We booked this lovely, spacious house for our extended family to get together over Christmas. It is within walking distance of Hawkhurst village with supermarkets, pubs, shops, playground, cafes etc.
The accommodation is roomy, comfortable and furnished to a high standard. We enjoyed log fires in the log burner in the main lounge.
The kitchen is well equipped and suited to those who like to cook; we were easily able to cook Christmas dinner for 8.
There is a large utility room with an additional sink, a washing machine and tumble dryer.
We arranged for a high chair and travel cot to be provided, and these were of good quality.
The owners were very helpful and responsive.
This is our fifth stay at Barnfield which speaks for itself. The house is lovely, big and spacious yet cosy with beautiful views over the Kent countryside. We are a group of six ladies who don’t usually venture far as we enjoy all the facilities that Barnfield has to offer, although some of us did venture out to the local Christmas Market which was lovely and festive. We are made to feel so welcome by Jenny and Philip and we are now looking forward to our sixth visit in 2018. Highly recommended.
There were 10 of us staying at Barnfield House with ages ranging from 1 to 81 and we had a fabulous week of family fun! We had a Tesco delivery to the house on our arrival day but there is a Tesco store just up the High Street if you need to shop and there is also a Waitrose in the town.
In the house, there are two sitting rooms, enabling the quieter members of the family to spend time together, in our case over a jigsaw, whilst the rowdier lads could football in the TV room! There is also a small downstairs study with garden games and board games plus loads of books to read! The kitchen is well stocked too, each of the bedrooms are roomy, clean and comfortable - as is the whole house - and there were enough bathrooms and toilets to make our inter-generational stay easy and very comfortable.
The outside space is amazing too, although ours was not a good week for weather which meant that we made full use of the inside space for most of our stay.
Jenny, the owner was a great communicator throughout and nothing was too much trouble for her. Great house and garden, would definitely go back!
We loved our stay at this very nice house set walking distance from Hawkhurst center. A great base for a tour of local castles, pubs, the beautiful countryside and easy access to London via the train as well as tons of local history. Our kids loved playing in the garden in the evenings, and we enjoyed coffee in the morning and wine in the evening on the back deck overlooking golden fields of wheat and mature oak trees. We even had a visit one evening from a stag and doe. The house is very nice, but the garden and its views make it special! We hope to be back :)
