I stayed at North Downs Barn the night before my wedding at cooling castle. Myself my mum and bridesmaids we're delighted with the venue and Alison was so helpful and welcoming.

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.

What a superb find. Having been travelling around the south of England during August this was really the jewel in the crown. The value for money was amazing. Lovely welcome, lovely location, lovely bedrooms and lovely breakfast. What more could you ask for. The recovery tea, coffee and biscuits in the gallery was a welcome surprise after a four hour...

We have been looking for a 'base' for visiting family and friends in Medway for a while now and are so pleased to have found North Downs Barn. There seems to be a shortage of good B&Bs in Medway and the North Downs Barn was a breath of fresh air. Beautiful room and en suite, very clean and with lovely... More

The North Downs Barn is a lovely B&B, the building itself is amazing, the rooms are spacious and clean and breakfast is good. We stayed here while doing the North Downs Way and the hosts are friendly and accommodating, and absolutely willing to tolerate some very muddy hikers :) There was even a jacuzzi in our room, which we unfortunately...

Situated in the Kent countryside this is an ideal base for walking (Noth Downs Way), visiting historic sites or vineyards. The accommodation is top quality with Alison providing a warm welcome and great breakfast. The rooms are excellent and facilties second to none ..... lovely walks right on the doorstep.

At the edge of Cuxton - surrounded by fields and hills. A delightful location. A nice 'barn' with lovely rooms and common areas. Wood burning fire in the lounge area. Good breakfast choices. The owner is friendly and helpful.

We booked this B&B without really knowing very much about it, just wanting an overnight stop-off en-route while walking to Canterbury. It was a very pleasant surprise. The rooms are beautiful, perfectly clean, well decorated and comfortable. We were greeted enthusiastically by Alison, who had already made efforts to make a cot available for our 10 month old son.

My husband and I booked to stay here as we were attending a wedding in the area. Upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised by what we saw, as it's always a bit daunting when staying somewhere for the first time. We were greeted by Alison , who couldn't have been any more welcoming, We were shown to our room and... More
