House and garden more than met our expectations. The house is beautifully furnished and equipped. The beautiful garden with its lovely view is a magnet for adults to relax and children to run and play. Hawkhurst is ideally situated for various day trips to the seaside, castles, lakes and charming villages or towns.

Management response:

Heinz and family were perfect guests and we would be very pleased to welcome them back to Barnfield House.

We're delighted you loved your stay at Barnfield House – thank you for your generous comments; 'expert homemaker' is a huge compliment! You certainly made the most of your stay here, with action-packed days visiting amazing places in the area! But as you say, with those large gardens and fab view, it's tempting to stay put!

We had a wonderful stay at Barnfield House and a lovely welcome from Jenny and Phillip. The house had everything you needed and was very clean. It was also close to some great pubs and a 30minute drive from Rye where we spent the afternoon. We all loved the house so much that we're planning to return in April! I...

Additional Rate and Availability Information
We require a 50% deposit to secure the booking, with the balance to be paid 60 days prior to arrival together with a returnable security deposit of £250 a week to cover damages or any extra cleaning required.
Arrival time is from 4pm and departure is by 10am; early check-in and late check-out may be available for an extra charge.
Please enquire if you would like to book longer than 3 nights and shorter than a week!
Outside of the peak summer season, we can be flexible about the changeover day.
We expect the house to be left in the same clean and tidy condition as on arrival for the deposit to be refunded in full. Otherwise the cost of extra cleaning will be deducted from the security deposit. (But we anticipate returning the full deposit, barring any little accidents!)
