The Experience

Brian and Antonia’s 200-acre fruit farm is perched on the edge of the Weald of Kent, with stunning views over orchards and oast houses. The farmhouse has 17th-century origins (low ceilings, wonky floors, stone flags) and a conservatory for sunny breakfasts; colours are soft, antiques gleam, the mood is relaxed. Pretty bedrooms have garden views, TVs and magazines; there’s a comfy sitting room too. Come in spring for the blossom, in summer for the fruit and veg from the garden; chickens roam free. The Greensand Way runs along the bottom of the farm, you’re close to Sissinghurst Castle and 45 minutes from the Channel Tunnel.

A warm welcome, very comfortable room in a lovely house, excellent breakfast. Beautiful garden and views. Thank you.


We stayed at Reason Hill near Maidstone for a family wedding and it was simply fabulous. Antonia and Brian were lovely hosts, our rooms were extremely comfortable and we had wonderful breakfasts complete with fresh strawberries from their garden - couldn't fault it at all. I hope we'll find an excuse to go back there in the future.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Brian & Antonia Allfrey

  • Close to Leeds Castle 'The Loveliest Castle in the World'.
  • 15 minutes from Bedgbury Pinetum, the world's finest collection of conifers and now including "Go Ape" the tree top forest adventure course.
  • Six historic gardens, all within an hour's drive, including the famous Great Dixter and Sissinghurst Castle as well as numerous lesser known and specialist gems.
  • You can be in France in under two hours via the Channel Tunnel, making Reason Hill a perfect place to spend the night before an early start.
  • Bodiam, Hever, Sissinghurst, Chiddingstone, Dover, Scotney and Rochester Castles all within easy reach, as well as Chartwell, Batemans, Igtham Moteand and other historic houses.
  • There are many local village pubs for a summer lunch after a walk in the countryside and the charming towns of Tunbridge Wells, Tenterden and Rye are all good for shopping, antiques, cafes and restaurants.
