Beautiful old house with ample room for all fifteen of us
Swimming pool was enjoyed every day
Mr Booth, July 2020
Cleaning was not up to scratch and was not helped by previous occupants leaving an hour late.. Was addressed by owner, but with Covid19, left us feeling uncomfortable and we ended up sanitising everything to our own acceptable standards.
Mr Harvey, July 2020
We had a wonderful weekend at Hoath House (Tudor Wing).. The house had a wonderful feel and was well stocked with everything you would need. It was perfect for our 50th wedding anniversary celebration.
Miss Blake, February 2020
I was disappointed not to be able to get in before 3pm and then had to be out by 10am.. I felt we ‘lost’ a day of our break. I realise there must be a turn around time but I felt 3pm -12noon would have been better or 2pm-12noon even better. A team can easily get through a property to change beds, clean bathrooms, kitchen etc and vacuum through in 2hours., the team size needs to be appropriate to the size of property, though.
Tudor Wing was really comfy, but tired. Lots of leaks going on but the weather has not helped this beautiful old property. Nothing worried us unduly. However, sitting room furniture was a little careworn but again, I appreciate that as dogs are permitted, it is never going to be pristine.
For us in particular, the Friday, earlier would have been great as most left on Sunday to get children to bed for school on the Monday and in this particular instance, the rest left by 8.50 to get people to the airport for flights so 10am out was not a problem, except I spent the evening after majority vacated, checking their rooms and packing up what we could before departure. So, an earlier ‘in’ on Friday would have given us all a little more time together.
Dog aspects were brilliant, walks etc..the gardens delightful despite all the recent rain.
Mrs Taylor, February 2020
This was a family celebration of 17 with various ages (7 - 80).. It was a quirky place, with plenty of space for the younger children to play hide in seek, for the bigger children their was the games room and a fantastic lounge for the old/older people to relax in. Used all facilities including the swimming pool, but unfortunately due to storm Ciara a leisurely walk around the property was out of the question, although three members did venture out for a short time.
Mrs Mills, February 2020
As a large group of old university friends now with little people we need a big place to stay.. The tudor wing was perfect. The communal areas were a great size, the kitchen was well stocked and have plenty of fridges to accommodate all the food and wine! The hosts did a number of really helpful touches like providing the basics and they were on hand and really prompt with anything further needed. We loved it and would definitely cone back.
Mrs Easlea, December 2019
Brilliant place for a family/friend celebration, the character of the Tudor Wing is amazing and we had a wonderful four days over New Year.. Would definitely recommend it.
Mrs Leonce, December 2019
Fabulous venue for a multi generation family get together.. Lots of lovely walks around and the heated pool in December was fantastic!
Mrs Rath, January 2020
An absolute amazing place, very comfortable, with everything you need for a stay.. Accommodated 12 adults, 5 children and 2 dogs very easily. Beautiful grounds and in a brilliant location. Definitely want to come back!
Mrs Gosse, December 2019
The property was very spacious and provided a wonderful venue for a large gathering.. .. the formal dining room was an excellent place to eat, the sitting room was a great place to relax and chat and the games room was an added bonus. It was a real privilege to stay in the Tudor wing... atmospheric and comfortable with remarkable views of the beautiful local countryside.
I wish we had more time available to explore the extensive grounds and avail of the pool and tennis courts. Lots to see and do in the local area...
Mrs Tyson, October 2019
We had a wonderful week to celebrate my 65th birthday - with 17 sitting down to dinner for the first half of the week ( including 8 children) - perfect.. The 2nd half was spent with family friends. Richard was kind and helpful! The children want to go back to’Nanna’s fun house) as it was perfect for them (all aged 8 to 3) with a piano to play
Heffernan, November 2019
The Tudor Wing was really nice and Richard was very informative and we had a lovely tour of all the house which was really interesting..
