The Parlour is a wonderful conversion of an old farm building. Three generations have farmed here for over 70 years and back in the 1950's it used to be a working milking parlour. Now you can enjoy modern day living with all the home comforts, in a beautiful part of Kent just below the Pilgrims Way in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The open plan living space opens up on to a terrace and gardens with huge bi-folding doors which really bring the outdoors in. After a busy day sightseeing you can enjoy the gardens to relax and chill, whilst the children play. Or snuggle up on the cosy sofas and enjoy a hot chocolate on a wintry day.

In the Area


Westwell is a pretty village 4 miles north of Ashford. It sits just below the Pilgrims Way in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The location is stunning, with vineyards and beautiful Kentish countryside surrounding you, yet within easy reach of road and rail connections. There is an abundance of things to see and do with countryside walks on your doorstep (including Pilgrims Way), Leeds Castle, Godinton House, Sissinghurst Castle and the South of England Rare Breeds Centre all within easy reach. Whilst staying if you fancy a trip to the stunning Kent coast then Hythe, Whitstable and Camber (East Sussex) are approximately a 30 minute drive away. If you fancy a day trip to London the fast train from Ashford every half an hour connects you to London St Pancras and takes 38 minutes. It is the perfect location to explore all that Kent has to offer.

Comfortable, spacious and modern 4.8/5

Really enjoyed our stay. Spacious, high quality kitchen area, cosy and comfortable throughout with underfloor heating, comfortable and clean beds, fabulous large shower. Very doggy friendly. The massive patio doors, patio/garden and outdoor furniture really added to our stay, as did the gorgeous uninterrupted views. Loved our trip. Hope to return.

A 5000 step escape.... 4.8/5

We needed to stay somewhere whilst our kitchen was being renovated. The Parlour, Jane and Trevor all lovely. All i would say is the sofas are very low down so expect that. Has absolutely everything you would need so don't delay, book today! PS the Lambing season is best! Took me back, quite emotionally to my childhood.

Lovely stay in Kent 5/5

Excellent customer service from Bloom and owner. Owner advised that we could arrive early which we really appreciated and met us on arrival to explain everything about the property. Lots of information about the local area in the welcome pack, along with a lovely panacotta, crisps and apple juice. Secure garden was great for our young dog - as were the dog biscuits the owner provided! Beds were really comfortable which was appreciated after a long drive to get there. A lovely 3 day break; a property we'd be happy to come back to!

Another lovely stay at the Parlour, we will be coming back again! 5/5

We stayed in the Parlour in August 2023, having stayed next door (Bull Pen) in 2022. The accomodation is amazing - clean, modern, very comfortable and well equipped. Location is excellent for peace and quiet, dog walks, and enjoying the lovely countryside. 5 stars!

Perfect family holiday 4.7/5

We booked the “Parlour” as our son had booked the “Bull Pen” next door and we had a very enjoyable family holiday. Everything had clearly been done to a high standard. We loved the space inside and the rural tranquility outside. Certainly we were able to see lots of Kent from a central location perfect for the seaside or historic attractions. The beds were very comfortable and everything we needed was provided in the kitchen and living area. We should have asked for the empty salt cellar to be refilled but have only ourselves to blame for not doing so… also as we are not in the first flush of youth we found the sofas comfortable but very low to the ground! Overall, we would love to return one day and would recommend the “Parlour” especially for families wishing to holiday together but remain independent!

Midweek break with my Mum 5/5

We had a great time. Our hosts were friendly and so helpful. The house was perfect for me and my Mum - very well appointed and beautifully decorated.

Perfect stay for our young family 5/5

We spent 6 nights here over Easter and it was just perfect. Lambs being born on the farm and daffodils everywhere! The owners were friendly and on-hand if we needed them, although the property did feel very private. The accommodation is brand new and incredibly spacious. The full height windows overlooking the secure garden meant our young son and dog could play outside and come and go as they pleased. The location was peaceful with some nice walks straight from the house. The surrounding villages were picturesque and we found plenty to do during our stay with day trips to Whitstable, Sandwich, Sissinghurst Castle (and other NT properties) and the Kent & East Sussex Railway being amongst our favourites! We'd love to come back one summer soon!
