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

Jill went out of her way to welcome us and even though we couldn't stay in the original accommodation we booked (due to boiler failure) it didn't impact on our stay. Would definitely recommend to others.
We had a wonderful week! Made a lot of nice walks, even on the property!
What a beautiful place! We had such a lovely weekend and felt completely at home with all the creature comforts. The barn has been built to an extremely high standard with all mod cons and at the same time a rustic feel. The views are stunning and the dogs had a wonderful time walking round the lakes.
A beautiful old pub nearby (one of a few) and the food was yummy!
We cannot thank you enough for a well deserved break away from it all.
We can't wait to go back!!
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!!
