“Cosy, warm, comfortable, fantastic bed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2012

We (my husband and 6 year old son and myself) stayed here for 1 night in July en route from ferry to elsewhere. We all wished it could have been longer and didn't want to leave. The room was spotlessly clean, very thoughtfully decked out and extremely comfortable with a super sized king bed which was delicious in every way and a comfy couch too.

It is a farmstay B&B and while we were there something was going on with the lambs so we got to pat one, the first time my son has touched a lamb ever which was really special.

My only complaint, and this is common to every B&B I have stayed in I believe, is the curtains were too light and so the room was light from far too early. Black out curtains would be hugely appreciated and improve sleep during the long nights and early mornings of an english summer!

Breakfast was delicious and served in Carol's beautiful dining room in their lovely house.

We loved it and will stay again for longer when next in the area.

Great farmhouse medieval property off the beaten track but handy for Ashford International - we were made to feel very welcome and the rooms were furnished to a very high standard at a reasonable rate - great alternative to a hotel stay with quiet charm and character. Many thanks

We stayed at Elmstead Court Farmhouse in August 2011 and had a wonderful couple of nights. The room was clean, spacious and quiet. The breakfast was lovely with lots of choice. A delightful place to stay.

It has already been quite a while ago (in 2008, however I had to mark a date below, so I chose March 2011) that we stayed at Elmsted Court Farmhouse and it was only a stopover on our way to Cornwall. We have only the best memories of this stay - spacious, clean rooms, very child-friendly, with absolutely great breakfast and very nice hosts! We can highly recommend it, I am sure: also for a longer stay! I have just done so to friends of ours and then it came to my mind that I could leave a good rating here :-)

This was our third visit to Elmsted Court and it seems to get better and better every year.

Andy and Carol who run the farm are always very welcoming and our children just LOVE the fact that Andy shows them round the sheep barns (where this year they actually saw two lambs being born).

Great breakfast and some lovely restaurants nearby for a great evening meal.

Would really recommend this to any family wanting a quick and easy trip out of London for a weekend "in the countryside"

Great stay in Elmsted, not far from some beautiful golf courses!
Spacious rooms and nice bathrooms; when you need two bedrooms, you have the whole floor! Very tasteful breakfast.
Good place to eat is Five Bells, very cosy and good food.

Room Tip: Only two rooms available

We stayed for seven days and the location was great for Canterbury and Dover. Carol, Andy and family were very welcoming. The room was great; a good size, sofa was a nice touch and the small fridge was handy. The bathroom was of a very high standard, great shower but a bit of a narrow door into the bathroom though! The bed was super comfy if a bit soft for us. Some nice personal touches lifted it above the average. Breakfast choice was superb, fresh fruit and the cooked breakfast were scrummy. Attention to detail throughout the accomodation was excellent. The rural location is very peaceful although the access roads are narrow and steep. The cockeral in the morning lets you know you are staying on a farm! We loved Thumper the rabbit and meeting the sheep dogs. We had good meals at several local pubs - our favorite was the Tiger at Stowting. We would highly recommend Elmsted Court Farm if you are looking for a high quality B&B set in beautiful countryside.
