We've spent the past 2 nights here for a team event, what a perfect venue for both work & play. We all really enjoyed our time here and will definitely be back - bringing with us more of our team.
Thank you for a wonderful week and this magnificent setting for our wedding and family holiday. Loved the pool, hot tub and the tennis court, and we are all very sad to be leaving. Hope to be back again in the near future.
Thank you for a wonderful week of family get - together. This place is fabulous - everything the children could want, house is very beautiful and well stocked kitchen, pool & tennis court were great fun!
The weather was perfect, so altogether an epic week for us all!
Had an enjoyable week, been amazing, highly recommend it. Thank you for everything x
An amazing week-end for my 30th birthday. Friends and family having fun in these magnificent houses and outside. Thank you so much for helping making it possible Kim! I think I am going to remember these 3 days for a while... and everyone else as well.
What was suspected to be " just another " trip abroad....Dover Castle, Canterbury Cathedral, Beachy Head and Dickens world. Turned out to be a " wonderful" stay!
The difference between "just another" and "wonderful" is this Great Higham Barn!
This Barn became like our favorite summer jacket: we have to try it out every spring, over and over again.
And....just like the jacket, it will fit perfectly, over and over again.
Thanks for having us here -xx-
We have all had such a fab time. The bad weather was no problem - Hot tub > swimming pool and back to the hot tub! So much wonderful space inside - the children were never bored. The clay-pigeon shooting was thoroughly enjoyed. Everything is of such high quality - who would expect a food processor :-)
All mattresses comfortable - cannot fault anything.
We had my daughters 21st birthday celebrations at this wonderful barn and we all had an amazing weekend. Everything was just perfect . Have the best memories . Thank you so much :D

We had a fantastic time! The barn has so much space inside and outside. Our group consisted of family and friends, there was enough room for us to move around freely. Great dining table, seated all 20 of us comfortably.
Mrs K. A. October 2011
We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend the barn for family gatherings. All of my guests loved the house , the hot tub and the
quality of the great under floor heating, hot water, showers and facilities. Kim the housekeeper was also extremely friendly and accommodating. Thank You

We had a great time and were very satisfied with the property. The housekeeper was such a help to us before and during our stay. Would be good to have a larger tea pot.
