Great B&B with a brilliant host, Alison who couldn't do enough for you. Fresh cooked breakfast and a lovely bedroom with the most power shower that I have experienced in a B&B and even some hotels. It is a little remote, but it didn't take long to drive into Rochester and I would rather be outside of a town. Alison...

We had a lovely stay, great location for the Christmas market in Rochester and for London. We had a great breakfast and couldn't fault the cleanliness of the room. The Dvd collection was vast and the breakfast was awesome. I would thoroughly recommend North Downs Barn for families and couples. Alison was also a lovely host and very friendly we...

Perfectly located for North Downs Way walkers, right on the path and at a logical end-stage point, the Barn is aptly named. From the outside it is architecturally stunning and the inside is even better with a huge two-storey hall and upstairs lounge for guests in the gallery space. The lounge even has a piano. The bedrooms are spacious, comfortable...

This is a beautiful gem of a place which is excellently priced, well decorated and worth the booking. Set on a narrow countryside road you feel like you are secluded even though you're 15 mins from Gravesend. The whole place is well presented and decorated and the big comfy beds give you a restful nights sleep. A warm friendly welcome...

Me and my boyfriend stayed at North Downs Barn at the beginning of October and we didn't want to leave. We had the double room with a beautiful view of the countryside and stables below. Alison was so friendly, she even gave us a lift to the station as it was tipping it down with rain when we were just...

This barn is a hidden gem on the edge of a very busy commuter belt. Nothing is too much trouble. Peaceful location, extremely large airy room, very comfortable bed with super bed linen and the luxury of twin sinks in the bathroom. Wonderful hostess and super breakfast. One little comment is that the room no doubt has energy saving light...

Love it! Alison's lovely. She let us order takeaway and provided plates and cleared away. Delicious breakfast. Rooms incredible. Everyone should go to this place. Alison was also kind in letting us in so late.
