Lovely period holiday cottage converted from a traditional Kent Oast house to offer beautiful accommodation in a charming rural setting near to the historic city of Canterbury. The combination of oast and cottages has the use of a swimming pool and tennis court and for larger parties or group accommodation you can combine Great Higham Barn in the complex to sleep up to 44. Surrounded by farmland you can hire mountain bikes or arrange clay pigeon shooting with the owner. Ideally located just an hour and half from London and close to both historic Faversham and the popular seaside town of Whitstable there is lots to do during your stay!
