We stayed at the Kingshill Farmhouse on the Elmley Nature Reserve in early December 2019. The farmhouse has been recently renovated and it was a superb choice for a big family party (ten adults and four children) spread over a long weekend. Even in the house we never felt cramped and of course there is a fantastic area for walking that really is on your doorstep. The kitchen was brilliantly equipped for self-catering (three ovens, two dishwashers!), there were three sitting rooms for people who wanted to do their own thing, a dining room that would seat twelve, and stunning bedrooms with luxurious bathrooms en-suite. We were all impressed by the attention to styling and detail and the owners had paid. We were unable to find fault with this wonderful place.
