We spent only one night at Hononton Cottage, unfortunately, but we had a wonderful time there! The cottage is very beautiful as well as its garden, the rooms are very nice and quiet, the breakfast was excellent with a very good choice including full Kentish cooked breakfast, local seasonal fruits and home made preserves and marmalade, good tea, coffee and...

How nice to hear from you and read your review. I try to treat my guests as friends as you are staying in my home not an impersonal hotel and it is so rewarding to read that you enjoyed your brief stay. Pashley Manor is a beautiful garden with the added touch of sculpture tastefully positioned throughout the garden. The... More

I have just arrived back from my stay here with my friends, without gushing I wanted to say how amazing the cottage, position and Simon was. Thoroughly relaxing and I hope to return in the not so distant future.

Simon is the perfect host of this delightful B&B. Set in a woodland type of environment, with a backdrop of an apple orchard this place is really homely and inviting. My wife and I spent 4 fantastic days here and the breakfast was superb. Simon assists with booking dinner at the various pubs, which we found great, especially the Poets... More

We found Hononton Cottage by using Trip Adviser and we weren't disappointed! It's a beautiful cottage and Simon could not have made us feel any more welcome. He kindly booked us into a pub (Wheelwright Arms in Matfield) for dinner (which was excellent). Breakfast was lovely and also catered for my husband, who is vegetarian. Everything was delicious especially the... More

We stayed at Hononton cottage for my husbands birthday weekend in April. We had a wonderful time..plenty to do near-by. The location is beautiful with views out to the apple orchards, and so peaceful. Our room was perfectly equipped with everything we could have needed, even down to the small tin of biscuits! The bed was very comfortable and the... More

It was nice to have you staying for Mark's birthday and I hope you can perhaps come back for the next one when you might stay longer. As you say there is plenty to do in the area with six National Trust properties within half an hours drive and well as several gardens. Stocks of my popular homemade jams are... More

If you want a sleek modern property in the heart of the action steer well clear! This is a proper old farmhouse surrounded by orchards in the beautiful garden if England. Country pubs, walks and National Trust houses close by. All the breakfast ingredients are sourced locally and are of the highest quality. Top up with friendly and attentive service... More

Excellent B&B. Very nice rooms, peaceful surroundings and a delicious Kentish breakfast. Our room was perfectly equipped. Tea, coffee, chocolate, apple juice and a good selection of toiletries were provided. Simon couldn't make us feel more welcome!

This is my umpteenth visit (well about 5th actually). The last time before this in 2007, but it's just as nice and just as comfortable. Simon was as welcoming and helpful as ever. I can recommend it wholeheartedly

Sixteenth-century Grade 2 listed farmhouse a mile from the centre of Brenchley village, at the end of a quiet lane and surrounded by apple orchards. Rooms sympathetically modernised with every luxury you would find in a hotel, including wifi, flat screen TV with DVD and ample parking. Log fire burning in the colder months. Good pubs nearby for an evening meal.The ideal setting for a peaceful and relaxing holiday, near several National Trust gardens and castles but still within easy reach of Tunbridge Wells (8 miles), the South Coast (one hour) and London by train in 45 minutes Paddock Wood Station 3 miles). Fresh local produce used where possible. Homemade marmalade and jams. ... more   less
