What we love


Description

Nature lovers will enjoy trying to spot the wildlife in the 50 acres of woodland at this property. Spend the day in France via the Eurostar!

All on ground floor: Living room with French doors/dining room/kitchen all with beams. 2 bedrooms: 1 double, 1 twin. Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet.

Woodburner in living room (initial fuel included). Underfloor central heating, electricity, bed linen and towels included. Freeview TV. DVD. Induction hob. Electric oven. Microwave. Washing machine. Dishwasher. Freezer. Wi-fi. Lawned garden with terrace and furniture. Barbecue. Shared 90-acre farmland and 50-acre woodland grounds. Parking (2 cars). Welcome pack. No smoking. NB: Large unfenced pond in garden, 7 yards.


Originally thatched, this thoughtfully converted, detached longbarn with local oak timbers, close to the owner’s home, has its roots in Saxon times, with a Flemish wool washing pond behind it. Still a working sheep farm, guests have an opportunity to explore the 90 acres of farmland and 50 acres of woodland, a haven for wildlife and carpets of bluebells in the springtime. The area has connections with the RSPB, and you may even be lucky enough to hear a nightingale sing. This holiday property is situated 11/2 miles from the attractive, Wealden market town of Tenterden, known as the ’Jewel of the Weald’, with its weather-boarded tea shops and cottages. Tenterden also hosts a colourful Folk Festival at the beginning of October, where you can see the Morris men and women and other folk dancers take to the streets.
Take a magical ride on the Kent and East Sussex steam railway through the beautiful countryside to the medieval, moated castle at Bodiam. Sample the local, award-winning wines at Chapel Down Winery. It was widely reported that Prince William and Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, chose the sparkling rose from here in 2011 to support British wine. Visit Sissinghurst Castle Gardens (National Trust) created by the novelist Vita Sackville West and Sir Harold Nicholson in the 1930s. Rye is a 30-minute drive, and the beaches and sand dunes at Camber are 40 minutes. There are good connections to London from Ashford, just 38 minutes to St Pancras on the high speed train for further sightseeing opportunities in the capital. Bring your passport and have lunch in Brussels or Paris via the Eurostar. Golf can also be found locally. Beach 15 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 3/4 mile.

    We were very impressed with the Longbarn. It had been beautifully renovated with everything we needed. The adjoining fields and woods were lovely to walk in.

    Absolutely loved this place, setting was amazing and the barn was really nice and had such a lovely vibe to it. So peaceful and quiet and 125 acres to roam of private land. Would love to go back even though my dog got sick with an allergy we still enjoyed the peaceful environment and the view from the barns own patio.

    A lovely secluded location in a wild-life packed garden. Christopher is a very hospitable host & a charming landlord. The Longbarn Huntbourne is a great base from which to explore the surrounding area & close to Tenterden, which has a great selection of small independent shops. Try to fit in a visit to Chapel Down, the local winery & eat at the restaurant on site. Great wines. Great food.

    The Longbarn Huntbourne was idyllic - a beautiful, comfortable cottage in a stunning, peaceful setting. There was a local shop within a 5 minute drive, and Tenterden was less than 10 minutes away, with a wide variety of shops and restaurants. Ideally located for visiting lots of places of interest, we didn't want to leave!

    we had a lovely stay and in stead of all kind of plans we stayed put and enjoyed the lovely weather and the "garden". there are several places around were we could sit outside. In the evening we loved the woodburnig stove.

    A very comfortable cottage. Very clean with everything you need. Lovely location with views of fields all around. Close to the market town of Tenterden which has plenty of nice shops, cafes and pubs.

    This lovely barn was super cosy and full of character! Our dog loved the log burner, and watching the sheep in the field next door. The surrounding countryside was very peaceful, and we were only a 5 minute drive from the shops and pubs in Tenterden. A lovely holiday home for our Kentish holiday, thank you!
