We stayed here for a long weekend which was our summer holiday for this year. We needed to get away from the hustle and bustle of the last few months to just relax and reenergise. We made a last minute booking for one of the self-catering units. To ensure Covid-19 safety all communication was by phone and text messages. Despite our last minute booking the owners were able to get us some provisions for breakfast, which were delicious. The units were spacious, clean, warm and quiet.we had everything we needed to relax. The location was brilliant. Despite being in the countryside we only had five minutes to drive to a supermarket and also for the Canterbury Park & Ride. Whitstable is only half an hour away, so is Margate and Ashford Designer Village, Leeds Castle. We would definitely recommend Iffin Farmhouse and will be back again as there is still lots to see in the area.

Just stayed for one night and I can honestly say the accommodation, location and service was just wonderful. Everything was clean, spotless and well organised. Although it rained we loved looking out to the open field , the smell of lavender drifting into barn and the morning alarm of the farms cockerel. Would highly recommend a stay in the barn.

Only here for a night to see son at university but it was most enjoyable midweek stay. Good breakfast with very reasonable choice. I would imagine this is a great location for families in the summer and a popular choice. It was good to see the sheep as we approached the property and a glimpse of the resident cats. The use of Molton Brown shower gel etc was a nice bonus as I appreciate the cruelty free credentials ( and quality) of this brand. Very friendly and approachable hosts were a bonus.

A beautiful location, easy distance to Canterbury, with clean and comfortable rooms. Most importantly, the people are really lovely, make a mean cooked breakfast and can draw excellent maps to Sandwich
