Bumble Barn will fill you with absolute delight!  This eco barn is a true treasure and the shape and stylish interior will capture your heart from the moment you see it.  Situated in a peaceful and secluded hamlet along the old Roman road between coastal Hythe and medieval Canterbury, it is perfectly located for countryside, seaside and city activity.  The open living space, with its panoramic window and French doors, draws light, sunshine and the stunning view over the outside patio and open countryside into the room.  The master bedroom and en suite, two twin bedrooms and further bathroom, are beautifully presented within this unique space and provide comfort and versatility for friends and family looking for something special. If you can bear to leave Bumble Barn, you can walk or cycle to a variety of old country pubs or be picking up your warm croissant and locally made honey for breakfast from the village shop.    There is also the option of booking any of the other 3 properties that are located just across from Bumble Barn for a larger family group:
