Reviews

We've had a lovely relaxing time here in Kent, in the most spotlessly clean and beautifully equipped holiday home we've ever stayed in. We found everything we needed here and have all slept really well in the comfortable beds. The peace and tranquility of the farm have all contributed to a fantastic well needed break. We recommend visiting the local pub The Bell and Jorrocks for a delicious meal in a friendly and relaxed surroundings. Tenterden os grat with some lovely shops, cafes and the Lemon Tree Restaurant where we highly recommend the cooked breakfast. Thank you for such a fab stay - we wish we could have stayed longer but work calls.

Previous Customer,

Fantastic accommodation, could not fault. We loved the details, pint of milk, umbrella by the door, made to feel very welcome. We enjoyed Sissinghurst and Hever Castles and saw a great deal of the counties countryside and villages. The heatwave was a challenge, but we weren't the only ones in that respect. We will highly recommend to friends and family. many thanks

Graham and J,

We've had a wonderful week in this superb holiday home. The best we have ever found for comfort, cleanliness, and provision of just about everything. Thank you Sue and family for your warm welcome, the wine and fruit, and your kindness. We are returning home with the best memories of our holiday.

J & C,

A big thank you for letting us stay. We have had a very relaxing time.

family from N,

What a great holiday home. We've really enjoyed being in the Kent countryside. It's been a delight walking around and seeing all the animals. The holiday home is amazing, clean, bright and a real home from home. The welcome pack was a very thoughtful touch and the amenities are outstanding.

couple from C,

One of the cleanest holiday properties I have stayed in! Very warm, friendly but discreet hosts with some lovely welcome goodies. I would certainly recommend it.

Mrs Sandra H,

The property and owners were brilliant. The cottage was immaculate and the facilities were amazing. Great location for local sights, stunning views and pubs/restaurants. We would definitely stay at The Milking Parlour again. Thank you.

Mrs Jenny L,

A big advantage with the property The Milking Parlour are the two bathrooms. Perfect for people travelling together like just good friends or as in my case siblings. The owner family was very helpful and open minded upon our special requirements. Highly recommended!

Mrs Sonia A,

Time rushes away and this mail should have been sent to you a long time ago! We both enjoyed the time at your farm very, very much and would have loved to stay even longer in the beautiful property. But our plans were to meet with my son and his family in West Yorkshire and the program was tight. Your Milking Parlour is excellently equipped, nicely decorated and tastefully furnished. The entire interior is very harmonic. In my review I mentioned the advantage of having 2 bath rooms. Especially when friends or siblings are travelling together, but not automatically want to share the bath. We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Previous Customer,

Absolutely fabulous.

Very friendly owners and extremely comfortable accommodation. Lots of games for rainy days - which we didn’t need but very thoughtful. The food welcome pack was another nice touch.

Mr Geoffrey P,

We are agreed in choosing The Milking Parlour for our weeks holiday was enlightened reviews so well expressed by previous guests. Being somewhat elderly holiday makers, it has proved an excellent centre for visiting the national trust and gardens. Furthermore the younger member of our group has enjoyed some excellent cycling around the countryside. A good time had by all!

Mr R D,

We have had a wonderful week in the Milking Parlour. The Cottage is very comfortable and we felt very welcome. Nice and quiet, only the sounds of the countryside, the sounds from the cows and bellows of the sheep and the singing of the birds. The weather wasn't as expected one day, so we spent time doing a jig saw puzzle and had a lovely day. The other days we made some trips in Kent, It's a place we will go back to.

Previous Customer,

Previous Customer,

We have had a fabulous time here at The Milking Parlour with our two boys who are 8 & 10. The sweets and games were a lovely touch and very much appreciated along with all the other special touches that made our stay a home from home experience. We have had a wonderful time visiting many places, Sissinghurst, Canterbury and we left a couple of leaflets of our tours of Kent. Most of all we loved all the animals and the fact that our son managed to see a lamb being born, an experience he will never forget. Thank you so very much.
