I stayed at Iffin Farmhouse for a long weekend visiting my son in Canterbury - having chosen it based on its close proximity. It turned out to be an excellent choice - the bedroom was huge but cosy with beautiful views and the bathroom was sparkling clean, modern and fresh with lots of lovely toiletries to try! The staff were all very friendly and extremely helpful and welcoming. And of course the location in a quiet country lane just minutes from the centre of Canterbury was the icing on the cake. I will definitely be staying here again!

This lovely b&b has to be the best bet if you are want to stay near Canterbury. Just 5 mins in the car or taxi, the Cathedral is visible from the road at the end of the drive. The rooms are lovely and Sarah and her girls provide everything to make the stay something to which you will want to return.

We came to stay at Iffin on the night of my Graduation which was also one of the coldest nights of the year and so glad it was Iffin we chose! The apartment was spacious, modern, well set out WARM, cosy and has all information you need and the privacy and intimacy of a hotel room but 3 times the size (and there were two home baked cupcakes waiting for us in the kitchen when we arrived!)! The owners are lovely and give a mobile number for easy and quick communication should you need it, and the next morning the full english breakfast was lovely - fresh, ALL homegrown foods with all things you could ask for breakfast, a lovely family feel in a large beautiful farmhouse!

My family (2 adults, 2 kids and dog!) were after a couple of nights break away to recharge our batteries and have some quality time together - our break at Iffin Farmhouse met our needs superbly and we had the most wonderful mini-break!
The accommodation was beautiful - very well spec'd, beautiful setting, superbly placed for visiting local sites, owners wonderfully welcoming aswell as being able to whip up a perfect breakfast!!!
I would recommend anyone looking for any of the above pay a visit - you'll have a truly memorable break!

We recently had two nights at Iffin Farm and it certainly lived up to all the previous reviews we had read. Our room was clean, large and warm ( we chose two cold days to visit!) We had a lovely evening meal on our first night and spent over two hours talking to other guests which was a great start.
There was plenty of choice for breakfast which was very well cooked.
It was so good to be out in the country away from all the bustle of city life.

We needed somewhere to stay for a night and picked this as it was close to the wedding reception. However, I would be tempted to come back to Canterbury just to stay here again!
A truly delightful spot with large (child friendly) gardens and ponies in the paddock.
We stayed in the farmhouse itself (there is also a newly constructed barn and a secluded lodge) which is more like a manor house. Huge bedroom with en suite and a large dining room for all the guests. All the staff were super friendly and welcoming.

Room Tip: Our room in the main house had a large jacuzzi bath but, strangely no shower!
