Wonderful family gathering
My extended family stayed here for a week to celebrate my parents wedding anniversary. There was plenty of room for us all, with the different bedrooms configured to suit each need. We had plenty of room, although the adults all seemed to end up gathering in the kitchen around the table. The children enjoyed playing outside in the garden, and the grown-ups enjoyed the wonderful surroundings of the carefully tended flower beds. I would definitely stay here again.

Group of friends with children - 40th Birthday Party
Beautiful specious property with a lot of character and games, so there is always something to do whatever the weather. The fairy lights around the garden only highlighted the cozy feel. The location is brilliant, surrounded by castles and beautiful nature. The property is perfect for any type of event but also for a relaxing retreat. The owner Richard is very easy to deal with and provided detailed description including the layout. We would definitely recommend for any type of stay.

The Perfect Venue for Our Wedding
My wife and I stayed here for a week in June 2016 for our wedding and week of celebrations. We all loved staying at Hoath House! We first visited Hoath House whilst searching for a wedding venue. The owner, Richard, was very helpful and informative both about the house and grounds but also gave us some helpful pointers on planning the wedding. We decided to book because we wanted a relaxed wedding for around 80 guests with freedom to plan it the way we wanted. Hoath House was perfect as there were few rules set out. For example there was no corkage fee, no restrictions on which suppliers we could use, and camping was allowed for up to 5 tents. On top of this there was lots of space for indoor seating and for the dancing. We decided that we would stay the whole week as it was the same price as the weekend only, which we thought was a fantastic deal. The wedding day was amazing, Richard coordinated with the caterer and other suppliers as well as our ushers to ensure the day went smoothly. Our caterer appreciated the facilities e.g. outdoor electricity, large kitchen, fridge space etc. We stayed on through the week and had the best time, everyone very much enjoyed the cosy Tudor wing and the enormous main building, full of historic features such as the inglenook. We all enjoyed the amazing gardens which seem to get a lot of attention as they were tended by gardeners on several days of the week of our stay. Everyone loved their room, and most of them had en-suites.The place was well stocked with everything we needed including garden furniture, bbqs, lawn games, books and board games. There was table tennis and a piano. All the mod cons were there including internet. The surrounding area was lovely with lots to do and see, in particular our Australian guests were very impressed. So all in all it was a great venue, and we would definitely recommend it.

A jewel amongst jewels in the heart of beautiful Kent.
I booked Hoath House to celebrate my retirement and 65th birthday with extended family and friends. From the moment we drove up to the house, through magnificently kept gardens, we could not fail to be impressed and delighted with our choice of venue! and the levels of delight continued to soar once we walked through the doors, the property is, to be frank, magnificent! We were a party of 14 adults and 3 children staying for the week, or part week, with a further 40+ guests joining us on Sunday to join in my actual birthday celebration, and the House easily accommodated the numbers with room to spare. I cannot praise this property highly enough, to do it justice one would have to actually see it! From the well equipped kitchen, the Dining Room, well decorated comfortable (huge) ensuite bedrooms, communal areas for relaxing, chatting or chilling out, to the games room with pool table and table tennis, and a tennis court in the garden, there is something for everyone, including games to play in the garden such as croquet, jenga, connect 4 and boule'. The owner, Richard, lives adjacent to the house and although he keeps a very low profile, he is on hand and available should you have any questions or queries, and Richard, a personal message, when I say to you " thank you for your service" I trust you know what I'm saying having read the book....!

It's a pity that the highest accolade I can give is "excellent" - it deserves far higher than that! Overall this property exceeded our highest expectations, we were a mixed party of an age range from 3 years to 80 years, celebrating my 65th birthday and retirement. Without exception everybody was catered for with regard to the facilities on offer in the house, garden and surrounding countryside. I can, and have recommended this property to friends and family.
