What a beautiful venue, went for a family wedding and it was perfect, fantastic service, lovely staff, great food.

My son is quite fussy, and although the food was lovely, he does not like sauces etc. I explained to the lady and she went off and got him some plain chicken and rice, which he loved- made such a difference- some places do not care about this sort of thing, I was really impressed. The gardens are beautiful as well.

Stayed here for my sisters wedding in May 2012, great nights sleep, lovely breakfast and the owners treat you like family, nothing was too much trouble (and I can be awkward!).

Also a fantastic venue for a wedding, beautiful surroundings and the barn is beautiful.

Only "niggle" we had is that the room (where technically being in the loft) was very hot in the morning, I'm sure if we had asked for a fan it wouldn't have been a problem though but we were up and out early anyway.

Would love to stay again in future!

Dear Guest

Many thanks for your review, so sorry it has taken us so long to respond.

We are so delighted that you enjoyed your stay, loved the surrounding and the barn, we wanted to let you know that, whilst we still treat everyone like family and nothing is too much trouble, only couples and their nearest and dearest can now stay in the Old Barn as we operate as a wedding venue only.

Kind regards

just returned from a truly wonderful stay at the old kent barn .roger and hilary make you feel welcome from the minute you arrive . the rooms are so clean and spacious .we stayed in the topaz suite which was gorgeous.. i woke up at six in the morning which was unusual for me but had a bath and watch the sunrise from the bathroom window which truly made it all worth while. i can honestly sayt his place is a real gem . the breakfast is the best ive ever had . i only wished i had 2 eggs rather than 1 as hilary had asked . these people are truly great hosts . couldnt do enough for us . will we be back ......you try and stop us . only down side i can say is if you dont set your alarm you will miss hilarys full engish what is to die for . trust me enjoy ...... terry and christine from romford essex

Dear Terry and Christine

Many thanks for your review and sorry it has taken us so long to respond; whilst breakfast was definitely one of Hilary’s specialities it has taken us a while to get up to speed with social media.

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, and whilst all the facilities and the five star service is still available the B&B is now only available to couples and their nearest and dearest after a wedding.

Kind regards

My husband and I have just returned from a 4 night stay at 'The Old Kent Barn'. The Barn is off the busy main road, so its lovely & quiet. Hilary & Roger are wonderful hosts & made us feel very welcome. We stayed in the spacious & very comfortable Ruby room, which is also the 'Bridal Suite', as couples can get married on the site, either in the Barn, on the gorgeous gallery over-looking the garden or in the garden itself under a lovely gazebo. The breakfast each morning was delicious, with a selection of fresh fruit, cereals and fruit juices available. We had the full cooked breakfast and didnt need to eat again until very late in the afternoon. There is a fish pond at the front of the barn & also a tennis court to use. We stayed at the Barn due to its location in Kent, it gave us the opportunity to visit Bodium, Hever, Dover, Walmer & Deal Castles (yes, we are history geeks!) and we also went to visit Canterbury, Whitstable, Herme Bay & Margate. We would fully recommend staying at The Old Kent Barn & we also hope to return there.
