Bells Forstal Farm Stables - once home to working Shire horses on the farm  - have been imaginatively converted into a stunning holiday home in a picturesque setting. Finished to an exceptionally high standard, the cottage offers guests the opportunity to sample a taste of real country living -  in luxury. Set in the heart of a mixed working farm, the cottage is surrounded by footpaths for you to explore the glorious countryside at a leisurely pace. The farm is located six miles south of the charming and historic market town of Faversham and the local area has lots of attractions to appeal to all the family. A visit to Farming World at Boughton is a must for the children, Brogdale Farm - home to the National Fruit Collection is closeby and just up the road is the beautiful Georgian house of Belmont, amid its parkland gardens houses the finest private collection of clocks in Britain! More gardens can be visited at Doddington Place with the added attraction of  birds of prey flying demonstrations. Also within easy reach are historic Canterbury, the seaside town of Whitstable - famed for its oysters and iconic Leeds Castle. Add to this the excellent road and  fast rail links to London and beyond - what better place to make your Kent holiday base?
