We only stayed in the area for one night and our booking was based on trip advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. Excellent rooms with lots of attention to detail. A scrumptious breakfast clearly using fresh produce. A very comfortable stay. The property was spotless. The location of Woodpecker Barn is very rural, personally we feel that this adds to...

Such a peaceful location,beautiful gardens fantastic house. Very good value for money the breakfast was delicious all fresh and good quality ingredients, even the cutlery and crockery were high quality, you can feel that this establishment is run with care and pride. The rooms are clean and comfortable with quality bedding. We would definitely stay again if in the area.

Where can we start, well let' s start by saying everything is excellent about Woodpecker Barn. We visited Lamberhurst for a very special wedding and decided to stay for 3 nights after a close friend had recommended Woodpecker Barn to us. We were delighted with our choice. It is hidden out the way and very quiet, Halla and Martin are...

Rooms on upstairs floor are very comfortable and fairly large - yes, there are 3 including the bathroom, felt like an apartment to me instead of a "normal" single room or what you sometimes get as single occupancy. Whole house (former barn - therefore the name) is stylishly decorated. Lovely big and airy bathroom, extremely comfortable bed and beautiful garden...

A very rural band b, about 4 miles out of Lamberhurst. It was nice to have our own sitting room, with our bedroom below. Rooms were clean and well decorated. Breakfast included home made fruit juice, a fresh fruit salad and yoghurts, croissants and choice of a fully cooked breakfast. Our hosts were friendly and welcoming. Personally I found the...

Dear guests Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are sorry that one of you found the mattress a little hard - getting this right for everyone is just about impossible . Suffice to say that over the years the vast majority of comments on the bed have been highly favourable - ecstatic in some cases...

After a tiring and stressful working week in London, my husband and I were looking forward to our mini "staycation" at Woodpecker Barn. We weren't disappointed. As many reviewers have said before, Martin and Halla were the perfect hosts, and we loved the beautifully decorated interiors. The bed was extremely comfortable and we both fell asleep in no time shortly...

Warm and welcoming on a damp November visit, Woodpecker Barn lived up to every expectation my partner and I had. The previous excellent reviews from e.g. snodey and buttonbaggins say it all. Martin and Halla are charming, the Barn itself is so comfortable and peaceful that, as a base from which to visit stately houses, gardens and wonderful countryside, I...

The Woodpecker Barn (WB) is not your usual kind of B&B. My wife and I stayed here for three nights for our 25th wedding anniversary and what a lovely stay it was. This is not a hotel. Also the term B&B is a meagre description and an understatement for what is a beautiful converted barn and shared home. You are...
