Local Gems from the Owner..

This holiday barn is part of complex of converted barns at Great Higham Farm in Doddington, Kent. The self catering English property is about a mile from the Kent village of Doddington with pub, garage and general stores and children's playground. There are several pubs near to this holiday barn offering good pub food ideal for those who do not wish to cook in this self catering holiday let, the nearest of which is in Milstead, Kent.

The English country house is part of the Torry Hill Estate and holidaymakers will have full use of the estate to enjoy during their stay at the Kent holiday let, including its 30 km of woodland paths and bridle paths for visitors to explore more of the Kent countryside. On the estate there is an established circular walk through the elegant parkland and along a Victoria carriage drive. In the spring Kent's bluebell woods and blossom from the cherry orchards are a sight to see! There is a riding stable near to this luxury holiday barn in Kent where horse riding and mountain bikes are available for hire together with maps of recommended routes through the estate's woodland. In addition for a fun day out of the English country barn, clay pigeon shooting can be organised by prior arrangement, at a cost of £45 per person which includes cost of cartridges.

The county town of Maidstone is 15 miles to the west, from this particular holiday let in Kent, with the historic cathedral city of Canterbury within 25 minutes. Access to the Channel Tunnel is at junction 12 of M20 and it can be reached in half an hour - crossings take 35 minutes, hereby you can enjoy more than just Kent when you come to stay in this luxurious and large holiday barn. Bookings can be made via the link on our website. For day trips to London, there is a regular service every half hour from Sittingbourne in Kent, not far from this holiday barn, which takes about an hour. The North Kent coast is only a few miles away, where the reserves at Elmley and Oare offer some of the best bird watching in the south-east for you to enjoy whilst you stay in Doddington, Kent, especially in winter.

Further afield this self catering holiday house is well placed for visits to Sissinghurst Castle and Gardens, the naval dockyards at Chatham or a visit to the wonderful medieval castles dotted right along the Kent and Sussex coast (we have more castles in Kent than any other county!).
