There has been a manor house at Ruffyns Hill since the 14th century and this beautifully restored cartshed blends modern living with its ancient surroundings. The Cartshed provides cosy and well thought out accommodation for two and features lovely paintings by an artist from Suffolk. Located on the edge of Aldington village - a well-known haunt of smugglers in the 17th century, the village has an excellent butcher's, post office, convenience store and pub. The area has loads to offer, from exploring atmospheric Romney Marsh and the lighthouse at Dungenesss to visiting Port Lympne wildlife park. The quaint seaside town of Hythe is only a few minutes drive away with miles of pebble beach, the Royal Military Canal and a wide array of independent shops, cafes and restaurants. Or why not hop across the channel to France, with the Channel Tunnel only 7.5 miles away it couldnt be easier! Shop: 0.9 mile Pub: 1 mile Coast: 7 miles

After a nightmare journey involving a seven hour hold up before the Dartford crossing, The owner, could not have been more helpful and understanding. He even met us on arrival at 02.00 in the morning. Directions were a problem because of a road closure. The cottage was superbly equipped and clean. Every possible appliance and facility had been anticipated and provided for. Mr Ian Cranston - 8th September 2018
It was an ideal location as we were guests at wedding being held in barn opposite. There are also plenty of footpaths for country walks and places to visit. The kitchen was compact and had many gadgets/fittings.. Mrs Celia Chidwick - 12th August 2017
The cartshed is a lovely property and of an excellent standard. It is beautifully presented, clean and comfortable. The owners are friendly and attentive hosts. The outside seating area is just right for dining or relaxing. Thank you for an excellent stay.Mr Graham Dawson - 26th June 2017
