This barn conversion is an ideal holiday base for a couple who wish to explore the Kent countryside.

Shared hot tub

Boasting their own private balconies overlooking farmland and with shared use of a hot tub, these two adjoining converted oak barns (refs 29409 and 29410) in the owners’ grounds make an ideal holiday base for exploring the Kent countryside. There is even an on-site massage centre which guests can pay for on arrival. Known as ‘The Garden of England’ with its miles of woodlands and fields, including gardens large and small, visit Sissinghurst and Goodnestone Park, where Jane Austen penned parts of ‘Pride and Prejudice’. Approximately 8 miles from Canterbury, where the cathedral dates back to the 11th century, enjoy a concert, or take a river tour. Whitstable, dubbed the ‘Pearl of Kent’ presents a great opportunity to indulge in sampling oysters for which it is renowned for. Alternatively, visit the port town of Hythe, with its interesting antique shops and fishing along the seafront. Roundwood Hall, for golf, is less than 2½ miles away and there is horse riding at Marberdan Riding Centre, 1 mile. For retail therapy, try McArthur Glen designer outlet, as well as Dover and the Channel Tunnel – both within easy driving distance for a day trip to France. Beach 10 miles. Shop 2½ miles, pub and restaurant 1 miles.

Ground floor: Living/dining room/kitchen with beams. Shower room with toilet. Spiral stairs to first floor: 1 twin bedroom with sloping ceiling.

    Great place for a weekend getaway! The property had character and was nice and cosy. The hosts were very welcoming and friendly. Only a short drive into the town centre if you want to explore a bit further. Me and my partner had a lovely time, it was quite the contrast to London and was the perfect place to recharge the batteries. The only slight let down was the beds, two single beds which were not the most comfortable so did have some trouble sleeping. Maybe a sofa bed would be ideal?

    We had a lovely stay at the cottage and would definitely stay there again. We found it quite expensive compared to others we have stayed at, however the owners were lovely and the cottage was so relaxing. I’d recommend it completely.

    Beautiful location. Old building divided into two properties, so poor sound proofing between the two properties.

    This property was brilliant for our dog as the garden had been made dog safe with wire netting and fencing preventing her escaping so we could rest easy that she was safe. Thank you.
