    Barbara and David ‐ 8 Dec 2018
    "We stayed at Lily's Barn to attend a wedding at Cooling Castle Barn. Lily's Barn was the ideal location and in walking distance to the Venue. The barn was clean, beautifully presented, warm and cosy. Every need was catered for. We would certainly recommend it."

    "A gorgeous, spacious barn conversion. Nothing was overlooked or un thought of, with added little extras that really made this a home from home.Fresh eggs from Heather's chickens on arrival, plus biscuits, wine and dog treats.Outside is a panorama of fields - which our dogs Piper and Suzie loved to run free in!If you like peace and quiet, somewhere rural plus beautiful accommodation, then this is for you."

    "A great stay at Lily's Barn. Clean, comfortable and welcoming. Great pub lunch a short walk away, a lovely welcome basket provided by the hosts. We already want to go back!"

    "Best cottage we’ve stayed in. Couldn’t have asked for more 😁"

    "Country lanes from barn, really narrow, stressful going anyway. Also still dangerous walking them. Beautiful accommodation, but tree outside lounge window blocks sunlight."
    Ted ‐ 26 Aug 2018
    "Much enjoyed our week in this very well appointed and comfortable property with nice owners, located in a very quiet, attractive, rural spot well removed from the village and main roads, with excellent dog walks along a permissive bridleway which commences close by. With no livestock in the vicinity, dogs were able to trot along off lead. Rochester old town is very nice to visit, as are Whitstable, Herne Bay, Margate, and Canterbury. By far the best beach is Dymchurch on the South coast, lovely sand, views and blue sea, where the dogs had a good swim on the ample permitted area. A much appreciated welcome pack is provided, including white wine and fresh local eggs. In summary, a well recommended property."

    "Lily's Barn is lovely - we were only here for the weekend but would happily return for longer. Very comfortable and the welcome basket was very nice! Heather was extremely helpful."
    Stuar ‐ 18 Jun 2018
    "This is truly a golden find for those who want a get away from it all holiday. No road noise, no aircraft flying over head just green fields and peace and quiet. Lily's Barn is very well equipped and super clean. The owners, Heather and Alec are very nice and helpful, there if you want them or leave you alone when not needed, Nice basket of goodies when you arrive. Great for walking and very dog friendly with dog towels supplied at the front door. Everything you need for a nice break. Great holiday had by all."

    "My lads stayed for work, they said it was great and loved their time there."
    Andrea ‐ 21 Apr 2018
    "If you are looking for a peace and quiet Lily's Barn is the place. Plenty of walks on the doorstep, but easy drive to explore the surrounding Kent countryside and coastal towns and villages. Accommodation is spotless and very dog friendly, one of the best equipped we have stayed in. We stayed for a long weekend, all was just perfect and we highly recommend a visit and hope to return ourselves."
