Enjoy a relaxing holiday surrounded by countryside in these barn conversions (refs 17192, 18398 and 19819), which have been decorated and fitted to a very good standard. They are situated on the owners’ working arable farm, and guests are welcome to use the footpaths crossing the farmland. Take a few steps back in time to the year of 1193 AD when you view the abbey ruins, once bustling with French monks. During the dissolution of the monasteries, Henry VIII had many stones removed from the abbey to build his fortifications at Deal and Walmer. Follow in the monks’ footsteps, (today a 20-minute car journey), and take a trip to Canterbury. Dover is 5 minutes’ drive, ideal for day trips to France or to visit its castle and admire the famous white cliffs. The properties are perfectly situated for walking and bird watching, with several good sandy beaches close by. Monks & Flint barns are adjoining. Barn is detached. Beach 4 miles. Shop 1½ miles, pub 2 miles.
These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 19 guests.

    A lovely characterful building set in a pretty location. Immediate access to the surrounding countryside, and an open outlook with very pleasant outside space adds to the charm. Very warm and cosy in cold weather. The log burner is delightful, the central heating is very efficient too. Very clean, fitted equipment is of a good quality and everything works. Very helpful and friendly owner. Enjoyed our short stay very much.

    I rented Nell's, Monk's and Flint barns and all were totally perfect. 20 of us all slept very well and had a wonderfully comfortable stay. We wanted to book again straight away only to find very limited availability due to popular demand!! A brilliant find. Thank you.

    We can’t think of a single thing that could be improved. We felt welcomed and the owner was really helpful when we asked to borrow the wheelchair. The manual of information was really comprehensive and given the special nature of the place it was very interesting to read its history. The accommodation was spotless and had everything we could have wanted, and a number of things that other excellent properties hadn’t thought of - little things like a notebook and pen, that were useful. We loved the place.
