STUNNING 5-BEDROOM 4-BATHROOM HOME WITH 2-ACRE GARDEN AND FABULOUS COUNTRY VIEWS

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Hawkhurst - Barnfield House

5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, and lots of indoor/outdoor living space for 10

Ideal for families and friends who wish to spend time together in gracious, comfortable, relaxing surroundings, Visit England four-star accredited, Barnfield House is a light-filled, warm and well equipped family home on the edge of Hawkhurst village, with stunning countryside views from most rooms, and plenty of space for up to ten guests. Our stylish home has hosted multi-generation family gatherings, family-of-the-bride/groom groups, guests celebrating significant birthdays and friends' reunions. The youngest guest was a few months old, our oldest close to 90!

Accommodation is spread over three floors, with the ground floor devoted to generous living areas, five bedrooms and three bathrooms on the 1st floor, and a fourth bathroom and landing library on the 2nd floor. The living areas – large drawing room, sitting/TV room, study, and dining hall – are full of Asian antiques and artefacts, handsome furniture and comfy sofas. The kitchen is equipped for people who love to cook, and has an eight-seater farmhouse table for family meals overlooking the apple orchard. From the dining hall, bi-fold doors open onto a large deck with wisteria-covered pergola and 10-seater teak table. The views from here are magnificent, with lawns sloping towards farmland beyond the boundary, and a large unfenced pond. By the kitchen is another patio for BBQs and alfresco dining.

Not for nothing is Hawkhurst called the 'crossroads for the Weald'; It's the perfect base for exploring the many attractions of Kent and Sussex that keep families of all ages well entertained. Countryside drives reveal picturesque villages and pubs, including the Oak & Ivy Inn, famous gathering place for the infamous 18th century Hawkhurst smugglers. In addition to the famous National Trust and English Heritage historic castles, houses and gardens that attract many visitors to the area (Sissinghurst Gardens and the gardens of Great Dixter shouldn't be missed), there are many other experiences to consider, such as the Observatory Science Centre at Herstmonceux, Smugglers Adventure at Hastings, Hever Castle (home to Henry VIII's Ann Boleyn), and myriad museums covering everything from musical instruments to vintage cars, 1066 battlefields to 18th century smugglers. After all this activity, guests love returning to the comfort of Barnfield House. This 1938 home – made of Canadian cedar from its floorboards to roof shingles – has its own history: the large pond in the garden is thought to be the remains of an iron ore site from the middle ages!

Lovely, warm and comfortable space for all. We had a thoroughly enjoyable week. The kitchen and dining table has been a delight with the delightful round table a joy for evening games. Perfect for families.

Fantastic

We had a fabulous get together weekend and everybody's needs we're catered for, especially the majority if us who were happy to spend most of our time socialising in the kitchen, which was stocked to a very high standard, loved the stove. Lovely rooms and bathrooms. A coffee by the pond was one if many highlights for us. Would certainly go back in the summer. Thank you. Xx

Owner's Response: It's a delight to have such a lovely group of friends filling Barnfield House with happiness! We're glad you appreciated the well-stocked kitchen – you never know when a Magimix or mandolin will come in handy and we know many fabulous meals have been prepared there (though thankfully there are some great local pubs and even a Michelin-star restaurant within 10 minutes' drive). The wild ducks in the pond have now been joined by 11 ducklings….very cute! Do come back to Barnfield House soon. Jenny and Philip

very nice location, just to have a good time

  • 5 out of 5
just for german visitors:
eine prachtvolle Villa, ausgestattet im englischen Kolonialstil mit einer herrlichen Terrassenaussicht. Hier blieb kein Wunsch offen. Das Haus ist komplett ausgestattet, es bietet sehr viel Platz und Rückzugsraum für alle. Mit 5 Erwachsener und Kindern ist im Haus ausreichend Platz und Räume um ungestört und erholsam Südengland und die Ferien zu genießen. Kent bietet gerade für Gartenliebhaber viele Anziehungspunkte, von hier aus sind sie gut erreichbar. Auch Ärmelkanalküste und London sind mit dem Auto oder der Bahn nur 1 Stunde entfernt. Tolles Haus, tolle Umgebung, tolle Landschaft. Nur zu empfehlen.

Beautiful Barnfield House

  • 5 out of 5
I booked Barnfield House for a winter break with friends. It is well located in the heart of the countryside, but a short drive from the nearest train station, and a 15 minute walk from a village with shops and pubs.

The house itself is beautiful and spacious, with enough room for 10 adults comfortably. The numerous lounge and dining areas make for good communal meals or enough room to escape from one another!

The booking process was easy and our hosts very welcoming and knowledgable about nearby walks, directions, local amenities etc.

A great house to escape from it all, which I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anybody.

Located on the edge of Hawkhurst village on the Kent/Sussex border, our five-bedroom family home offers the perfect setting for exploring the Weald of Kent and southeast England. This is an area of outstanding natural beauty, as the far-reaching views from the house indicate, with public footpaths through farms, orchards and woodland. There's a wealth of attractions in the area for wonderful family outings, including National Trust and English Heritage properties, historic houses, heritage castles, and gardens – e.g. Bodiam Castle, Scotney Castle, Leeds Castle, Sissinghurst Gardens, Pashley Manor, Great Dixter, Batemans, Smallhythe Place. The historic towns of Cranbrook, Battle and Tunbridge Wells are a short drive away, as are the coastal towns of Rye and Hastings and the beach at Camber Sands. Outdoor activities including sailing and windsurfing at Bewl Reservoir, wakeboarding and kite surfing at Camber Sands, mountain biking and horseriding in Bedgebury, and golf (there's a golf course five minutes' walk from the house). You also have the pick of some wonderful local pubs and eateries, including Michelin-starred restaurants, and several award-winning vinyards.