Mrs Hennessy, October 2019

Mrs Peters, September 2019
A great place to stay for a family holiday, the facilities meant that there were plenty of activities to entertain various ages including 6 teenagers, a couple of younger folk, 4 parents and a couple of grandparents.. We were blessed with warm dry weather so the pool was very popular, the surrounding area was fine for watching the wet ones. I think the Sykes description suggests there is work outstanding to complete the surrounding area, but it was fine.
The tennis court is rather stony but again it is OK for a casual game. The indoor table tennis table was another favourite for us. There was an ample supply of other games and kit, much of which we did not get to use. I guess we may have used more if the weather had been cold or wet.
I don’t think it gets a mention in the details, but there was a barbeque, with fire lighters and matches supplied. The garden by the Tudor wing is supplied with garden chairs and tables.
The grounds and gardens are extensive, attractive and well kept with plenty of space for outdoor games.
An interesting and comfortable house. The owners, who are most helpful and friendly, live in the grounds, which is a bonus.
Mrs Evans, July 2019
The photos don't show just how beautiful the Tudor Wing is and all of our party of 15 loved the place immediately.. The kitchen was well stocked with equipment and utensils (though one tiny suggestion would be to have some bigger bowls) but otherwise it had more than I could have ever expected.
I booked this place for my sister's hen and I'm so glad I did because this place was the perfect setting for a weekend away with beautiful surroundings, great local attractions (we went to Hever Castle) and of course the pool which was one of the many highlights of our stay here. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms clean and apart from a spider or two we were all happy with the rooms.
Richard was so helpful and even put away our food order as we got stuck in traffic and always replied promptly to my emails and calls making my experience such an easy and pleasant one.
I will definitely be recommending it to friends and hope to visit again.
Mr Grundy, August 2019
This is a beautiful old Tudor house, although the inside is very tired.. Our guests commented the beds were not very comfortable. The outside space off the kitchen was in need of a lot of attention, there was a broken table and one chair and a broken down old shed, also the rotary washing line was broken and unusable! The garden to the front of the house was very pretty and well kept. The swimming pool was kept well and all the children enjoyed this (the holiday would not have been good without this facility) The kitchen was very well equipt and had everything we needed. There was a broken window in one of the back rooms which had been boarded up with cardboard and was large enough for someone to climb through (which left some people sleeping uneasily) The two top bedrooms had an unusually large amount of wasps flying around, it didn't seem to make any difference if the windows were open or shut we could not get rid of them, we therefore didn't use these rooms!!
Miss Sivasanthiran, July 2019
It was such a classic and beautiful property, we had the best time ever and will fully recommend it and will come back again soon.. Richard the land lord was so welcoming and very helpful.
Mrs Ayling, May 2019
Really lovely old Tudor building.. Had everything we needed. The pool and games room were a big for the younger members of the family. Well located for Bewl water, Bedgebury Pinetum, Knole park, Hever Castle, High Rocks, so much to do. The owner Richard was really helpful. Had a wonderful week here.
Mr Khougani, June 2019
Lovely qwerky Tudor house with everything needed for a big family party.. Beds were all extremely comfortable and the rooms large, airy and clean. Plenty of kitchen equipment with a large walk in pantry. We all had a lovely time.
One suggestion would be to replace the outside table and chairs which were very rickety. As the weather was good we did eat outside and this wasn't the best table to use. Otherwise a super 80th birthday break with all the family.
Fabulous setting and a wonderful property for a large family gathering..
Had a lovely weekend break away.. Richard (owner of property) was very welcoming. Excellent bedrooms. Lots of plates and cutlery, glasses, baking trays etc, if I was to make one tiny criticism perhaps a few middle size bowls and a measuring jug or gravy boat (we had to use a large teapot for our gravy!). This is a very small and intended as a constructive criticism. This was a birthday celebration and it was everything we hoped it would be, and who would have thought that we would have been using an outdoor swimming pool at the beginning of March!
