Great place with plenty to do in the area with amazing scenery. Alison the owner is a lovely lady and great to chat to! As soon as you arrived you feel more than welcome instantly and almost at home. For the price you pay its outstanding value for money and I'm sure they should probably consider reviewing their rates because... More

“You'll love North Downs Barn B&B, it’s better than any hotel you have stayed in”, said Tony, my long time political pal, when we were planning to go to travel down to Rochester to help in the by-election being held on the 20th November 2014 - he wasn’t wrong either. Tony had stayed there before when he had gone to... More

We stayed just one night as we were attending a friend's 50th birthday party nearby. The pictures on the website really don't do the place justice - we arrived as it was getting dark and the barn was lit up by candle-light so it looked really welcoming. The room we were given was huge with great views and it was... More

This is my second review of a wonderful B&B. This time I stayed in two of the other bedrooms and I was pleasantly surprised of the first class standard. Great beds, beautifully clean linen, TV, tea and coffee facilities in room. Great friendly welcome but left alone to feel at home. The lady remembers what you like. Breakfast summed up... More

I stayed over the late bank holiday weekend of May 2014 as a single traveller on a visit to a friend's wedding. Communication up to my visit was flawless via email and telephone. Alison demonstrated superb customer/guest service professionally but also took enough interest to make my own visit as easy and enjoyable as possible. For example, before my arrival... More

I had mixed feelings about staying in a bed and breakfast. I was travelling on my own and wondered if this would suit me. I can honestly say this is truly a four star bed and breakfast. Beautiful accommodation with nice touches in the rooms, tea, coffee, biscuits. Dressing gown and lovely towels and pillows made my trip so relaxing... More

We stayed here recently for one night and after 1 week in caravan it was just what we wanted and more! We had a family room which had a single bedroom adjacent to our room, the only issue here was there was no door between this room and the bathroom, not that it bothered us! This room was also big...

Booked the family and double room for one night last Saturday. What fabulous accommodation. The rooms have very comfortable beds, tea and coffee facilities and all the amenities along with bottled water. The breakfast was brilliant - a choice of fresh fruit, cereals along with full English. Alison was very accommodating. All in all a very good experience. Highly recommended.
