The Granary offers all you could need with a mezzanine level bedroom area, a wood burning stove (and electric heating) for cosiness plus a galley kitchen for preparing your meals. It offers simplicity in a world of busyness, the perfect place to just sit and stop for a while.

Cosy up together on the sofa and read that book, do a crossword or pop on the TV. There is an en-suite shower room in the property so you have everything you need for a wonderful stay. 

Outside you can stoke up the BBQ for some delicious al fresco cooking and dining. Alternatively order in a takeaway or take a stroll to the nearby pub. Of a morning the owner will bring you a simple yet delicious breakfast which will set you up ready for a wonderful walk through the barley fields nearby. Hikers will enjoy a stroll along the Elham Valley Way which is rated one of the finest walks in the country and passes by the property. 

If you wish to travel a little further then Canterbury is just half an hour away by bus or 20 minutes by car. Alternatively take to the beach at Margaret's Bay in Folkestone.
