Located just 15 minutes from the city of Canterbury but nestled in the heart of the Kent countryside is this sympathetically renovated cottage in the grounds of the owner's house.  The property which sleeps 2 enjoys beautiful views across rolling hills and parkland and has wonderful walks from the back door which your dog will love.  Being part of the Broome Park estate, guests can enjoy a game of golf as day members at the Golf and Country Club, followed by a drink at the bar in the magnificent mansion house.  Just a few minutes walk across the fields you will find The Jackdaw a very popular village pub offering a good restaurant.  Barham village itself offers an excellent village store specialising in local produce and a visit to Simpson's Vineyard is not to be missed, to sample some delicious award winning wines! The village of Bridge on the way into historic Canterbury offers a convenience store, post office, gift shop and a couple of pubs. For a day out head for medieval  Canterbury with its stunning cathedral, cafe culture, winding streets and museums.  Or discover the coast and the pretty village of St. Margaret's at Cliffe where you can watch the channel ferries going to and from France and enjoy spectacular views from the White Cliffs coastal walk.  Shop: 4.4 miles   Pub:1.2 miles  Coast:11.4 miles

Joris & T,

We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you

Mr H,

The cottage was cosy and relaxing. The Sanders family were friendly and could not have been more appreciative or welcoming to of my dog!

Mrs G,

The cottage was perfect for the two of us plus a small dog. The grounds are beautiful, enclosed and afford amazing views across the Kent countryside. The owner Bruce was exceptionally friendly and helpful. All in all a perfect stay for us, we left wishing we'd booked for a few more nights!

Mr F,
