About Redfern Barn

Located down a quiet cul de sac and surrounded by open countryside, this charming barn really is in an idyllic setting. In the grounds of the owner's lovely house and yet very private, the barn is surrounded by a cottage garden with a nearby paddock, home to two gorgeous donkeys and a couple of very friendly rescue goats. A large patio with garden furniture is perfect for alfresco dining and relaxing on sunny, summer evenings.

Inside, the barn has everything you wish for a cosy and comfortable stay. A modern kitchen and dining area, a sitting room with TV, and a shower room. Upstairs is an amazing vaulted ceiling master bedroom with kingsize bed and a lovely reading gallery with armchairs and table and stunning views over the countryside.

Redfern Barn is perfect for summer holidays or short breaks whatever the time of year. The picturesque village of Wye is within walking distance with a variety of pubs, restaurants and local shops. The barn is located on the North Downs Way and surrounded by miles of country walks on your doorstep. The City of Canterbury is a short drive away, as is the Ashford International station with easy links to Lindon and Europe.

"We are definitely going to return after an amazing weekend. Thank you for leaving us things such as milk, eggs and bread. It made the stay that much nicer. Once again, we will 100% return to Redfern! Thank you so much!"

Joe & Megan - January 2016

"Thank you for the lovely, welcoming Barn. On pulling up we saw the Christmas tree - lovely. The Barn was a delightful place to have a romantic break away. The facilities were top notch and the welcome pack was wonderful, such a nice touch. It's so easy to explore local places: Wye, Ashford and Canterbury. The donkeys are so friendly. The fireworks on New Year's Eve were a lovely surprise, as was gazing at the stars from bed! Thank you once again."

Ruth & Darren - January 2016

"Thank you, Sue, for an amazing stay, the barn is a real treasure - not least for how well kitted out it is. We had a great time in the area and a comfortable stay at Redfern Barn - with a special mention to the sound insulation as we didn't even notice the nearby railway!"

Will - November 2015

"Thank you for a lovely weekend!"

Amy & Gary - October 2015

"Dear Sue, Many thanks for your kind hospitality and the lovely and immaculate Redfern Barn. The house is a perfect place to relax and to explore from. We had a really wonderful few days and we hope to be back. The walk to Wye was lovely and easy. It also allowed us to easily catch the train to Canterbury and enjoy dinner at the Flying Horse before returning home. The outside space is excellent and beautiful as we were lucky to have some excellent weather! Many thanks, again. I'm sure we'll be back, and we will certainly recommend to friends and family!"

Mike & Kirsten - August 2015

"Thank you very much for your hospitality in the lovely Redfern Barn. We've had both a relaxing and a thrilling week! Relaxing while walking along the Stour River, or to the devil's kneeling through, or in the footsteps of Jane Austen. Thrilling hours were spent in Canterbury, Rochester and in the many, many churches all around Kent. We love this country and we surely wish to return soon. Dear Sue, thank you for your kind words each day, and for the many delicious and attentive gifts we received, such as eggs, bread, beans and potatoes. Indeed, we had a lovely stay here, thank you very much."
