What our guests really think

Kent retreat   4.3/5
"Chestnuts house and barns were perfect size for our group. Our “even better if” would be: decent cooking pans to reflect number of guests; maybe curtains in the bedrooms to reduce sunlight in the mornings and most importantly decent garden furniture. The bench provided broke with two members of our family sitting on it - on inspection it was rotten through at the joints and unfortunately the concrete seating had a large crack so we avoided using that all week. The staff at Bloom Stays were very helpful with our booking and customer service and the owners were helpful on site. Would use again."

Great stay   4.8/5
"We booked this as a family holiday home for a week. The host was very accommodating. Everyone loved it. I would book this again. It's worth the money."

A wonderful family Christmas   4.7/5
"We stayed at the chestnuts from 23rd to 30th December. Our 3 children & partners & 4 grandchildren & a friend, it is the perfect house for a family get together. Unfortunately we could not book the weather, it rained the whole week, but the house is big enough to cope with us all. Paula & Martin (the owners) were very friendly & helpful if we needed anything."

Lovely house for a special 70th birthday surprise   4.2/5
"We had a lovely stay at Chesnuts. we had a small problem with the fridge not working when we arrived but the owners live accross from the house and helped us. The garden was great for the kids, had a hose so perfect for a paddling pool. All rooms were well equipped"
