We stayed here in August 2010, and were really impressed. We have a three year old son, and like many families, we don't relish the traditional "family room" which squeezes the entire family into one room, forcing Mum and Dad to retire early (and quietly) so that their offspring can get some sleep!
Tom's Room at Brenley Farm got round that beautifully - it's actually two very good sized interconnecting rooms. The children's room has lego, brio, books, a DVD player and DVDs - everything they could need. The adults room is large and bright, with all mod-cons and quality toiletries. Outside there's a lovely garden with play area, and plenty of dogs/cats/chickens/horses to make friends with. My only grumble (and it is a slight one) is with the showers, which are very low pressure and tend to dribble on you unpleasantly. I've deducted a star for that!
The breakfasts are amazing - home produced fruits and fruit juices, eggs fresh from the chickens and so on. Delicious.
All in all, a real find, and we will be staying here again next year - if Maggie will have us!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Brenley, a working farm close to Canterbury and Faversham is tucked away amidst orchards and hop gardens, paddocks and duck pond, yet with easy access to the many attractions of Kent. We offer spacious rooms and a warm welcome, with tea and home made cakes at our elegant Georgian family farmhouse, giving you the perfect start to a country house short break, visiting friends or on business. Delicious and varied breakfasts using home grown and local, seasonal produce. Also available is our group accommodation bunkhouse barn The Old Stables. This is very simply hostel style in a converted 17th century stable building. It has it'sown rustic charm, but luxury it's not! ... more less
