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
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
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

BEST WISHES CHEERS SUZIE & RICHARD N
The best ever we have stayed at -Your problem is nowhere will as ever be as good ! We are already looking to find exactly the same mattresses !! Don't really want you to book incase you take our date !
Stayed in many self catering properties in uk over the years. This property has it all but set apart by attention to detail - tea, cake and scones waiting for us on arrival, logs ready for the burner, even basic groceries. Very comfortable beds and well appointed kitchen and ensuite bathrooms. Lots of grounds to explore. Had a great time. We'll be back
We have just got home from the most wonderful stay in the Hop Pickers Cottage at Waters End Farm. The cottage was perfect; spotlessly clean, really spacious for the four of us, but also cosy and warm, especially in front of the fire. We loved the welcome tea and had everything we needed for our stay. We'll definitely return!!
We had a wonderful time in the heart of Kent. There were a lot of interesting things to explore. The Oak Barn has been a superb and comfortable little cottage and Mr. and Mrs. Bosch were perfect hosts. It is an idyllic place in the middle of the countryside with a lovely view over the ground and the fishing ponds. The house was well equipped and we enjoyed preparing our meals in the kitchen.
We've had a lovely stay at Waters End B&B. Everything mentioned by all the others is true: if we could rate 6***, we would. Jill made a warm welcome, the house is great and the views and surroundings are splendid. We will most certainly stay again!
As we searched for a holiday property in Kent we came across Waters End - it was perfectly situated for where we wanted to be and the photos conveyed the quality of the property - there was nothing else to match it in the search! When we arrived we were welcomed with a delicious homemade tea and bread. The property is very well equipped and the quality of all furnishings, kitchen equipment, bed linen etc was excellent. We cooked a lot so it was a bonus to have such good equipment in the kitchen. The property was very clean and well maintained. We felt very welcomed by Jill - the comments on her website reflected her friendliness, even before we arrived! The space outside the French windows was wonderful for our boys to play and run in and being able to walk down to the lakes was a lovely way to end the day. We also enjoyed the company of visiting hens and Lilly the small dog, who inadvertently spent longer with us one evening than intended! We would thoroughly recommend Waters End.
