  • "Lovely and clean but the bed is awfully soft and I had to leave early because my back ached and the sofa was ripped in a few places ."

    during the power outage there was no torch or candles to get out the house to get a torch. the listing on Sykes does not detail weddings and loud parties right outside your doorstep

  • "We stayed at Little Batts from 7th to 11th November this year."

    In your comprehensive welcome pack you request feedback both positive and negative Positive:       Beautiful and historic property in a lovely area of England       Welcome pack was very helpful       Bathroom is beautiful and kitchen well appointed (particularly loved the oven)       Great to have washing up liquid, hand wash, dishwasher tablets all provided       Lovely bedding on the bed       Awesome heating through out Negative:       Cleanliness Carpet in lounge area is visibly very dirty especially the large liquid stain in eyesight when on the couch. Maybe cream carpets is not a great choice. Couch cushion covers are ill fitting Embedded dead spider on the floor at the foot of the bed Large spiders web above window in lounge All these make the property feel generally grubby       Safety The step in the hallway is very dangerous especially with the same carpet on both levels. I fell quite badly within an hour of our arrival and twisted my ankle meaning I had to spend our first day with my leg elevated. (Not a great start to our holiday) Connecting door to The Barn is not lockable, but the door on their side is. One of the dining chair seats is only attached by 2 screws Back door was unlocked when we arrived. We have locked it.       Parking We parked outside the property in the lay-by as close as we could to the wall to ensure other vehicles could pass. When we went out one day the resident opposite had parked in such a way that we could not drive out and when we knocked on the door and asked her to move her car 1-2 metres forward she told us to "just reverse out'. While this was quite possible it was not a great interaction and left a bad taste.       General TV remote batteries were dead No welcome pack - tea, coffee, milk, sugar, couple of biscuits etc - After 36 hours travelling from Australia we couldn't even have a cup of tea when we got here. The bathroom is spa like and the large bath makes it feel like a romantic couples escape, but the bed is low,    average comfort and 2 single beds pushed together, which is not romantic The light around the mirror in the bathroom is quite fancy, but after 4 days we still hadn't worked out how to consistently control the light level or turn it on/off with confidence so we left it on all the time Overall while the property has great potential and some highlights we would rate it 1 out of 5 stars.

    Thanks for the positive points. We have addressed those areas we could improve. Many thanks. Hope to see you again at Little Batts. Best wishes Richard Property Owner

  • "The best relaxing holiday, the cottage was so comfy, cosy allowing us to be happy filling our days playing games and having days in."

    Could not recommend this place enough, have already been shouting about it since being home to friends and family.

  • "This was a lovely Barn to stay in and the pictures don't do the size justice."

    The only downsides I would say are we arrived late and it was pitch black and we couldn't find the Barn. There was no one to ask and not much lighting so it took us a while to find Little Batts. besides this we had a lovely stay.

Hidden amongst a mature garden on the Hoath Estate in Chiddingstone Hoath, Kent is Little Batts, a charming, single-storey barn conversion.

Perfect for a couple and a little one, this romantic retreat has a bright and airy living space and delightful garden to enjoy in the warmer months, along with handy off-road parking.

Step inside to find a fully fitted kitchen and ample dining space where you can impress your guests and catch up over dinner.

From here, sink into the sofa and settle down for the evening, and when it’s time to sleep, a plush king-size is waiting for you in the bedroom.

Completing the interior is a bathroom with a gorgeous deep bath you won’t be able to resist!

Outside, you can bask in the crisp morning air with a cup of coffee from the coffee maker in-hand.

When it's time to go exploring, head to Royal Tunbridge Wells, where you can stroll along The Pantiles or treat your other half to a light lunch at Juliet's Café or a traditional French dinner at Coco Retro, followed by a drink at Fuggles Beer Café.

For a day trip, visit nearby Chiddingstone Village, one of the oldest villages in England known for its glorious architecture, or stroll around the manicured grounds at Penshurst Place & Gardens.

Take the kids to Groombridge Place to explore the Enchanted Forest & Gardens, or leave them to play at Grosvenor & Hilbert Park while you watch on while enjoying a picnic.
