My husband and I spent the last 4 days of a three week trip to England at Hallwood. Absolutely delightful stay! Yes, it is a farm B&B and has wonderful accommodations. Sarah and Nigel are just so nice to visit with and Sarah does make the best breakfasts. She had homemade cookies in our room on arrival and notebooks with local area information, restaurants and local attractions. Since we had visited many gardens and selected some to see in Kent, we were interested in their favorites. Hole Park Gardens - not found in any of the guidebooks we read - rivaled many of the outstanding gardens of England! But for Sarah, we would have never explored Hole Park - with its honesty box for entry fees. Plus, we had the opportunity to see the Hallwood farm sheep sheared. Great House was outstanding for dinner. We went there 3 nights and could not have been happier with their delicious food in creative combinations. Do stay here, you will be delighted!

We stayed at the Hallwood Farm B & B for four nights in July, 2011. We agreed with all the other good reviews that this was one of the best b & b. The rooms were very large and have anything that you would need. Watch out for the low beams if you are tall. The view of the farm land and beyond was beautiful. Breakfast was very good with so many homemade things that Sarah would fix for her guest. I wish that I wasn't such a small eater so I could have eaten more. It was interesting to look at the pictures and talk to Sarah and Nigel about how they restored the farm. This was a their family farm and it was interesting to look at the book to see how they had remodeled it. The location is great for visiting the Southeast part of England. One day we went to Dover Castle and visited the castle and the secret wartime tunnels. We also visit the cliffs of Dover. Another day we visited Hever Castle. They have beautiful gardens, a maze and a water maze. For six weekends in July & August they have jousting tournaments. It was very interesting to see them dressed in the time period (also the horses ) and doing the jousting and other events . You also had a chance to shoot a bow & arrows at targets for a few extra pounds. I had a good time doing this. The third day we visited Rye and that area. It was a very nice drive We saw two boot sales on the way back.

Room tip: both rooms were very nice

We have just had the most excellent stay, Sarah, the host was charming, the accommodation was top notch as the breakfast to die for. The best eggs benedict I have ever tasted. Our room had extra little touches - maps, books to read, magazines and a good selection of drinks. Sarah went out of her way to provide decaf tea for me, not necessary but very much appreciated. Comfort was in abundance. Would I stay there again - most certainly.

As expected from a B&B with so many glowing reports on Tripadvisor, our stay at Hall Farm Oast House was excellent. We stayed in Bramling, a large room, full of character with the exposed oak frame of the building which wears the scars of centuries of service as a working oast house.

It is the small things that set this above the standard B&B – fresh milk in the fridge in our room, a lovely booklet showing the restoration of the oast house by Sarah and her family, the friendly farm dogs who are happy to take you for a walk through the orchards and blackcurrant fields.

The range of options available for breakfast would put many high class hotels to shame, with Sarah preparing smoked salmon with scrambled eggs, kippers, eggs benedict, as well as the traditional farmhouse breakfast with locally produced sausages, all served with delicious toast and a selection of her homemade jams.

For touring the houses and gardens of Kent the location cannot be beaten. Great Dixter and Sissinghurst gardens are both within a few minutes drive, as are dozens of National Trust properties, making this the ideal base for exploring Kent.

Having read all (well, most) of the previous reviews, there really is nothing new that we can add to the praises that have been written already. Large, spotlessly clean room and en suite, good sized and comfortable bed and a genuinely silent fridge, together with the perfect hostess and a great breakfast make a wonderful combination.

If ever there was anything to learn about running a B&B, Sarah could teach it all. She has anticipated your every need and has thrown in a great many extra luxuries too, making a stay here extremely indulgent. For me, she offers the best breakfast I have ever had in a B&B or hotel in this country - and I've had a lot. With a fantastic selection of cereals, yoghurts and the freshest and extensive choice of fruit, I simply didn't have room for the wonderful cooked breakfast after the first morning, delicious though it was.

We can recommend La Zia Maria, The Bull & Terracotta for good but inexpensive meals.

Thank you so much, Sarah, for a lovely break in a very pretty and interesting area - you even managed to provide sunny days! Laura & Chris

Room tip: Bodiam Castle and Rye are well worth a visit.
