About Sophie Verschuur
We moved from London 5 years ago to this beautiful and well placed area in Kent. Over time we have collected an array of pets: dogs,cats, rabbits and chickens who can regularly be seen roaming the garden. We are relaxed and easy going and are always happy to help our guests in anyway whether it is information or recommendations. We run our holiday let for pleasure and so far everyone has been fantastic.
Sophie Verschuur purchased this Barn in 2010
Why Sophie Verschuur chose Benenden
It is excellently placed for everything you could wish for: walks on your doorstep with beautiful countryside, small villages, large towns, trains and good commutability.

A cosy retreat tucked away in the Kent countryside
Freshwater Barn is a delightful cottage hidden away in a large garden. Our hostess Sophie and her menagerie welcomed us into their home with a delicious home made cake! The cottage was well appointed, clean, tidy, and very well equipped with everything we needed and more. Our children especially enjoyed playing with the numerous pets - especially Toffee the dog and Minou the laid back cat! It was our great escape to the country for the bank holiday weekend.
Beautiful location in the middle of Kent. Very nice owner
Beautiful and well equipped. Sophie, it was such a relaxing week we spent at Freshwater Barn, thanks for everything.
What a lovely cake we were expected by, when arriving at your house.
Perfect stay not far away from everything.
Only the mattress of the sofabed is not really comfortable.
We recommend this place for everyone,
who wants to explore Kent.
Great little spot and prefect for the Wealden show
Little piece of paradise
Loved staying in this adorable renovated barn. The house has every comfort and the private garden is a bonus. Excellent location for exploring Kent & Sussex. Pleasant hosts. Wish I could live here!
Place was exactly as described. Charming English country-side place that was clean and comfortable! A fabulous choice!
