Step back in time as you gaze at the abbey ruins and enjoy a relaxing break surrounded by countryside and footpaths.

Enjoy a relaxing holiday surrounded by countryside in these barn conversions which have been decorated and fitted to a very good standard. They are situated on the owners’ working arable farm, and guests are welcome to use the footpaths crossing the farmland. Take a few steps back in time to the year of 1193 AD when you view the abbey ruins, once bustling with French monks. During the dissolution of the monasteries, Henry VIII had many stones removed from the abbey to build his fortifications at Deal and Walmer. Follow in the monks’ footsteps, (today a 20 minute car journey), and take a trip to Canterbury. Dover is 5 minutes’ drive, ideal for day trips to France or to visit its castle and admire the famous white cliffs. The properties are perfectly situated for walking and bird watching, with several good sandy beaches close by. Monks & Flint barns are adjoining. The Stables & Nell’s Barn are detached. Shop and pub 1½ miles.

All on ground floor: 3 steps up to living room with French door/dining room with wooden floor/kitchen. 2 bedrooms: 1 double with en-suite shower room and toilet, 1 twin with additional pull-out single (5ft 9in long). Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet. Low beams throughout.

    We had an amazing stay at Monk's Barn, which was equipped with everything you could possibly need for a short break away. We loved the peace and tranquillity of the location, but with a large 24 hour Tesco a few minutes drive away, if you had forgotten anything. We had arranged to let ourselves in on arrival, and Sue the owner popped in the following morning to check we had everything we needed. We also liked the fact that our dog was made very welcome at Monk's Barn too.

    Monks Barn is ideal location for travelling around Kent. I had high expectations for this cottage, and on the whole, they were fully meet. The only negative to this was the unprofessinal welcome my daughter received by the owner relating to pets. The owner did not give my daughter the opportunity to explain the situation, and only after my daughter was able to clarify this, did the owner calm down and an agreement was found. I would have given 10/10 for this cottage, but the owner's inappropriate welcome manner tempered this. Other than this, all was perfect.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for the fact that you would have given the property 10/10. We have been running our holiday cottage business for over 12 years and only ever allowed 1 dog in Monks Barn. I was therefore taken aback when I saw 2 large golden retrievers in the property and was concerned as no one had tried to contact us at any time to see if this would be ok. This put me in a very difficult situation as I would not have allowed two such large dogs in the property for any reason as we do not believe the property is big enough for any two dogs. I hope you appreciate that on this occasion we did accommodate the extra dog. This issue aside, we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and we are glad that the property met your expectations.
