Property Description

Enjoy a relaxing holiday surrounded by countryside in these barn conversions which have been decorated and fitted to a very good standard. They are situated on the owners’ working arable farm, and guests are welcome to use the footpaths crossing the farmland. Take a few steps back in time to the year of 1193 AD when you view the abbey ruins, once bustling with French monks. During the dissolution of the monasteries, Henry VIII had many stones removed from the abbey to build his fortifications at Deal and Walmer. Follow in the monks’ footsteps, (today a 20 minute car journey), and take a trip to Canterbury. Dover is 5 minutes’ drive, ideal for day trips to France or to visit its castle and admire the famous white cliffs. The properties are perfectly situated for walking and bird watching, with several good sandy beaches close by. Monks & Flint barns are adjoining. The Stables & Nell’s Barn are detached. Shop and pub 1½ miles.

All on ground floor. 2 steps up to living room with French door/dining room with wooden floor/kitchen with tiled floor. 2 bedrooms: 1 double with en-suite shower room and toilet, 1 twin with additional pull-out single (5ft 9in long). Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet. Low beams throughout.

Woodburner in living room included. Oil central heating, electricity, bed linen and towels included. Travel cot and high chair on request. Digital TV. DVD/CD and small library. Electric cooker. Microwave. Washer/dryer. Dishwasher. Fridge/freezer. Wi-fi. Sitting-out area and furniture. Barbecue. Parking (2 cars). No smoking. Friday to Friday. NB: Unfenced pond 50 yards.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. What a fabuloous place with such wonderful hosts! Would recommend taking advantage of the onsite 4 wheeler trip with Peter! An amazing location to explore the region as well. Don’t miss the short trip to visit the bones at a local church. Ask about it .. as it is not very well advertised. Oct 2012.
  2. A gold standard property, very well equipped and the welcoming touches were a bonus. May 2012.
  3. The property was excellent, in pristine condition. It was ideally situated to visit various places of interest. In my opinion it is not a suitable location for children other than very young ones. The propertior was very friendly and helpful. May 2012.
  4. Great place to stay, well located for visiting local attractions. Accommodation five star. Can we have better weather next time? April 2012.
  5. A great barn conversion with all the comforts of home. Oct 2011.
  6. Very nice place to stay. Accommodation purposely set up not using old furniture and left over bits and pieces which gives a co-ordinated feel to the property. Aug 2011.
  7. I have stayed at Flint Barn three times now, 2006,2007 and now 2011. The same excellent accommodation and superb fixtures and fittings help to make the holiday - sometimes despite the weather! June 2011.
  8. Clean and warm, couldnt fault it at all. Feb 2011.
  9. Beautifully set out and kept in an excellent condition. Oct 2010.
  10. A warm welcome and very well equipped property with lots of little extra attention to detail. Great for our toddler - safe room indoors and out. Good location - really handy to getting onto main roads to get around Kent. Would definitley stay here again. July 2010.
  11. This was really well appointed accommodation. The location was peaceful and yet only a few minutes drive from Dover. Probably the best holiday cottage we have stayed in, and we’ve had a few! June 2010.
  12. It was light and airy. June 2010.
  13. Lots to do in short driving distance welcoming owners excellent equipment level within the accommodation lots of space ample car parking peaceful grounds. May 2010.
  14. The owner was very nice and helpful, accommodation perfect, very quiet area, away from the noise of traffic. March 2010.
  15. Perfect in every way. Sept 2009.
  16. A great place to escape for peace and quiet, lovely barn conversion, wifi went down well with the kids, a nice extra touch that helped them keep up to date with friends on msn, facebook, myspace. Aug 2009.
  17. An exceptional property, a delight and credit to the owner and family. The online photos are accurate and in some ways cannot show the true extent of this fine property, ruined abbey and working farm...all outside your own door. Too many excellent points to list. From the moment we walked onto the property to the day we left this holiday accommodation is worth writing about. Walks, active farm, tranquil surroundings,ruined abbey superior accommodation. Clean, safe, all amenities included and a gracious host and family. Exceptional...a credit to the people involved! July 2009.
  18. The barn was excellent and very clean would definitely return. June 2008.
  19. Flint Barn was self catering accommodation of exceptional quality. All aspects of the facility exceeded our expectations which meant we could enjoy our holiday immediately and relax in beautiful surroundings in luxury and comfort. But let’s keep it a secret, we want to go again!! March 2007.
  20. Above our expectations. Very clean, light and airy, everyone very helpful and friendly. Would use it again. April 2007.
