"We had a wonderful time in the Redfern Barn. Very relaxing environment, and the kids really enjoyed meeting the donkeys. The Barn was ready to live in, so tidy and clean with nice facilities. Thank you."

"We are definitely going to return after an amazing weekend. Thank you for leaving us things such as milk, eggs and bread. It made the stay that much nicer. Once again, we will 100% return to Redfern! Thank you so much!"

Joe & Megan - January 2016

"Thank you for the lovely, welcoming Barn. On pulling up we saw the Christmas tree - lovely. The Barn was a delightful place to have a romantic break away. The facilities were top notch and the welcome pack was wonderful, such a nice touch. It's so easy to explore local places: Wye, Ashford and Canterbury. The donkeys are so friendly. The fireworks on New Year's Eve were a lovely surprise, as was gazing at the stars from bed! Thank you once again."

Ruth & Darren - January 2016

"Thank you, Sue, for an amazing stay, the barn is a real treasure - not least for how well kitted out it is. We had a great time in the area and a comfortable stay at Redfern Barn - with a special mention to the sound insulation as we didn't even notice the nearby railway!"

Will - November 2015

"Thank you for a lovely weekend!"

Amy & Gary - October 2015

"Dear Sue, Many thanks for your kind hospitality and the lovely and immaculate Redfern Barn. The house is a perfect place to relax and to explore from. We had a really wonderful few days and we hope to be back. The walk to Wye was lovely and easy. It also allowed us to easily catch the train to Canterbury and enjoy dinner at the Flying Horse before returning home. The outside space is excellent and beautiful as we were lucky to have some excellent weather! Many thanks, again. I'm sure we'll be back, and we will certainly recommend to friends and family!"

Mike & Kirsten - August 2015

"Thank you very much for your hospitality in the lovely Redfern Barn. We've had both a relaxing and a thrilling week! Relaxing while walking along the Stour River, or to the devil's kneeling through, or in the footsteps of Jane Austen. Thrilling hours were spent in Canterbury, Rochester and in the many, many churches all around Kent. We love this country and we surely wish to return soon. Dear Sue, thank you for your kind words each day, and for the many delicious and attentive gifts we received, such as eggs, bread, beans and potatoes. Indeed, we had a lovely stay here, thank you very much."

"If Kent is the Garden of England, this is the Garden of Holiday Homes. It is one of the most beautiful places we have ever stayed."


"We spent a wonderful week at Redfern Barn and had lots of fun – thank you for your warm hospitality we do not want to go home!"
