“Our home away from home”
Reviewed 19 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We are an Australian family with small children that have stayed consecutive years at this home because we love it. Our kids can't wait to roam the extensive gardens and we find that the house very comfortable and able to accommodate quite a few of us. We had a number of lunches for my extended family and there is no better place to be than in the garden on a summers day. It's a perfect base to explore Kent and Sussex and the owners Jenny and Phillip are lovely to deal with. Highly recommended

“Barnfield House wraps its arms around you with its warmth, elegance & comfort”
Reviewed 21 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We loved the perfect privacy of the house & gardens. The iconic English view across the rich green fields to the Norman church tower was a delight to behold from the expansive sundeck. We very much appreciated the huge windows - with either large panoramic views or views out to the garden. This spacious house was the perfect venue to have friends & family stay over for a night or two after celebrating my husbands 70th birthday. So many intimate areas to chat and to spread out. And there was tons of parking for all the cars. Barnfield House doesn't feel like a rental house. It feels like a real home complete with family photos & treasures, and all the conveniences that you could wish for. Thanks Philip & Jenny for allowing us to share your home. It was a lovely finale to our trip to England & it was so easy to get to Heathrow for our return flight home to Australia.

“Not like a rental house”
Reviewed 21 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Barnfield House is superbly appointed with views over the Kent countryside and large grounds. The house is spacious and comfortable with the owners' beautiful oriental furniture and some interesting artwork. It really does have a cook's kitchen (complete with some excellent cookery books) and is a delightful place to stay.

“A perfect location for a family get together”
Reviewed 14 April 2013 for a stay in June 2012

We stayed at Barnfield House for 2 weeks in June 2012. It is spacious and accomodates 10 people comfortably, with plenty of room indoors for eating, socialising and general living - and plenty of room outdoors for the more energetically minded. The house is very well equipped and is full delightful details - such as books, ornaments and memorabilia from the owners' extensive travels. It is well located, within walking distance of the local village and its beckoning pubs; and also well positioned for visiting the lovely Kent countryside and its various tourist attractions. It was the perfect choice for our family get together.
