“Lovely location in a lovely area”
Reviewed 26 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Booked this as a thank you for mother and friend , and we joined them for two days. Sally and James are perfect hosts , available if you need anything , Sally showed us the fox Cubs which were being looked after in her garden . The apple barn is situated in a wooded area , with chickens ( no roosters) and goats close to the front , and a fenced garden at the back , where we saw nuthatches , squirrels , and heard owls and saw bats in the evening. Lots of walks from the location. We had a small dog with us , which also thoroughly enjoyed herself.
Wadhurst has lots of interesting places to visit close by , such as Bewl , Bedgebury pineteum , Scotney castle to name a few. The cottage has 1 double , 2 singles and a bathroom upstairs , a fully equipped kitchen with table for 4 , and a nice lounge with tv downstairs
If you want to base yourself in a peaceful countryside area , with many possibilities of activities and places to visit nearby , then this is the place for you

Thank you for your lovely review, you were great guests to have stay and we're both so glad you all enjoyed yourselves. Just sorry you didn't get to have a meal at either the Bull or Bell pubs, however if you come again (which would be lovely) we will make a reservation for you to ensure you get a table. But glad you enjoyed your curry and games instead. We would welcome you to the Apple Barn again the next time you are after a break, do come again...

“Heavenly Spring getaway”
Reviewed 5 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This charming barn, within walking distance of Bewel water, tea rooms and a number of Gastro pubs was enjoyed by all our family, even the two teenage boys. The chickens and goats kept the boys fascinated for hours, whilst my husband and I enjoyed the Spring birdsong and sunshine in the garden. Visited nearby National Trust properties. Lots to see and do locally. The kitchen is spacious and big enough to eat in. Bedrooms charming. Spotlessly clean despite dogs being allowed. We will be back with our bicycles next time.

“Enchanting...”
Reviewed 30 April 2016 for a stay in February 2016

From the intriguing drive that disappears into the woods to the joy of waking up to birdsong, everything about this beautiful and well-appointed property lends itself to a magical getaway destination. Clever use of space, artistic touches and a warm welcome all add to the experience. With masses to do for all age groups in the beautiful surrounding area this is definitively a hidden gem we can't wait to return to. Thank you for making our stay so memorable and enjoyable!

“Lovely cottage, beautiful countryside surroundings.”
Reviewed 23 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The cottage was beautifully renovated and owners were really kind. It was clean and had everything for a relaxing holiday.There were chickens and cats and three wonderful goats living there also, which was great. The cottage was surrounded by woods so it was very peaceful and quiet. Definitely will go back.

“Beautiful cottage in a gorgeous setting”
Reviewed 24 March 2016 for a stay in September 2015

Stayed here with my husband and 4 year old and had an absolutely lovely time, wished we could have stayed longer. The barn is beautifully finished. There is plenty of space and it's in a wonderful setting. The location is ideal whether you like, walking or cycling. Plenty of places to visit nearby and if you like shopping,Tunbridge Wells is a must. Looking forward to visiting again soon.
