Pure Heaven\nThe owners have taken great care in creating a special home that is immaculately presented blending contemporary farmhouse living with a mix of reclaimed floor boards flagstone tiles exposed brick walls and period fireplaces.\nIf you can be pulled away from your family friendly retreat the nearby villages of Barham and Elham Valley are a short drive away home to a host of pubs and eateries and not forgetting the Cathedral City of Canterbury still within a 20 minute drive away."

    A fantastic service, with extremely helpful staff on the phone. Email communication in the lead up to the stay was excellent. The loss of one star is due to the fact that only 2 of the 3 bedrooms were made up when we arrived. I am not sure if that is Mulberry’s fault or the owner’s, but I had to contact the owner on arrival to get the linen cupboard opened up and make up the extra bed myself. We were a party of 2 adults and two (teenage) children and would not normally expect to have to specify that we need 3 bedrooms. A wonderful property that lives up to the photographs! Very spacious and filled with light; done up to a high standard. A little bit of extra housekeeping needed, eg replacing quite a number of lightbulbs, missing cutlery basket in the dishwasher etc but nothing that detracted from a wonderful stay. As mentioned elsewhere in my review, we were surprised that only 2 of the 3 bedrooms were made up on arrival. We certainly did not specify that we only wanted 2, so an assumption has been made somewhere. My children are teenagers (one boy, one girl) and do not share a room. However, I would imagine that most people with 2 children of any age would like to have the option to put them in separate bedrooms if they wish, not have the decision made for them! I was able to contact the owner who opened up the linen cupboard for me so that I could make up the extra bed myself, so all was sorted quickly.

    Service was excellent. More (digital) payment options for overseas customers would be convenient The cottage is absolutely stunning and very nicely renovated to a modern standard. The garden is very big and great for relaxing or running around in. The play area downstairs is a big added bonus for children. The beds and bathrooms were comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. Things to be aware of: internet is very slow and intermittent. Although most rooms are fitted with modern TVs, don’t expect to be watching any Netflix during your stay. Also, Hill House Farm is set among other - working - farms. This can be seen, heard and smelt on occasion.

    Everything we received was clear and whar we had to do was easy. The farmhouse was very warm and welcoming. The decor was to a high standard which we all found very comfortable. There was plenty of space for the grandchildren. In fact, one of them wanted to stay there and make it their home. Roger, the bull, was an added attraction.

    The cottage was fantastic. Really beautifully decorated and well appointment and in a stunning location. The service from Mulberry was very efficient. The customer service could have been more personalised e.g. A courtesy call before the booking to check that we had all the information we needed. It was all done over email. One of the best rental properties I have stayed in. The owners have done such a beautiful job renovating this listed farm house. The views are glorious and it was lovely for the children having the highland cattle in the adjacent field. That said, the garden isn’t particularly child friendly. There is a pond which has been fenced off but there is also another pond/ditch which is hidden behind trees. Worth noting if you have small children. The playroom space was great although does smell slightly of damp. The kitchen had all the utensils we needed and there was plenty of fridge and freezer space. There wasn’t a spare cupboard for food which would have been useful. We tried lighting a fire but it made the room above smell strongly of smoke, not sure if we were doing something wrong. The house is so well heated by underfloor heating that we didn’t need it. The beds weee comfortable and the bathrooms new and well appointed. There was no soap in the loos or bathrooms so we had to buy this. Overall it’s a wonderful place for a family get together in a beautiful part of the country.

    The house was beautiful. We got all the information we needed to ensure an easy start and end to the holiday. Could not have asked for better. Amazing property. Comfortable home in an idyllic setting meaning really there was little need to go anywhere. We could stay and enjoy our surroundings.

    We had a great time at Hill House Farm. It was the perfect venue for a family reunion - comfortable, bright, well-equipped and homely. Lots of happy memories.

    Our stay over new year was extremely pleasent. The gentleman that owns the property was very friendly and helpful. Beautiful views and a dream home! Totally reccommend. Everything was beautifully clean. Babies cot was immaculate & all the little things thought of. Lovely stay. Just a shame my husband was in bed with flu all week! Although rural very short drive to everything, even attending a walk in center & being transfered to hospital with my 5 month old baby was very easy on a Saturday on new years eve!

    Good Stunning place, gorgeous cottage with superb facilities. Just one thing, it sleeps only 6. No place for kids... Basement for 2 very young kids is not ideal especially when it’s full of cobwebs, spiders and even snails. Please advertise for 6 adults and a baby as there was baby cot in master bedroom. Otherwise it was a very very pleasant experience.

    Really good company to deal with. Efficient, polite. Even contacted me after our departure to ask if they could post on an item we’d left behind. Fantastic house in a beautifully peaceful and scenic location. Family has given big thumbs up for a swift return.

    Good website and good call back service Beautiful house with loads of room..went with a small child who loved running round the garden. Very well equipped house...only suggestion would be to provide stair gates on request. Had a great time and would return.

    Excellent service start to finish although I am still waiting for a call back from somebody to see if we can book again for next year as the website says at the moment it can only be booked minimum 7 days and wondered if you could email the owner? Beautiful house although we all though it was looking a little tired compared to last year and that was after the price had been increased quite considerably.
