We stayed at The Orchard for a wedding at Cooling Castle nearby. The welcome from Kevin and Sue was lovely and it's a lovely little property. Only disappointment was that the shower was freezing cold but we were in such a rush in the morning to get to the wedding we didn't have time to let them know. Would definitely... More

We booked into the Orchard B&B as we were attending a wedding at Cooling Castle Barn. The owners Kevin and Sue were the most welcoming hosts I've ever come across, the minute we arrived we were offered refreshments. The accommodation is very clean, unfussy and comfortable. Guests have the use of a kitchen well stocked with necessities, therefore the rooms... More

Despite not being in or near an orchard, nor anything like the normal idea of a cottage this is a very good bnb and excellent value. Welcoming hosts, big room with really super large and comfy bed, lovely en suite with extra toiletries and great towels. Very good breakfast. We were initially nervous about the road noise but the area... More

Nothing too much trouble even dropping us off and picking us up from venue for a very small fee. All rooms spacious and well equipped . Nicely furnished with quality beds and linen. All rooms...

We were also weddng guests (and bridesmaid) at Cooling Castle Barn; thought this sounded nicer than a hotel in Rochester. Everything brilliantly explained by Kevin, very clear, nothing too much bother, breakfast excellent. Would definitely reccomend to anyone visiting the area.

What a welcome, Thank you to Kevin & Sue for explaining everything and showing us around. Our room was excellent, Breakfast great and thank you greatly for your taxi services to Hoo. If Carlsberg did B&B’s, this is what it would look like.
