“Lovely relaxing place, perfect for the whole family”
Reviewed 19 November 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We had a wonderful stay when our house was being redecorated. It provided everything we needed for us and the kids. Very quiet, relaxing location but still close to Sevenoaks to take kids to school. The garden is great for kids, with slides, wendy houses, zip wire, a tree house and more. Children enjoyed feeding ponies, chicken and ducks were literally on our doorstep. There are walking routes starting right from the farm. The owners are lovely. Would highly recommend.

Thank you for your kind review. We are delighted you had a good stay with us while your redecoration project was underway. We do tend to get a number of guests staying with us as they do building work or are between houses. Thank you for being such lovely guests.

“A Great Place to Stay”
Reviewed 18 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The vase of beautiful yellow roses which greeted us on entering Apple Barn Cottage was symbolic of our stay. With beautiful views of the surrounding countryside, the cottage itself is pleasing to the eye and provided a very comfortable home for us during our three week stay. To cap it off Katie and Andrew are considerate and obliging hosts. Next time we visit Kent we will return to Apple Barn Cottage.

“A refreshing retreat for weary nomads”
Reviewed 14 August 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We stayed here for 6 glorious months when we needed a bolt hole after a difficult overseas posting. Just perfect for the two of us - with a large enough living space to cater for a dozen of the family when they descended on us for Christmas and Easter and to host our daughter's Hen Party.
Katie and Andy have created a beautiful, clean, well-appointed cottage in fantastic surroundings. Quiet enough for oldies like us to enjoy a peaceful cuppa gazing at the views, but a perfect playground for our grandchildren and other little friends when they visited. The Tanswell family are wonderful hosts - friendly, approachable and available. You feel part of their extended community when you live there and they're happy to help out with any problems.
The cottage is in a wonderful location - stunning views, wonderful walks to country pubs with good food and plenty to do a short drive away in the surrounding area.
Thanks for opening your home and hearts to weary nomads.

“A wonderful retreat”
Reviewed 17 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Little Apple Barn was a delight. It was very clean with everything included for a very comfortable & peaceful holiday. Lots of little extra delights provided like Roses on the table, milk & butter in the fridge & other foodie delights. It was in an excellent location for exploring this beautiful part of Kent. Katie & Andrew provided a very good guide on places to eat, visit & where to do any shopping. We would certainly recommend our friends & family to stay in this lovely accommodation.

“A lovely stay at Hamptons Farm in Kent”
Reviewed 20 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a lovely time and stayed in the Little Apple Barn Cottage. Andy and Katie the owners were very welcoming and friendly. The cottage itself was well maintained, modern, clean and had all the utilities you need for a relaxing holiday. The views from outside the cottage were super. We brought our twins who are nearly 3 years old and they had a great time there playing on the toy cars, trampolines, swings and in the little play house. There was enough to keep them occupied for hours. In the cottage there was a this welcome pack that was really useful in deciding on other things to do outside Hamptons Farm. Overall a super holiday and we would certainly visit again.