We have just returned from a wonderful week in the Tudor Wing.. We were a group of 16, across three generations including kids and teenagers. We found the house charming and quirky, full of character. The owner Richard was very welcoming and made sure everything went smoothly for us. If we had a problem, he responded immediately. We enjoyed the very generous welcome hamper we had been left. Our favourite room in the house was the cosy lounge which we all fitted in and were able to enjoy the piano, wood burner and the large coffee table which easily accommodated every board game we brought with us. Even though it was February, we enjoyed the swimming pool, finding it a really pleasant temperature, and with the roof over we felt we were indoors. The only problem was we didn't want to get out as it was a very 'nippy' walk back to the house. (We all wished we had brought flip flops to make this little trek easier). The games room was another bonus to the house. Table tennis, pool and skittles were enjoyed by all and the large TV in this room with sky sports was an unexpected surprise for the sports fans amongst us. Overall we were all extremely pleased with our stay. We couldn't have picked a better place to spend time with extended family. It really felt like such a relaxing holiday. We would all like to return again.
The house was spacious, some rooms had low ceilings however.. The shower and bathrooms were very nice , there were plenty of towels. Over all well kitted out with everything you would need. We were warned about the fire alarm going off when cooking and this was a concern! The largest tv was in the play/snooker room, which we felt was a mistake as in the lounge there was only a small one and we had to move the sofa around to see it. We had 4 little children in our party and the outside grounds were lovely for them to run around but there were a few sets of steep steps to negotiate.
The pool which I had some trouble finding out exactly what it was like, was very disappointing. It was winter but I had been led to believe we could still use it. This was not the case as the cover was very low so you could not stand up and the changing room was only a shed!
Again as it was winter ,the upstairs was very cold. We did have a very enjoyable weekend.
Richard the owner was very helpful and on hand.
Everyone in the party thoroughly enjoyed their visit.. the children:one ten and two eleven year olds, used the pool table and swimming pool and loved it.
We gathered as a family to celebrate a 70th Birthday, and had a wonderful Week-end at "Tudor Wing" Chiddingstone.. There is a great deal of history to the place (which was well documented) and the owner who lives on the site was extremely
helpful and welcoming. The large Dining Room was ideal for all the family to gather round for celebration meals and
we could all fit comfortably in the big sitting room with its attractive log burner : great ! We enjoyed long walks in the
surrounding countryside and all gathered in a wonderful nearby Pub, "The Rock" for Sunday lunch.
The house was well equipped and spacious, though it took a little time to find all the rooms and sometimes it was
important to remember to bend low through doorways for the taller members of the family. We enjoyed the games
Room and the Swimming Pool. In short, a wonderful historic home for an ideal family Week-end, and we thoroughly
recommend the Tudor Wing to anyone : Thank you : We had a great time and a wonderful; Family Week-end away !
Wow, what a wonderful time we had at the Tudor Wing.. 6 granddaughters racing around this lovely house, they had a go at the piano and swings, played hide and seek, swam in the pool and generally exhausted themselves and all the adults who also tired themselves out with long country walks to enjoy the fabulous views.
The house was perfect for the family celebration we had hired it for, it is relaxed, comfortable and has a cosy feel despite being spacious. The beds are comfortable and the owner Richard was very friendly and helpful. We had a very nice lunch at the Kentish Horse pub where the children had fun in the playground after we had eaten. All in all a brilliant weekend and thoroughly to be recommended.
I rented The Tudor Wing of Hoath House for 3 nights to celebrate my 60th birthday in December.. There were 15 of us altogether. The property was perfect for the occasion & we all had a wonderful time. My 3 ‘boys’ in their twenties & thirties even made use of the outdoor pool on the 18th of December! We met the owner, Richard, who couldn’t do enough for us & made us feel really at home. The property is near lots of attractions & we had a family outing to Hever Castle. I would recommend the property 100%.
The Tudor Wing was a delight, labyrinthine with a great sense of history ably expended upon by the owner Richard who could not have been more helpful.. We enjoyed an early morning swim in the pool, temperature was ideal and the chlorine level low. The dining room made for most convivial meals and the lounge was most comfortable, the piano a treat and overall cleanliness, excellent. To top all that, the local pub, The Rock served excellent food in a fine setting, friendly locals and great local beer. Walking and cycling both grand but recommend wellies for the former at this time of year.
