“Excellent venue for a family reunion”
Reviewed 22 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed at this spacious and well appointed large house for a week for a family birthday get together. With 5 bedrooms there is plenty of room. The house is beautifully situated with a large garden and views of rolling countryside from the deck, ideal for meals al fresco,weather permitting. Comfortably furnished and well appointed, this is an ideal location for any similar gathering. Highly recommended.

“A wonderful house with everything you need”
Reviewed 13 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Barnfield House is a large, beautiful, well-kept, family home. It doesn't feel like a holiday rental but rather a friend's house that you are using whilst they're away. It has everything you could need including a very well-equipped kitchen. The formal lounge is beautfiul, the kitchen and dining area are lovely and the views are something special. There are plenty of bathrooms ( a rare find!) and lots of room if you are in a large group. I cannot recommend this house enough. The owners are lovely and a pleasure to deal with which always makes things easier as well!

“All we needed for a fantastic long weekend”
Reviewed 17 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Our group of ten adults and two under-twos stayed at Barnfield House on the August bank holiday and had exactly the long weekend we hoped for.

Despite our arriving much later than arranged due to traffic, the house caretaker met us and was extremely friendly and helpful. A stressful journey was very soon forgotten in such relaxing surroundings; it did very much feel like home straight away - it's obvious the family house is used as such and is very loved.

It was big enough for a large group, and the toddlers had tons of fun exploring the space. The keen cooks of the group were impressed with the fully-equipped kitchen, which was spacious enough for us all to eat in.

The garden was large and beautiful and we enjoyed eating on the terrace.

All in all, we'd be very happy to repeat our visit to Barnfield House and came away happy and relaxed.

“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.
