My mother and i were made welcome to the highest degree, we were looked after (especially my elderly mother) and felt more like family members. What incredible hospitality - Sue was absolutely lovely.

very pleasantly surprised by this quaint B&B. B&B really doesn'y describe the farmhouse though. You do not feel like you are staying in a B&B; it feels so more private. The house is nice and the staff is wonderful all around. We stayed two nights and loved it.

This is a hidden gem. Set in a beautiful English manor house with fabulous decor. I've stayed in much more expensive hotels and not had a room as stunning as the one we had. Warm reception from sue on arrival and she plied us with tea and cake. Breakfast was delicious - great selection including fresh fruits and a cooked... More

We were two couples, staying two nights, and except for some mishap in finding the place (for your reference take the road to the Castle, just go the left at the car park for the Farmhouse) everything was quite grand. The rooms are comfortable, with good bathrooms, and the breakfasts were made to order and (as much or little as... More

Our group spent 2 lovely nights at Sissinghurst Castle Farmhouse. Sue Thompson operates a first class bed & breakfast. Rooms were comfortable, breakfast was phenomenal, and the setting was superb. She and her husband, Fraser, are great fun. He is managing director of the local vineyard. Breakfast was served by the lovely Jill who never stops working to make your... More

B&B doesn't do justice to this lovely house, next to Sissinghurst Castle. A relaxed atmosphere and a great welcome from Sue and Ruby, the dog, ensure you make the most of staying in such a comfortable home, with traces of Arts & Crafts everywhere. Here, Vita Sackville-West lived, and books by her and by the Nicholsons, abound. The rooms are... More

Although we are long standing NT members, this was the first time we had stayed in any of the B&B properties, and this one has the obvious advantage of being adjacent to the gardens, with many other NT properties and other attractions in the area within easy travelling distance. This was a last minute/spur of the moment booking for a... More

Sue is a great host. We received a warm welcome to this fantastic B and B. Our twin room was elegant and really comfortable with all we might need. Excellent shower and good supply of fluffy towels. Great beds with smart linen. The breakfast was excellent with proper toast, great porridge and a good choice of cooked dishes with superior,... More

We have just had the most wonderful stay at the Farmhouse, Sue could not have been more helpful from storing our bikes to arranging restaurants and taxi bookings. The rooms are bright and clean with lovely views of the the tower or grounds. Would definitely love to stay again.