The oven was not working.. We hired the house for a Christmas family get together and the plan was to cook a Christmas dinner. We had to use one small oven as the main oven failed to heat up.
The cleanliness of the house was very poor. We had to rewash all of the glasses plates and cooking equipment. There was rubbish at the front of the house and the floors and carpets were filthy. This house needs a deep clean.
The ensuite shower rooms are tiny and unable to use by the men in the party.
It is such a shame because the house could be beautiful. The owner just needs to keep on top of maintenance and house keeping.
Also you advertised a heated pool. The pool was not heated and led to one of the children having an asthma attack due to the cold.
On a positive note the owner was very polite, the beds were comfortble. The house was well equipped just unorganized and dirty.
The surrounding area and local pub was great.
We would stay again if the few faults were met.
Wonderful property, beautiful scenery, lovely rural location.. Stunning features. Desperately need steps leading up to property looked at as they were slippery also needs a sensor light in the driveway for when cars are leaving at night as it was difficult to menouvre out of the property.
This was a lovely family break.. Perfect for a large family get together, Grandparents, children and grandchildren. We could relax in a comfortable homely atmosphere. This was our second visit to the Tudor Wing and we would definitely return.
I originally booked Hoath House for a week in order to celebrate my partners 50th birthday and was going to have a surprise party on the first Saturday of that week.. I was contacted by the owner of the property who informed me that Sykes cottages had double booked Hoath House for the same week. As my booking was taken after the first I was informed that my booking could not be honoured. At no point did Sykes cottages contact me to apologise for this. The owner offered me the Tudor wing but could not offer it for the weekend I required for the surprise party so all my plans had to be cancelled.
I think it might be a good idea for their cleaning team to look behind the piano! A bit of mould in bathrooms and the cafetieres were not functionable (someone had removed the filters without telling the owners)
Beds were really comfortable - house was lovely and warm and the three fridges and a chest freezer were an extra benefit. Loved the tv in each bedroom - real luxury. It would, however, have been very much appreciated if we could have driven the car up to the back door in order to load everything before going home. I realise this would have been through the 'private' section but it would only have been for one hour and would have saved
our backs tremendously as we had a lot of stuff to take home.
Otherwise - and these are really only niggles - we had a lovely time.
The house was lovely in a beautiful setting But we had issues with the .... The house was lovely in a beautiful setting But we had issues with the cleanliness One of the duvet covers had a blood stain another was torn I don’t think that the tennis court should have been advertised for use
THE PROPERTY WAS NOT CLEANED VERY WELL, THERE WERE WEEKS WORTH OF COBWEBS ALL OVER THE PLACE.. THERE WERE STAINS ON THE LIVING ROOM CARPETS AND THE ON SUITE BEDROOM. THE GARDEN WAS VERY OVERGROWN AND THE PREVIOUS PEOPLE HAD LEFT BIRTHDAY CONFETTI ALL OVER THE GARDEN TABLE AND GRASS AROUND IT WHICH WE HAD TO CLEAN UP AS WE HAD A SMALL CHILD WITH US WHO TRIED TO EAT IT. AFTER READING PREVIOUS REVIEWS WE WERE VERY DISAPPOINTED
The Tudor wing wing was an ideal location for a weekend family gathering & celebration.. The house is very comfortable, spacious and well equipped. The games room and outdoor swimming pool were a great success as was the garden and outdoour dining with a barbeque. We recommend Chiddingstone for the local sight seeing - Hever Castle and Royal Tunbridge Wells and it is also nearby a good selection of golf courses...
WE celebrated our 60th wedding anniversary and my 80th birthday we were a party of 14 ranging from 9 to 83 it was perfect for all ages the comfort for the older members the games room and the swimming pool were greatly used by the younger ones it was in fact a perfect weekend..
