Welcome to Barnfield House, our family-friendly holiday rental in Hawkhurst Kent — we’re delighted you found us!
Barnfield House has been our happy English country home for 20 years, ever since we returned to the UK following a long expat life in Asia — we fell in love with its light-filled rooms and fabulous countryside views. Somehow the travel bug never We still live between England and Asia, and for the past 10 years, we’ve been delighted to share Barnfield House with families and groups of friends from all over the world. Some come for a weekend, some for weeks—and all feel at home as soon as they walk in the door.
When we’re in residence ourselves, we can never get enough of the stunning view across farmland to the ancient church on the Moor, so the deck is a favourite spot; there’s nothing like leisurely, laughter-fuelled meals under the Wisteria-covered pergola when the sun is out — a favourite pasttime of our guests too! We enjoy countryside walks in Bedgebury Forest using the network of footpaths just outside the house, visiting the alpacas and inevitable ending up in a local pub — the Eight Bells is great for lunch. And an afternoon at Scotney Castle or Sissinghurst Castle Gardens is always a pleasure; we recommend taking out a National Trust membership as there are so many places to visit within a short drive of Barnfield House.
Whether you are planning a cross-generation get-away or a reunion with far-flung friends, we would love to hear from you. And we look forward to sharing the magic of our much loved Kent country home with you.
