Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5
My family & I spent a great week in Twitchers despite the horrendous weather. Pouring rain and falling trees could not deter from the charming renovation which was so festively decorated. The effort made by Pauline to make this feel homely at Christmas was amazing - a real Christmas tree and decorations all around was such a surprise and it made our week so special. The provision of homemade jam, shortbread and a box of chocolates was appreciated and our 3 teenagers enjoyed them all. This was a great location for us to visit family in Kent and Essex with easy access to the motorway. I can't recommend this property highly enough and will certainly consider staying here again if we're looking for somewhere to stay.

A beautiful place to spend your holidays

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay very much. The Barn is located in the beautiful landscape of Kent. Everything was to our satisfaction. The Barn has everything you need and it was very clean. The landlady has been very friendly and helpful. The place is perfect if you want to visit the many gardens and castles around or if you just want to hike. London is less than an hour away by car or train (station:10 minutes walk). There are several pubs within walking distance. It is definitely worth a recommendation!

Simply delightful

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful barn has everything you would want for a peaceful countryside break. The setting is idyllic, it is well equipped and beautifully furnished and you wake up the the sounds of birds and the countryside. The owner, Pauline, is friendly and accommodating, even booking a table for us at a wonderful local restaurant, name escapes me, something about a habit (Dirty Habit perhaps). It is perfect for a couple who want to relax and escape the city.

Very Comfortable

  • 5 of 5
We were very comfortable at the Barn - it had everything we needed and is in a perfect location. Pauline's gardens are beautiful to view. We really appreciated the closeness to the Dirty Habit where we ate 3 times, including Sunday Lunch. It does get very busy even in the week so it is best to book.

A lot of information is provided in the accommodation, including some lovely local walks. The weather was not at its best during our stay, but we still managed to get out and do some walking.

So pleased we booked this. We will be back!

Love The Barn so much we returned 4 times !

  • 5 of 5
We don't bother looking elsewhere when staying in Kent - we simply rebook The Barn every time. We love it so much we have stayed 4 times now. It is very well appointed with all the mod cons, even WIFI, and is located in a quiet and picturesque setting. All the attractions are easy to get to from here, or you can stay in and revel in the peace and quiet while taking in the wonderful views. Pauline and John always ensure we have everything we need and make every stay memorable for us. We guarantee you won't be disappointed with this beautiful little sanctuary that we call home for 4 weeks every year. Belinda & Allan, Brisbane, Australia.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5
The barn is an amazing place to stay. We were hoping for a quiet romantic getaway from our busy work life. This is exactly what we got if not more. The barn is very well equipped with underfloor hearing, fully fitted kitchen (even with dishwasher) large bath with shower. We were more comfortable that we could have ever hoped for. We almost did not want to go out!
The barn is very easy to find, in the surrounding areas we were able to take lovely walks, the near by Leeds castle is worth a visit.
We were welcomed in by a cake, jar of milk and fresh eggs!

We will be coming back again next year. If you are considering staying here do not wait too long to book it. Its a beautiful place to stay.
