The Barn ist ein wunderschönes Cottage in einer sehr idyllischen Lage. Das Grundstück ist parkähnlich mit direktem Blick suf umliegende Felder. Es gibt in der direkten Umgebung zahlreiche Möglichkeiten, mit oder ohne Hund spazieren zu gehen. Wir haben wunderbare Ausflüge in die Umgebung gemacht, ganz Kent lag uns quasi zu Füßen. Im Dorf gibt es einen Bahnhof und man kann für knapp 8 Pfund in einer guten Stunde nach London fahren .Das Cottage ist sehr gut ausgestattet und die Besitzerin sehr nett , freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wir können The Barn nur wärmstens empfehlen.
We stayed two weeks in the Barn. We were welcomed by flowers, little cakes, home-made jam and fresh eggs : a good surprise. The Barn is very comfortable and well situated. It 's very easy to visit castles, gardens and parks from Hollingbourne. We walked in the country. It was very pleasant. We enjoyed eat in the restaurant of Hollingbourne. The weather was good. Pauline's garden is beautiful and we loved see cows in the field, ducks, chikens, the big cock, rabbits and three squirrels who played together. Pauline was very friendly. She gived us informations and advices. It was our fisrt stay in England and we were charmed. Isabelle France
The Barn is in a idyllic location and it was a great destination for a relaxing break. It's well maintained and Pauline is really helpful. There's plenty to do nearby and a great pub in walking distance. The pool was also very refreshing over the heatwave!
This was our first trip to England and we are absolutly thrilled. Just 40 minutes from Folkstone (travelling via Euro-Tunnel is as easy as anything can be, espacally if you are travelling with your pet) it is an easy drive on M 20, giving you some practise in left-hand traffic.
The Barn is just beautiful. Dedicated renovated, decorated and equipped with anything you may need (we didn't miss anything) it is situated in a wonderful garden, lovningly cared for.
We were warmly and cordially welcomed, Shortbread, Cookies, some flowers and fresh-layed eggs (Penn Courts finest;-) gave an additional caring touch. Whenever we needed any help or advice, it was generously given by Pauline or Linda, her assistant.
Hollingbourne is a charming village and a perfect base to explore Kent, either by walking, driving by car or travelling by bus or train. The village shop provides a fair amount of food and other goods. If you don't want to cook, there are three pubs within walking distance.
Travelling with a tall dog isn't always easy, but there was no problem during our stay here. Sherlock was as welcomed at Penn Court as were we and we have to admit that we have never been anywhere better for pet-holidays than in Kent. Our preferences were long walks in the downs, but if dogs weren't striktly forbidden (just do some internet research to find out where this might be) Sherlock could explore Kent with us (f.e. Kent and Eastsussex Railway, Punting Tour in Canterbury).
TV and sofa are replaced by new ones, everything else in the ad is as writen or shown (but the images just can't give you the overall impression of Penn Court Cottages, 'cause they are just fragments).
We recommend The Barn to anyone and 'd love to come back sometime.
Freshly-laid eggs from Penn Court's own chickens and home-made shortbread made a lovely welcoming touch. With a writing project to complete, I found the tucked away location of The Barn offered just the kind of undisturbed peace I was after. It offers 180-degree views of the meadows beyond its own charming and entirely private south-facing garden, with a glimpse of the village church on the far side of a rippling stream visible from the Victorian cast iron and brass bed (to reassure back pain sufferers, the mattress was very firm indeed).
On the opposite side of The Barn from its own little garden is Penn Court's orchard - luckily for me, in glorious and effervescent full bloom during my stay - and beyond that, the chicken run, so, although I could see "Twitchers" and Penn Court itself, at no time did I feel the presence of my neighbours - indeed, I barely saw them at all.
Speaking of which, Pauline was a perfectly discreet hostess - having once made my acquaintence, and offered useful advice on local facilities, she left me happy in my seclusion, dropping any updates by email.
The furniture was very comfortable and everything was clean, good quality (very efficient fan oven!) and in full working order. Parking was - literally - right on the doorstep, spacious and, being a dead end, not passed by any other vehicles. The underfloor heating meant that never once in the whole week did I ever feel either too hot, or that I ought to reach for a sweater. The rooms were spacious, the bedding crisp and clean; the towels were exceptionally fluffy, and the hot waster instant and plentiful. Wifi and mobile signal worked well. What more could one reasonably ask?
The location was a perfect balance between total seclusion and not being too remote in case of emergency, and only five minutes drive from the M20 junction, so getting about wasn't an issue either. If/when I return to Kent, where to stay will be a no-brainer.
This is the 2nd time staying at the barn, this time returning with our baby daughter. We had a relaxing and enjoyable stay as we did the last time. We love the interior of the barn, and the fresh eggs from Pauline's (the owner) chickens. There is lots to do in the local area, a perfect location for walking, visiting national trust places and taking a trip to whitstable. You can also walk to the local pub. This is defiantly a place to visit if you are looking for a relaxing countryside break. Just beautiful.
