‘Celebrating an early Thanksgiving, we wanted a house where our friends could come together, hang out, eat well and make the best of the Kent countryside. At Lower Standen Farmhouse we were all to do and enjoy all of these things. The house has been beautifully restored with the prize going to the wonderful kitchen/dining room. Surrounded by glass overlooking the lush garden, the views and colours are an ever-changing joy with the underfloor heating meaning that we spent most of our time here. No lonely feelings for our chef..... she probably had more help this year than ever before! Bedrooms were comfortable - we could maybe have done with one more shower room (being 8 adults), but this is a very minor thing, just meant some people got even more of a lie-in. The hosts had left extra wood for our use in the garage, so we were also able to thoroughly enjoy the big open fireplace in the sitting room. Finally, we loved our walk over the fields to the Windmill (along marked footpath). We walked back on the road via the Swan pub for a cheeky half pint before turkey. All in all, we had a fantastic time and would very happily come back..... maybe a summer trip with some swimming and table tennis on the menu! Thank you to Bloom Stays and our hosts.’
