This property is part of our English Country Cottages collection

An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


Attractive oak barn, with exposed beams, galleried sitting area and airy sun room, Canterbury and Dover with its castle are close by.

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 ½ mile.
The Barn (ref PZV) and The Stables (ref UKC16) can be booked together to accommodate up to 7 guests.

    A great place to stay. Everything you need to be comfortable. Great location and the kids love having sheep right outside their window. Warm with underfloor heating. Friendly owners. Lovely little village.

    The Barn is an exceptional place to stay. We enjoyed good weather but if you were forced to stay indoors there is so much to do there. The host is lovely, very attentive and has delightful, polite children. The Barn caters for practically every need, is very clean and cosy. We walked to the Royal Oak for a meal. The menu is limited and food is only served Wednesday through to Saturday but we couldn't fault the meals we chose. It was definitely value for money. Wendy is very friendly and we certainly had no complaints. If we were visiting Kent again we would definitely return to The Barn.

    We had a fantastic welcome from the owners. They left us a superb welcome pack which was really useful. The cottage was beautiful and superbly furnished and equipped. It is the best cottage we have ever stayed in as a holiday cottage. We would definitely recommend it to all our friends and family and would definitely go back. The area had so much to do and we certainly were not at a loss at any time for things to do.

    Barn accommodation is always enjoyable for a holiday,providing as it does a complete contrast to conventional style homes ,as ours is.This particular property is especially so,being spacious ,warm and very interesting in layout.It is situated in a very quiet country area ,in a village with few immediate amenities,apart from a pub in the process of being reopened,but very convenient to explore the east and north Kent coastal towns which are varied and worth visiting,not forgetting Canterbury 15 minutes away.To cap it all delightful owners who really do care about making your stay enjoyable

    The cottage is well furnished, spacious and attractive. During the week we stayed there, however, the weather was really cold and it was difficult to get warm inside, even with extra electric heaters. But that shouldn't put anyone off though, the weather was a bit extreme.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are really pleased you liked the Barn and found it a comfortable and attractive place to stay. Unfortunately your week coincided with the most extreme weather the country has seen for many decades…"the beast from the east"…..and we experienced continuous snow and temperatures of -12. The Barn is normally a nice warm temperature with lovely under floor heating but when faced with such extreme conditions it was obviously not as warm as it would usually be, despite the extra heaters we provided, so our apologies for this. We are just pleased that we managed to keep the heating and hot water running for you when many properties in our village had none! We would very much welcome you back when the sun is shining so that you can enjoy the Barn in better weather!
