Octavia Hill Bunkhouse: Not Just a Place to Stay!

5 stars

Octavia Hill Bunkhouse is not just a place to stay (it sleeps up to 14 people), it is also a place for your children to party! You can hire the bunkhouse at both weekends and after school.

Thank you to Charlie7 for visiting the Bunkhouse and writing this review, and to the staff for the invitation and for being so welcoming!

I went to visit Octavia Hill Bunkhouse this week and I was really impressed with the place. The Bunkhouse is set in a very quiet and beautiful area (without any neighbours so the children can be as loud as they like!) only a few miles outside of Sevenoaks. It is quite secluded but you can drive directly to the house and there is loads of parking around it.

Accomodation:

There is a huge wooden table that would easily seat at least 14 adults, and basic sofas around the living room area. The 2 bedrooms are great as they have sets of bunk beds, but still feel like there is room to spare, so you are not all squashed in with no room to move around! I imagine staying with a group of friends in the bunk beds would be really good fun! I liked the outdoor area as it is pretty big and has a huge BBQ. The undercover seating area is a great idea too. There is plenty of parking, so it would be fine if there were lots of people meeting up there. And the area surrounding the bunkhouse is beautiful. Absolutely ideal if you wanted to do a bit of walking in this secluded area. Overall, if you are looking at getting a group of people or families together, this would be ideal.

Children’s Parties:

The Bunkhouse itself is a great size, and very child friendly (I took two of my DCs to try it out – 4y and 18m). The enormous wooden table (think Games of Thrones size!) would, in my opinion, easily seat 20 children plus adults. There is room inside to play games (and there is nothing to break- hurray!), but also a large garden outside to play in as well. I particularly liked the undercover seating area and I also liked the size of the kitchen – fully fitted with all the utensils you would need. This is a real plus if you are preparing party food as you could do everything on site instead of having to transport it.

I really liked the fact that you could use the Bunkhouse at any time of the year, in the winter it is apparently very warm, and the prices seem really good. Definitely comparable to other places you can hire out. Overall, I was very impressed and I’m really pleased I found this place as I will be definitely using it for birthday parties!table (think Games of Thrones size!) would in my opinion, easily seat 20 children plus adults.
