Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


Nature lovers will enjoy trying to spot the wildlife in the 50 acres of woodland at this property. Spend the day in France via the Eurostar!

Originally thatched, this thoughtfully converted, detached longbarn with local oak timbers, close to the owner’s home, has its roots in Saxon times, with a Flemish wool washing pond behind it. Still a working sheep farm, guests have an opportunity to explore the 90 acres of farmland and 50 acres of woodland, a haven for wildlife and carpets of bluebells in the springtime. The area has connections with the RSPB, and you may even be lucky enough to hear a nightingale sing. This holiday property is situated 11/2 miles from the attractive, Wealden market town of Tenterden, known as the ’Jewel of the Weald’, with its weather-boarded tea shops and cottages. Tenterden also hosts a colourful Folk Festival at the beginning of October, where you can see the Morris men and women and other folk dancers take to the streets.
Take a magical ride on the Kent and East Sussex steam railway through the beautiful countryside to the medieval, moated castle at Bodiam. Sample the local, award-winning wines at Chapel Down Winery. It was widely reported that Prince William and Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, chose the sparkling rose from here in 2011 to support British wine. Visit Sissinghurst Castle Gardens (National Trust) created by the novelist Vita Sackville West and Sir Harold Nicholson in the 1930s. Rye is a 30-minute drive, and the beaches and sand dunes at Camber are 40 minutes. There are good connections to London from Ashford, just 38 minutes to St Pancras on the high speed train for further sightseeing opportunities in the capital. Bring your passport and have lunch in Brussels or Paris via the Eurostar. Golf can also be found locally. Beach 15 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 3/4 mile.

All on ground floor: Living room with French doors/dining room/kitchen all with beams. 2 bedrooms: 1 double, 1 twin. Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet.

    A very well restored historic building in a very quiet setting, an ideal location for exploring this part of Kent. The approach to the cottage was a little off-putting - typical untidy run down farm approach but once in it was lovely. The roof lights meant that it was light and bright inside and there was lots of good hot water. Furniture and beds were very comfortable. Lots of good shops and restaurants in Tenterden.

    Really enjoyed our stay. Lovely views of the fields from the barn. We took our Cocker Spaniel with us. He had a fantastic time. The owners were great and there didn't seem to be loads of rules about where dogs could go. We enjoyed visiting Rye, Dungeness and Camber Sands.

    This was our second visit to The Longbarn, and see that over a year standards haven't dropped. A homely property in a quiet restful situation, morning walks in the extensive bluebell woods really charged ones batteries for the day ahead, visiting NT properties and family in this part of the world. Chris, the owner was his usual welcoming self and was genuinly concerned that everything was as it should be. A really lovely place and are looking to book next year.

    The Longbarn is a beautifully converted barn in a lovely and peaceful location. Chris was extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful and the cottage is really well equipped and comfortable. The log-burning stove was really easy to use and made the cottage cosy on cold nights. There are lots of attractions nearby such as Great Dixter, Pashley Manor and Dungeness. I would recommend a stay here to any lovers of the countryside.
