We received a very warm welcome from the family and staff, who always went out of their way to help us with everything we needed and who made us feel very much at home. Comfortable room, great breakfast, and for the children, the most important thing were the two ponies living on the farm whom they could play with every morning and evening. Also, it was great to be able to have our clothes washed and dried whenever requested. All in all, it was a very enjoyable and relaxing stay. Thank you to everyone in Iffin Farmhouse for making it so special!
The biggest problem for us was the location, because of the distance from Iffin Farmhouse to Canterbury. By car, it is just a few minutes drive from or into town, but without a car, the location is problematic. Walking into town will take about 45 minutes, but with small children, it is more likely to be 90 minutes. Also, it is not a really enjoyable and relaxed stroll through the country side, because you have to walk all the time on the side of narrow roads, and watching out for the many cars passing. In the end, we had to take a taxi every morning and evening. The taxi drivers gave us a discounted fare and were very friendly and helpful, but having to take the taxi on a daily basis proved to be rather costly.
Dinner at Iffin was a very nice home-made meal and it is great to have this as an option when you are tired and don't want to eat out. However, there are many cheaper options and/or very good restaurants in Canterbury.
