“The most amazing venue”
Reviewed 3 May 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Returned from the Bull on Monday, had planned a surprised weekend for my dads 60th for 17 of us nearly a year ago. All I can say is WOW and it was the perfect choice, from the start to finish Debbie & Rob were so so helpful and never at any point got fed up with all my messages, they were so lovely. Inside you will find everything you need and so much space, the downstairs sound proof room was the perfect place to belt out some karaoke :) Went for a lovely walk and done a little pub crawl on Saturday, then the rest of the time we made use of the beautiful House. All the rooms were so clean and tidy. Not one complaint from anyone, everyone was taken away by the bull and enjoyed every moment.

Thank you so much Debbie & Rob for making my dads birthday so perfect, we are already planning our trip to come back and I CANNOT wait!

“Beautiful country pun conversion to house”
Reviewed 30 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This is a beautifully restored house that used to be the main pub in the High Street of Brenchley, a quaint village in Kent. The decor is lovely, the bedding crisp and clean, the firuture tasteful and carpets looked new. A well stocked kitchen and fabulous media/party room in the basement. I highly recommend this for a large family and/or friends get together. The owners are great too.

“Fantastic hen weekend.”
Reviewed 13 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Attended the most amazing hen party here.On arrival I was in awe of this beautiful building, which externally retains all its original character. Once inside....wow, I was blown away, the immaculate, opulent interior was stunning. As we continued through the property is was immediately 'comfortable' it was like a home from home,sumptuous and finished to a very high standard.highly recommend for large groups,we took everything we needed and had a fab time.

“Great place to stay with friends”
Reviewed 28 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016
1
person found this review helpful

A group of us stay in a large house once a year and just eat, drink and go on walks, this was great for us and certainly one of the most luxurious places we have stayed in yet. There was plenty of room for us and for a few kids as well, the beds were massive. Having the en-suites was helpful as was the two TV rooms, it meant no more squabbles over what films to watch. Some great walks around there as well.

“60th Birthday Celebrations”
Reviewed 14 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Just returned from a wonderful weekend staying in this converted pub. Had an amazing weekend with a group of great friends. The accommodation is exceptional and no stone has been left unturned to ensure luxurious surroundings. The large table comfortably seated all 16 of us. Crockery, utensils and glasses are all plentiful even for such a large group. Self catering was a pleasure.
The owner is very helpful and responds to questions very efficiently. She is very knowledgeable about the local area and happy to give advice on local services.
We are already planning our next trip.

“What a transformation!”
Reviewed 16 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

I have lived in the area for years and visited this wonderful property while it was a pub. What can I say? The transformation has been incredible! We stayed here because my house is too small to accommodate our extended family and wanted to all be together without staying in a hotel for a 50th birthday.

We were amazed by the thought and design that has gone into this property and they have everything you would need from dog gates (to stop dogs and children going up stairs) to a kitchen anyone would want at home, to the most comfortable and luxurious beds I have slept in - ever!

We loved the ability to make dinners while having the cafe next door if we needed. This property fit all our needs and we can't thank you enough to make this weekend with family one to remember!

Thank you!
