Farthingales is a Grade II listed homestead, based around a 15th-century hall house set in the heart of the Kent countryside. It sits adjacent to the historic village church and on the edge of rolling fields. Two of the property’s outbuildings, The Barn (ref PZV) and The Stables (ref UKC16), have been sensitively converted to provide accommodation which reflect their history, by retaining original features, whilst providing the comforts of modern living such as underfloor heating.

Local attractions include the famous city of Canterbury, with its beautiful cathedral, dominant city walls and an array of boutique shops, bars and restaurants. Enjoy a day trip to France by ferry from Dover to Calais, or by train from Ashford via the Channel Tunnel. Nearby coastal towns in Kent include Broadstairs, famous for its annual folk festival, and Whitstable, a charming fishing town with local shops, oyster festivals and pubs right on the beach. London is easily accessible with several high speed train routes from Kent; in under an hour you can enjoy all that the capital has to offer. Shops 1½ miles, pub and ?restaurant 2 miles.
The Barn (ref PZV) and The Stables (ref UKC16) can be booked together to accommodate up to 7 guests.

Warm welcome, comfortable converted barn, welcome hamper was a bonus! Village itself is very quiet but there is lots to see/do within a short drive. An eye-opener to a part of the country usually passed through on the way to Dover/ Channel Tunnel /Gatwick.
