Our visit to Birling House was to attend and celebrate our son's wedding. Bob the owner was extremely helpful during the booking process and throughout our weekend stay. The accommodation is of a high standard, very clean and comfortable. We would have no hesitation in recommending this B&B whatever your reason for visiting Kent.

It is somewhat weird to write a review of the place you can't find anything to complain about. Birling house is a gem. I stayed there two nights while visiting Paddock Wood for work purposes. I very much liked everything what I encountered. The house itself is nice. Rooms are comfortable with the private bathroom. Service is just plain outstanding!... More
