A quiet place in lovely surroundings. We would have made use of the gardens if time had permitted. Beautiful room, very clean and a lovely guest tray was provided. Excellent breakfast. Sarah and David so friendly, welcoming and interesting to talk to. Nothing too much trouble for the team who helped them. Would recommend a stay.

Having lived in the area for many decades we have gained, both some useful and some quirky, information about Canterbury and it's surrounding area which we very much enjoy imparting to interested guests. Thank you for spending time reviewing Iffin Farmhouse. It is so useful to guests to get an experienced view of what is on offer here.

We stayed here on our way driving back home to Sweden. We chosed the place based on its rural location close to Canterbury, the excellent reviews and not the least being dog friendly. All was beyond expectation. Beautiful location and very friendly atmosphere, excellent food and comfortable rooms.

Tucked away in the countryside, within easy reach of Canterbury, this is an ideal place to stay for a break. Great food and accommodation. Friendly owners and staff. Our stay in the studio apartment was at the top of a small field, still close to the main farmhouse, which added another layer of peace and tranquility. Recommended!

So we booked this place as had to travel from Ipswich to a funeral. We struggled to find somewhere that was nearby and would take dogs and that didn't appear to be a complete hole from pics and reviews. Saw this little number and did appropriate research on trip advisor and appeared all in order so gave them a call....

Sorry for the reason for your visit to us. As animal lovers ourselves we quite agree that a four legged companion doesn't imply second rate accommodation and it certainly doesn't staying at Iffin Farmhouse. Although, as we appreciate some guests have allergies we do have some animal free rooms (as long as outside doors are kept shut there won't be...

Booked this accommodation based on previous reviews and was not disappointed. We stayed in the garden apartment which was very well equipped, with fresh milk etc. for drinks. spotless and very quiet. It is a short walk from the main farmhouse but this is only a problem if you have mobility issues and Sarah does alert you to this fact...

Thank you for your time reviewing Iffin Farmhouse...... Yes, we have quite a menagerie here - bipeds and quadrupeds alike (all pre loved!).... Wish you could be here now and experience the garden. It is probably the most spectacular spring I have known. The white and pink clouds of apple and cherry blossom, red clusters of the Japonica, the last...

This is a lovely place to stay only minutes outside of Canterbury and within very easy reach of all the Kent coast and other attractions. We stayed in the pink room which was large and comfortable and had everything you would need. Service was excellent and very friendly. Sarah went the extra mile! The cats are also extremely friendly which...

The non negotiables for me on a trip, are crisp fresh bed linen, good shower and an excellent breakfast. Iffin Farmhouse delivered on all of these and was also a place we could bring our retriever - Barney. The underfloor heating created a nice cosy atmosphere. The room was well equipped with TV, tea and coffee, fridge and microwave. The...

We are very fortunate to have so many wonderful young people working with us. It is not easy for them in today's climate to have opportunities to develop such a variety of skills. It has been lovely over the years to see young people grow and for our guests to appreciate them too

Stayed for one night in one of the self catering apartments. The setting and apartment was absolutely top notch as was the breakfast. Genuinely friendly owners and staff. We truly wished we were staying for longer.

Thank you for your kind comments. If you appreciated the setting here in the winter you must come again in the summer and enjoy breakfast on the veranda. Plenty of wonderful walks to discover directly from the Farmhouse too

We stayed here for one night in one of the self catered apartments whilst visiting our son at University. We had our cocker spaniel dog with us so it suited us very well.

I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay here. As long as I have some notice for meals off the usual menu I never mind. In fact your vegan meal looked so lovely I cooked the same for the family the following evening. We all agree it was very tastey as well as attractive.
