About Jill

I'm the luckiest person to live and work here and am never going to get to the bottom of the list of things we want to do. There's another pond to go in, more flagstone and all you lovely guests to meet from all over the world.

When we opened to guests four years ago I had no idea that it would be so enjoyable, it's a pleasure to be here and I hope it is for you.

Jill purchased this barn in 1988

Why Jill chose Cranbrook

We loved this area of England and spent 2 years looking for suitable land to buy, then spent ten years trying for planning permission and finally got it. We wanted to build in the true style of Kent and we hope you will approve of the results

What makes this barn unique

Our farm stands within a truly delightful 43 acres of beautiful quiet contryside with georgous view. We have two lakes of 12 acres to stroll around and over the last ten years we have planted 12,000 native broadleaf trees with walk ways through.

This all creates the perfect place to just chill out or explore the delights of south east England

Beautiful cottage and location

  • 5 out of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at Hop Pickers cottage. It more than lived up to expectations being very comfortably fitted out to a high standard. The cottage is actually nicer than it looks on the photo's. Despite this being a short visit, Jill had left us a homemade cake and other provisions which was lovely. The beds were very comfortable and the cottage very warm, perfect for a winter break. The log fire really makes the living area and was all made up for us on arrival. We liked the layout of the house with ensuite bathrooms and sociable open plan living area.

The cottage feels off the beaten track and there are some lovely walks round the estate. It is only a short drive to the sea and there are lots of historic places and cosy pubs to visit. We had lunch at the Black Pig at Hawkhurst which was very good and nice friendly service.

Unlike some places which charge almost a full weeks rent for a short break, Jill's weekend pricing was extremely good value.

We look forward to visiting again soon.

Wonderful vacation at Watersend Farm!

Great, relaxing holiday! Lovely, clean, spacious house, wonderful landscape, Jill and Maurice were always there to help and advice! We are a family of six with four kids between six and 14 and everybody had fun! Chicken to feed and horses to pet right in front of our door and tons of things to see and do just within short driving distances. Thanks again everything!

Excellent rural stay

  • 5 out of 5
We were a party of four. The attention to detail was second to none, the log fire and fruit cake was most welcoming. Despite the UK wet weather we had a wonderful time. Jill and Maurice were brilliant hosts. Looking forward to visiting again.
