Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Brilliant barn with excellent hosts
I booked the Barn at Green Farm for my best friend’s hen weekend. The main barn is spacious and the open plan living, kitchen and dining area was perfect for a large group. The barn is finished to a high standard throughout and the layout is perfect for lots of people - there are plenty of bathrooms and the Cowshed offers extra bedrooms and living space for a large group. Martin and the team at Green Farm were pleasant to deal with and extremely helpful from the beginning of the booking process throughout our stay. We appreciated their approachability and willingness to help out with any questions or issues throughout our stay. We used the hot tub on our first evening which is in the spa courtyard just across from the barn. It is a private setting and plastic glasses are supplied so you can enjoy a drink at the same time. It was great even on a slightly cold and drizzly evening. On the Saturday morning we took Martin up on his offer to show us round the farm and meet the animals. We were lucky enough to visit during lambing season and got to meet the new lambs and see them running around the fields. We also met and fed the cows and visited the chickens to collect eggs. Martin is extremely friendly and knowledgeable and we enjoyed hearing about how the farm is run, it’s sustainability efforts and the associated charity. The community garden looks like a great place for young people to learn about nature. Overall we had a fantastic weekend at the Barn at Green Farm and would highly recommend it to large groups looking for a weekend away in a country setting. The barn was equipped with everything we needed and Martin and the team were welcoming and accommodating hosts. We hope to be back in the future!

Idyllic and serene setting- wonderful hosts
We had a mother daughter weekend in Green Farm Barn recently . A very relaxing stay in the stunning Kent countryside which allowed us to unwind and immerse in nature instantly just 40 minutes away from London . Everything about the place brought peace and serenity to our stay. Rooms were very well equipped, spacious and the beds were super comfortable. We enjoyed the restorative yoga class in the morning . The lovely walk in the farm's grounds, meadows and woodlands with Mary-Ann and her 3 dogs was very relaxing and educative giving us insight on sustainable farming, the farm animals, nightingales etc . The spa treatments and sauna were excellent. The tasty dinner cooked by Martin and the discussions we had with both our hosts us made us feel at home. Also we really appreciated that they organised our walk to Wye Down Crown the next day and Martin kindly dropped us at Wye. A very memorable stay and we will definitely come back. MaryAnn and Martin are the most welcoming and helpful hosts. Highly recommend this Green Farm Barn and many thanks to MaryAnn and Martin for this memorable weekend.

Christmas at Green Farm Barn
Everything about this place is wonderful. The peace and tranquility of the location, the comforts in the barn, the friendliness of the owners and the added attraction of feeding the animals with the children. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your home!

Couldn't be bettered
We stayed at Green Farm Barn for a family celebration and could not have found a better place. The Barn along with the Cow Shed were superb and provided spacious and comfortable accommodation for all 14 of us. All the rooms were well equipped, and Martin,the owner, was very friendly and helpful. The adjacent spa was a lovely added bonus. The setting was idyllic with lots of local walk , the children especially loved seeing all the farm animals and exploring 'Fairyland'. Would definitely recommend.

Superb break
Along with nine friends we stayed for the weekend at the Barn for two friend's 40th birthdays. What an idyllic setting. The Barn itself has everything you could possibly need. It is comfortable, warm and the facilities are all brilliant. There is a great information folder, with all you need to know about the Barn and the surrounding area. We had lunch at the King's Head just a short walk away and it was lovely. The birthday boys both had a massage treat in the spa, and Helen was a very good therapist The hot tub is located in a secluded area near the spa and it was lovely, kept at a nice temperature. It was good to have an opportunity to meet some of the farm animals and they were all so friendly! What a lovely idea to have a community garden for many young people to come along and enjoy. I can highly recommend Green Farm Barn it is a little hidden gem. Thank you to our hosts Martin and MaryAnn.

A beautiful barn set in a great location with a fabulous spa on your doorstep
Great country walks and a pub a few minutes walk away. The spa is literally on your doorstep and the treatments were fantastic. Rooms were very spacious and the beds super comfortable. Martin and the staff at the spa were very welcoming and accommodating.

Group Stay at the Barn
Stayed at the barn for a pre-Xmas break. We were a party of 10, and had a wonderful time. We managed to get out for a few woodland walks and although we had planned to spend an evening in the hot tubs watching the 'stars', the lure of the log fire was too much. We ate in most of the weekend, but dud venture out to the pub for a Sunday lunch and that too was excellent. See you next year!
