Thanks to Kim and Great Betley Farmhouse for making our wedding the best day of our lives.
The venue more than exceeded our expectations, with the open views of the downs, beautiful views across the pond to wild farm fields around the barns. We had the flexibility to really make it our own, feel personal and private. 
Most of all it really felt like from a home from home, from Kim’s hospitality staying over in the farmhouse for our close family to providing a gourmet dinner for the bridal party the night before the wedding.
It was a pleasure to have Kim’s support pulling the wedding together and relaxing to work with an organised friendly venue. 
Thanks so much, can we do it all over again!

On the Friday evening we were pleased to host the rehearsal dinner for Fi & Josh’s wedding the following day. Lovely @stewart_the_celebrant took the wedding party through their paces so that they knew what to expect the next day before dinner. We set tables out by the pond, decorated them with citronella candles in pretty blue and white tins that coincidentally matched the crockery, solar powered festoon lights and pretty wine bottles with fairy lights in them. Beautiful flowers by the bride’s sister completed the simple but attractive look. Sun brollies were put up over the tables to help keep in the warmth from the patio heaters later on. There wasn’t a breath of wind and everyone said that they felt like they could have been somewhere Mediterranean – it certainly had a Mama Mia vibe! The perfect end to a long day of wedding prep and a perfectly chilled start to the wedding celebrations.



Nicky & Kel’s wedding was full of joy, love and colour, here’s what they had to say afterwards: 

“Wow what an amazing day we had! It was so so good.  We couldn’t have imagined a more perfect day, or a more perfect place to have it. You have been exceptional throughout and couldn’t have made it more easy or lovely for us!”

The drone footage below was taken by their friend Paul, I think it looks just as amazing at night as during the day!



Dear Kim

Thank you for all the hard work that you put in to making our wedding a special and amazing occasion. It all began with a Zoom call of the farmhouse and fields. We knew your venue was the ideal place for us and it was even more perfect when we finally got to see it once the Covid restrictions had eased!

We are very grateful for being very accommodating to our families and making sure that we were all well fed before and after the ceremony in the morning.

Thank you for all the hard work on the day itself – getting tractors to pull out stuck trucks, lending your kitchen for late-night chips and generally making sure that everything ran smoothly so that we could have a stress free day.

Good luck with all your future weddings, we know they’ll be in good hands!

Thank you again

“Kim’s place is a real gem. Traditional farmhouse with beautiful views and so well located for the South Downs. We were very well looked after, breakfast was delicious and plentyful. Kim also provides dinner which needs to be preordered but is such an added bonus. The room was huge with most comfortable bed. What made it extra special for us was the tranquillity of the place. We would most definitely recommend it.”

“Kim was amazing, really fast at communicating. As I was planning this for my parents- she helped me out a lot. Even though I did not go to her place my parents said it was beautiful, clean, comfortable & had the best food/hospitality from Kim! Thank you so much for making my parents trip lovely X”

Kim is a really friendly and accommodating host. The location is very peaceful with beautiful views of the countryside. It's really worth driving off the beaten track to reach the lovely period farmhouse. Kim's cooked breakfast is great. The house itself is spotlessly clean and very comfortable.

I am reluctant to be too fulsome about Kim's place on the grounds that there may not be vacancies the next time I want to book. However in my view this place is idyllic. It was so peaceful and relaxing; a welcoming host; comfortable bed; lovely breakfast. I felt very at ease and at home. Thank you Kim.

Beautiful setting. A perfect night's sleep in a super comfortable bed. A pleasingly powerful, hot shower. A high quality, hearty veggie breakfast. And a lovely host! Overall a perfect stay in homley, old farmhouse. Thanks again, Kim. Definitely see you again next year 🙂

Beautiful secluded farm house where you’d struggle to find better value for money!

We loved our stay with Kim - the breakfast was superb (especially homemade bread and marmalade jam!), and the room/bed was v comfy. We had great fun meeting the other residents at breakfast and appreciated Kim’s local tips (we were attending a wedding and one of the roads into town was shut). This was a memorable and happy stay in gorgeous surroundings and countryside. A hidden gem 🙂 Thanks Kim for making it a special stay for us 🙂

What an exceptional haven of peace and such a gorgeous place to stay. It was a wrench to leave. Kim is a wonderful host, and a brilliant cook. Her breakfasts are delicious and everything about our stay was so carefully and tastefully thought about. We are already planning when we can return. It was unforgettable - surrounded by sumptuous countryside and a little piece of heaven in which we felt really refreshed. I so recommend you to stay at Kim’s lovely home. You won’t regret it.

Kim really was the most perfect host and what a beautiful house it is in the most quiet and peaceful location. We were looked after so well and our cooked breakfast was definitely a highlight of the stay! Lovely clean room and bathroom with a very comfy bed! Would highly recommend anyone to stay at Kim's if you are looking for a quiet, peaceful night with a 10/10 breakfast the next day!
