A 14th century barn nestling in the Kent countryside, only 40 minutes from mainline London terminals. Gatwick Airport is only 25 minutes (£35 local taxi)

Middle Barn is only minutes away from three medieval castles, Hever, Chiddingstone and Penshurst, under an hour away from the South Downs, the interesting town of Lewes and the houses of Firle and Charleston on the Kent/Sussex coastline.

Breakfast is fresh fruit, pastries, croissant, artisan breads from our local craft bakery, Flourish, with homemade conserves/marmalade. Coffee is endless and kept hot from the Aga, or enjoy a herb tea, picked freshly from the garden.
Lots of great pubs with good food are close by, with many a good restaurants in the spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells and Sevenoaks both 20 minutes by car. Or I am happy to provide an evening meal cooked on the Aga with your own wine selection.
There are many attractions in the area, Bedgebury, Rudyard Kipling's Batemans, Bewl Water, Churchill's Chartwell, historic Westerham, the coastal towns of Brighton, Eastbourne and Dover. And of course the award wnning wineries of Chapel Down and Biddenden.

Interaction with Guests
As much as they want! Always pleased to offer information regarding the local points of interest, and out of the way beauty spots for picnics or hiking...
This is a rural part of Kent, no shops within walking distance, just good pubs with great food and a regular rail connection to London Bridge. Although the rail connection is variable over the weekend due to London Bridge closure.
No buses, hourly train service to London approx. 20 minute walk on the road or 15mins across a field (sometimes full of cows!!)

We felt very welcome in this beautiful house. The rooms were very nicely decorated and clean, and the breakfast at the sunny table was lovely. Thanks Suzie!
Suzie is a warm, kind and thoughtful host and we had an excellent stay here. The barn conversion is beautiful, airy and full of light, and a very relaxing place to spend the night. It was a pleasure chatting to Suzie on Saturday morning and she made us a delicious breakfast which set us up perfectly for country walks that day. Hever station is nearby, only a short walk away across the fields.

We had a lovely stay at Middle Barn last Friday night. Suzie was able to accommodate us at fairly short notice. She is the perfect host and made us feel very welcome. The breakfast was delicious and the lemon drizzle cake divine! The room was just as expected from the pics and very comfortable. Thank you Suzie! X
