About Sappington Granary


Featured in The Times as the perfect love nest - "This former granary has been lovingly converted into a beautiful little hideaway for two in the heart of the Kent countryside. Inside it is all red and white interiors, with original wooden beam walls and little fairy lights above the small kitchen table. There's a cast-iron bed with linen drapes." - The Times (February, 2018)

Sappington Granary is a traditional wooden framed former granary that has been transformed into a cosy and romantic bolthole in the middle of the beautiful Kent countryside.

This studio accommodation has everything you need for a comfortable holiday, guests receive a welcome pack including a bread mix for the bread maker, tea/coffee, homemade jam, butter, toasting muffins. Special breakfasts with fresh eggs from the owner's chickens and other home made items are available.

Sit on the raised decked balcony and look over fields and woodland, the perfect spot for breakfast, and even better in the evening to watch the setting sun.

There are walks from your doorstep, to explore this pretty part of Kent. Cycles can be hired from Canterbury and the coast is just 30 minutes drive, including the pretty towns of Sandwich, Deal and Walmer.
