About Sandhole Barn

Spacious and comfortable, the open plan living space has a glass floor to ceiling wall and is bright and cheerful yet with a refined contemporary elegance. The double and twin bedrooms with light coloured wood, soft pale decor and creamy cappuccino linen create the perfect bedtime retreat. An added bonus to this property is the bathroom subtly equipped for guests with mobility problems. In contrast the cottage garden is typically English, secluded, quiet and a little haven of tranquillity for birds and humans alike.

Set back privately within secluded mature gardens lies this charming and peaceful holiday cottage. An immaculately presented detached barn conversion with open plan living across a single level, complete with a crisp hotel finish to also include family entertainment; a selection of reads, dvds and activities for whatever the weather!

Bird lovers and nature enthusiasts will fall in love, many guests delight in the beautiful cottage gardens with the mature fruit trees and exotic flowers that attract the wildlife and if you can bear to be away from the tranquil surroundings why not walk down the road for a visit of Leybourne lakes and natural park, perhaps you'll be tempted by the kayaking or scuba diving to name just a few of the activities in the local area.

The barn is perfectly positioned to explore the delights across Kent yet also offers incredible access to main routes be it by rail, bus or by car to London and the ports. With the property retaining its 4 star rating from the Quality in Tourism board, this makes an ideal bolt hole for a busy weekend visit or enjoyable vacation anytime of the year.
