We stayed for one night at Summerhill, arriving quite late after a wedding. Chris had sent us directions to the property with a map to show us where to park. We were quite tired when we arrived, and we were pleasantly surprised by our room. The generously stocked tea tray was so welcome, with plentiful supplies and even fair trade... More

Thank you to our hosts Jacqueline and Chris for giving us such a comfortable stay in your beautiful home. As we told you at the time we wished we had booked in for a longer stay! A welcoming cuppa on our arrival, knowledgeable hosts and nourishing breakfasts make for fond memories of Summerhill! We wanted to visit Sissinghurst and so... More

The location of this B&B is off-putting (in a road full of cars with the entrance via the garden). However, when we knocked on the door we were immediately made to feel very welcome by Chris and that continued throughout our stay. The little extra touches made all the difference: tea and home made cake served in the tranquil garden;... More

I spent five week at Chris' and Jacqueline's house. I very much enjoyed the very warm atmosphere in their house. They were always helpful with tips for trips, restaurants and pubs, but also always very respectful to privacy. Thanks!

I was passing through Hawkhurst during a few days walking and had seen this B&B on various sites. Emailed Chris and booked the single room for 1 night. I arrived at about 7pm, the directions that were sent along with the confirmation email were accurate and I liked that it was hand written, instead of just having a link to... More

It was a pleasure and a privilege to be made so welcome in Chris and Jacqueline's home. (By Bow the springer too!)They pay great attention to detail and everything was excellent from the lovely comfortable room overlooking the pretty garden to the delicious breakfasts. They helped to make our holiday enjoyable and relaxing. Hawkhurst is an ideal centre from which... More

I visited Kent for the first time last month and found Hawkhurst an ideal base for sorties to the many, many places of interest in that county and East Sussex. The Summerhill B&B proved to be an added bonus with very attentive hosts, Chris, Jacquline and Bow, (the last being a lovely Springer Spaniel), a charming and very comfortable house... More

We can highly reccomend this lovely B&B although it is a bit difficult to locate. Chris and Jacqueline made us very welcome (fab homemade cake) with a nice cuppa. The room was lovely, airy, bright and extremely well furnished. The beds are comfortable and we were woken by the morning chorus and the sunshine streaming in. Breakfast was a real... More

Chris and Jacqueline provided a very warm welcome on our arrival. The room was large with en-suite and a nice powerful shower. The facilities in the room were well thought out, including fresh milk with tea/coffee (not sachets), fresh cooked biscuits, and all the usual extras (TV/toiletries etc). The bed was firm with nice pillows. The room was warm, airy... More
