"Great 2nd stay - Would definitely Recommend - Had another great time"
Second year running we had a fantastic time again, fortunately the weather was better this year which meant we could enjoy our wine in the garden. Again Robert was a great host and the hot tub was always per-heated for us, ready to go.
Wet room and wifi are a fantastic additional to this already well equipped property .
As like last year The Barn was very clean and well equipped, Robert's suggestion that we do our shopping online and get it delivered on the day we arrived was a brilliant idea and meant we did not waste hours shopping.
This year we ventured to the local shop which was well equipped and also the butcher which was excellent value for money.
As we said last year excellent location for the seaside resorts, such as Deal, Whitestable and Herne Bay and also Canterbury itself.
Had we not explored the surrounding areas over the last two years we would have definitely booked next year.
We hope you find this review useful and take the opportunity to book this great property.

"Great value for an amazing property"
A group of family members and a few friends attending a wedding in the area arranged to take the opportunity to have a ten day stay. What a great place to stay. We often had extra people visiting and not once did we feel that we were on top of each other. Robert certainly was extremely helpful and very welcoming. The hot tub was certainly an added bonus and a true pleasure to be able to end our day with a session in the tub. This cottage is also situated very well to access the Kent Coast line or Canterbury and many of the historical sites around. I look forward to having a repeat of this lovely stay, hopefully in the not too distant future.

"Good Location, Excellent Accomodation and Hosts"
Fantastic central location to explore this part of the country.
We had a fantastic time, accommodation was very clean and very well equipped, we had everything we needed and all requirements had been catered for, from bottle opener (for the wine hic ) to tumble dryer for the towels after the hot tub. The hot tub itself was enjoyed by all and is a great asset to the barn.
We were pleasantly surprised by the quality and space of the Barn and how it had been refurnished and the quality of the finish.
It was good to have the hosts onsite, so they were available if needed but otherwise, left you to your own devices.
Robert and Dawn were very friendly and accommodating. Great home grown produce and we even took some home.
We are definitely planning a return visit next year.
We can think of only one minor improvement as we were a large party that the Barn would benefit from and that would be more sofa's in the lounge area to relax on after a busy day exploring and enjoying ourseleves.

"Excellent accomodation with amazing hot tub and great value for money!"
Myself and 10 friends stayed in white post Barn for my birthday weekend. We were really impressed by the great accomodation and the facilities available to us. We thoroughly enjoyed the use of the hot tub, BBQ and large living area which are perfect for big groups. The owners live next door which initially we thought may be a problem due to the noise etc but they were really relaxed and really helpful throughout our stay. I would definitely stay at White post again and would recommend to my friends and family.

"Outstanding property, delightful location, charming owner!"
My whole family have just had the most fantastic two week stay at White Post!
The property was spotlessly clean on arrival, and was superbly equipped throughout - even for a long stay such as ours for five people (including two young children). It lacked for nothing and the huge gardens around the barn were perfect for the children to play safely in.
The owner, Robert Morphett, is THE most charming, helpful person you could wish to meet. He was always available to assist in any way, whilst at the same time totally respecting our privacy.
Robert was also very generous in sharing with us his home grown fruit - delicious!
My two young children fell in love with Robert's dog Treacle - they miss her already - and I shall long remember my daughter's daily visits to see Robert's chickens, or ''the beautiful boys'' as she called them!
All in all a totally fabulous stay.
Already booked for next year - three weeks this time though!
