About Jill

I'm the luckiest person to live and work here and am never going to get to the bottom of the list of things we want to do here. There's another pond to go in, more flagstone and all you lovely guests to meet from all over the world.

When we opened to guests four years ago I had no idea that it would be so enjoyable, it's a pleasure to be here and I hope it is for you.

Jill purchased this barn in 1988

Why Jill chose Cranbrook

We loved this area of England and spent 2 years looking for suitable land to buy, then spent ten years trying for planning permission and finally got it. We wanted to build in the true style of Kent and we hope you will approve of the results

What makes this barn unique

Our farm stands within a truly delightful 43 acres of beautiful quiet contryside with georgous view. We have two lakes of 12 acres to stroll around and over the last ten years we have planted 12,000 native broadleaf trees with walk ways through.

This all creates the perfect place to just chill out or explore the delights of south east England

Guestbook comments from the owner

Absolutely fabulous. High quality throughout.

Spotlessly clean, high quality furniture, fixtures and appliances. The owners were wonderful. Homemade cake on arrival (plus scones, cream and jam!) made for a wonderful welcome. We stayed for six weeks and could have stayed forever!

Stylish, comfortable, practical and cosy.

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived there was a power cut, but our charming host had put candles and lanterns in the house, supplied a delicious cream sponge cake and a very welcome bottle of wine. The power came back on a few hours later, but we had thoroughly enjoyed the barn by candlelight. The barn is very comfortable and extremely quiet. It has every modern convenience and a very well equipped kitchen. We really couldn't have asked for more. Our American guests who were staying with us were delighted with our choice and rated it as the best stay they have had in England. The barn has terrific views over the garden towards a windmill on a hill. I would thoroughly recommend staying in this charming home. We visited 6 National Trust properties in three days.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5
We have just come back from a very relaxing stay in the barn overlooking the lakes. What a magical place, the kids ran wild, while we sat in the March sun. Jill had even baked a cake and left us other goodies in the fridge. Home from home.
The beds 5 star.

Thanks

Owner's Response: Your email has come in just as I am attempting to bake two cakes at the same time for two families returning tomorrow whom stayed last year, probably fatal, but still time left to have another bake I hope!
Thank you for your kind words, we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay here at Waters End and hope you have time to come again. Best regards Jill
