relatives in the area.
Thank you, Sharon, for making our stay with you such a friendly and comfortable experience.

We had another wonderful stay at the White House in Birchington. Sharon was so hospitable and went out of her way to ensure all ran smoothly. The breakfast was amazing and the rooms very comfortable and clean. Sharon was very kind to our young daughter and took her round the lovely garden, explaining about all the flowers, which all add to the lovely atmosphere of this excellent bed and breakfast.

Thank you Sharon!

My review echoes most of those on here already. This is a lovely house with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Sharon was always helpful and accommodating without being over-powering. The room we stayed in (Hastings) was very comfortable and the balcony overlooking the back garden was a delight. Breakfast was excellent on both days we were there. I have already recommended this place to friends and family. Thank you, Sharon, and well done!

Room Tip: There are only two rooms (I think). We saw both. They are both well appointed and the only differe...

We have just returned from a four night stay at this fantastic, friend and very reasonably priced

B&B. We were made so welcome by the owner, Sharon and nothing was too much trouble for her, we were treated as guests in her home rather than visitors to a B&B. Our room 'Poirot' was so tastefully decorated with a massive bed and en suite shower . Breakfast was fresh, plentiful and varied with locally sourced produce where possible, one sunny morning we sat outside rather than in the dining room. It is only a short walk to the beach one way and into Birchington the other. It is impossible to fault any aspect of our stay! thank you Sharon

Having stayed in several types of lodging during my trip, I will say unequivocally that Sharon's White House was by far the best. Sharon keeps a lovely home in the village of Birchington, an easy walk to the high street (about 10 mins' walk) as well as to the seaside (3 mins walk in the opposite direction from the center of the village). My room was spacious, ultra clean and comfortable. The room looked over a lovely garden, with a fountain pond filled with real koi fish! Each day the coffee/tea caddy was replenished with a treat of biscuits or fruit. The breakfast felt absolutely decadent: poached pears, farm fresh eggs (I even met the egg man who delivers them!), locally sourced food and a dizzying array of home-made marmalade. Each night she offered a menu, which was a real nice touch. Sharon was personable, helpful and friendly. It was well worth the price I paid; in fact, it was the absolute best value of my whole trip! I can't recommend it highly enough.

Room Tip: There are only two rooms to choose from. "Poirot" and "Hastings." The latter is...

Great review! Thanks.
Yes our egg man has been around a while now. The eggs are from rescued chickens who respond with lovely eggs.
The garden has come on very well since you stayed and the fish are enjoying the sunny days.

I have just returned from a 4 night stay..I had a lovely time...The welcome, my room, the food and the ambience....were perfect and I had a Very comfortable and restful stay.
There were So many extras, to enhance my stay...fresh fruit each day, a wonderful varied breakfast, home prepared conserves and fruit....(including poached pear..one day).The interesting crockery and Art Deco style...was lovely...and thoughtfully used.All local produce was used as much as possible.

The lounge/dining room, was always available to relax in, eat a takeaway, wine glasses...and corkscrew....all available.
Fresh flowers from the garden...and the very relaxing garden....all added to my enjoyment.
I enjoyed the walks from the house, to the sea and nearby villages...and also to Quex Park, where there is a farm shop, craft shops, and of course the house and museum to explore.
Sharon and Laurie, were enthusiastic and knowledgable about the local area....and nothing was too much trouble..
I had car trouble....and Sharon kindly offered to fetch me....and made me refreshments when I got back....late..
I had a wonderful stay and am looking forward to returning.

You certainly covered a lot of ground when you were here.
Quex is good for all sorts of food in the farm shop, the Barn and their new and very nice cafe with lovely staff.
Hope to see you again next year.

Perfect B&B with a very comfortable room with a large bed. Breakfast was a delight - Sharon the owner will accommodate any dietary needs (my husband is dairy free) and you will not require any lunch! We are going back next year as it is excellent value for money, very clean and so friendly (without being overpowering).
