Great location, great accommodation. Katie & Andy are great hosts. Thouroughly recommend 👍
The dairy cottage was really comfortable & clean. The grounds & activities were spacious with loads to do for the kids. A great find.
Thank you for your review. We are so glad you have enjoyed your stay.
Fabulous for Adults and Children
Dairy Cottage is a rural haven, yet so close to London for day trips - but our two girls just wanted to stay on the lovely Hamptons Farmhouse grounds. They like the tennis court now but a few years ago it would have been the trampoline and zip wire.
With the open barn and the gazebo (which overlooks the tennis court and other play facilities) the grown-ups have plenty of places to relax.
We will be stay here again.
Thank you for taking the time to do a review for us. Thank you for being such good guests. We look forward to you staying again.
This was our fourth year staying at Hampons Farm. The relaxed, happy, fun atmosphere is hard to beat. Recommend to anyone. We have already booked for next year.
It is a real pleasure having you visit. Thank you for your kind review. And we look forward to seeing you again in 2019.
Wonderful relaxed holiday at a beautiful location
This was our first time at the Hamptons Farmhouse. We stayed with our two Kids in the Dairy Cottage: plenty of space for everybody, everything is provided for, so that we felt very comfortable. The outside premises of the Farmhouse are just stunning: Beautiful views, lots of places to sit and relax, numerous places for the Kids to Play (sand-pits, slides, Tennis court, trampolines, Little Kids houses, tree house). So the Kids can take off by themselves and the parents can relax. If you do want to get out, there are lots of Things to do and to see within 10-30mins of driving. Also, London makes a very easy day-trip from here. Overall: a Wonderful experience at a great Location with very nice hosts.
Perfect escape to the country!
We had a perfect stay in Dairy cottage. The cottage was really comfortable. A nice surprise were the food, wine and flowers we found on arrival. It was unusual hot weather, but the cottage stayed cool. Also it was lovely to sit in the shade of one of the beautiful big trees that grow on the property. Our children enjoyed the trampoline, tenniscourt and big swings.
It was really nice to sit and watch the sun set over the hills.
The connection to London by train is perfect. In a good half hour you are from Tonbridge in the center of the city. A highlight for us was the visit to the Harry Potter studios in Leavesden.
We can really recommend the cottage. Katie and Andy created a really relaxed place with lots to do for children. Because of the hot weather we didn’t do as much as we wished, so we have plenty of reason to come back!
A perfect escape to the country!
We had a lovely week in Dairy cottage. On arrival we found food, wine and flowers and the cottage was really comfortable. The surroundings are lovely. There are seats everywhere to enjoy the view or to sit in the shade. We had unusual hot wheather, but the cottage stayed rather cool and there were beautiful big trees to sit under.
The children enjoyed the big swing, the trampoline and the tenniscourt.
The trainlink from Tonbridge to London was perfect. And we also went (by car) to the Harry Potter studios in Leavesden. That was the highlight of our week!
We can truly recommend the accomodation and thank you for a lovely week!
