House was fantastic, and many thanks to the owners for a lovely stay. Our group had a great weekend away, and we will certainly consider Higham Farmhouse again for future events!
Great company. Friendly staff. Answered questions about property as if they knew the house.
Beautiful house helped to make the occasion of our sons wedding really perfect.
What a wonderful spot to explore the Kent coast. The house is wonderful, very comfortable and refurnished to a high standard. We enjoyed dining outdoors and watching the calves at play

I have stayed on this farm, and I can testify that it is very comfortable and extremely well equipped. It is also a real haven of peace and tranquility, with wonderful rural views.
I have enjoyed watching birds and have been impressed by the variety that there are to see.
Higham Farmhouse is set in a wonderful area, with historic sites ranging from the Roman sites at Dover and Richborough to marvellous villages like Fordwich and Sandwich, very near by.
Higham Farmhouse is the place for a very happy holiday at any time of the year, but it is especially good in the summer, when meals outside on the patio are a special treat.
