Birling House is exactly what a good B&B should be. Really comfy bed with quality linen in a spotless room, and a top notch breakfast - eggs from the hens in the field behind the garden, tomatoes from the garden and excellent bacon and sausages from the pig farm up the road. Lots of cereals and fruit etc on offer...

Thank you so much for your encouraging comments - especially about the "Kent Breakfast Scheme" which has focussed me on getting great LOCAL produce onto the breakfast table. Glad you were able to visit some of the best attractions, including Batemans, lots more to see so come back for longer next time! Thanks again.

4 of us we're attending a wedding in nearby Tonbridge and Birling House offered the perfect location to stay for the weekend. This charming Kent country cottage is easy to find with good access to the main roads, yet at the same time offers peaceful rural seclusion and the feeling of being off the beaten track. The rooms are cozy,...

We needed two rooms and despite only having one available Bob gave up his room - now how amazing is that. He knew we were coming down urgently to visit our sister in intensive care and just made everything so easy - he even booked a table for us at the pub. Nothing was too much trouble. The 5* hotels...

Well I have never been referred to as "Uncle Bob" by a guest before! By coincidence my rooms were let to two lovely couples attending the same wedding, so it was "party time" from the start.

Kent for us was always a County we zipped through on the way to France, Spain or Airports to far distant climates....how little we knew... Only the quickest glance at any map would have revealed that Kent is jam packed with Historical Sites, Churches, Houses and Gardens of stunning and thoughtful beauty set in a land of rolling pastoral countryside...
