    Ratling Barn is a charming, spacious, thatched cottage situated in a quiet village in Kent. Retaining original features and stunning cart gate windows, this property is perfect for any family or group looking for a countryside holiday. It has a large garden with pond and a large terrace, seating for summer evenings and plenty of space for your four-legged friend. Comfortably sleeping 8, Ratling Barn boasts desirable rooms, large kitchen and generous living areas.

    Ratling has a long history, there is documented reference from 1093 to Ratling Barn being part of the Manor of Wingham, today a nearby village. The village was at some point home to a rope-making community. In the days of sailing ships Ratlings were small ropes which crossed horizontally in a ships rigging at equal and increasing distances from the deck of a ship so that they formed ladders, which the crew used to climb up to the mast head. It is likely that Ratling Barn began life as a workplace where such ropes were made so they could be sold at the Cinque ports around the Kent coast.
    With the arrival of steam ships the demand for ropes fell and the barn was turned to agricultural use but later fell into disrepair. In the late 1980s the thatched barn was within the grounds of Ratling Court, a Grade I listed building which also later fell into disrepair, and the local planning authorities listed Ratling Barn Grade II because of its historical interest. As a result, it was sensitively converted into two dwellings for residential use, using traditional materials and retaining many of the original features, including a framework of oak timbers and the fully thatched roof, which is among the largest in the UK.
