Orchard Way Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 8 Hawkhurst B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 29, 2012

We stayed at Orchard Way for 2 nights during a lovely hot summer, it has good public transport links with buses dropping off & picking up at the bottom of the driveway.
Across the way is a lovely pub which is highly reccomended to visit during your stay; although it is the only establishment in the local area to have dinner it is well worth it.
The owners are so lovely, kind people who really made us feel welcome and went above and beyond to make sure our stay was a very relaxing and comfortable one.
The room was very comfortable, with lovely relaxing views, and bathroom very spacious and relaxing, with an amazing 'vacant/occupied' lock.
The breakfasts were delicious, simply wonderful with a great selection - although we only had the traditional english, it was delicious.

To get from the B&B to local towns & attractions and back is easily done, although if you're subject to public transport try to plan your trip outside of the weekend and it can be rather tiresome waiting for a bus, otherwise we cannot reccomend this B&B enough and if ever in the area again we wouldn't even consider anywhere else.

Room Tip: Choose a room with ensuite, to enhance the relaxed mood.

We stayed with friends in this B&B and we had a lovely time. The breadfast was very good (perfectly cooked boiled eggs, where do you get them?). Sue was a very nice lady, who had some good advise on where to go or what to do.
We had read the reviews on Tripadvisor, so we had high expectations. We thougt the rooms were very good, but not excellent. Room 1 was very large and light, but had a very small bathroom. Room 2 was very small, there was not much room 'for living'. The bathroom was not ensuite but very large and nice.
All in all, Orchard way B&B is very nice. You will have a good time!
Do visit the pub nearby, it's cosy and has excellent food!

Stayed with Sue one night on family history research trip. Very spacious room, fair trade teas and coffee, free wi fi. Wonderfully close to a great pub. Thanks for an easy warm stay! I can't comment on breaky because I was too full from pub meal at The Great House gastro pub across the main road. Coffee was lovely, though.

What a lovely place to stay! We stayed for a couple of nights recently and would be VERY happy to return.

Lovely comfortable room, a warm welcome, gorgeous garden, great location and 2 friendly dogs!

Fantastic restaurant / pub just a 2 minute walk too (The Great House) - highly recommend!

During our stay we made use of our National Trust memberships and visited both Bodiam (prefer this in the mornings ahead of the school parties!) and Sissinghurst (which is a wonderful place!).

An excellent two night stay with Sue and John, made to feel welcome and part of the family. From the excellent breakfast with freshly baked bread, taken outside in their lush gardens to the super comfortable bedroom, we couldn’t have asked for more.
After a good night’s sleep we drove down to Rye and spent the day wandering around the town and the beach – a great stay we will definitely be back!

Great B&B - John and Sue are the most relaxed and kind hosts, the ensuite room is spacious and very comfortable, the breakfast is excellent and there is a great gastro pub at the bottom of the road. What more do you need for a perfect B&B stay?

We spent a splendid weekend at the Orchard Way B&B in Hawkhurst. Sue made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived, even providing us with homemade cookies in our room (which tasted great!) The en-suite bathroom was good, and the TV with selection of DVDs was a thoughtful addition which we made use of. Breakfast was top notch, and the whole house felt warm and homely.

Orchard Way is located just a couple of minutes' walk from The Great House pub (where Sue kindly booked us a table on request). This pub serves excellent food, and is also the starting point for a series of walks for which directions are provided. We did the Small Hawkhurst Ring which we'd recommend. Within easy driving distances are Bodiam Castle and Scotney Castle, both of which are well worth a visit.

All in all a great trip, and a great B&B!
