I was passing through Hawkhurst during a few days walking and had seen this B&B on various sites. Emailed Chris and booked the single room for 1 night. I arrived at about 7pm, the directions that were sent along with the confirmation email were accurate and I liked that it was hand written, instead of just having a link to... More

It was a pleasure and a privilege to be made so welcome in Chris and Jacqueline's home. (By Bow the springer too!)They pay great attention to detail and everything was excellent from the lovely comfortable room overlooking the pretty garden to the delicious breakfasts. They helped to make our holiday enjoyable and relaxing. Hawkhurst is an ideal centre from which... More

I visited Kent for the first time last month and found Hawkhurst an ideal base for sorties to the many, many places of interest in that county and East Sussex. The Summerhill B&B proved to be an added bonus with very attentive hosts, Chris, Jacquline and Bow, (the last being a lovely Springer Spaniel), a charming and very comfortable house... More

We can highly reccomend this lovely B&B although it is a bit difficult to locate. Chris and Jacqueline made us very welcome (fab homemade cake) with a nice cuppa. The room was lovely, airy, bright and extremely well furnished. The beds are comfortable and we were woken by the morning chorus and the sunshine streaming in. Breakfast was a real... More

Chris and Jacqueline provided a very warm welcome on our arrival. The room was large with en-suite and a nice powerful shower. The facilities in the room were well thought out, including fresh milk with tea/coffee (not sachets), fresh cooked biscuits, and all the usual extras (TV/toiletries etc). The bed was firm with nice pillows. The room was warm, airy... More

I booked the twin beds' room for one for one week because I had some research to do in the Kent/East Sussex area. Location: The central location made it easy to commute to the vineyards (for work) and the National Trust castles and gardens (for leisure). I like how Hawkhurst has a good selection of eateries and supermarkets for quick... More

With friends, booked both the double and twin bedrooms which overlook the lovely garden. Rooms very pleasant and bed extremely comfortable. Chris and Jacqueline served delicious tea and cake in the conservatory on arrival and their suggestion for dinner at the Black Pig pub was a good choice. They bought in advance some special foods for one of our party... More

My partner stayed here one night while we attended an event at Bedgebury. Mr and Mrs Schalburg could not have been nicer or more helpful. Our room was nice and the bed and pillows were exceptionally comfortable. I have a bad back and had a great nights sleep! We overlooked their beautiful garden and it was a lovely quiet calm... More
