About Hill House Farm


Exquisitely furnished farmhouse in contemporary country style, sitting peacefully among the trees with a private walled garden providing wonderful views over the valley. The majestic Highland cows (and Roger the Bull!) peer over the fence to welcome you down the driveway to your tranquil rural retreat.

The fabulous conservatory dining room offers you and your family the best seat in the house to admire the surrounding views, while the play den downstairs will become a haven for your children.

During glorious summer months you can enjoy a glass of wine or a BBQ on the sun-trap elevated terrace and in winter there are beautiful open-fires in both the cosy snug and the open plan sitting room - the ideal spot for a glass of your favourite wine and delving into a good book. Pure Heaven!

The owners have taken great care in creating a special home that is immaculately presented, blending contemporary farmhouse living with a mix of reclaimed floor boards, flagstone tiles, exposed brick walls and period fireplaces.

If you can be pulled away from your family friendly retreat, the nearby villages of Barham and Elham Valley are a short drive away, home to a host of pubs and eateries and not forgetting the Cathedral City of Canterbury still within a 20 minute drive away.

"Lovely, comfortable house. Views and surroundings are wonderful. We have had a lovely holiday, there is lots to do in Kent."

The Muxlow Family - August 2018

"We had an absolutely fantastic stay at Hill House Farm. We were married at St Mary's and used this as a base for the bride to get ready and two families to come together. We all enjoyed the space & light, appliances & furnishings. Such a special space to spend our first weekend as a married couple."

Matt & Thea - July 2018

"Heaven on earth! Beautiful flowers everywhere, stunning views from every window, peace & quiet as well as everything you can ever need. The place is so lovely we didn't want to explore the region, and just soaked up the wonderful atmosphere. We will have to return. Thank you."

"Thanks for the wonderful stay. A house full of nice things, views to the hills, the great landscape and the impressive 'adventure tours' for the children. We had an impressive short trip and we will come back."

May 2018

"Heaven on earth! Beautiful flowers everywhere, stunning views from every window. Peace and quiet as well as everything you ever need. Tastefully decorated and beautiful textiles and curtains. The place is so lovely that we didn't want to explore the region and just soaked up the wonderful atmosphere. We will have to return for a longer period."

Lucida and family - May 2018

"Pulling into the driveway we had already fallen in love with Hill House Farm! The house and gardens are absolutely beautiful. Everything is wonderfully maintained and it really feels like a much-loved family home. You made our stay truly enjoyable, even down to the fresh flowers in all the rooms. A slice of rural heaven. We'll be back..."

The Wyatt Family - March 2018

"Absolutely beautiful house in a stunning part of the world. We have stayed in many Mulberry Cottage properties over the years and this is our favorite! We went exploring the local area, highly recommend Whitstable, and Canterbury Cathedral. Loved the attention to detail in the renovation of this house."

The Leopold Family - February 2018

"What a beautiful house. This is our first time in the UK. It was a wonderful start to stay in your home. The first day I was telling friends and family how wonderful it was. Thank you."

"What a beautiful home! Thank you for the bowl of fruit and fresh flowers - a lovely touch. The perfect place to share with our Canadian friends to show them the beauty of Kent and of course the Highland cows!"

The Lee Family - September 2017

"Our second stay at HHF and more magical than ever! A beautiful house in a stunning location. The view over the Downs from the corner of the garden is priceless. Great walks, great beaches, great pubs! We can't wait to come back again. Such a shame to have to go home!"

Greg, Kate & family - August 2017

"From pulling into the driveway we had already fallen in love with Hill House Farm. The house and gardens are absolutely beautiful.
