Stayed Monday to Friday in Summer for seven weeks due to work. Bed and Breakfast only. A gorgeous, idyllic setting, very peaceful but conveniently situated next to County Showground and ideal for access to Maidstone/M20 and the rest of Kent accordingly. Lovely family who own the coach house and live on site so easy to get hold of someone if... More

Our Mini Car Club of NSW booked the whole Bed and Breakfast for 6 nights from the end of July till August. And all I can say is the rooms where clean, tidy and comfy. The breakfast was great, the WiFi was excellent and I speak for the other 9 people who travelled with us. The B&B is close to... More

Ideally situated if you are working or visiting Maidstone area. Peace and quiet in beautiful tranquil surroundings. Stayed in same ground floor room as my first visit in 2013. Wifi signal good but mobile signal varies depending on network. Excellent breakfast with plenty of choice. I would highly recommend this establishment.

We stayed three nights. On the positive side, the B&B was very clean and the garden was quite lovely. The breakfast was forgettable - a bar with several cereals, coffee, yoghurt, bread and toaster, but tea was self-serve in bags, jams were cheap ones in little plastic containers of the sort found in diners, and muffins were commercial and still...

Thank you for your email. We feel a little annoyed by this couple. In the UK our rooms are not massive compared to big flash , modern hotels. It is in a converted Coachhouse in the Kent countryside and it is designed to be homely and space is at a premium. This couple from USA are obviously use to large... More

A lovely house with a beautiful garden. Room was spacious, clean and the bed was very comfortable. Owners very friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were fantastic. The place is a bit isolated so you will need to drive to go out for dinner etc especially as the local cabs are very expensive. Lovely place to stay and would recommend... More

Room, staff and breakfast was excellent. We asked the lady to put our wine in the fridge and she was generally very helpful. Our only criticism is that to actually find a place to eat we had to cross an extremely busy dual highway to get to Detling. It took us 5 minutes to get across this road, queuing behind... More

This is an excellent and friendly B&B in beautiful surroundings. We stayed for one night as we had tickets to see Jools Holland at Maidstone studios. The owner gave us all of the information we needed to find where we were going and where we could eat near the studio beforehand. The B&B itself is lovely and clean and provides... More

The down side, four year advanced booking for the Kent shows. Slots are limited, so had to decamp on occasions to other places :-( On business...nice to get back to something like home, I live in the countryside up north. Breakfast...and hey hotels provide continental, not a fry up. The price of a full English makes your eyes water, this... More
