Forget those all Travelodge's and Inns next to motorways. Instead enjoy the countryside and stay at the 4**** Bethersden Old Barn bed and breakfast - a Grade 2 listed converted 18th century listed Kentish Barn -a very short drive from Tenterden. Plenty of exposed beams and original features, the beds are "really comfortable" (so our guests say) and the breakfasts “simply delicious”. We are founder members of the “Kent Breakfast” scheme which means the majority of our produce is local.
The Old Barn Bed and Breakfast is situated mid way between Ashford and Tenterden, just on the edge of Bethersden village, right in the heart of the "Darling buds of May country". Being so close to Tenterden means we are a great central base for visiting the local sights and convenient for both Eurostar at Ashford, Eurotunnel at Folkestone and the sea crossings at Dover. It's only 37 minutes into central London from Ashford International station, or our local station, Pluckley is only 3 miles. Incidentally, Pluckley is the most haunted village in the UK.
Sissinghurst's famous gardens and Scotney and Bodiam Castles (all National Trust) are a short drive, Great Dixter, the coast and historic Canterbury a little further. Tenterden (5 miles) offers good shopping and the Kent and Sussex Steam Railway. We have several country pubs close by: The Bull at the top of the hill and The George pub in the village centre. Bethersden has a Post Office/Shop, local butcher and a hairdresser.
We have a 1 luxury twin with private facilities and 1 double (actually a 4 roomed luxury suite) available. Online availability and bookings can be made via our web site or by calling to check availability.
A recent review on Laterooms:
Long weekend in Kent
"My mum and I very much enjoyed our stay at The Old Barn. It is well placed for Great Dixter and Sissinghurst, and also for Canterbury. The room was beautiful and very quiet and the spacious separate bathroom was not an inconvenience, because it was for our use only. Breakfast was excellent - fresh fruit and full English - we hardly needed lunch! Thanks for a lovely stay :)"
