Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Simply the very best,’ wrote one reader this year. From on high, Wendy and Neil Burrows’s farmhouse enjoys stunning sunsets over the Alkham valley. B&B guests are offered ‘delicious’ home-made cake on arrival, a picnic for walks on the Kent Downs; an evening bowl of soup; the chance to unwind in the the sauna. ‘I felt truly looked after,’ another reader enthuses. ‘Wendy and Neil are warm, attentive hosts.’ Discreet bedrooms each have a private entrance; within the country-style rooms: fresh flowers, robe and slippers, coffee machine, mini-fridge, biscuits and complimentary sherry; expansive rustic views. An oak-framed shepherd’s hut in the garden has a log-burner. An ‘outstanding’ breakfast brings home-baked muffins, local pressed apple juice, garden-fresh eggs. ‘I wish we could have stayed for weeks.’

Guest comments

'Wendy and Neil are the warmest hosts you could meet. Our room, the Wisteria Room, was comfortable and well appointed. Every detail is thought about. The breakfast was perfect, with a breathtaking view, whilst sitting next to a cozy fire. ' - Laura Kolb - December, 2017
'I felt truly looked after. I arrived in the dark, and was met by a very warm lady, Wendy. with a torch. After delicious sponge cake with tea by the fire, I took flopped into my beautifully crisp bed in the 'wisteria room'. I felt I'd landed in my own private den. Breakfast in their conservatory-is plentiful. I munched away looking out on to idyllic country scenes; endless green fields with relaxed horses doing their thing. After breakfast, I spent time in the sauna, then had a little explore of the hamlet. Wendy offered to make me soup in the evening, which I devoured with fresh local bread! I left the following day feeling replenished, but sad to leave. The excellent hosting and exquisite surroundings make staying here so luxurious and restorative. It reminds you how wonderful the British landscape can be, and how soul - boosting kind people are. I can't wait to go back. I'd recommend it to everyone! ' - Harriet Olins - October, 2017
