We can arrange anything you need from taxis, catering, activities, wine tasting, pamper sessions, to cocktail flairing!
A real emphasis on luxury and a boutique hotel feel. Four floors of heaven and all within 1 hour of London.

The space
A fabulous Grade 2 listed Victorian pub, now luxury self catering accommodation for up to 16 people under 50 minutes from the centre of London.

We cater for families who want to celebrate a special occasion or just want to get together for family time, to companies who want the ultimate corporate getaway and the opportunity to hire their own private boutique hotel.

The Bull has a fully equipped kitchen, utility room, dining area with a table seating 16, sitting room with plenty of comfy sofas, open fire, media room with 65" Ultra HD TV, 8 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, 6 of which are en suite, 2 more WC's on ground floor. Four of the king size beds will split into singles. South facing courtyard. Only 30 minutes from the coast.

The Bull at Brenchley was built in 1864 and retains many of the original features - but with mod cons too! The ceilings are high and the dining area and sitting room are open plan. These used to be the bars in the pub.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a 7 burner hob, double oven and grill. There is a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer and microwave in the utility room. The pantry is full of dishes, bowls, jugs - everything you could possibly want. So if you are real foodies you won't be short of utensils, pots and pans.

All of the bedrooms are good sizes, the smallest room has bunk beds with full size 3' beds. Six of the bedrooms have en suite showers or bathrooms, 4 of which have under floor heating and demister mirrors. The 7th shower room is on the top floor and is between two bedrooms so would be ideal for a family who want to be next to their children.

The original beer cellar is now a TV media room with a 65" curved Ultra HD TV with Sky TV, YouTube, Netflicks. For business visitors looking for a business planning/strategy away day, the TV will link to your laptop with an HDMI cable, so it's great for presentations and our quoted prices are inclusive of VAT, so it's a very good deal! We also have a projector and screen available for business visitors. This room has reduced head height in relation to the 9' ceilings upstairs, but unless you are 6'4 plus you will be able to stand up in the middle. There is also an area to sit and play cards or games and two huge sofas for lounging around. There is an old fashioned record player and LP's and a Karaoke machine.

We have Super Fast Fibre Optic Broadband because we know how important it is! You will be able to stream TV on your laptop and work if you really have to.

The beer garden is a small south facing deck and patio area. There is plenty of space to sit and eat with a large dining table and parasol. It's a pretty garden that is private, with outside fairy lights for evenings.

We would stress that Brenchley is a small village and we ask our guests not to remain outside after 11pm as the noise travels and may disturbs our neighbours.

Where you’ll be

Brenchley, England, United Kingdom

Brenchley is a lovely Tudor village, many of the houses are from the 16th Century. The Bull is Victorian because the original thatched pub burned down 150 years ago. There are fabulous walks that take you to many pubs in the local area. Matfield is a neighbouring village with a village green and three pubs surrounding it. Cricket matches and village fetes take place on the green. Horsmonden 2 miles in the opposite direction has been voted the best Village Stores in England.

I have lived near Brenchley in the local town of Tunbridge Wells for the past 20 years. I am a local business woman and I help families find luxury assisted living care homes in the South East of England - so the emphasis is on luxury all round. I live with my fiance Rob and we have four grown-up children between us, keeping our feet firmly on the ground We bought The Bull in January 2016 and have focused on making it a fabulous boutique holiday let. We will be open for business at the end of August and we hope you like it as much as we do.
