Turning a weekend into a holiday – a blog by The Cafe Cat

We had a lovely blog sent to us from a guest called Sally, who stayed in the beautiful Kent countryside at Higham Farmhouse with some friends and family, read all about it below.
I read her blog and thought, “that should be me!”. I wanted to go there right away and do what she did. It looked so relaxing and fun.-

“When you wholeheartedly love a place, you can slip back into it as if you had never spent a moment away. It has the power to almost erase your life established elsewhere, it is so ready and familiar; encircling its arms around you sweetly and drawing you back into its comforting embrace.

Staying with Mulberry Cottages at Higham Farmhouse just outside of Canterbury, we were nestled atop a valley that rolled down into gnarls and tangles of green, thick with snaggle-toothed brambles, swampy earth and dotted with heaving cows dressed in their plush conker coats.

The air was damp with misty rain in our pretty little garden, clinging to tendrils of our hair and to the flowers as we ran circles around them, throwing up the scent of sodden grass and mud.

By day we delighted in adventures.

We reached and stretched our arms into the treetops, plucking small yellow cherries and laying them out flat to examine them closely.

Tasting tart little blackberries, not quite ready to meet their fate, resisting the burst against our teeth and tongues.

 By the fading light of the afternoon, we dawdled by the fire, drying our feet.
