Thank you for a wonderful break in your beautiful, well-equipped barn.  Such a great location for visiting this part of Kent with so many attractions….

Beautiful barn- wonderful place to come back to each day.  Many things to do in the local area.

Great location, comfy cottage, very relaxing and energy recharging.  Better than we hoped for.  Will miss Bella, top cat.*

Our second visit, every bit as enjoyable as our first.  Jenny, Richard and Bella as hospitable as ever. Look forward to coming back.

Very good location for visiting family in Staplehurst and old haunts in Kent…..The Hop Barn was warm and well-equipped.  Thank you.

Many thanks Richard and Jenny.  A beautiful place from which to visit a beautiful county.  Very comfortable with every facility. Very gracious and helpful hosts.

It’s a very beautiful cottage in a very nice country!!  Merci Beaucoup…Nous revendrais

What a beautiful county and cottage/barn!! Thanks for all the advice! The barn felt like coming home after a day out…

We had a glorious week….your jam and marrow delicious …We regret just one thing that we did not book the barn for another week.

We had a wonderful week….The barn is perfect. The weather was great and we visited a lot of interesting places.  We loved Bella*.

*Note from owners:  Bella is our cat!




What a lovely barn! You are both so lucky to live in such a beautiful and peaceful part of the world.  We’ve had a relaxing time in pretty surroundings and with great hosts.  Thank you very much.

Very warm welcome.  Lovely barn.  Hope to return

Our third visit as relaxed as the first. .Our best wishes to you both and thank you Hop Barn.!

A really lovely place to stay, would definitely come back.

A beautiful home for a week in a lovely area – will definitely recommend it to friends. Plenty to do in a grey cloudy week:  Dover and Deal castles, Canterbury Cathedral and NT stately homes

We had a lovely relaxing stay in the barn…thank you, we’ll be back!!!

Lovely quiet and comfortable place to relax and enjoy the great places in the area.  Thank you Jenny and Richard for the lovely break.

Dear Jenny and Richard,  The Hop Barn is so charming and cosy we would like to keep it secret and at the same time recommend it to all our friends and family.  Thank you for your warm welcome.

A really pleasant stay- cloudy to begin with but this did not spoil visits to Dover Castle, Great Dixter, Rye and Hastings, Batemans, Sissinghurst and the wonderfully quirky Romney,Hythe and Dymchurch Railway and Dungerness.

The owners Richard and Jenny were very welcoming and keen to ensure a comfortable stay.  The Hop Barn is a gem in a peaceful setting.  We’ve never slept so well!  So much to do and see in the area.  We’ve had a wonderful week.
