The Experience

Lynn’s breakfasts are fabulous: fresh fruit, warm croissants, home-baked breads and a daily changing twist on the traditional English. The weatherboarded guest barn may be in perfect trim but it has a been-here-for-ever feel; you have country-cosy dining tables for breakfast, a patio for summer, a big peaceful garden. Gleaming bedrooms have handmade oak bedheads, chocolates, slippers, discreet fridges, radios, TVs; shower rooms are in perfect order. Couples, honeymooners, garden lovers – many would love it here (but no children: the garden pond is deep). Warm-hearted B&B, and glorious Sissinghurst nearby.

Wonderful stay. Lynn is the perfect hostess. Superb breakfasts which are filling but healthy. Loved our morning chats whilst breakfast was prepared. The room was comfortable and cosy with a great view of the garden and fields beyond. Fantastic power shower in the bathroom. Definitely a place to return to.

Ann, Salisbury

We stayed for one night and note that many of Lynn's guests stay for longer. We can understand why. Lynn is devoted to her business. Nothing is too much trouble. She will even drive you to the local village pubs and restaurants so that you can enjoy a drink. The accommodation design decisions and furnishings have been done with attention to detail and with great taste - lots of wood and natural materials, comfortable linen, refrigerator. Fantastic breakfasts with the best brands and local produce used and Lynn is knowledgeable about the area. Exceptional experience and such a great price!

Paul, Worthing

Very comfortable, good power showers and a delight to meet Lynn. Breakfast set you up for the day with so much to see and in beautiful countryside. We wanted to stay longer but she was fully booked. We definately shall be back to this jewel in the Kent countryside.

Anthony, Bookham

Barclay Farmhouse is a superb place to stay. Lynn's a wonderful host for whom nothing is too much trouble. The accommodation is very comfortable, the location ideal and it's terrific value for money too; we'd highly recommend it.

Thank you Sawdays for showing us this special place. Lynn is a wonderful host and our stay exceeded our hopes. The accommodations are lovely and comfortable and the breakfasts divine. Lynn made every morning special with her gourmet cooking and took such care with every detail. The B&B is in a quiet spot, yet close to more sights than we could visit in 10 days. We enjoyed a delightful stay.
