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: 3 steps up to living room with French door/dining room with wooden floor/kitchen. 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.Telephone-on request. Sitting-out area and furniture. Barbecue. Parking (2 cars). No smoking. Friday to Friday. NB: Unfenced pond 50 yards.

  3. The best holiday property I have ever stayed in. March 2012.
  4. A truly stunning place to stay, offering all the peace and quiet of the countryside along with numerous nearby points of interest. The barn itself was warm, homely and much bigger than the photos implied. With lovely views from the windows, every piece of kitchen equipment you could imagine, peaceful gardens and a fully supplied wood burner, my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay, as did our dog. We will definitely be returning. Dec 2011.
  5. The property is set in beautiful grounds of a ruined abbey which add to the ambiance. The owners were most helpful. Nov 2011.
  6. Monk’s barn is a beautiful barn conversion, in a lovely setting. Very peaceful, and close to the local attractions.

  7. A lovely setting with Abby ruins, pond, horse farm, and walking trails nearby. House is in excellent condition with everything one might need, and the owners are very friendly. Great location for the White Cliffs of Dover, Dover Castle, Canterbury, etc. Highly recommended! April 2011.
  8. We were thrilled to find the converted barn in the grounds of a ruined abbey. It was a very peaceful location. The owners were extremely welcoming and made a point of coming to welcome us when we arrived. We found a splendid tea tray waiting and a bottle of wine on the table. There was everything you could possibly need; home from home, delightful. The barn was spacious, imaculately clean, the log stove was easy to light and a treat for us townies. The display of flowers in the planters outside the property were first class and beautifully maintained. You couldn’t want for anything more. April 2011.
