Interaction with guests
Visitors to HighBanks will find themselves in a friendly family home run by Julia & John (who admit to being 60+). The B&B rooms were furnished, with the grown-up children in mind, when the house was rebuilt in 2015.

J&J have lived in and around Sevenoaks for 40 years so enjoy sharing their knowledge of quaint pubs and interesting old houses with their guests.

This is a comfortable studio, very close to the main centre of Sevenoaks. The studio has everything you need for a few days and is situated down a leafy country lane. The studio has it's own entrance but is adjoining the owners main house. There is a parking place. The owners John and Julia are helpful and courteous.

Management response:

Hi Nell, We really enjoyed having you to stay and very much appreciate your kind review. Hope to see you again next time you are staying in Sevenoaks J & j

About the neighbourhood
HighBanks enjoys open views to impressive pine trees at the front and the quiet outlook over schools grounds to the rear. Hard to imagine the heart of the ancient town's high street is just 750 mtrs away.
All the neighboring properties are substantial detached houses in large well maintained gardens.

Sevenoaks is a town with a rich history and a vibrant present day mix of old & new. High quality independent stores and restaurants rub shoulders with those that can be found throughout England.

Just a few miles from central Sevenoaks are some delightful villages with their characterful pubs offering refreshments to walkers and motorists. Set among the North Downs most villages and walks offer stunning views both North and South.

For Sevenoaks Town, Knole Park & Knole House walking is the the obvious and enjoyable method. To visit nearby Chartwell, Ightham Mote, Hever, Lullingstone or Chiddingstone a car or taxi would be the best mode of transport.
