The Experience

Harriet and Oliver have created a truly gorgeous, light and airy place to stay. Guest bedrooms are on one side of the house and completely separate from their quarters, so you’ll feel nicely private and you can come and go as you please. Three bedrooms (two with their own terraces) are minimalist and calming with robes, slippers, good coffee, smart TVs and underfloor heating. Double doors open onto the west facing terraces for super sundowners with stunning views over the High Weald. Books to browse, a guest fridge, and a freezer full of Harriet’s homemade ice cream are in the breakfast room.

Choose from a fabulous breakfast menu the night before: home baked bread, homemade fruit compotes, French toast, smoked chipotle beans and sourdough toast, or good old bacon and eggs, all from local suppliers.

You’re welcome to roam the garden (or sit in it): nature pond, veg patch, lawns and shrubs plus views stretching 17 miles on clear days.

The neighbourhood

You're on the edge of the attractive village - known for its distinctive white colonnaded high street - so it's a 20-minute walk to the local pub, independent shops and even a cinema. You're surrounded by beautiful walking and cycling countryside, bike storage is available, and there are 6 National Trust properties within 10 miles, including Sissinghurst. Visit vineyards like Chapel Down.

Local points of interest from Harriet & Oliver Sullivan

  • Hawkhurst is known as the "crossroads of the Weald" and is a great base to explore the many attractions of Kent and Sussex. It's just a 20 minute drive to the coast where you can explore the ancient Cinque Port of Rye and glorious sands of Camber.
  • There are 6 National Trust properties within 10 miles including Sissinghurst and Bodiam Castle and well-renowned gardens such as Great Dixter and Pashley Manor are only a short drive away.
  • The gardens at the B&B are also worth exploring! There are several seating areas where guests can relax and watch the wildlife including the popular bird feeders, our resident rabbits and newt-filled pond!
  • There is a extensive network of public footpaths to explore right from the house. If you prefer two wheels, you can bike round the reservoir at Bewl or for the more adventurous, tackle the off-road trails at Bedgebury (hire available at both).
  • Kent is leading the UK wine industry thanks to its favourable climate and terroir and there is no shortage of tastings/estate tours! From Chapel Down to the much smaller independent wineries, discover the unique styles that they all have to offer.
  • For avid foodies,there's plenty to choose from including The White House in Biddenden and The Small Holding in Kilndown as well as many other excellent restaurants and pubs nearby.


Harriet & Oliver Sullivan

Harriet (fashion then artisan ice cream) and Oliver (visual effects for film and TV) have dreamed of doing B&B for many years. They used to live and work in London - but adore travelling themselves and have always sought out B&Bs over corporate hotels. They particularly liked the ones they found in the States and wanted to bring a contemporary spin to the classic British B&B experience.