We had an amazing Golden Wedding celebration at the Tudor Wing of Hoath House.. So nice to be able to have our family altogether in such a beautiful house in lovely Kent countryside. The house was exactly as I had imagined it to be, warm, comfortable, plenty of room for everyone, dogs included. Best of all I loved the sense of history of the building, it made it so special. Richard was very welcoming, with many little extras included. The children had fun in the swimming pool, and the games room especially kept them busy. Thank you for everything.
Ideal for a big family get-together.. The children had fun playing hide and seek. Level, safe garden and patio.
I could not have asked for a better location to hold my 30th birthday party! The only downside was that it had to end!! The house is amazing, and all the bedrooms were of equal quality and all good sizes, so there was no squabbling over who would be sleeping where. The living room was really cozy with a good sound system and a lovely log burner so we spent a lot of time in there. I was worried the house might be cold as it's so huge, but it was really lovely and cozy the whole weekend and the showers were hot and good water pressure. The dining area was ideal for a big sit down dinner and there were fairy lights already hung which really added to the ambiance. I cannot say enough good things about this house!! The only advice I can give to those going there was bring your own bathmats and extra toilet paper as those were the only things missing that I wasn't expecting. Thanks so much Richard for having us, I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a weekend getaway in amazing surroundings.
A wonderful location for country walks and pub lunches.. The house was beautiful and everyone (kids, adults, dogs) had such a lovely time. Cosy nights by the fire just set it all off a treat.
We enjoyed all the facilities in and around the Tudor Wing of Hoath house - the garden ,swings and tennis court and would like to return sometime..
Mrs Robinson, October 2017
Our room at the top had no wardrobe, it was opposite a bathroom, a cheval mirror was outside, so it would have been great to have had a little rail outside too, to hang clothes on.. Also, we couldn't find the metal bin outside the kitchen, for the ashes from the wood burning stove.
Other than that, we all had a lovely time. The beds were very comfy. We slept well.
Mrs Parker, October 2016
We had a wonderful week in Tudor Wing.. The house was amazing and in such a beautiful setting. Everything about it more than matched our expectations, the rooms were very comfortable, well equipped and provided everything we needed. A perfect place for our special family gathering.
Mrs Skelton, November 2016
We had a lovely family weekend at the Tudor Wing with all our family.. This is a beautiful old house and perfect for a large family get together. The house was warm, comfortable and relaxing. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could think of and we cooked all our evening meals at home with no problem. The beds were lovely, so comfortable and everybody enjoyed their stay. This is a beautiful area with plenty of lovely walks. We hope to return next year.
It was amazing, I loved the fact the property was big enough for my family. Everything was wonderful.
Mrs Stoner, June 2016
Tudor Wing was a rather beautiful Tudor Building in the Kent countryside, that is part of a larger estate which includes a mock Tudor Edwardian house attached to the older Tudor Building.. We stayed in the Tudor building it was lovely. It was very clean and had all the amenities we required. All the rooms were spacious and very clean. We were very impressed and would be happy to recommend it to anyone thinking of staying there.
Mr Karley, October 2016
It was amazing, I loved the fact the property was big enough for my family.. Everything was wonderful.
A lovely rambling property with a lovely, well established garden, perfect for a large celebration. The bedrooms were light and airy with very comfortable beds. There was a well equipped games room which provided lots of entertainment. The kitchen had every utensil you could need and plenty of cupboard and fridge/freezer space.

I used this house for two nights and it was nothing short of perfect.. The house itself has been owned by the family for centuries and therefore is in wonderful condition. The rooms were all beautiful and the kitchen was large and spacious with vast amounts of storage and pantry space. The grounds surrounding the house are some of the most beautiful in Kent so it's worth packing some trainers to go exploring. I cannot say enough good things about this house. It was amazing value for money and so quirky and beautiful inside.

The warm welcome from the owner was the perfect beginning of our holiday.. He was thoroughly charming and keen to ensure we had a good and comfortable holiday. We had a wonderful family time together. We loved the location and the house with all it's quirky, original character was amazing. It was as if we'd been there before. We plan to return some time.
