Reviews

  • We really did feel at home

    Posted by Katy on 18/09/2022

    We had a wonderful stay at Hawkhurst Country House. Visiting from overseas this was the perfect place for a relaxed catch up with friends and family. The garden with its wonderful open views over the Kent fields was divine - the garden decking the perfect spot to unwind and nature spot. Phillip and Jenny went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. The house was clean, well organised and well stocked with all the amenities we needed. We really did feel at home. The surrounding area is also beautiful making this a perfect place for a longer stay. We'd definitely come and stay here again.

  • We will be back!

    Posted by Mandy on 17/08/2022

    We could not have picked a more beautiful place for our family getaway. The house and gardens are beautiful and provided everything we needed. The children had a wonderful time, exploring the garden and enjoying all the board games. The hosts communication, help etc has been second to none and we would highly recommend your beautiful home to others. Fabulous. Thank you. We will be back

  • It suited us perfectly

    Posted by Gen on 24/07/2022

    Gorgeous house in a fantastic location! We were fortunate to have glorious weather which meant we could take full advantage of the beautiful gardens and spectacular views. There were 10 of us on our annual walking weekend and this house suited us perfectly. The house had every amenity you could ask for and the owners and managers could not have been more accommodating. Thank you!

  • A great bank holiday weekend

    Posted by Deepa on 31/05/2022

    Ten of us across 3 generations stayed at Hawkhurst Country House over the bank holiday weekend. We had a wonderful time. The house is beautiful, filled with lovely things (art, Knicks knacks, curios etc like a proper home) and practical things (everything you might need in a kitchen, loads of books across a wide range of topics, board games and outdoor activities to keep children entertained). The grounds are lovely, ideal for lazing with a good book. I must mention that the house was very clean and all linen and towels were pristine. Will definitely visit again AND recommend to friends.

  • Amazing views!

    Posted by Ros on 10/05/2022

    Wonderful house comfortably furnished with many personal and interesting pieces. The garden and terrace are great - secluded with amazing views across the fields and perfect for stargazing. Excellent location with good amenities nearby in Hawkhurst and a great choice of historic properties, gardens, open spaces, farm shops, coffee shops, pubs, restaurants and the coast all within close proximity.

  • A lovely family trip

    Posted by Lynn on 20/04/2022

    A family party of eight, aged 38 - 92 all had a wonderful time at Hawkhurst Country House. We all enjoyed meal times gathered around the large kitchen table in the very well equipped kitchen and spent the day after arrival relaxing in the sunshine and exploring the large garden. The choices of lounges meant that you could watch TV or just relax and chat about where we had visited that day. Hawkhurst Country House is a very homely and comfortable place to stay and we all agree we will visit it again.

  • Wonderful

    Posted by Scott on 25/02/2022

    We had a wonderful stay in Hawkhurst. The house is well designed for large groups, and our children loved playing in the garden and watching the rabbits in the morning. The hosts are splendid and extremely responsive. The house is well situated, a short walk from local restaurants and shops with good access to Kent and Sussex. We really enjoyed our stay and would happily return.
