Lovely pretty house & garden in a quiet location with very cute and young (at the time!) chickens. Very friendly host who was accommodating and helpful (especially with dinner venue recommendations!). Free wi-fi available and we were given their password without having to ask. Nice en-suite room with large, comfy bed (though it was 2 x singles pushed together).
We would have to say that the en-suite could do with a small amount of TLC (a few cracked/dirty tile areas etc), but overall very good.
Breakfast was nice & plentiful - a full English was available, together with cereals and toasts. Again, we have to say that the breakfast room could do with a little TLC as well as there were quite a few cobwebs by the window which had been there for quite some time, but nothing a good spring clean couldn't overcome.
Overall, very good, comfortable overnight accommodation.

During our second stay this year, we experienced the welcoming atmosphere of the Detling Coach House. This time, we sayed in the ground floor, occupying two cute, clean and comfortable rooms (one single, one double). I really loved my bathroom which had a cleand and well functioning shower, complimentary soap and shower gel , shampoo etc.
Due to the weather (mist), my room felt a little bit damp - of which there is not much to do about.
Breakfast was tasty and enjoyable as ever (they really have improved on the coffee!), we mostly had the cooked version which was excellent (quality of ham, lovely eggs!).
The stay has been relaxing and perfectly tendered by our host Emma who is never short of a witty remark. She has been as helpful as one can ever want and has instantly forwarded me my grooming set which I had forgotten.
A great place to stay, really!

We stayed at the Coach House on 9th and 10th September. The owners could not have been kinder - even going to drop me in town when I wanted to get a taxi and acting as a postbox for something I ordered - very difficult to find better service than that! We had room no. 4 and it was really good with large bathroom.l The English breakfasts were beautifully cooked and on time. Could not find fault and will happily stay there again.

Detling Coach House is in quiet lane by the show ground, although may be busy whe big shows are on. Lovely setting with pretty garden. Comfortable rooms with pleasant en-suite bathrooms. Breakfast is friendly and more than adequate, using good produce ( own eggs ? ). Any combination of cooked breakfast possible.

Although in a quiet lane, is is just off A249 and hence motorways, and only a short drive from Maidstone.

Landlady is both friendly and helpful and halps to make your stay more enjoyable.
