Our kitchen serves locally sourced food, organic where possible. Our own market garden supplies many of the vegetables and we work with other local farms and growers to ensure that the menu reflects the seasonality of Kent.

Warm, yet spacious with high ceilings and original beams, the barn can easily accommodate 20 people practising yoga and up to 150 people conference style.

Testimonials

All my colleagues loved their stay at Bore Place thank you very much to you and your staff for all your help in making our Away Day such a success.

FTI Consulting, September 2022

“We have been bringing our group to Bore Place annually for years. The team there, the location and the "magic" of the place have never failed to create a unique and powerful event. The balance of natural beauty, great food and the reality of a functioning farm are a lovely and unique combination which we've been able to tap into for reflection, connection and fun."

BMW Foundation, September 2022

Thanks for a great stay, we had a wonderful time. The event went well, our guests really enjoyed Bore Place - especially the vending machine!  

Thanks to all the friendly and helpful staff that were available to support us the entire weekend. 

Noni and Guppi, Decolonising Economics, February 2024

We book Bore Place every year for our staff retreat! We absolutely love the space, which is great for getting us all out in nature and away from our desks in central London. Bore Place House is particularly nice, with a lovely area to sit outside in the summer by the firepit. The staff are always incredibly attentive, helpful, and quick at responding to any queries. The catered lunches and dinner were also delicious (as were the cakes!) and perfectly catered for our specific dietaries. We all came away full and wishing we could stay for longer!

Green Alliance, September 2023

I just wanted to say what a wonderful weekend we had and a massive thank you to you both for making it perfect for us. We had so many wonderful comments from the choir about how amazing Bore House was and the whole site. 

Kirsty, Quire Voices, June 2023

...our sincere gratitude for such a fantastic stay at Bore Place... this was my first experience of Bore Place and I was overwhelmed both by the beauty of the location and by the hospitality shown by the staff...this event took a lot of planning on your side, particularly as our guest list and requirements were in flux.  At every stage of the process, you were unfailingly helpful and responsive in your communications.  All the meals were superb and everyone that attended commented on the great quality.... a huge thank you for your support, hospitality and the generosity of spirit of all your team. 

Maynard Leigh Associates, October 2023

This was our second visit to the wonderful Bore Place, it gets better every time! We are an inner-London youth group supporting young people with disabilities. The staff team were amazingly supportive and on hand to answer any queries. We went on a night walk and had a willow workshop delivered by the amazing John Waller – we even took a bundle back to South London to see if we can build our skills. Thanks, Bore Place we will be back!

Catherine Keevil, Disability Coordinator – Wandsworth Council.

We booked Bore Place for our annual company offsite of 40 employees. Everyone had a fantastic time, the venue was amazing and in a stunning location! Transport was very easy for both those coming from London and people travelling from the continent via Dover. The team at Bore Place was incredibly helpful and tailored the experience to what we needed. We'll definitely be looking to come back next year!

Oli – Director of Tech Start Up, September 2022
