What we love


Only 15 minutes from the Channel Tunnel so bring your passport and take a trip to France, or simply enjoy the local area.

Utility. Bathroom with separate shower cubicle and toilet. Spiral open tread staircase to first floor: Study area/double bedroom with sloping ceiling overlooking living area.

Wood-burning stove - initial fuel included thereafter available locally. Electricity, oil central heating, bed linen, towels included. TV. DVD (small library). Stereo/CD. Microwave. Washing machine, dishwasher, fridge/freezer (in utility). W-Fi. Decked terrace, furniture. 26 acres of woodland (shared with owner). Parking (2 cars). No smoking .

Nestling in 26 acres of woodland and pasture, this delightful detached barn is situated in a quiet retreat in rural Kent, and offers complete tranquillity with space to think and be creative. The cottage is well equipped and has a wood burner for which the owners thoughtfully supply a basket of logs during the winter months. A glass of wine can be enjoyed on the decked terrace whilst watching the lambs at play, or trying to spot a deer. Malthouse Barn is 20 minutes from Canterbury, and the Channel Tunnel is 15 minutes away for the Eurostar to Paris. Take the fast train from Ashford and be at St Pancras, London, in just over half an hour. For a car free holiday, the owners are happy to collect and deliver guests to and from the station, and for sightseeing trips, you can take the train into historic Canterbury. Enjoy views from the decking down the valley which is occasionally visited by herds of wild deer. This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is an orchid conservation area, and makes a lovely place to visit in any season. For flower lovers, there are great gardens to visit nearby including the famous gardens at Sissinghurst, Great Dixter, Bateman’s, Scotney Castle and Charleston. The town of Wye is 4 miles away and has a variety of shops, restaurants and pubs, with a farmers’ market every other Saturday. There are also two local pubs within walking distance. This is excellent walking terrain, and for the more daring, try hot air ballooning locally. Shop 3 miles, pub 1 mile.

    Lovely thoughtful hosts! Warm welcome with cake and fresh logs for the fire. Wonderful nook away from the world. Dog walking is good. You need to venture to other fields for off lead walks.

    The cottage is perfectly placed for visiting coastal areas, Canterbury and clise enough to Dover for a day trip tp France. Coming from a medium sized town we found the narrow roads challenging. Nevertheless we managed to get about each day. The peace and tranquility made the holiday.

    This is a real gem of a cottage, tucked away in a peaceful location on the Kent Downs an Area of Outstanding Beauty. It is very well and interestingly furnished by charming and helpful owners to present a thoroughly peaceful and relaxing break.

    Brilliant situation with a French Gite feel that exudes charm and has real art on the walls.

    Lovely well equipped cosy cottage in a lovely location we very much enjoyed our stay there. Just be aware about negotiating spiral staircase to go to the loo in the night.

    Rustic.....but quite romantic is how I would best describe this cottage. If you are looking for something luxurious maybe it's not the place for you, but if you like something slightly quirky, with a bit of character and charm (not to mention lovely views across the valley to woodland beyond) this probably fits the bill!! Run by a lovely couple too.

    This is really a great cottage in the middle of nature with squirrels, deer and pheasants in the field just before the terrace. The kitchen is well equipped and the oven works perfect. Furthermore you can make beautiful walks in the neighborhood.
