A beautiful, beamed cottage in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; a great base for outdoor activities and for visiting cities and the coast.

This beautifully restored Grade II listed thatched barn dating back 300 years, has been divided into two beamed holiday cottages which reside in the grounds of the owners’ 500-year-old home Boyke Manor, where the great grandfather of Edward Elgar once lived, situated in the unspoilt Elham Valley, an AONB. Activities in the area include walking, horse riding, cycling, wildlife viewing, golf, beaches and art and crafts. Canterbury, great for shopping and sightseeing, and Dover, ideal for day trips to France, are both 20 minutes away. There is a fast train link to London (55 minutes). Shops ½ mile, pub 1 mile.

    Fantastic cottage, really well decorated and equipped. Beautiful spot. We were well looked after, with home made cake and wine on arrival. Will definitely return!

    We had a wonderful holiday, the only real bugbears I have with the cottage is the thickness of the interior walls. They were so thin that they made privacy impossible and listening to the TV once our son went to bed very difficult if we wanted him to settle. Also the hot water system did not provide for a very warm showers for the three of us. I liked the property, the hosts and the location was perfect for us, but the above limited the experience a touch.
