About Higham Farmhouse

Overlooking rolling fields of the Kent countryside and set on a working cattle farmstead, is where you will find this impressive large family farmhouse, with acres of land plus private pretty gardens to enjoy.

Complete peace and privacy can be enjoyed upon the farm, with many choosing to park directly outside the property and not to get back in the car again for the rest of their well-deserved break.

Cook up a storm in the family kitchen and serve a feast for friends and family beside one of the many log burning stoves. Whilst in summer enjoy some alfresco fun around the BBQ, watching as the children play, and later sitting back under the parasol with a tall fresh glass of Pimms!

The home provides all the modern day creature comforts including WiFi and central heating, whilst set within a modest and traditional backdrop with beams, wood and tile floors. The large holiday accommodation provides three reception rooms and five bedrooms over two floors, some with views directly to Daisy and her friends beside in the cattle shed.

Higham Farmhouse provides that something for everyone, you can enjoy the fresh poppy scented air on those long strolls through the country trails surrounding the property, and equally dress up for the evening and head to the theatre in Canterbury for a quality West End show or get into your swimming costume for a bit of time beside the seaside and all within a few miles of the farm.

"The house is lovely, with large bedrooms (some with en-suite bathrooms), a cosy living room and a big dining room with enough space to fit 12 people around the table. All rooms downstairs have a wood stove which make them even cosier. Would definitely recommend to everyone"

Mrs H.M 30.7.2010

"I have stayed on this farm, and I can testify that it is very comfortable and extremely well equipped. It is also a real haven of peace and tranquility, with wonderful rural views. I have enjoyed watching birds and have been impressed by the variety that there are to see. Higham Farmhouse is set in a wonderful area, with historic sites ranging from the Roman sites at Dover and Richborough to marvellous villages like Fordwich and Sandwich, very near by. Higham Farmhouse is the place for a very happy holiday at any time of the year, but it is especially good in the summer, when meals outside on the patio are a special treat."

Mrs M.P July 2010
