Enviably situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, this beautifully finished holiday cottage is the ideal rural retreat, located at the foot of the North Downs and perfect for walking holidays. With stunning views across rolling fields and woodland, The Barn is surrounded by nature, and it is even possible to see deer grazing in the field outside the cottage.
Furnished to a very high standard this holiday cottage is light and spacious offering a good standard of self catering holiday accommodation. The open plan living area shares in the views, with patio doors leading you outside.
Ideally located for exploring the rural delights that this pretty part of Kent has to offer, with a number of locally renowned gastro pubs just a 5 minute drive away, as well as the lovely village of Wye, home to a choice of fantastic eateries, including the riverside 'The Tickled Trout'. For those who wish to explore further afield, the historic city of Canterbury can be easily reached, with its famous Cathedral, and interesting cobbled streets.
"Kent is a wonderful place, made special because of the fine weather and the fantastic places to visit. The history, the sea and the whole countryside. But, this area is wonderful because of Chris and Maureen who shared the care and concern for their guests. They made our holiday special. We wanted peace and quiet, a place to explore and we found it exclusive, freedom and we felt relaxed and enjoyed our stay. Thank you both for a wonderful stay. Weather exceptional as were the hosts. Thank you both."September 2016 - Mick and Clare
"It was more than fine! Having had a relaxing slow journey, stopping to visit a NT property, we arrived a bit later than intended, but had a very warm welcome from the owners, & there was a lovely gift of flowers, wine & new-laid eggs on the table. We loved the property, which was clean, spacious & stylish, with very comfortable furniture, & a marvellous outlook on to a field with sheep & guinea fowl, backed by woodland ... very Capability Brown, compared with Sissinghurst! The owners were extremely helpful & we used the bikes provided twice to explore the immediate area, which was fun. The location was great for seeing a lot of Kent, with its lovely old towns & varied coastal scenery.Hoping to return for more!"October 2014 - Mr Badcock

"I wonderful week spent in kent! with The Barn being the perfect base for our adventures! A quiet, peaceful and well equipped haven with interesting wildlife right outside the window- hours spent in the mornings and evenings watching the Rabbits, guinea fowl, deer, foxes, a badger and even a woodpecker!. We had a great time exploring the area (both Dover and Leeds Castles are fantastic) from this handy central location. A wonderful welcome from our hosts ( Maureen and Chris) made us feel at home - thank you for the wine - without being intrusive. A truly memorable holiday! thank you."August 2013
