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!


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.

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.

    The owner should rename the cottage from The Longbarn Huntbourne to Junk & Disorderly. Worn out benches full with stains, garden furniture wich was broken or so dirty that you don't dare to sit on it, carpets to stumble over, dinertable and chairs are not as shown on the website. The garden needs a lot of maintenance, the pond could barely be seen because of the weed that grew 5 feet high. To make a long story short: very disapointing

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We were very disappointed to read your review following your recent stay at The Longbarn Huntbourne. The acres and acres of farmland and woodland surrounding the property is a haven for wildlife and sometimes, the benches do suffer from the odd bird dropping here and there. The benches have since been cleaned, thank you for bringing this to our attention. The garden chair you mention was folded away at the side of property due to damage and has since been removed - more chairs were available. The dining table is the same as shown in the photos; it is the chairs we have changed and the rugs. All the rugs have non slip strips attached. The grounds surrounding the property are not manicured; the garden is purposely grown as wild to encourage wildlife. The pond, long grasses, wildflowers and pond plants invite wildlife into the garden and give our guests much to watch from the windows or sitting-out area. There is also a lawned area for guests to enjoy.

    Quiet location by pond with field of sheep and woods around. Particularly good if you want to walk and potter around locally. The whole area is pretty, with small villages, hop oasts, trees shading the roads and woods. Tenterden is a busy little town with one NT property very nearby and others including Sissinghurst not far. The longbarn is warm and cosy with a comfortable sitting area. We enjoyed our stay

    We enjoyed a peaceful, quiet & interesting week in The Longbarn. The log burner added to the quirky, cosy barn which has so many windows to see the surrounding fields, sheep & lambs in March. We took our bikes & cycled (hilly!) the local area & to Tenterden. Chris made us very welcome & thank you Chris for the welcome pack!
